Chocolate is, and has always been, a luxury good. Yes, it has become more accessible compared to, say, the 1500s, but there are still many brands that produce high-end, opulent chocolate products. Historically, chocolate has been expensive to produce as cacao beans were difficult to grow and complex to produce.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m stressed the first thing I reach for is a (bitter)sweet piece of chocolate!
With its wide availability, chocolate has done the impossible – remained a luxury, while becoming easily attainable. During this year, the market size of chocolate production is approximately CAD$2.7 billion, and is expected to increase by 10.4% compared to previous years.
This growth means a natural increase in the need for chocolate packaging. Of course you can opt for generic packaging and let your confections do the talking – but that’s no fun!
Over the last few months, the LeKAC Pack has been hard at work to develop our latest chocolate catalogue. Read on to find out more!
Love at First Bite
As a reminder, all of our products are completely customizable – you determine the size, shape, design and finishing options. Our goal is to create your dream packaging products – bags, boxes, calendars and more!
Made with a minimum of 350g kraft paperboard, our folding cartons come in various structures:
- Base & Lid Boxes
- Base & Lid Boxes with Thicker Borders
- Drawer Boxes
- Top Tuck Boxes
- Chocolate Bar Boxes
- Chocolate Bar Envelopes
- Advent Calendars
Folding cartons are a fantastic, cost-effective option that’s lightweight with unlimited design potential. Popular options with most of our clients is to add foil or PET windows for extra pizzazz.
Our pricing is inclusive of a white or brown kraft base (your choice!) and a one-colour logo print. But don’t think that’s all you can do! Add a full coverage print, Spot UV, embossing or even lamination to really differentiate your brand!
Our luxurious rigid boxes are made of a thick greyboard material and a white paper base. These boxes also come in a variety of structures, and provide the perfect gifting opportunity for family, friends and coworkers alike:
- Base & Lid Boxes
- Drawer Boxes
- Top Magnetic Closure Boxes
- Neck/Cuff Boxes
Also known as set-up boxes, rigid boxes offer a perfectly balanced mix of product protection and luxury.
Our pricing for our rigid boxes include a full colour full coverage print, and an option of matte or glossy lamination. Popular add-on options include foil logos, embossing and swapping out our regular white paper base for a fancy paper finish!
If you’re looking for presentation and protection for shipping out products then look no further! Our mailer boxes are made of a thick corrugated paper (300g cardboard, E-flute) and are a staple in today’s economy – especially if you’re an online-only retailer.
Our pricing includes an option of white or brown kraft base and a one colour logo print. If you want something a little more eye-catching, opt for a multicolour full coverage print or even a laminated finish.
*Please note that we have multiple supplier options for these products and so turnaround times may vary where applicable.
Paper Pouches & Bags
Paper pouches and bags scream versatility and convenience – what better way to bundle up your chocolates that by using one of these options?
- Paper Pouches
- 120g Kraft Paper Bags
- 210g White Cardboard Bags
Our paper pouches come with a wide base (or customized to whatever you need!) so that they can stand alone, and are finished off with a wire closure to keep your goodies fresh longer. If you’re looking for an extra clean finish, opt to add an inner wax coating.
The 120g Kraft paper bags are a common packaging product and with good reason – they’re reliable and hold up to 10lbs confidently. Pricing for our kraft paper bags includes a choice between a brown and white kraft base, one colour logo print and a twisted paper handle. For a different look, consider upgrading to a flat paper handle (as shown in photos).
Want to achieve a premium look at a fraction of the cost? Our 210g white cardboard bags are sure to impress your clientele. Our pricing will include a white cardboard base, choice of glossy or matte lamination (or none!), and a choice of a rope, ribbon or grosgrain handle!
Finally, our favourite part of the packaging process. The pièce de résistance. The finishing flourish.
In case you couldn’t tell, we love accessories! No packaging suite is complete without one or two accessory options – just like jewellery (the girls that get it, get it). Not sure what you may need? Here are some suggestions:
- Paper Dividers
- Individual Tray Inserts
- Cutout Inserts
- Thank You Cards
- Paper Sleeves
- Stickers (for closure or just for fun!)
- Candy Box Protection Pads
- Wax Paper
