Durham Box creates ultimate luxury dog advent calendar for the Herbal Dog Co
12 December 2022
Durham Box has recently worked with local firm, the Herbal Dog Co, to create the ultimate pet treat this Christmas - a luxury dog advent calendar. The limited edition festive pack, which was produced on Durham Box’s Nozomi single-pass LED inkjet digital press, contains a variety of products to keep a pooch happy all year round.
Based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the Herbal Dog Co provides an entirely animal-centric range of lotions and potions. All products, which are handmade in England, are made from natural ingredients and contain no harsh chemicals. With the environment high on the agenda for the company, sustainable packaging is used for all products, including the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET bottles for shampoos, conditioners and sprays.
In developing the pack, Durham Box used an E-flute board, the substrate providing good protection with a high-quality print finish and 100% recyclability. To facilitate the clean opening of the calendar’s 12 days of Christmas windows, speedy tear perforations provide accurate tear lines throughout the product, thereby ensuring easy access without comprising the pack’s strength. With the Nozomi being perfect for producing short-run campaigns and regional promotions, the product was primed and printed in a glossy effect finish, to accentuate the festive playful graphics.
“This is the first advent calendar, so we were keen to make sure that everything went according to plan - Durham Box didn’t disappoint,” said Herbal Dog Co’s, Hazel Kelly. “As a local company to us, we started using them during the pandemic and we have since established an excellent working relationship. Sally was great, fetched us samples to help with the design and kept us up to date, with no issues. We absolutely love the calendar and will be using Durham Box again in the near future.”
Commenting on the calendar, Durham Box’s regional sales manager, Sally Caton, said: “It was great fun working with the Herbal Dog Co. This is another great project showing the versatility, quality and impact of products produced through the Nozomi press.”
The Herbal Dog Co’s luxury dog advent calendar is available on the company’s website, their TikTok shop and selected stockists.
