Managing director Michael Barter says the move has been prompted by continued volume decline in the envelope market and recognition that postal packaging is still an area of growth across much of Europe.

He said: “At Blake we pride ourselves on our pioneering ‘can do’ approach to business, so when we saw a repeated year-on-year reduction in envelope volumes we had to take stock and decide how best to maintain and grow our business. We came to the conclusion that to continue our 16 years of growth, we had to look outside of envelopes.”

Blake’s Purely Packaging range encompasses everything from metallic bubble pockets, book wraps and postal tubes to DX poly bags and one-touch postal boxes. It is available through Office Depot, Viking, Lyreco, VOW and Spicers.

The company also offers bespoke packaging solutions created to a customer’s specification by Blake’s in-house design team.
