Why Use

Why use Create-this?. The directors at Create-This have been in the specialist world of designing and manufacturing cardboard engineered items for over 25 years and Create-this is now in its tenth year. We specialise in producing cardboard engineered products these include ,direct mail items (including pop up mailers) , presentation boxes, presentation packaging, subscription and mailing boxes, advent calendars and point of sale items through to simple self make products. One of our key strengths is the ability to design and manufacture in very quick timescales where required. All our products are produced in the UK, there is no 12 week lead-time. We have produced 1500 hand assembled boxes in 4 working days – although we do generally like to have more time, this shows it can be done. We pride ourselves in our flexible service and “yes attitude”, we are always willing to try and achieve what can seem impossible. Where required we offer a quick turnaround on many of our projects but we will never commit ourselves to a timeline we don’t believe is achievable.

Although we have a wide range of existing direct marketing ideas and promotional packaging solutions we do not hold any stock packaging solutions, everything we produce is made to order. There is no minimum or maximum order quantity. The product whether it is direct mail or promotional boxes are designed with the quantities in mind. We have 3 websites, this Create-this site is our new updated company site and gives a good overview of our products. We also have two other sites – www.packagingandpos.com which shows a different selection of our bespoke promotional boxes, point of sale and other unique projects. www.directmailideas.co.uk showcases a wide range of our direct mail (pop up mailers and more) products.

With a lot of these products it is easier to understand how they work by seeing them in action and we have therefore produced a large number of videos, these are available on by clicking here

Our office is situated in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire putting us within easy reach of London and the motorway networks. Our sales staff covers the whole of the UK and will happily visit you to discuss your requirements and present our solutions.
