Customer feedback:

This is a piece of feedback from a customer of ours here at Elliott Packaging. We hope it speaks for itself!

“I opened a chain of cake shops in London during 2018 and wanted to use the most eco-friendly type of packaging that I could find. After looking at numerous kinds of bags we ending up choosing twisted paper handle bags. We opted for a 100gsm brown kraft recycled paper and the bags look great, they are very good marketing tools, especially when printed with our logo which is great advertising when our customers leave the shops.

Originally, we were undecided in whether to go for luxury rope handle bags or twisted paper handle bags but in the end decided that the twisted paper handle bags were a stylish and good cost-effective alternative.

We would highly recommend Elliott Packaging Ltd, they made the buying process really easy from start to finish and were great in explaining everything clearly and in detail. Delivery was on time and they were also very competitive.”
