As the amount of solid board envelopes we manufacturer on site in Wolverhampton continues to increase, this month we thought we would do a quick review of calendar companies (a big user of all board envelopes) at the recent Spring Fair show in Birmingham. The Spring Fair is the UK’s No.1 gift & home trade event and it bodes well for Opal Envelopes in the future.
It was another busy and vibrant show. The Spring Fair has now been running for over 65 years and has become Europe’s leading presentation of gift & home products. Being a bespoke envelope manufacturer the area that we focused on was the Greeting and Gift hall and it was good to experience the buzz in the atmosphere from both the exhibitors and buyers throughout the hall.
One of the main things that jumped out to me was the amount of different styles and types of calendars that the exhibitors were selling and even more encouraging was how busy their stands were with potential buyers. Obviously this was a pleasing sight to us at Opal Envelopes as we are manufacturing more and more heavyweight calendar envelopes (some of which were on show at the Spring Fair) on our Moll folding machine and judging by the Spring Fair this shows no sign of stopping.
Don’t forget that not only can we produce solid board envelopes we can also manufacture pockets up to 457x324mm (C3) on our paper folding machines, which tends to come in handy for some of the larger lighter calendars out there.
