Packaging company Duo UK has secured a deal to provide polythene packaging to Ireland-based footwear retailer Donaghys Shoes.

For the first time, Donaghys Shoes will use branded mailing bags to distribute its products that are sold online.

The cost of the branded polythene bags will be similar to that of off-the-shelf plain grey bags.

"What impressed us most about Duo UK was their passion, creativity, and positive attitude to finding a packaging solution that worked for us."

Donaghys Shoes e-commerce director Peter McVeigh said: "What impressed us most about Duo UK was their passion, creativity, and positive attitude to finding a packaging solution that worked for us.

“They opened our eyes to how beneficial branded packaging is for our customers shopping experience and for increasing awareness of our brand.

"We're looking forward to working much more closely with Duo UK in the future, their valuable advice, short lead times and high quality product has impressed us to date and I'm sure will continue to impress us moving forward."

Duo UK noted that branded packaging offers a professional feel to products, and helps to increase repeat sales and recommendations.

With two polythene manufacturing sites in the UK, the company currently provides packaging to retail, mail order, e-retail and industrial brands.

In May, Duo UK was selected to design, manufacture, and supply packaging for luxury fashion brand Claudio Lugli.
