To all Merrill Industries Customers and Colleagues,
November is that time of year when we look back at the past year and be Thankful for all that has occurred. It is also that time of year we begin the gift giving mode. This November, Merrill Industries is thankful for our many customers and would like to highlight one customer who came to us looking for an innovative, high-quality packaging solution.
In June of 2017, Dancing Deer Baking Co. came to us asking if we could develop a “basket” shaped box for their delicious treats! Our talented design team went to work right away and came up with a corrugated gift box with lid which is good looking, fun, biodegradable and once emptied of its delicious contents, can be re-purposed for scrapbooking, sewing, crafting and even loose crayons.
“Our work with the Merrill Industries began with a loose vision of a new gift packaging piece that would complement our existing suite of packaging. Merrill, a local company to us in Boston, listened to our needs and proceeded to develop and present a number of different, creative concepts. The final “hamper boxes” were born of a great, collaborative effort between our teams. The family of hamper boxes are now a very important, beautifully branded gift option that both our direct to consumer gift givers and our corporate clients, who send gifts to their clients, have gravitated to. We continue to rely on Merrill Industries as an important partner to help us continue to present our delicious baked goods in unique and beautiful packaging.” – Brian McGinnis – Dancing Deer Baking Co. VP of Sales and Innovation
Mr. Richard Wheeler, CEO Merrill Industries stated; “The Dancing Deer Large Hamper Display as well as the new Medium Display is obviously something we are proud of, as it demonstrates Merrill Industries is not just a supplier of corrugated cartons, but we design, print, and assemble, as well.” So, every time you receive a Dancing Deer “Hamper”, you are also receiving one of Merrill Industries more fun package solutions! Let Merrill Industries design a packaging solution for you!
About Dancing Deer Baking Co.: Incorporated in April 1994 to provide high quality baked goods to accompany the growing gourmet coffee market with their specialty of cakes, sold primarily to cafes and restaurants. In 1996 expanded by buying out a line of packaged consumer goods under the Dancing Deer label. Not long after, a small retail operation began and by expanding again, their mail order business was launched.
Wishing you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving!
