Pillow packs / Pillow boxes


Ostle and Maillard offer you a whole host of packaging solutions which are all functional, stylish and eco friendly.   We produced these pillow packs for our surfing buddies at Paddle Pillow over in Ireland to accommodate their innovative surfing accessory.

The pillow boxes we sell are made to measure and can be branded by our design team for you. They have elliptical ends and simply pop into a curved pillow shape.  They are great for posting all kinds of objects, or as retail point of sale for a wide range of items.

Please feel free to call us today to discuss your pillow pack project.


Retail packaging mistakes you should avoid!


Approximately 70% of all purchasing decisions aren’t made until a customer is actually inside the shop.  A big part of those decisions is packaging.  You could have the best product in the world, but if the packaging isn’t appealing you won’t sell your product.

The design and look of your packaging is therefore imperative to the success of your product and you need to do everything you can to make sure it’s the best that it can be.

Here are a few mistakes  you should avoid:

  • Not designing for your target customer

Whether it’s bespoke printed packaging or industrial packaging, you’re not designing for your boss,  you’re doing it for your target customer.  Every packaging design must be produced with the customer in mind and nobody else.  If the packaging isn’t convenient and appealing to your ideal customers you are going to have difficulty selling products.
