We are Blake; we design, create, and sell solutions that envelop your product beautifully.
We are proud to be the UKs leading independent trade envelope and packaging supplier, distributing to over 45 countries worldwide. Spanning over 3 generations and established over 40 years ago, Blake began in our CEO’s attic space; a business grown out of the love that we have for paper and print. Blake has grown since then though, and we now have 8 offices worldwide, starting in the UK, and expanding to Europe and North America. We now sell over 2 billion envelopes annually, with over 68,000 pallets dispatched per year, which is driven by our communications and desire to innovate.
We have introduced over 1600 different envelope and postal packaging products including our VITA range of plastic free and environmentally friendly packaging; all held in stock for next day delivery to the trade. We offer sustainable solutions that create memorable experiences to anyone that receives messages and products. Many people now view the envelope as a product of the past, but we have the view that the envelope is a thing of the present and the future. Our VITA range provides a great alternative to plastic and is very strong in construction and sizing, removing the consumer frustration of overpacking. This gives you the most cost effective, secure, and reliable method of delivering your ecommerce.
Through the passion for our business, we have been able to build trust with our customers and clients. Having a reliable and ethical commitment to trust like we do at Blake is important. Whether you want us to deliver to you or under plain cover to your client, the reassurance of our commitment to sound business practice is a reality.
To cater for every mailing need, we offer a high-quality print and bespoke division, with our print capabilities. This includes short run digital, litho overprinting and flexo overprinting, along with flat sheet conversation and handmade envelopes. Whether you want to design a small pack of envelopes or need a high quantity of envelopes, our web to print tool allows our customers to design the perfect envelope in colour, black or white.
As Blake continues to develop and grow, we feel that it is our responsibility to ensure that we leave a legacy for the future generations. We are very conscious of the need to be sustainable in our practice; sustainability is at the heart of everything that we do. This means that we make a conscious effort to be sustainable at every touch point, from the first contact to the final destination. We do this by looking after our staff internally, through supporting local charities, being dedicated to sound environmental stewardship with our ISO accreditations and sustainable products, and so much more.
Running alongside this, our CSR programme is one of the most essential aspects of what makes us Blake. We have created the Blake Foundation, which is the charitable arm for the Blake organisation. As we work in the paper industry, literacy and writing is very important to us. Over time, we have partnered with an amazing charity called School in a Bag, as our mission is to help as many children as possible to ensure that we make an impact and provide an education for some of the most deprived children in the world. We have helped many children around the world, but we also know the importance to help charities closer to home in Britain, through our yearly Charitable Donations and local projects.
At Blake, we will always remain to be dedicated to you in our customer care, stock and service. We thank you for your continued loyalty and support to us throughout the past 40 years, and we are excited to see what the future holds for Blake!
We are proud to be a British company!
