new products arriving The art of Lunch range of lunchboxes exclusively from lunchboxesetc.co.uk

We are very excited at Lunchboxesetc.co.uk this week as we will be introducing a whole range of new lunchboxes this week. Combining our best-selling hard plastic lunchbox and classic artwork from the last few centuries we have created the "Art of Lunch" range of lunchboxes.

It took us a few days to decide which artists we should launch with: The Scream by Munch was an early candidate; Pablo Pick-at-it and Salvador Dhal-i were both mentioned as possibilities. Unfortunately we don't think that the Earl of Sandwich was a great artist, but if you know different, shout and we'll create a lunch box homage to the creat man!

Anyhow, we'll be adding the new lunchboxes to http://www.lunchboxesetc.co.uk/ over the next few weeks, so keep a look out!

Once again the price is £11.99 plus P&P and the design is exclusive to lunchboxesetc.co.uk

back to school lunchboxes

Well, here we are already: mid August and less than 3 weeks to go until the new school year starts in September. Not suprisingly its a busy time of year for us hear at lunchboxesetc, so you'll please excuse us if your orders take a couple of days longer than usual to process.

Not to worry though, there's still plenty of time to order a lunchbox before the first day of term!!

You could choose an insulated thermos lunchbag or a simple plain plastic lunchbox in any one of 5 colours.

If you really want a unique lunchbox then go for a personalised lunchbox - there are a number of designs to choose from or you could even send us a photo to create your own photo lunchbox.

New Personalised lunchbox design now available - Robots

We now have a third personalised lunchbox design available for purchase. Our new robots lunchbox design is a very cool retro sci-fi style - think metal mickey, lost in space, buck rogers; that kind of thing!

You can choose from a range of lunchbox colours (click through for examples) and you can personalise the lunchbox with any message you want, not necessarily a name! As with our other personalised space lunchbox and personalised under the sea lunchbox the price is £11.99 plus P&P.

We now also have the facility to simply print a message or name onto a blank lunchbox so, if you want to keep it super simple you can! For example we recently produced this box for a customer
who was having some problems with hungry colleagues at work!

We can add your own photos to the front of our lunchboxes, all you need to do is email us the photo file using your order number as a reference in the email title and we will do the rest. For best results it is important that the photograph is at least 2370x1772 pixels in size to allow us to crop it to fit the lunchbox. Message lunch boxes and photo lunchboxes are priced at £12.99 plus P&P. All these items and many more lunchboxes can be found at http://www.lunchboxesetc.co.uk/.

I was right - personlized lucnhboxes are a big hit!

I'm delighted by the response to our two new personalised lunch box designs. It has put me in mind to invite designers out there to submit their ideas for new designs. The way it would work would be that any finished designs accepted by us to sell on the website would earn a per-sale commission to be paid to the designer in perpetuity. As we already sell several thousand lucnhboxes each year you can see how the amounts payable for a really popular, big selling, design could really mount up.

I'm still in the process of writing the specifications and the rules but essentially any designs submitted would need to be approximately 20cm wide by 18cm high and of sufficient resolution to be printed. All designs need to have an area where we can insert a name for personalisation.

If there are any designers or illustrators out there that want to submit designs just contact us through the lunchboxesetc.co.uk website.
