WINSFORD, UK (2nd May2017) - Jiffy Packaging has been named in the Business Superbrands® listings for 2017.
Superbrands® is a listing of the UK’s strongest brands published annually since 1995. The brands are chosen by an Expert Council of B2B marketing experts and 2,500 individual business professionals from across the UK*.

 

WINSFORD, UK (29th February 2016) - A programme of brand protection, launched by Jiffy Packaging last summer to protect the coveted Jiffy brand name, has seen a dramatic reduction in the number of products sold under the Jiffy name, but not actually manufactured by the company.

The team at Jiffy started by targeting Ebay sellers who were either innocently or deliberately passing off the Jiffy name by listing products ‘Jiffy Bags’ which were not Jiffy products at all.

At the start of the campaign approximately seventy percent of products being sold on a page on the online marketplace as Jiffy products were not actually Jiffy products. Following the clampdown this figure has dropped to less than twenty percent.

WINSFORD, UK (18th November 2015) – Jiffy Packaging is this week launching a series of product snapshot films, 

aimed at enhancing the market’s understanding of Jiffy’s extensive range.

The seven films cover Jiffy Bubble Film, Jiffy Foam, AirKraft®, MailMiser®,
Superlite®, Earth Aware® and the Jiffy Padded Bag®.

Jiffy manufactures a wide range of high quality, market leading products and the films focus on the USPs, and features and benefits of each, allowing buyers and
specifiers to make appropriate choices.

WINSFORD, UK (6th October 2015) - Jiffy Packaging has unveiled a new fleet of striking branded trailers which illustrate the breadth of Jiffy’s product range.

 
Created under the guidance of Jiffy’s sales and marketing director, Fiona MacDougall, the twelve new trailers feature a high impact design which showcases products including Jiffy’s bubble film, bubble lined mailers, sheet and technical foams.

 

Speaking about the new trailers, MacDougall said, “We wanted to create a design which was at once visually stimulating and communicated our wide and varied portfolio to illustrate we're much more than a manufacturer of Jiffy mailing bags.
