Who we are

Herbert Walkers is a family-owned and operated business based in West Yorkshire. With our 75-year history in the industry, we’re old hands. But by embracing the new – from trends to technologies – we drive innovation and deliver the creativity our clients value.

This is just part of the reason we’re chosen to deliver impactful print and packaging projects for leading high-street retailers and some of the most internationally-admired names. We pride ourselves on our ability to articulate a brand’s unique value and identity, enabling them to stand out on shelf with exceptional quality.

(in a die-cut nutshell)

Our history

We’ve come a long way since 1946, when William Walker and his father Herbert set up shop and started selling shade cards for knitting wool! In the 70s, the company developed its greetings cards offering when Herbert Walkers won the Co-op Christmas card contract.

Since then, we have fine-tuned our specialist finishing skills, including die-making, embossing, and foiling. It is this experience, along with the technical ability to transform flat designs into 3D printed pieces, that made our progression into packaging production in 2013 so successful.

Our purpose

Herbert Walkers exists as a trusted print and packaging partner for brands and their packaging design agencies, delivering innovative, premium packaging solutions with an under-one-roof service.

Our values


Continued investment in people, skills, equipment, and technology underpins our strategy of embracing change and opportunity in the sector.


We strive to meet the highest industry standards, which is why we are accredited with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and the BRC Packaging Materials Certification.


We work collaboratively with our clients to create innovative, exciting packaging while providing a time-efficient and cost-effective service.
