Introducing Portaglas! The amazing new storage box for glasses

We can almost hear you thinking – “Amazing? Really?? A glass storage box?!”

Well we could give it other adjectives like practical and efficient, before consigning it to history as just another functional box for storing things. But the truth is, if you’re in the catering, events and hospitality business, or a wine retailer offering a glass hire service, you’ll appreciate that it’s little functional boxes like this that can literally save your life.

WBC supporting UK Record Store Day 19th April

In 2007, more than 700 indie record stores in the United States came together to celebrate what is arguably seen today as a culture in its own right – records, lp’s, vinyl call them what you will. Now, with the UK getting behind it in a big way, 7 years on it’s bigger and brighter than ever and culminates in a one-day extravaganza of independent retailers joining with indie artists alike with street parties, in store quizzes, special artist appearances and special vinyl releases.

Most of the staff here at WBC HQ are totes obsessed with vinyl themselves, so our very own sales manager Elyse Bacon (no relation to Kevin) went home, measured a few of our bags for life to find the perfect one for vinyl, and she’s put together a special record store bag offer for retailers. 20% off our super-fast UK Express service. That’s delivery of your very own cotton record-sized tote bags printed with your company logo or message in just 7 DAYS? Jeez Louise – the world was created in less time.
