We then continue to the manufacture of the packaging, and often also pack the gifts or marketing items and deliver to events on behalf of the customer.

About The Owner and her staff

The owner of Packaging Source,  Sonja Marnewick, started her career in the corporate world in 1990 and as a professional, working for other individuals and corporate companies ranging from Healthcare, Information Technology, Human Resources and also in the marketing and manufacturing industries. Exposure to such a wide variety of industries enabled her to be sensitive to the needs of small as well as large corporate companies, and the people that work for them.
Sonja had the pleasure of co-authoring published books on accounting and information technology, and has designed numerous websites for a wide variety of clients. Her lifelong interest in crafts, arts and design combined with her entrepreneurial spirit made her the perfect candidate to enter the personalized gift packaging arena in 2006. After doing trial runs, market research and training, Packaging Source was born in 2007 as a one woman operation, but with hard work and dedication, she soon grew The Packaging Source into one of the strongest and most popular gift box - and gift packaging manufacturing companies in South Africa.
Today (2014) The Packaging Source cc consists of office, sales and accounting staff, and 10 trained full time, as well as an additional 15 trained part time factory workers.  Our teams are trained in the skills of manufacturing and assembly of custom designed gift boxes, gift bags (gift carry bags), ribbons (incliding awareness ribbons).
We did not and will never lose sight of our humble beginnings and still strive to give each of our customers the personal attention they deserve.  Today we thrive on meeting with our new and existing clients to discuss their individual gift packaging requirements and to further their reach in the market, with us as their packaging partner, all the way.
