How do I choose the right custom box?

With businesses needing to develop eye-catching and functional packaging, there's no better time than now to figure out how you want your products presented. What type of box do you really need? How can you ensure that every aspect, from size and color down to special touches like filler and inserts, is correctly chosen so that you and your client receiving your package can feel satisfied? The whole process can be complex, but here are the top things I look for when selecting a custom box:

Find a box that fits your product's dimensions securely.

The correct size box will keep your product safe and secure while also ensuring it doesn't cost extra to ship. Choosing a custom-sized corrugated box is the best way to skip all the headaches of the back and forth with production. However, if you don't have any boxes lying around or on hand, you can still purchase one that meets your needs by measuring its length, width, and height before purchasing it online.

Choose the right material.

When choosing the suitable material for your custom box, there are many factors to consider. The most important thing to consider is what you're shipping and how much it weighs.

Consider the environment.

How hot or cold will it be? Will it go through extreme temperature changes?  

  • Where is it going to be stored? If possible, choose a material that will not cause any harm to other items inside its package.
  • What does the package need to protect? Is it fragile, breakable, or liquid-based?

Give the wow factor

  • After situating the dimensions and contents of your box, give the wow factor a fantastic design. Custom boxes make your brand stand out from the crowd with creative and unique packaging. The best way to make an impression on customers is by giving them something they’ve never seen before!
  • So, what kind of design should you use? The sky’s the limit to what you can create with these versatile containers. You could choose a package that fits perfectly into your marketing strategy by using bright colors or an eye-catching design logo; this will help boost brand awareness while showing customers that they are getting more than just another ordinary gift.

You can find a custom box that meets your needs!

  • Choose the suitable material for your needs. The material will also affect how much weight it can hold and how long it can last in storage or transit.
  • Size matters. Your custom box needs to fit securely around your product, so ensure its dimensions are accurate before ordering.
  • Consider the environment that will store or transport your products. Are they likely to be exposed to extreme heat? Will they be stored on their sides in shipping containers? Both factors could influence which custom packaging solution is right for you and your business.
  • Give customers an experience they won't forget! As new technology becomes available, there are more options when customizing packaging materials with graphics, text, and more—so don't be afraid to get creative and think outside the box!
