Custom Packaging FAQ
Would my business benefit from custom packaging?
The truth is, there probably isn’t a business out there that wouldn’t directly benefit from some type of graphic packaging. Putting effort into the packaging experience helps continue your brand story even when your product has left your store and has arrived on your customer’s doorstep. From branded makeup shipping materials, cardboard boxes and more, we can help enhance your customer experience from shop floor to doorstep!
We’ve helped a ton of businesses with packaging options. In fact, we’ve even assisted with marijuana packaging!
What are some examples of businesses that use graphic packaging or branded shipping?
Think of the last box you received on your doorstep. It was probably branded in some way. In fact, USPS has examples of branded boxes when you go to the post office. However, why advertise for the United States Postal Service, or even FedEx when you could be advertising for yourself? Here are some great examples of branded packages you could recognize from a mile away!
- Amazon cardboard boxes
- ipsy metallic fuschia envelope mailers
- Blue Tiffany’s box
Does packaging play a part in product identification?
It absolutely does! Custom packaging that is high-quality and protective inspires confidence in consumers. In fact, 40% of consumers are more likely to purchase from a company with a good container design. Although you may think this isn’t the best use of your money, it’s a long-term investment to inspire repeat business and passively advertise your product!
How is product packaging regulated?
Depending on the mail carrier service that you use, there will be different regulations on size, weight, and contents of your box or envelope. Here are the packaging guidelines for UPS, for example! The guidelines may vary between other carriers like FedEx or USPS, so make sure to double check before ordering your materials!
What is flexible packaging?
Flexible packaging has become a popular and cost-effective option for shipping. Flexible packaging refers to any shipping option that isn’t rigid. For example, custom shipping boxes are not flexible. However, bags, pouches, and custom poly mailers are flexible packaging. We offer all of these options and are able to customize them easily.
Most businesses would choose this shipping option to cut costs. It’s a great option for lightweight, non-fragile items.
What is frustration free packaging?
This set of shipping regulations has recently been championed by Amazon Marketplace. Basically, sellers who provide products through Amazon must commit to frustration-free packaging. This means containers made of 100% recyclable materials, easy-open and original packaging. In essence, as few layers as possible for efficiency!
With the popularity of Amazon’s commitment to frustration-free shipping materials, many other sellers, corporations, and marketplaces are jumping on board to offer the same thing. So you may be wondering what this means for you. Keep in mind that when a product shipping giant like Amazon adopts a standard like this, many consumers will expect it from everyone. It’s always wise to get in front of a trend before you are left behind it!
