How to Create Custom Boxes

Making a good first impression on your customers is critical to keeping them coming back for more. Custom boxes can help you accomplish this goal. Their personalized touches and visual appeal give customers a unique and engaging unboxing experience. Not only can they keep customers coming back to your business for more, but they can also save you money on transportation costs, increase brand awareness, and more.

So, what does the box creation process look like? Here, we will break it down step by step.

1. Consider Your Packaging Style

Before you can create your custom boxes, it is important to understand what style fits your brand identity and the product you are selling. There are many packaging styles to choose from, and a quality box manufacturer will be able to help you decide what’s best for you.

Mailer Boxes

These paperboard boxes are designed to ship and store products. Mailer boxes have interlocking flaps and wings that make them easy to assemble without the need for tape. They are great for shipping lighter objects that are easy to carry. They can also be used to ship fragile items with the addition of protective materials.

Shipping Boxes

These durable boxes are great for shipping heavy or bulky products; however, they come in both large and small sizes, so they can accommodate almost all products. Like mailer boxes, shipping boxes are created from corrugated material and are known for being easy to assemble. They have flaps on both the bottom and top that can be taped together to seal the box for a secure shipment.

Product Boxes

These smaller boxes are specifically designed to impress customers. They are created with the goal of drawing consumer attention to your product once it is on the shelves. Product boxes can have designs printed on them, drawing in consumers with multiple colors and interesting graphics. They can also feature text, which can further delight your customers or inform them about important information.

2. Decide on Your Dimensions

When designing your custom box, it is important to consider the size and shape of your product and any other packaging supplies you choose to include. You want the dimensions of the box to fit your product perfectly so it cannot move around during transit or while in storage.

3. Create the Design

Here, you can decide on custom graphics, text, or any other elements you want printed directly on your box. This includes both interior and exterior design elements, to keep your customer engaged through the entire unboxing experience. A custom box manufacturer can help you create a detailed and attractive prototype so you know exactly what your product will look like when it gets to the shelf.

4. Approve the Prototype

Once you have decided on the final design, a prototype of your box will be created by your manufacturer. At this stage, you can make any final tweaks necessary to make your box pop, and, once your prototype is approved, you can order a run for customer consumption.
