The world of custom printed packaging and bespoke boxes is vast.

Personalised boxes are used by ecommerce brands, retail brands, event planners for high scale weddings, and just about any other reason you can think of.

Until now, designing a high-quality, custom-printed box was a costly and time-consuming process. You would need to send the perfect design to a printing house, and then you’d need to order a minimum of a few thousand pieces.

But with modern technology, it’s not a lot easier, faster and cheaper for you to design your bespoke packaging - for whatever reason you need it

Sourcing custom cardboard boxes shouldn’t be painful

As a business owner, you’ve got a lot on your mind.

On your daily to-do list, packaging options are not that high.

Therefore, packaging should be hassle-free.

Flicking through websites of countless packaging manufacturers, obviously, isn’t hassle-free. You need a reliable provider that can quickly deliver what you need, on time and cost-efficiently.

Designing your own custom printed cardboard boxes

With personalised boxes being used for so many reasons, being able to design your own box means that your box can fulfil the role you need it to.

  • An ecommerce brand wants it’s custom packaging with a logo to create a memorable unboxing experience
  • An event planner wants their custom boxes to blend in with the colours used in the rest of the wedding reception
  • A startup wants an onboarding box that echoes their branding to make their new employee feel welcome

Using the Packhelp online editor, you can design and order custom printed boxes exactly as you’d like them.

High-quality custom printed boxes can be printed and used by anyone for any reasons. Here are a few business models that regularly rely on boxes with a logo, and why:

Bespoke cardboard boxes and e-commerce

One industry that high-quality custom packaging is heavily used in, is ecommerce.

With more and more brands being based solely online, competition in nearly every niche is heating up. It’s getting harder and harder to stand out and be seen over the top of your competitors.

Then, once you do have their attention, how do you make your customer love your brand?

How do you make them become brand advocates so that they come back to your brand each and every time they need the products you’re selling?

You do that by creating value - and you can do that by making your customer think ‘wow, I got a lot more than I thought I would get’.

And custom cardboard boxes are the starting point.

SHEYN packaging design

By delivering your product in a personalised box with your brand’s logo, you ‘wow’ your customer. You give them that sense of value and make your product feel like it’s worth a lot more than your customer paid for it.

When you do this, you stay in your customer's mind. Over time, your customer will start to associate your brand as the best solution to their problem - and you can get this ball rolling with a branded cardboard box!

Custom cardboard boxes in retail stores

Retail stores can also leverage the branding power of custom printed boxes. If your product is for sale on the shelves of a physical store, a custom printed box can be used in a number of ways.

As you can see, custom packaging helps show off a product to the wandering eyes of your customers.

You can also use your custom packaging to enhance the visual appeal of your product.

Customers then see exactly what they’re getting.

Your buyer knows exactly what’s on offer, so they can make a quicker, more informed decision.

Printed boxes that keep your products safe

Having a beautifully printed cardboard box is all well and good, but it’s not much good if that box doesn’t protect whatever is inside.

Luckily, cardboard is an incredibly strong material, holding up to a lot of weight in many different directions.

bespoke cardboard

Packhelp’s range of bespoke boxes is made from corrugated cardboard. Each wall of the box consists of three layers (commonly called ‘waves’) of recycled cardboard.

This creates a rigid and stable structure and adds extra protection from the outside elements.

With the world slowly realising the importance of sustainable packaging, you can be sure that your bespoke boxes were a cereal box, toilet roll or a school book in a previous life!

Extra accessories for your custom printed boxes

Whether you’re using custom cardboard boxes for an event, ecommerce brand or retail store, there’s more to bespoke packaging than just a printed box.

Personalised Tissue Paper

Tissue paper is a semi-transparent, extremely light and thin layer of paper. It’s also fully biodegradable and free of sulfur-based inks.

Tissue paper adds a protective layer to the inside of your packaging, but it also adds a little excitement to your unboxing experience.

Just like your bespoke packaging, tissue paper can also be designed in Packhelp’s online editor. Pick the colour of your paper, upload your logo and arrange your pattern.

Custom Packing tape

Branded packing tape is the most common packaging supply to go alongside your custom cardboard boxes.

Sealing up a branded box with some tape that has your logo on it is a fantastic way to make a great first impression.

The tape may be a small feature, one that you may have overlooked, but it’s a packaging element that takes your customer first thought from ‘oh this is nice’ to ‘oh wow, this is fantastic’.

Create high-quality custom packaging tape to 'wow' your customer now!

Custom Printed Paper Bags

Branded paper bags are a fantastic addition to a retail store. Bags with your logo really add a little touch of class and sophistication to your brand.
