In a recent survey, more than 40 percent of people reported that they feel like they’re judged based on their appearance. 40 percent! Are you one of them?
We all want to look our best, and that means having a smile worth, well, smiling about. But not all of us want the long term commitment that braces or other complicated dental procedures often require. Not to mention, once you’re past your teenage years, you may feel insecure about walking around with a mouth full of metal.
That’s where Six Month Smiles, this month’s Customer of the Month, comes in.
At Custom Boxes Now, we know what it’s like to start your business from the ground up, and to believe in your idea enough to do anything to keep building it. After all, that was our attitude when we started our company 50 years ago! That’s just one of the reasons we’re so excited to introduce you to our Customer of the Month, Conquest Maps.
Five years ago, when Conquest Maps was starting out, their team would make their own shipment boxes by hand, sitting on the floor wielding cardboard stock, a ruler, and a utility knife.
Imagine your favorite band is finally coming to your home city. You’ve waited for ages to see them, saved up enough for the price of a great seat, and you’re super excited to buy your ticket. But, thanks to the slow ticketing app you’re using, or because you decided to go to the physical box office and were too late, the tickets to your dream concert are all sold out – before you had the chance to get yours!
Ticketing companies like TicketBiscuit, Custom Boxes Now’s Client of the Month, make sure that nightmare scenarios like this one don’t happen! Plus, TicketBiscuit is always evolving and making sure they incorporate the never-ending updates and new platforms of technology into their services, so you never have to worry about missing another event. We especially appreciate the fact that TicketBiscuit’s values are in line with our own: just like we provide a variety of boxes and packaging needs, TicketBiscuit works hard to offer ticketing options for many different types of events. Some of their most popular are ticketing solutions for comedy clubs, music venues, festivals, tour operations, and dance recital ticketing.
Whether you’re looking to de-clutter your home or are in desperate need of more space in your shoebox Manhattan apartment, wouldn’t it be great if you could just hang your TV and stereo components right on your walls?! Well, thanks to the space-saving geniuses at HIDEitMounts.com, Custom Boxes Now’s Customer of the Month, you can!
Of course, wall mounts aren’t just great for design purposes. They can also help to gather and hide wires so you can prevent potential falls, keep your children safe, and make sure that your four-legged-friends are protected. We especially love that HIDEitMounts.com sends you all the necessary screws and anchors along with your wall mount, saving you the headache of a confusing trip to the hardware store.
At Custom Boxes Now, we love highlighting some of our favorite clients every month. It’s always tough to narrow it down to a single favorite, but this month, we’re highlighting the ever-fun Datebox. Datebox is at fun-filled couples’ subscription box service that adds some excitement to long-term relationships or helps newer couples get to know each other even better.
Let’s face it: planning a date every weekend, no matter how much your city has to offer, can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Datebox takes the anxiety out of planning the date by delivering a “readymade” box including everything you need for a memorable and totally unpredictable night with your better half. The best part? All the dates can be done at home, so you can avoid the stress of having to catch a cab, sit in traffic or fight the exhaustion after a long week of being on the go.
This month, we’re especially excited to introduce our readers and customers to our Client of the Month: Room Dividers Now, who called on us to create their branded shipping boxes.
With rent prices skyrocketing and Airbnb on the rise, chances are you’ve struggled with how to divide your apartment or house into separate rooms in a way that not only looks elegant, but also offers genuine privacy. The folks at Room Dividers Now had the same problem, and they decided to offer a solution: they created a wide range of affordable, easy-to-install, able to withstand even your wildest parties room dividers.
They came to us looking for a shipping option that matched the integrity, quality and attention to customer service of their company and products. Oh, and because we also have “Now” in our company name, meaning that, like Room Dividers Now, we’ll also deliver lasting results fast. Since their dividers come in all shapes and sizes, they needed a variety of types of boxes and dimensions from us. So far, we’ve created five different box styles and sizes for Room Dividers Now, and we are looking forward to making even more.
At Custom Boxes Now, we are dedicated to creating quality packaging that fits with your brand, personality or, in the case of our Client of the Month, your team spirit! We are especially honored to announce our collaboration with the official team store for the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers at CavaliersTeamShop.com.
One of the things we really appreciate about the Cavaliers Team Shop is their commitment to offer a wide variety of merchandise and sizes of the latest and greatest Cavs gear. They offer Big & Tall sizing options for men, ladies fitted t-shirts and jerseys and, for your littlest Cavs fan, infant, newborn and toddler options. And did we mention they even have a water bowl for your furry friends?
Whether you’re a pet owner, interested in animal welfare or just curious about the latest pet-related technology, chances are you’ve heard of the Permanent Microchip, an implant used to track and protect animals. This month, Great Northern and Custom Boxes Now are especially thrilled to feature our “Client of the Month” for January: Microchip ID Systems.
The company, which manufactures ISO-Certified microchips that are humanely and safely implanted in animals, helps to track down lost pets, monitor the activities of endangered species both in the wild and in research and can even benefit the work of zoologists who are looking to understand the behavioral habits of beloved animals so they can increase their quality of life. They even make a special “EquineChip” for equestrians who need to make sure their horses are in tip-top shape for upcoming races and games. And regardless of the size of the animal (we’re not kidding…they even make products for frogs!), Microchip ID Systems can help keep your four-legged family member safe, by making something that can be inserted into your pet, pain-free. With over 5,000 pet searches to their database every day, they’ve reunited countless animals with their owners.
Subscription box services have come into their own in the past few years. Packed with toys, jewelry and apparel and based on a specific theme, these collections require the perfect container to allow them to shine in the competitive marketplace. While the contents are the real star, the boxes in which these items are shipped can be of critical importance in setting the stage for the customer and for raising awareness of these subscription services among the general public. Custom Boxes Now (CBN) recently had the opportunity to work with an up-and-coming entry in the subscription box marketplace. Fandom of the Month is a new business that provides curated collections of jewelry and accessories for movie and television fans. The entire CBN staff is proud to name Fandom of the Month our client of the month.
Unique Items Require Innovative Packaging
Erin from Fandom of the Month approached us after demand for her curated subscription box expanded far more quickly than she had anticipated. As a small, family-owned business, Fandom of the Month needed affordable and attractive boxes to help build their brand and to showcase the items included in each collection, which typically includes key chains, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pins designed to suit the fandom community. CBN was happy to take on the challenge and started work right away to design a box ideal for these unique movie, book and television-themed items.
At Custom Boxes Now, we specialize in lightning-fast turnaround times and customized packaging solutions for business. We recently had the chance to work with MaverickHill, one of the most forward-thinking retailers in the consumer market. MaverickHill’s brand concept revolves around female empowerment in the college setting and highlights positive affirmations for young women. Their innovative product lines required an equally cutting-edge packaging approach. MaverickHill’s curated and themed subscription boxes offer a budget-friendly way to accumulate a power wardrobe complete with accessories for college-aged women. This combination of social responsibility and creative marketing inspired us to name MaverickHill our client of the month.
