Are you wondering how to make custom boxes for shipping? Are you unsure if you even need to bother? Let’s explore this topic together for a bit…

We love sharing our new clients with you. And we get even more excited when we love their products, too. That’s exactly what happened when we recently started working with ProGlow.
The ProGlow Difference
ProGlow was developed and is owned by Dr. Pauline Haugen, who as a life-long athlete, believes wholeheartedly that nutrition and food have the power to heal. But she didn’t stop there, with just her belief. Dr. Haugen actually developed a product to support that belief (hello, ambition!).
Shipping clothes is easy when you have the right box. Clothes are lightweight, making them relatively affordable to ship, so you can budget more money toward the things that matter, like branding your custom boxes and creating an experience for your customers.

It can’t be stressed enough how important it is to provide clear, crisp, high-quality images and professional-looking photographs when it comes to your branding and packaging. Consumers today are both savvy and unforgiving – and the simple fact is, one poor image can result in the loss of a sale.
Fortunately, there are a variety of easy methods you can use (even if you’re DIY’ing your photos), to make sure you get the best possible images for your packaging and other branding efforts. The following tips will help produce great product images, even if you have a small budget to work with.
You put a lot into your brand. In many ways, it’s like your baby. Every detail, every decision, every word, color and image…you’ve thought about them all. So there’s no way you’re going to drop the ball when it comes to your packaging…right?
It’s perhaps one of the most important (and often overlooked) parts of a business plan – packaging. Your packaging says a lot about you and your brand image. Even if you don’t realize it. And at the end of the day, packaging might make more of a difference than you may think.
According to recent marketing research and studies done on packaging and consumer behavior, 52 percent of online buyers say they are more likely to shop a brand again if their items arrive in premium packaging. And some brands have seen consumer interest increase by as much as 30 percent when it’s obvious to their customer that packaging is a top priority.
Coffee. For so many of us, it’s the most amazing moment of our day. In fact, did you know that, after petroleum, coffee is the world’s most valuable commodity? That’s not all. The average American spends about $1092 annually on coffee, and we’re not even the most caffeinated nation in the world.
It’s safe to say, when Brooklyn-based Toby’s Estate Coffee Roasters called on us to help design boxes for packaging their delicious cold brew coffee, we jumped at the chance like we were running for that first cup of the morning!
We know the majority of Brooklyn, New York residents take their coffee pretty seriously, so we sought out to make packaging that reflects just how important coffee actually is in our day-to-day lives. Our goal was to intrigue Toby’s Estate Coffee customers before they even finish their first sip – some may even go so far as to call it love at first sip.
How Does Packaging Contribute to Product Identification?
Question: What does your branding actually say about your brand? Does it tell your story? Catch the eye of your consumer? Set you apart from your competitor?
Another question: Are you using your branding to maximize sales? Because you can, and should be.
How? Easy – your packaging.
If your branding and product packaging aren’t working overtime for you, we’ve got some bad news for you. You’re missing a HUGE…no, make that: H-U-G-E opportunity. The good news? You can fix it! The better news? We’re here to help you!
Custom packaging and branding makes a bigger difference than ever to savvy, demanding customers who now look for more than just the product. Today’s consumer wants more, expects more, from the brands they support.
Finding the perfect box to mail orders in can be more challenging than it may seem. Custom mailer boxes do double duty in the land of shipping. Not only can a custom box be the perfect fit, but the potential these boxes have for customization can also be a branding blockbuster, furthering your presence in the market place, making it an investment that all but pays for itself.
But…What Are Custom Mailer Boxes?
Custom mailer boxes are exactly what they sound like: custom-sized, regular, rigid mailing boxes with hinged lids that can be totally customized (inside and out!) and withstand the shipping process. They’re often meant for packaging small items or a selection of product – think: subscription boxes – but in truth, as the name would imply, these custom boxes can come in all sizes and are intended to be precisely the perfect shape for your exact shipping needs.
