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…
The age of digital marketing and eCommerce has presented a massive problem-slash-opportunity for merchants around the globe. The first, and perhaps most important, thing to note is that with this now-standard means of offering and shipping products, packaging is more important than ever.
Don’t believe us? Take a look at these little tidbits of info…we think you’ll find them rather insightful. According to a recent survey:
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.
What are the best packaging boxes for shipping clothes? Hands down, the C-series box is the ideal clothing box, whether you ship bulky jackets or silky scarves.
Custom designed boxes. Do they really live up to all the hype? Are they worth it? Won’t they be more expensive? More time consuming? More work to design? Perhaps. But after all the time, effort, money, research and everything else that goes into launching or manufacturing your product or brand, how you package it is arguably one of the single most important components of all. Packaging contributes to the overall success of your product once it’s at market. Miss the mark, and you may damage your entire brand perception.
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.
With roots that go directly to the heart of European style, Hugh & Crye has built their reputation on classic looks for men. Known for stylish dress shirts that offer a superior fit for their customers, the company was founded in 2009 to satisfy the need for shirts that look as great on your back as they do in the box. We’re excited to introduce you to this month’s Featured Client, Hugh & Crye!
From the board room to weekend brunch, looking sharp and professional has never been more important to men. Even the semi-casual Saturday night cocktail party demands a put-together look that men can feel confident and poised in. That’s why so many men love the shirts and blazers created by Hugh & Crye. Available in 12 unique fits to suit almost every body type, this fashion-forward company has ultimately replaced the poorly fitted off-the-rack department store shirts that so many men find unappealing and grossly unflattering. The company’s exclusive online fitting process factors in both height and body shape, providing men with a perfect fit, every time.

Once Upon a Time…

And even before the magical launch of Storybook Cosmetics, each of the sisters already had their very own successful online business – so they know the ins and outs of creating successful branded packaging.
Let’s be honest: few things are as important as coffee. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning…it’s the perfect excuse to take a break at work…it’s a safe topic of conversation in these politically divided times.
That’s why when Cooper’s Coffee asked us to design boxes for their amazing (and truly eye-opening) products, we jumped at the chance like a jumping coffee bean. We also used it as another reason to immediately go out and get a cup of coffee. (You know…for quality assurance purposes).
Now, we’re thrilled to introduce them as our latest Featured Client!
But as you’ll soon see, we didn’t even need any extra caffeine to get us jazzed up about creating a special product for this awesome company.

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.
