Luckily today the market has recently been revolutionized by custom cardboard boxes. Rather than arranging items in standard rectangular boxes which might not conform to their required size, you could personalize cardboard boxes to suit your needs. You could either design the box in your preferred shape or create it to order with a pre-designed template. Cardboard boxes are a great way to store products, ranging from food to cosmetic goods. You could simply add an invoice and some personal details if you wish to create a bespoke product. Many companies are now taking on custom orders to customize the look of cardboard boxes for their customers.
With the increase in demand for customized products, the competition is also increasing. As such, you should now be able to find a large range of suppliers for all types of custom cardboard creations. All you need to do is search on the internet and you should soon be able to locate a number of reliable online companies that stock all types of boxes. Some of these companies specialize in a particular type of product such as shipping boxes or gift wraps while others are general suppliers of all kinds of cardboard creations. So how should you proceed?
First of all, it is important to understand what sort of custom cardboard orders you require. Many people like to have custom images included when they design their own packaging, including debossing (a process where a raised ring of foil is used to imprint an image) and foil stamping. If you require embossing done then the supplier should be able to provide this service. Otherwise, you will have to choose a supplier that does offer this service.
Many companies that supply these services also offer high-quality packaging. The packaging should be of a very high quality as high-quality cardboard will not warp or tear whilst being shipped. The packaging also needs to be durable enough to stand up to normal handling. Most boxes should be constructed with a thick, sturdy outer layer to provide maximum protection for your products during shipping.
There are two main options for packaging boxes, corrugated and flat pack. Corrugated boxes are designed to ‘flip’ over so that they can be opened up again. These are often made of heavier grade cardboard than your standard cardboard. They are more likely to be used for fine artwork and wrapping and come in a variety of colors. Flat pack packaging boxes are similar to corrugated but the company will lay the cardboard on a conveyor belt system, where the cardboard is laid out with different types of corrugated sheet foil positioned onto it.
It is important to know which type of corrugated cardboard you are using. Some boxes are made from a more absorbent type of cardboard, called heavy card, which can soak up liquids before they have time to settle on your product. This is especially problematic for bubble wrap, tissue paper and non-tissue paper products. Another problem occurs if a box has too much excess glue, or blobs of glue, stuck to its surface. This can cause damage to your merchandise and may damage the cardboard itself.
