How to Choose the Right Custom Boxes Style for Your product?

Custom boxes or Packaging does more than just hold a product. It is a way to communicate and expose the differential and position of your product and brand. The graphics designing of outside custom boxes or packaging of a product could be the difference in whether or not your product will get picked up and purchased. In fact, the consumers read on average only some words in an entire the package; picked and buying instinctively by color, shape and familiarity of location. That means the packaging has a big role to do. It must speak for itself and sell a product without saying a word.

At Box Printing Company, we not only strive to create the custom boxes or packaging for our clients to love but also they protect the product, extend the brand, and increases sales.

Before we develop a custom box, we need to decide on the structure and substrate (paper cardboard materials to be used). And what type of box structure is best for your product.

Here are some questions to consider when you are thinking about the best structure and substrate for your package:

  • What is going in the box? How much does it weigh? What are the dimensions of the product? How many pieces are going inside the box? Do they need protected?
  • Are there any quality or performance specifications? (like: Water resistance, Grease barrier, Frozen, Child Safety, FDA compliance, etc.
  • Is a window needed to show off your product?
  • How will the product be fulfilled? If it is being fulfilled by hand, or machinery fulfilled ?
  • What is the function of this products package? it for Retailer Stores to hang? Is it for Counter top Display? Does it need to have the tear-of pre-perforated?
  • How is the box going to be shipped?
  • What are the retail shelf requirements where your product will be placed? Do the boxes need to be able to be stacked on top of each other? Is it for Retailer Stores to hang?

After gathering all those factors; we will decide what style of box is right for your product and your brand. You can visit our box style library at: to find more details and options.

Custom printed boxes and packaging are boxes generally made out of SBS (Solid Bleached Sulfate) or Kraft paperboard, which typically range from 10 pt to 24 pt cardboard. The graphic design artworks are printed directly onto substrate itself. The printed boxes are generally shipped flat for easy transportation and storage.
