Here are a few business models that regularly rely on boxes with a logo, and why: Bespoke cardboard boxes and e-commerce One industry that custom packaging is heavily used in, is ecommerce. With more and more brands being based solely online, competition in nearly every niche is heating up. It’s getting harder and harder to stand out and be seen over the top of your competitors. Then, once you do have their attention, how do you make your customer love your brand? How do you make them become brand advocates so that they come back to your brand each and every time they need the products you’re selling? You do that by creating value – and you can do that by making your customer think ‘wow, I got a lot more than I thought I would get’. And custom cardboard boxes are the starting point. By delivering your product in a personalised box with your brand’s logo, you ‘wow’ your customer. You give them that sense of value and make your product feel like it’s worth a lot more than your customer paid for it. When you do this, you stay in your customer’s mind. Over time, your customer will start to associate your brand as the best solution to their problem – and you can get this ball rolling with a branded cardboard box! Custom cardboard boxes in retail stores Retail stores can also leverage the branding power of custom printed boxes. If your product is for sale on the shelves of a physical store, a custom printed box can be used in a number of ways. As you can see, custom packaging helps show off a product to the wandering eyes of your customers. You can also use your custom packaging to enhance the visual appeal of your product. Customers then see exactly what they’re getting. The product inside and the custom packaging that it comes in. Your buyer knows exactly what’s on offer, so they can make a quicker, more informed decision. visit our shop Printed boxes that keep your products safe Having a beautifully printed cardboard box is all well and good, but it’s not much good if that box doesn’t protect whatever is inside. Luckily, cardboard is an incredibly strong material, holding up to a lot of weight in many different directions. Packhelp’s range of bespoke boxes is made from corrugated cardboard. Each wall of the box consists of three layers (commonly called ‘waves’) of recycled cardboard. This creates a rigid and stable structure and adds extra protection from the outside elements. With the world slowly realising the importance of sustainable packaging, you can be sure that your bespoke boxes were a cereal box, toilet roll or a school book in a previous life!
