You’ve read about customized packaging. Maybe you even have an idea of what you want. Before you place an order, make sure that you have all of your ducks in a row with these tips.
- Know What You Need
The whole point of custom packaging is that it’s uniquely suited to your business needs. Do you require RSC or and FOL containers? Do you want something of a particular size, or would you prefer overlapped, half-slotted or full-slotted designs? There’s no wrong answer here. It’s all about what you need for your own professional services.
- Create a Budget
This might sound obvious, but you’ll want to stick to a budget when ordering boxes and other forms of packaging. Remember that prices are usually by the unit rather than in bulk. You might also have to pay shipping charges to actually get the boxes to you.
- Consider the Supplier
Are you buying directly from the manufacturer, or are you going through a middleman? Do they have good ratings, rankings, reviews and testimonials from previous customers? Have they been talked about by any other industry organizations? You’ll want to buy from a company that you can trust, so make sure that they’re trustworthy before you hit the “order” button.
These are just a few things to keep in mind as you prepare to take your business to the next level. For more information about custom packaging services, including how to start an order, contact Express Packaging.
