Where to find custom box and packaging suppliers for your unique product

Posted by IndustryNet on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

where to find custom packaging suppliersAn attractive box can entice a consumer to grab it enthusiastically from a store shelf. Even the finest products may be left behind if their look is too pedestrian. One-third of consumers make a decision based on packaging.

A customer entranced by the appearance of their purchase can spark even more sales by posting pictures of it on social media. Materials, shapes, colors, and typography can be factors in customer appeal.

Manufacturers may apply methods such as tinting, die cutting, and digital printing, to create a siren call to potential buyers. Boxes may also occupy or transform into displays that attract the attention of shoppers.

Preventing damage during shipping can also be a vital component in the design of a box. Some companies add specially fabricated dividers and pads to safeguard fragile merchandise further. Prompt delivery times are often essential to successfully bringing a product to market.

Some box suppliers maintain distribution systems to supply their business customers. Containers for export must be fabricated of specific materials to avoid international regulatory restrictions.

The following are examples of companies that provide custom box and packaging services engineered to address their customers' unique needs.

Preparing for Exportcontainer-ship-429951_960_720

International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) is a regulation that mandates the treatment of wood materials used for overseas transportation. It was put in place to prevent the spread of disease by insects. ISPM 15 requires that wood products be heat-treated or fumigated, slowing down the shipping process.

One way that exporters can avoid this bottleneck is by using ISPM exempt containers such as those made by Duro-Flex LLC. in High Hill, Mo. Duro-Flex has provided corrugated containers to the St. Louis area for more than 50 years, serving the needs of businesses who market their goods locally and to foreign buyers.
