An Easy Guide to Getting Customized Boxes for Your Startup Business


Do you remember when packages came in plain brown shipping boxes? On days you expect multiple deliveries, it can be challenging to distinguish which parcel contains which item since they all look identical. Gone are those days as more businesses make the shift to custom boxes and other forms of personalized packaging.


Custom Boxes Leave a Lasting Impression

A box’s primary function is to keep its contents safe during storage or transportation. According to Dotcom Distribution’s latest study, 82% of more than a thousand interviewees across the US prefer to receive their online orders in boxes.

However, once you add mindful design to the equation, your custom box takes on a bigger role that can help boost your business to greater heights. Just recently, Google Shopping revealed that unboxing videos on Youtube were viewed more than 20 billion times in the US in 2021. With thousands of videos being uploaded daily in every product category, custom packaging can pique the audience’s curiosity and eventually convert them into paying customers.



A Custom Box for Every Business Need

Eye-catching product packaging is commonplace in display shelves and supermarket aisles, but did you know that mailer boxes and shipping boxes can be fully customized at NextDayFlyers as well? We offer the following customization features:

  • Material – Our boxes are made of either corrugated board or cardstock. Corrugated cardboard is reserved for heavier items and parcels that will be sent through mail. You can choose among three options: standard white, premium white, and kraft.

Meanwhile, we use cardstock for our product boxes, since its premium appearance makes it suitable for store displays and for storing small to medium-sized products. Our cardstock product boxes come in three variations: 14pt, 18pt, and 24pt.

  • Size – We offer a wide range of sizes for product, mailer, and shipping boxes. Just enter the interior dimensions you have in mind in the calculator found in every product page.
  • Design – NextDayFlyers has an easy-to-use built-in online design tool so you can easily personalize and visualize the interior and exterior of your custom box before placing an order. In case you already have a design in mind, you can request for a PDF dieline from us so you can apply your design elements on an accurate template.

Lead the Pack With the Best Online Printing Services Provider

Now that you know how custom boxes can help your business stay ahead of the competition, the next thing to do is to find a box printing company you can rely on to bring your designs to life fast. Aside from our wide array of customization options and real-time quotation, NextDayFlyers also offers expedited production that cuts down the production time from 15 to 20 business days to 6 to 8.

No minimum quantity is required for custom box packaging. You can even order a sample so you can assess your custom box before placing a wholesale order.
