When’s the right time to explore custom made and branded packaging?
Great question! Most businesses need to start off small, but there comes a point when sales increase and a need for a different kind of packaging emerges.
Investing in good quality, custom made and branded packaging is essential to continue to build customer confidence, reduce damages/returns, streamline packing operations and reduce excess packaging.
You will need to consider the following:
- Storage space
- Packaging volume
- Personal requirements like style, material and level of protection
We generally have a minimum order quantity of 500 units for any packaging that is to be made to a particular size or to be printed. We would always recommend purchasing the largest quantity viable to attain the best unit cost and value for money.
For companies buying boxes in excess of 500 units per month, we offer a fantastic stock and call off facility. You don’t need to use your own valuable storage space. You can place orders for your packaging to be delivered the next day and we only invoice after the goods are delivered, helping to spread the costs for you. All manufactured stock must be delivered within a 3 month time-frame, so it’s important to be realistic about your packaging requirements before asking us about this option.
