Shipping boxes are important for any business that regularly transports products. Are you on the lookout for ways to save money and market your products more efficiently and effectively? Here’s 4 reasons why you should be using a custom shipping box.
- Save money on your boxes
By purchasing custom shipping boxes, you have the ability to choose the exact and best size box for your product. A perfectly sized box will save you money because you are not paying for one that is too big (purchasing extra material), but will also help you save on the inner packing like bubble wrap or packing peanuts needed. A properly sized box will not need as much inner packing to keep the product safe. When you chose a custom shipping box you will get the best box for your product and save money in the process.
- Perfectly sized boxes, every time
single box we send out has been custom cut to the specific dimensions you have ordered. Instead of searching our inventory for a box size that might work for you, you can lay your products out, measure them, and then tell us exactly what size you need for your shipments.
The fact that our custom shipping boxes are perfectly sized for your needs is awesome for a few reasons. First and foremost, customers love it. Wasteful, excessive packaging is one of the biggest turnoffs for an online shopper, and many consumers have been known to take to social media when an offensive package lands on their doorstep. On the other hand, neat, perfectly sized packaging with contents snug within their shipping box is much appreciated by customers.
- Inform your customer
Custom shipping boxes are not only a great way to build brand awareness and market your product and company, but that box is also a great tool to inform your customer about how to contact you, or reorder, or where to go to visit your webpage. Beyond that initial contact with the customer think about how often boxes are reused? Does a shipping box always get recycled once it has reached its destination or is it safe to say that many times it is used again and again? Of course it is, and this is all the more reason why including a website or contact info on your custom shipping boxes can help you connect with new customers as well as your current ones.
- Eco-friendly packaging builds loyal customers and referrals
For discerning, conscious consumers, eco-minded packaging that is made with recycled content and can be easily recycled and composted makes them 52% more likely to order from you again. In fact, eco-friendly packaging (especially custom branded eco-friendly packaging) not only builds loyalty, it also encourages referrals. 40% of consumers would share images of thoughtful packaging on their social media feeds.
