Product Packaging Resources

Product packaging is like the icing on the cake.  You have created a beautiful product, spent time setting up great photos for your listing and are now ready to ship it to your customer.  Don’t forget to spend time and thought on your product packaging.  This will be your last impression, which can be just as important as your first impression.

In this post, we will focus on on-line resources for your packaging.

Printing Services – Business Cards, Thank You Cards, Postcards

With every package, you should include at a minimum a business card with your logo and a good way to contact you.  You should also include your social media and maybe a suggested hashtag for how to share.  I also like to include a postcard or thank you card with a hand written note.  Such a great personal touch and reminder that you are a person…not a robot.

Here are some of my favorite online resources for printers:

  • Moo.com – a very unique printing experience.  They use a process called Printfinity allowing you to print a different image on every card or postcard.  Prices start around $20 for 50 business cards.  They are very thick and luxurious with a high quality feel.
  • Overnightprints.com – This has been my printer for years.  You can sign up to be for a VIP Loyalty Service and receive great discounts.  If you are looking for an extra thick business card, check out their fat business cards.  You will pay around $7 for 50 double-sided standard business cards.  This is the kind I order and have been very impressed.  Check out their circle business cards if you are looking for something very unique – they are thick and luxurious.  They also offer services like postcards,booklets, folded cards and business cards.  You can order a free sample pack to feel the difference between paper.
  • Jak Prints – This printer was recommended by my branding designer.  I think this service is great if you are working with a designer that can set up all your files, but may be a little more complicated to set up yourself.  You will order each item separately, which means you pay separate shipping for each item.   They offer business cards, post cards, folded cards and stickers.  Order a free sample book to see all of their options.
  • Uprinting.com – This printer offers a wide variety of services.  From custom boxes (small sizes), stickers and hang tags with pre-punched holes.  They also offer business cards, postcards and many other marketing products.  This could be your one stop shop.  From my research, their stickers are some of the most economical and high quality.  You can choose from a variety of finishes.  They have a great turn around time and have the ability to make a custom size for most of their products via their custom printing service.

Shipping Bags

Depending on what you will be shipping, different kinds of bags will be needed.  Here are a few different options and resources.  For smaller orders, I usually order from Amazon.  They have the best pricing and shipping options.

  • Poly bags are the best for ensuring your items stays dry.  They are tear resistant and plastic based.  They come in a variety of sizes and even colors.  I use these white ones and sometimes a fun blue one.  Don’t forget a branded sticker on the outside.
  • Padded paper bags like this one are great for items you want to keep slightly protected.

For larger orders,  you should check out Uline.com.  They have great customer service and are readily available to answer your questions.  Their shipping costs are higher, but if you are ordering larger quantities you will save on the buying in bulk versus Amazon.

Shipping Boxes

  • USPS Priority mail boxes are free!  Just remember that you need to be using their priority service to use these.  They have flat rate shipping boxes, but also offer several options for paying based on weight.  Do your research and find out which one is best for your business.  In my case, paying based on weight was the better option
  • If you want a more branded look, try a simple kraft brown box with a sticker.  U-Line has a great selection of sizes and options.

    companies to order bulk, pre-finished, customized, durable and attractive boxes for storage, distribution or final retail packaging. We think that companies whether small or big, must have proper and attractive packaging since it not just helps preserve goods safe but also promotes the company. But sometimes, you may feel that there’s no need to buy a container for your goods other than those made of corrugated steel, cardboard and plastic. Why not opt for glass candle boxes, custom clear boxes or wooden mini storage bins? Here are some of the main reasons why customizing containers is the answer to every small and big business concern.

    If you are looking for a more elegant way of showcasing your products, you may want to use custom printed packaging. Whether you are selling products from certain brands, or you are providing your own products, it is imperative that you do whatever you can to get noticed. One way that you can do this is to purchase custom printed packaging for your products. You can purchase these packaging supplies for a variety of reasons, but one of the most important reasons comes down to the fact that the bigger your picture, the better. As such, you want your custom printed boxes to be large enough to fit all of the items in your display without any extra space being taken up by items that do not belong there

    The box has usually been manufactured in standard cube or oblong
    shape but some may be customized according to customers' specifications. They
    are commonly found in shopping malls, bookstores, and other retail outlets,
    particularly those which deal with skin care products.

    Custom boxes with graphic logos help you stand out in the crowd with your own unique identity. While many brands have managed to grab eyeballs, few of them have managed to create an identity on their own

    If you want to enhance the beauty of these custom printed pillowcases, you can give them a colorful touch through free color printing. This process allows you to print colorful pictures on the boxes using your computer. It is an inexpensive way of producing colorfully printed products. Apart from punch proofing, you can print messages on these boxes using the free color tools and software available online. You can also print company logos on these pillowcases using your desktop printer. This will give a unique look to your product and further enhance its visibility in the market.

    One of the most important things that a Harf Eraz talk show host must do to remain in the audience’s good books is to make sure that his guest is a great personality and one with good material. In other words, Araz’s guests have to be able to deliver their material. For this reason, there are three separate rooms where guests are housed during the filming of the talk show. Each room is used to host a different performer who will be going on stage during the show.
