No matter your business goals, making the switch to custom packaging is a game changer. It might be assumed that investing in custom packaging solutions is expensive, and must be out of your budget. However, when executed correctly custom packaging is a cost effective way to help build brand awareness, protect your products and save time.
In short, to answer the question ‘are custom packaging solutions always cost effective’: yes, if you have the knowledge and skills to create intentional, well planned custom boxes.
Did you know that custom made boxes can actually save you money? With businesses needing to be more aware of cost now than ever before, and having to account for things such as freight, budgets are constantly shuffling and reshuffling to make ends meet. However we believe that making the change to custom boxes will reap many benefits and can be cost effective for your business in the long run.
Custom Packaging is More than a just a Pretty Box (although, it is that too)
When it comes to comparing custom made boxes made in Melbourne, to those boxes that are mass produced across the world in a factory of unknown origin, there is one obvious choice. By choosing custom made boxes from an Australian manufacturer, not only can you be confident in the quality, you can easily communicate on measurements, durability, style and more.
Custom made boxes can be manufactured in a number of different cardboard thicknesses, or grades, and printed with designs and logos. The best thing about custom boxes is the more you buy, the cheaper they are. Higher quantities of custom made boxes allows you to save money on each individual box, and easily calculate your budget for the upcoming months, or even year.
At Jetbox, we offer custom made RSC Printed Boxes to help add that extra something special. Use this service to print a design of your choice right onto your boxes, whether that be a branding slogan, image or logo. Custom boxes with a design printed onto them are free advertising: wherever your box goes, so too goes your brand.
Custom made boxes can be flat packed, making them easy to store and ship. When it comes time to assemble your custom made corrugated box, it is a simple and easy process.
How Custom Packaging Saves you Money on Void Fill
When it comes to cost efficiency and saving money, business owners often overlook the other products involved in shipping products. The box itself is the most important part, but what about the void fill? If you are buying boxes that are weak and flimsy, ill fitting or overall just bad quality you will spend much more on void fill than your custom box counterpart. Instead of having to use half a roll of bubble wrap to secure your fragile products, invest in a custom made box with superior protection and a cardboard grade chosen specifically with your product in mind. While you will still use void fill when packing your item, you will use significantly less – saving you money in the long term, as well as reducing waste.
By using less void fill and other protective products, you also save time. Efficiency is key to running a successful business, and with custom made corrugated cardboard shipping boxes your packing process has never been smoother.
Custom Make your Boxes for Cheaper Shipping
Overwhelmed with the cost of shipping? Design your boxes to be smaller, lighter and overall cheaper to ship and reap the benefits! We understand that there are some larger and heavier products where the box will play little to no role in the courier’s cost calculations, but if your products are lightweight and sometimes shipped in smaller quantities then you could be saving big on shipping fees across the year.
