When starting or updating your business, there are many different areas of improvement you need to consider. If you are a business that is looking to post physical items, you need to organise boxes, packaging products, tape, and choose a carrier to ship your items domestically or internationally. But what exactly are the differences between custom boxes or stock boxes, and why are they important? If you are a small business, it is most likely you don’t want to be ordering hundreds of boxes at a time, so making the right choice is reliant on finding boxes that are perfect for your business while also being available with a low minimum order quantity (MOQ). At Jetbox, we offer our custom boxes to businesses across Victoria with a small MOQ, making it easy to create the perfect box without breaking the budget. Read more about the differences between custom made and stock boxes below!
The Difference Between Custom Made and Stock Boxes
There are a few main differences between stock, or off the shelf, boxes and custom made boxes. Firstly, stock boxes are not customised to a specific size or style, and may not fit within a shipping carrier’s low price specifications. In short, the stock boxes you buy might be unnecessarily large, creating higher fees for your business. You might also find yourself using extra packaging materials to keep your items safe, or the stock boxes might be too small for your larger orders. Stock boxes may or may not come with existing images or print on them, and this can clash with your business identity or theme.
Custom made boxes can be made specifically to your business needs. Many companies create their boxes with no branding, so you can add your own stamps or stickers. Create boxes that snuggly fit your items, and also fit the size specifications of your shipping carrier. At Jetbox, we offer custom boxes in any size or style, and work with you to find the perfect box for your needs. Our low MOQ makes it easy to order a number of different styles, saving you from having to order a large number of boxes that may not even be right for your needs! We also specialise in sample run and prototyping – feel free to visit our website for more information.
We have further explained some of the main benefits of custom made boxed below:
- Custom Boxes are Made to Perfectly Fit Your Items
As a business owner, there is nothing worse than an ill fitting box. Custom made boxes are designed with your products in mind, ensuring there is no unnecessary excess space needing to be filled with bubble wrap or other packaging materials. Take the stress out of packing with custom boxes!
- Saving Money with Custom Made Boxes
Custom made boxes are more cost effective than you might think; with low MOQs and no need to order hundreds of boxes at a time, you can lower your business costs and invest in furthering your business. You also save on delivery costs into the future!
