The Best Custom Packaging For Your eCommerce Small Business

June 15, 2021

The business of ecommerce is becoming more and more competitive, and it’s only gotten tougher over the last 5 years. For small businesses, this means more potential customers as well as harsher competition. A shift to online shopping, especially on mobile devices, has changed the way we shop and sell our products. If you are looking for a way to safely and efficiently pack your small business orders, then creating custom made boxes may be the perfect solution for you! With many benefits, and Australian companies such as Jetbox available to help make your boxes come to life, there are a number of reasons why custom packaging is the best option for your business.

Now is the time to invest in custom made, durable packaging to ensure your items always arrive safely. Help your business stand out today! Read on to find out more about the best custom packaging options for your small business.

Choosing the Best Packaging For Your Business

There are a number of variables when it comes to choosing the right packaging for your business. From the size and shape of your box, to the materials you use and the inserts if necessary. By choosing to create custom made boxes, you can have consistent and reliable packaging that helps to create a sense of trust with customers. There is nothing worse than receiving a broken item, and with the right box and protective packaging you can help to increase repeat customers and build trust.

At Jetbox, we understand that price can often keep businesses away from creating custom boxes as they are nervous about the cost. To help give you a better idea on how much your boxes will cost, and to take away the mystery, we created a custom box calculator for you to use online! Simply select the options as they apply, and you will receive a rough quote before proceeding. We want to give you all the power you need to make the right decision for your business, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us online or via phone.

Designed With Your Products in Mind

The beauty of custom boxes is they can come in any size or shape. This can feel overwhelming, but custom boxes give you, the business owner, total power over how you want to package and ship your items.

Here are some questions to ask yourself when designing your boxes:

What is your product? How does the shape affect shipping? It is important to package your items nice and snug to avoid damage.

How fragile is your product? Does it require extra cushioning such as bubble wrap, bio-fill or crinkled paper? Custom fit inserts or partitions can also help to separate items if they are fragile and being shipped together.

For example, if you need custom boxes for your candle business, you’ll need to consider things such as weight, size and the fragility of the candle if it is made using glass.

What Do You Get with Custom Made Packaging?

At Jetbox, we offer custom made boxes for all businesses with no MOQ. Custom made packaging gives you the power to make as many, or as little, of a certain box size, helping to reduce waste and cater for businesses with a wide range of products. We also offer friendly and professional customer service, adding that local touch.

Working with a company like Jetbox gives you more than just the boxes, it opens the door for customised products, affordable packaging supplies and local knowledge and support throughout the process. Our staff are here to support you and your business!

Need Help with Your Custom Box Order?

Once you’ve decided to take the leap into custom boxes, there are a few things you need to do. Firstly you need to decide on the size, the style, type of cardboard and quantity. As mentioned above, Jetbox has no minimum order quantity (MOQ) and allows you to place orders from one box into the hundreds and beyond.

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
