From the moment that you choose a custom packaging company, they will begin to make suggestions and instructions about what products you can and cannot use. For this reason, it is best to know what your company is allowed to use before you begin.
Every company’s guidelines will vary based on their particular products. The most common company guidelines include the following: Non-compliant packaging is prohibited. Therefore, any food or drink items should not be placed in any form of packaging that contains items that are not allowed.
Liquid containers may only be placed in a glass bottle or other non-collapsible container. Liquids must be stored in plastic containers that have been specifically designed for liquid storage. Any other containers that cannot be used as containers for liquid items such as bottled water should not be used for any other product. There are several products that are considered non-compliant including aerosols, air fresheners, bubble bath, frozen food, gelatin, toilet paper, whipped topping, and sugar cubes.
The last thing you need to consider when choosing a custom packaging company is whether or not they require upfront charges for any samples you send them. The cost for the samples will vary by custom packaging company. Some companies will sell you the samples directly to you at a discount price. The cost of the samples will depend on the specific company that you are working with.
If you do not want to purchase sample packages then you can request a sample pack with your order. Some top branded boxes companies like Refine Packaging offer samples at free or low prices. Be sure to ask if they require this before you place your order. After all, if they do not, you will not be able to purchase any products from them.
Regardless of how much or how little you spend, you should be allowed to choose your package and add some personal touches. Any products that are customized, but that will be sent out to many customers, should offer the customer something extra as well.
Finally, the customization process is a long one, and it can get very expensive. If you do not want to pay this high of a price, then you should choose a company that has a low end pricing and offers more services to help you custom packaging needs.
To ensure that you get a positive experience working with a custom packaging company, you should ask questions about the services offered, the prices, and how the packages will be delivered. This is the only way to make sure that you will be satisfied with your company.
