The minimum size of an order is 500 pc per branding set. We can’t produce smaller quantity, however we can coordinate with your supplier so he stores the brandings sets correctly for you.
How long does it take to complete an order?
Completing an order follows a design and production timeline:
How can i choose the best size for my packaging?
The best sizes of a box depend on the real dimensions of the object to be contained in it. If you want to be sure to have perfect packaging sizes you can just measure the product you need to fill in. Take note of its three dimensions (L,P,H) and add 1 or 2 mm for each side to obtain a comfortable package.
For example: if you have an object that measures 100 x 100 x 100 mm you should order a packaging of 102 x 102 x 102 mm.
Where are you products made?
Our printing workshops are all based in China – Close to your manufacturers. Our vetted network of printing workshops allow us to streamline the best qualities and quality and an ease of communication with your products suppliers.

Do you use sustainable, recycled materials?
Bet we do! We care passionately about sustainable materials and eco friendly options on our material sourcing. The majority of our cardboard is recycled, to the highest degree allowed by the paperboard industry’s standards. Mailer Boxes, contain a majority of recycled material, while others – such as folding products boxes constructed from SBS paperboard – contain less due to their manufacturing.
All of our products are recyclable.

Can I order a box type other than mailers and folding cartons?
Yes! We are open to suggestions if your order reaches 1000 units. If you have a different box style or specific ideas, we are always happy to take a look and let you know if we can help.
Please get in touch and let’s discuss your next big thing.
Can i do specific finish requests or material requests?
Yes, all requests are welcome! We will consider them with our printing workshops and discuss with your possibility on making gorgeous branding sets to be remembered.
Can I ship a mailer box without using any other external packaging?
This is the all point of it! Once formed, the box is very sturdy and absolutely safe to ship without any additional protection.
In fact, several customers use mailer boxes for their ‘subscription boxes’. These custom looking boxes help our customer’s customers get excited about the inside of the box just by the awesome looking outside of the box. The mailers are often used to have a custom looking box filled with lots of different sized items, that when opened, display very beautifully.
Can I ship a folding product box without using any other external packaging?
Nope, the paperboard is too thin to withstand shipping alone.
While they are excellent choices for display and internal packaging of smaller items, they do not have the rigidity that is necessary to protect your items during shipping. We recommend placing them into a sturdy corrugated external box to protect your valuable contents during shipping.
Keep in mind, if you are an Amazon FBA customer, Amazon will pack for you into a mailer box – so no worries about shipping.
Are the dimensions i pick precisely what i will receive?
We use digital printing with both digital and mechanical cutting and production techniques. While we make every effort to ensure that your dimensions and printing line up precisely as you see them in proofing, there can be up to 0.125″ – 0.32cm (plus or minus) variance during manufacturing of any corrugated product. We recommend that you allow for this possibility in both sizing choices and in laying out your artwork.
For ease of packing and unpacking the contents of your boxes, we also recommend that you allow for about 0.25″- 0.60cm on each dimension.
How does it work?
If you are a rockstar designer and you want to design yourself, we will send you the die cut after selecting the branding you need.
If you would like us to take care of it, it is already part of your pricing! Our awesome design brief allows to understand your business needs and offers printing possibilities tailored to your needs. We will gather the necessary information from your side and pass it over to our designer – who knows the ins and out and how to make your customers say “Wow, that i call awesome branding.”
Are the dimensions listed on the website outside or inside dimensions? The dimensions i pick, would it be exactly what i receive?
All of our dimensions are inside dimensions, this makes it easier to know if your products will fit inside your box.
Can you print inside the box?
We sure do! For mailer boxes only – we can’t print inside folding product boxes as of now.
A customer does not expect the unexpected – Printing inside a mailer box is the last step on giving your brand a memorable unboxing experience.
Make the buzz.
How should i set up barcodes/UPC EAN for print?
If you let us take care of the design – Just send us your barcodes and we will make sure it follows the right standards.
If you decide to design yourself, here are the industry standards to respect:
-UPC-A type barcodes need to be at least 150% size (approx 2.2”- 5.6cm wide) in order to scan properly.
-We recommend the height to be at least 0.5”-1.3cm tall.
-Barcodes should be built as 100% Black only, in order to provide the best scannability.
-Building the file with a CMYK build or a screen of black can result in a barcode that will not scan.
-Barcodes should be provided as vector files, or high resolution (300ppi at the intended print size) raster files in order to provide the best possible print quality.
Barcodes are not recommended for digital printing on corrugated materials. We strongly recommend sourcing printed barcode stickers to go with our boxes for this purpose.
It is good to print on folding carton boxes.
Can you design my artwork for me?
Hell yeah. For only 89 USD, it would be a pity to not benefit from our talented designers. However, you are limited in creativity as we tailor make standards for your industry needs. So based on what business you are in, you will be offered templates to choose from – We will change those templates based on the information you provide us during the design brief.
I am a rockstar designer, can i send you an artwork with die-line?
Sure can! We will send you the die cut of the branding set selected so you can impose your artwork on it using your favorite vector graphic design software.
Please note that we do not take responsibility on your designs.
What is the recommended Trim?
If you’re designing the artwork yourself using a vector graphic software please put a 1/4”-0.63cm bleed around your artwork. If you’re not sure what bleed and trim is, we recommend to let us do the work 🙂
Nope, Our design templates are ours – we will send the original files to our printing partners and you will receive the finish goods. You will be able to see a flat pdf version of it.
The minimum size of an order is 500 pc per branding set. We can’t produce smaller quantity, however we can coordinate with your supplier so he stores the branding sets correctly for you.
What does your price includes?
Our prices per unit include the following:
Is the price affected by the number of colours used in the design?
Depending on what type of packaging you choose, you will be able to go for the full color option. In that case the price is not affected, we can create colorful masterpieces which will stand out on your listings and your customers hands.
As a digital CMYK printer, a portion of our pricing is based on the total amount of ink coverage on the box, rather than the number of colors you use in your design.
