Promotional Boxes That Speak Volumes
Let the Box Tell Your Brand’s Story
Print promotional boxes that inform recipients everything they need to know about you and your brand. Creating your own customized kit is one of the most versatile ways to reach an audience with the exact message you want your brand to convey. These boxes are usually given out to the press, influencers, guests at event tradeshows, and when onboarding new employees. The box, together with the selection of products inside, should work hand-in-hand to weave and share a cohesive brand story.
What Are Promotional Boxes?
Promotional boxes are custom kits that inform recipients of everything they need to know about you and your brand. Creating your own customized kit is one of the most versatile ways to reach an audience with the exact message you want your brand to convey. These boxes are usually given out to the press, influencers, guests at event tradeshows, and when onboarding new employees. The box should go well together with the curated products packed inside to weave and share a cohesive brand story.
What should you put inside a promotional box? Make it something memorable, something that will make the recipient think of your business. It could be something practical like branded stationery, a cap, pens, and a mug. It could also contain a sampler of all the products you offer so that the recipient will have a concrete idea of what your brand brings to the table.
Designing Promotional Boxes for Success
Use custom promotional boxes to strengthen your brand, raise awareness, and increase engagement. These boxes are utilized to market to a specific audience, so a high level of customization is required. After all, there’s a different level of communication needed for media, for clients, and for incoming employees. Here are a couple of tips to keep in mind as you create your custom promotional boxes:
Size correctly – The unboxing experience became a buzzword for a reason. It’s important to make sure that recipients will like what they see once they open your package. One way to make certain of this is to have a correctly sized promotional box. With a box too big, the items inside will be in disarray or worse, damaged. Measure everything you intend to put inside your box and choose one from our standard sizes that approximates the best.
If you have something specific outside our standard size options, you can customize a box within the following size ranges:
- Length: 3" to 25"
- Width: 2" to 25"
- Depth: 1" to 15"
Go green – Packola uses sustainably-sourced and recyclable corrugated cardboard. Opting for eco-friendly materials is one of the most important decisions that companies are faced with. Transparency about using sustainable materials and leaving a positive or carbon neutral footprint is an admiral goal that speaks volumes about your brand’s social responsibility.
Engage the eyes – Packola offers full-color printing for custom promotional boxes. You can print in full color inside, outside, and even the side panels. Use this to your advantage and design your custom boxes in such a way that its artwork and colors help you tell your brand’s story. Make the design colorful to immediately capture your viewer’s attention. Don’t forget to use colors and fonts that are on-brand. Conversely, avoid overdoing it, as this may clutter your design and make your promotional box gaudy.
Design differently – Promotional boxes are usually given away as gifts and tokens. They need to be different from your usual product packaging. You can create your custom box’s artwork using our online 3D design tool. It lets you view your design real-time in 3D. Every change you make, every design element you add, you can see immediately. You can turn the 3D model and view every imaginable angle to ensure that the design is up to par. If you have a graphic artist who will design the box for you, we can send you a dieline template after you’ve completed the order process. This template has the exact specifications needed for your custom order. Use your preferred image editing program to create the artwork and simply upload it on our website once you're done.
