Packaging is a crucial part of any company's success. Use custom-printed boxes to tell your brand's story and make a strong first impression on your customers. Among the many options available in the market are corrugated boxes, box inserts, mailers, and more. Great for new enterprises, established ones, and upscale packaging needs.
Do you want your stationery store to stand out from the competition? Interwell's design staff can assist in making that happen. Not only can we print and make your stationery products to perfection, but we can also guide you on the best packaging needs for your products, like adding inserts, dividers, and partitions to increase their effectiveness and add credibility to your stationery packaging strategy.
These are the standard brown corrugated parcels that everyone uses. Kraft cardboard is cheap and provides your project with a natural feel. These boxes are among the most eco-friendly options for packing because they are frequently made from recycled materials. Ideal for white and black print. Moreover, it improves the contrast of other printing methods like foil stamping.
This option has a more streamlined appearance and will allow for more vibrant graphics. Likewise, white corrugated boxes give off an air of sophistication.
This elevates your packaging to the next level of sophistication. The paper coating can be done inside and out, with various colors available. The box inside will be finished in plain white if you choose not to coat it.
CCNB is a type of duplex paperboard, meaning that one side is coated with white kaolin clay for crisp printing, while the other is a natural brown or grey kraft substance. It is widely used in the manufacturing of packaging materials like cardboard boxes.
PE is one of the most widely used plastics. It can be bought in large quantities at a fair price and used in many ways. PE refers to a wide range of plastic grades which share the same low density and thermo plasticity. Structural differences allow them to be used in a variety of contexts. Polyethylene foam has no negative effects on the environment, the skin, or the body.
The luxurious foam box inserts in high-end retail packaging are made from ethylene-vinyl acetate. The best packaging option for fragile or expensive items is EVA foam because of its durability and ability to dampen the shock.
Cardboard is reinforced using corrugation, sometimes known as a flute. A corrugated board is created when these are bonded together in wavy lines on a paperboard sheet.
The best option for thin lines or metallic or fluorescent colors.
Perfect for full-color photos or needing a lot of different colors.
If you've ever placed an online order, you're probably familiar with the mailer box. In the e-commerce industry, mailer boxes have dual purposes: gift boxes and promotional mailing packaging. Mailer boxes will be an effective packaging for any stationery subscription box.

Folding carton boxes, sometimes called "custom product boxes," are paperboard boxes typically used for single packaging items (e.g., pens, pencils, highlighters, and paper clips). In most cases, one or both ends of the box will have a tuck flap. Since folding cartons can be printed on both sides, they provide the ideal package for showcasing your brand's message.
Tuck ends are located on both the top and bottom of the box. It is preferable if products may be placed in the box from either end.
Features a concealed top flap that opens from the bottom, making them convenient for buyers.
Features a foldable and locking bottom and a tuckable top. Perfect for items that weigh a little more.
Rigid boxes, commonly called "Set-Up Boxes," are widely used for packaging and are frequently linked with high-end items. Rigid boxes are normally not directly printed and are four times thicker than a standard folding carton. Instead, they are wrapped in paper, which can be as simple or elaborate as the buyer prefers.
Rigid containers include two primary components: the lid and the base (top and bottom). It can be found in various sizes and shapes, including square, rectangular, round, triangular, V-shaped, etc. However, rigid box designs are typically classified and identified by the lid used in the packaging industry.
Often referred to as "book form boxes" or "rigid setup boxes," these boxes may be opened and closed similarly to a book.
Rigid packages with a lid and a tray are commonly referred to as "rigid telescope packs." They have a cover that may be vertically removed from the tray or box. These are the most common kinds of packaging. The dimensions are such that the lid opens slowly. Considering their base and lid, each has four sides. It serves to safeguard whatever is inside.
The FTD, or "two-piece tray," consists of a top and bottom section. A "full-depth top," as commonly called, is a top that slides entirely over a base to add depth to the latter's sides and ends. The top is put together using corner adhesive or staples.
A Full Telescope Case with slots on either the top or bottom.
Protecting your goods during shipment requires custom box inserts, often called packaging inserts or packaging inlays. Depending on the product, these may be paper, cardboard, or foam.
Custom inserts have a dual purpose: to protect the box's contents and enhance the unwrapping experience by stylishly showcasing the items. Packaging inserts are a convenient technique to arrange the contents of a box so that everything is displayed in the ideal fashion.
It is typically used for items not requiring additional height in the packaging and can sit flat on the bottom of the box. These inserts work great for similar-sized goods.
Typically used for identical or comparably sized products that require a slight height increase for secure placement.
Inserts with a rim are the go-to when packing irregularly shaped or sized products. This keeps the products from falling out.
You may easily turn your stationery business into a well-known brand. Using cardboard inserts makes it much easier to pack many items into a single box. Each item can have its designated spot, so there's no danger of getting mixed up.
Dividers of this type typically consist of a single sheet of paper or corrugated material that is folded in such a way as to create sub-sections. These dividers work great for single-row compartments or compartments of varying sizes.
The paper or cardboard used to make these dividers is cut into individual pieces and then glued or stapled together to form the various compartments. When you need to divide a space in your packaging into equal-sized sections, a partition made of multiple pieces is your best bet.
In search of increased channels through which to promote your goods and services? Putting up display cases in high-traffic areas like grocery stores, stationery shops, and convenience stores might be a good idea. If you haven't tried this method yet to increase sales, you should.
Consumers are more likely to purchase impulsively if the packaging they see in stores is visually appealing. This is especially true of display boxes that are brightly colored and appealing. To make a sale at the grocery store, you need to have an eye-catching display box with correct information, appealing discounts and promotions, and minimal space usage.
However, there are various display cases from which to choose, including countertop boxes, floor cases, power wings, and endcaps. To sell more of your product, you must figure out what display boxes will work best.
Placed prominently next to the register. This is a form of advertising that can encourage customers to make a quick purchase while they're standing in line to pay.
Erasers, stickers, and post-it notes are just some small items that would look great in this display box. A slightly widened version made from a more robust material would also work well as a notebook's packaging.
Often referred to as "drawer packaging," custom tray and sleeve boxes facilitate an easy, enjoyable unboxing process with a simple sliding motion. This 2-piece, collapsible box has a tray that glides out from the sleeve, easily revealing your contents.
Ideal for showcasing your brand in all its glory, whether you're selling lightweight items or luxury goods. Rigid drawer boxes are a good option if you need to ship fragile items but don't want to risk damaging them by folding the box. Incorporate original art and design for a one-of-a-kind look.
The inner tray's standard (thin) walls give you more room to store lightweight items or various items, such as accessories.
The inner tray has thick walls to serve as an insert by itself. This kind of box is ideal for a little bit heavier products that need to be safe during transport.
Blister card packaging is ideal for showcasing products more prominently while safely enclosing them in pre-formed, hard chambers for transport and storage. Both the pocket and the backing are required for this sort of packing.
The shape of the see-through pouch can be identical to the product's form, as is the case with many toys that are packaged in identical plastic, or it can be more abstract, taking the form of a circle, square, or rectangle. The substrate that supports the product from behind is called the backing. Paperboard is a common option for packaging, but there are other materials to consider.
Branding your product cleanly and unobtrusively is easy with packaging sleeves. The packaging sleeve is a rectangular piece of paper that slides down the middle of your product.
The high-quality, thick paper used to make this eco-friendly packaging means it will outlast any plastic it might come into contact with. Printing on the packaging sleeve can help keep quality high while decreasing expenses and waste. The printed sleeve around your product's packaging is great because it doesn't overpower your product.
Stickers produced specifically for your products and packaging are an excellent way to boost your brand's identity. Seal your packages with personalized kiss-cutout stickers or add informational labels produced specifically for you. Sticker rolls and sheets can be customized to meet your needs and the brand's aesthetic. Check out some examples of our bespoke sticker designs for packaging to spark some ideas.
