We at i7 Packaging often note that most potential customers change their mind of ordering Custom Boxes and go ahead with simple pre stored boxes because of a number of myths and misconceptions they carry in their mind. Before discussing them with you let me give you a brief description about the Custom Boxes first for those of you who are completely new to the field.
Custom Boxes at i7 Packaging
As the name suggests, these type of Boxes are built solely to fit your needs. I7 Packaging offers Custom Boxes to be made with any size, color, shape and therefore completely comes to terms with the definition of Custom Boxes. We offer any type of logo to be imprinted on the boxes as well and the extra options of embossing, debossing or die-cut window to the box helps in giving a unique look to your packaging which results in increased value of the product which it has been made for. A wide range of different card types alongside their adjustable thickness give a range of different choices for our buyer to choose from.
Now heading on to what all of us have gathered here for “The Different Types of misconceptions”
1. Custom Boxes have a huge difference in price in comparison with the pre stored boxes:
This is not true in any aspect as the custom boxes only have a minimal difference in price if compared with the pre stored ones. The difference in price only comes due to the fact that the Custom Boxes are made to suit the individual’s needs which obviously increases the price but at i7 Packaging we limit this factor by as much as we can by having Custom Boxes made at the lowest rates. The little increase in price also occurs because the Custom Boxes use much better stocks in comparison with the pre stored ones. So, who wouldn’t want to spend a few more bucks to get a box that would truly fulfill the needs for which it was bought?
2. Custom Boxes are not for startups:
Most of the time, it is the case that people believe that the minimal they can get would be large quantities which they wouldn’t be needing. However, this is not the case at i7 Packaging as we have a low MOQ of 100 which means that even startups can benefit from the positive effects of Custom Boxes. Another reason why it is believed that Custom Boxes are not for startups is the fact that the price per unit decreases as the quantity increases. This fact results in most of the startups believing that it wouldn’t be beneficial for them to go ahead with Custom Made Boxes. But at i7 Packaging even small quantity customers are treated with equal regard and we try to our utmost level to have the prices in their range.
3. Custom Boxes take too much time to be delivered:
At i7 Packaging we try to help our customers in every regard and therefore we have a quick time of 6-8 days for the boxes to be delivered at your doorstep and even quicker by a day or two in rush orders.
4. The design file is hard to make:
It is true that making the design file can be a tricky thing for beginners or professionals without designing experience. In this case hiring a professional for this need can be very costly which can demoralize the person who needs to start from the scratch. I7 Packaging on the other hand gives full design support to its customers without any fee as we want to help and promote the users of Custom Boxes.
5. Shipping Charges of Custom Boxes are high:
This verdict is true to an extent as large size boxes can be really expensive to ship, in some cases even more than the production cost. But at i7 Packaging you needn’t worry as we offer Free Shipping to any part of the USA to help limit this issue.
6. Using them may be a bit risky as they may not turn out according to the individuals needs.
It can be devastating to spend so much time on a thing that may not be of any benefit to you or your business. I7 Packaging tries to limit any such issues. We provide our customers with a 3-D mockup which predicts how the box would look. On larger quantities than 5000 or on such occasions where it becomes tricky we also provide physical samples to make sure the customers get what he has paid for!
