How to Choose the Right Type of Boxes for Your Business

Make the most of your marketing efforts by choosing the right custom-printed boxes for your business.

Choosing the right box style
Finding the right style of box comes down to the size of the box required, the type of product that will be placed into it and any other specific requirements that you may need. They are available in a number of different sizes and colours and can be printed with any text, picture or design you want on them. Whether you need a cosmetic box for a rouge compact or require a display box to show off a product line on a retail shelf, you'll find everything you need at ADD boxes.

In most cases you'll want the product to fit inside the box snugly. The item in the box should be held in place securely but the fit shouldn't be too tight or the contents of the package, or the box itself, may be damaged. In order to determine the proper size of box needed you can either take the measurements of the product yourself or contact our company for further suggestions and recommendations.

Don't compromise on your boxes
In today's consumer world your potential customers have a certain expectation when it comes to the presentation of a product. If you are selling cosmetics, for example, you'll need to use boxes that have been designed specifically for holding makeup. The same holds true for CD and DVD boxes and display boxes. When you need specialty boxes you can't settle for anything less without compromising the integrity of your business and risking reduced sales in the process.

Your business needs high quality boxes
Potential customers won't take a second look at your product unless it is packaged attractively. At ADD we offer product boxes that can include die-cut windows in a matte or glossy finish. Our cosmetic boxes can be purchased either with or without plastic windows and feature a tuck-in closing style.

Our food and beverage boxes have been designed to further entice the customer into revealing the contents inside. Food boxes are made to hold multiple or single items with odd shapes while the beverage boxes have been manufactured with durability in mind to prevent even the heaviest bottles from falling out. These beverage boxes can retain their original shape for a long period of time either on the store shelf or in storage after they have been purchased.

Effectively-designed packaging will make a huge impact on your business and your customer base. Consumers are naturally drawn to a product by the aesthetics surrounding it. While the product inside the package should definitely be eye-catching, the box that contains it will be making the biggest initial impression to the consumer.

How to Choose the Right Bags For Your Business

In order to choose the right bags for your business, you need to consider the size of items to go into it, their weight, the fabric colour you want, printing colour, any additional features you want, and the price point.  

When thinking of what size to get, consider that most businesses get two or three sizes. Often a small bag for items such as cards, jewellery, snacks, etc.  A medium bag for multiple items, gifts, books, etc. And a large bag for several items such as clothes, bedding, and other bulky items. In thinking about the carrying capacity of the bag, most businesses do well with the standard weight bag that can hold around 20lbs easily. If your business sells items that are particularly heavy such as books, canned items, etc. you may want to consider a bag made from thicker material, with reinforced straps, and a plastic insert along the bottom. These features will allow the bag to carry a heavier weight while still maintaining its strength. You should also keep in mind that even if the bag is strong your customers may not be, it doesn’t matter if the bag can carry 50lbs, many customers cannot.

Once you have chosen the perfect structure for your bag, now is the time to come into our office to look at colour swatches.  For
nonwoven bags
we have a book of over 50 colours to choose from.  When choosing the colour for the bag keep in mind the colour of the printing you plan on having on your bag. You can choose up to 4 colours to be screen printed on your bag.  We will happily print whatever you like on your bags but keep in mind choosing 1 or 2 colours is significantly more cost effective than 3 or 4 colours. ADD suppliers a wide array of shopping bags that you may select from. 

Now that you have chosen your colours and bag style, are there any extra features you want?  You can have a pocket added to the side, a Velcro or snap attachment to allow the bag to be rolled up, a rope handle, thermal insulation, wine bottle separators, or grommets. Many people dismiss these options very quickly, but be careful, you want your bag to stand out from your competitors.  Many companies use reusable bags now, will yours just be tossed in with the bunch?  How can you make it more useful for your customers? A handy side pocket can be very useful. Or nice rope handles that are more comfortable to hold can turn a shopping bag into a frequently used travel or beach bag.  If the bag is more useful your customers will bring it with them more often thus spreading your advertising more places.

Now that you have chosen the perfect bag, you need to consider the cost. While the individual bag cost is important, don’t forget you will use far less of these bags than you did for paper or plastic bags. After a few months of your customers noticing you use reusable bags they will bring them back over and over again thus reducing the amount you need to purchase. Once you have figured out the per bag cost, if it is more than your budget there are ways we can reduce the cost. Ordering a larger quantity can greatly reduce the cost, and it’s always good to have some extra stock. Reducing the number of ink colours also greatly reduces the cost. If you are still having trouble working these bags into your budget, let us help. Give us your budget and we will figure out which options will fit best. Don’t forget we never charge plate fees so the cost we give you only has taxes added.




How to Increase Awareness of Your Business and Brand

There's no one can deny that attracting new customers and keeping exist customs are ultimate goals that businesses pursue on the way to success. Business owners tend to constantly increase brand awareness and have a attractive, yet cost-efficient packaging to gain more businesses. Before you choose your boxes and place the order, think about the following factors.  

First of all you want to consider the main purpose of the boxes.  Are these boxes mainly for advertising and aesthetic purposes or are they meant to protect the contents?  If the boxes you are looking for are mainly for aesthetic purposes you are going to want a box that comes with full colour printing such as a gift boxes, cosmetic boxbeverage box or display boxesProduct boxes can be almost any size and are available in matte or glossy finishes.  These boxes are designed to complement the products they enclose and provide great promotional advantages to your products.  Product boxes look great on retail shelves and customers often perceive products that come in a box as better quality than those that stand alone.  Although the primary purpose of this box is to make a product look better and promote your company it still functions to protect the contents and prevent damage, theft, and items becoming disorganized.

If the box you are looking for is more for protecting the contents you are going to want something in a thicker material.  Most of our product boxes come in 14 or 17 point card paper. This is great for printing on, but it is thing and not corrugated.  This means that it can provide a little protection for the products it encloses but not much.  If you are concerned about the contents of your boxes being damaged you will want to go with cardboard or corrugated cardboard boxes.  In these instances we recommend going with our packaging boxes which are available in E and F flute corrugation.  What are E and F flute corrugations?  These refer to how dense the corrugations are, or how close or far apart they are.  The more corrugations there are the closer they are together, the stronger and more durable the cardboard is.  Our packaging poxes are perfect for holding cases of materials such as drinks, cans, and other heavy items.  Not only are packaging boxes good for heavier items, but they are also great for breakable items.  An F Flute corrugated box is perfect for packaging electronic and breakable items because of the durable nature of the material as well leaving space for protective materials such as bubble wrap.

Once you have figured out what they main purpose of your boxes  is you need to consider the style that is best for the contents.  We offer a wide variety of box styles to suit any product including; roll end tuck, snap locked bottom, tuck end, auto-lock bottom, sealed end, sleeve, gable, tuck end with hand tab, display, frame view, roll end tray, pillow, and hexagon styles.

Once you have determined the style of box that is best for you, you need to consider what size to get.  When determining the size of box you need you want to consider the contents of the box and how much room you want items to be able to move around.  If you are looking for a box that will fit perfectly around the contents make sure that you leave a little room on each side or else it will be difficult to fit the product into the box.  If there will be multiple items in the box think of how they will move around, will they break if shaken?  Do you want them organized in a specific way within the box?  As well, are the contents breakable?  If so you will either want to include protective packaging or a box that the item fits snugly into to prevent damage.

Next you must consider how you want your boxes to look.  Do you want a matte or glossy finish?  Do you want full colour printing or just one colour?  These aesthetic choices are all up to you.  We can accommodate almost any printing on the exterior of a box and even some printing on the interior of the box.  Just send in your artwork and we will show you what we can do.

Lastly, you need to think of how many boxes you want to order.  Most of our boxes are available in a quantity as low as 200 pieces.  When considering quantity you want to think of how often you want to be ordering more boxes.  Most items take approximately 8 weeks to arrive so you want to make sure that you have a good supply and aren't running short.  We recommend getting at least a three month supply each time you order.  This not only prevents you running out of boxes, decreases delivery fees or time waste making frequent trips to pick up boxes.  Don’t forget, different products need different boxes and may be sold in different quantities.  You may need 1000 small boxes but only 500 medium ones.  Following are some our of past work, and we do have more other boxes that you could choose from! =)

Get to Know Paper Bags

Types of Paper bags

What is Kraft paper bags?
Kraft paper bags are made from from a chemical pulp produced in the kraft process. Pulp produced by the kraft process is stronger than that made by other pulping processes; acidic sulfite processes degrade cellulose more, leading to weaker fibers, and mechanical pulping processes leave most of the lignin with the fibers, whereas kraft pulping removes most of the lignin present originally in the wood. Low lignin is important to the resulting strength of the paper as the hydrophobic nature of lignin interferes with the formation of the hydrogen bonds between cellulose in the fibers.  Kraft pulp is darker than other wood pulps, but it can be bleached to make very white pulp. Fully bleached kraft pulp is used to make high quality paper where strength, whiteness and resistance to yellowing are important.

What is a Wood free paper bag?
It is paper created exclusively from chemical pulp rather than mechanical pulp. Chemical pulp is normally made from pulpwood, but is not considered wood as most of the lignin is removed and separated from the cellulose fibers during processing, whereas mechanical pulp retains most of its wood components and can therefore still be described as wood. Wood-free paper is not as prone to yellowing as paper containing mechanical pulp.  Even though the name says wood free wood is still used to make these bags.

What is a Art paper bag?
These bags are thicker, stronger, and more stylish than other types of paper bags, these more expensive bags often have ribbon handles and are used in high end shops.
