How Not Having Custom Made Cardboard Boxes Is a Bad Idea

custom made cardboard boxes is perhaps the best type of packaging material that all of us are aware of. Let us admit: corrugated fiberboard is a very rough and heavy material, while Kraft is a bit low on the heavy and rough side, it is still there. You need custom made cardboard boxes if your product demands a delicate and nice packaging.

Let me elaborate on this for you. If you are into soap business, perfume or cosmetics business or any business associated with a product somehow related to beauty, fragrance, food or similar fields, you got to get high-quality custom cardboard boxes. Why? Because they look and feel like something that corrugated fiberboard and Kraft cannot.

In this post, I am going to pile up 3 most important reasons why not getting customized cardboard boxes is a bad idea for your product and your company.

Let us have a look:

1.      Because Corrugated and Kraft Materials Are Not That Good

Alright, I would like to rephrase it for you. There is definitely a need for Kraft and corrugated material, but it is most needed for the kind of products different from the type of products I have mentioned above. Let us acknowledge that when it comes to smooth feel and look of a material, corrugated and Kraft are nowhere near cardboard.


Cardboard is a kind of material which is mostly used for packaging of the items that demand the kind of packaging done with attention paid to its aesthetics. For example, consider cosmetic boxes and cosmetic items boxes etc. Most of the time, they are made of cardboard, not Kraft or corrugated.

2.      Readymade Packaging

Alright, now that we know that we got to get customized cardboard boxes for our beautiful products, it is the time to address the question “Why customized?” It is because readymade boxes are simply not even close to being as good as the custom designed cardboard boxes are. Readymade cardboard boxes only have the kind of material that you want, plus some minimalistic packaging features such as finishing, colors, and printing on them. If you want to maximize the branding and marketing impact of your cardboard boxes, you got to get custom made cardboard boxes for yourself.


3.      Features of Customized Cardboard boxes

The biggest reason why custom designed cardboard boxes are the only packaging solutions that you need is the features that this type of packaging offers. We are talking about die cut window pane, spot/full UV, aqueous coating, embossed wording or debossing, gluing, perforation, scoring, PVC sheet and definitely, above all, high quality matte or gloss finish.

If you think that matte or gloss finish are not enough and you need some sort of foiling as well, you can have gold foil or silver foil as well. These next level customization effects are the reason why you should prefer custom made cardboard boxes to the readymade ones.

Also, apart from these very apparent reasons why you should get custom cardboard boxes, there are some other reasons as well. Cardboard is a highly biodegradable material. You can source it easily with help of FSC or PEFC etc. The recyclability of this material is simply beyond any other material and then it can be used again for the same or similar purposes. Cardboard, as compared to Kraft and corrugated fiberboard, is very easy to cut, fold, crease, shape, and print on.


With these so many good reasons to use custom made cardboard boxes, there is no reason why you would go for any other material. Customized cardboard boxes are easy to get, affordable and much useful as compared to other materials such as plastic, corrugated fiberboard, and Kraft etc.
