Earth Day: Three Reasons Why Subscription and E-Commerce Packaging Matter

Earth Day

We did not set out eight years ago to become a national leader in custom printed and branded e-commerce and subscription boxes but quite gratefully, it has turned-out that way.

We think it is at least in part because of our early understanding of the role this type of consumer packaging plays in the overall environment. With the incredibly fast rise of web based marketing and order fulfillment, the sheer volume alone dictates that we all assume some level of responsibility and Earth Day is a great time to remind ourselves and others what we do and why we do it.

While healing and protecting the environment is an incredibly … Read More

Custom Printed Packaging Options for Shipping Apparel

One color on Kraft box and matching envelope

We have been making eco-friendly, custom printed packaging for clothing and soft goods for years and there is no right or wrong when choosing between mailer envelopes and mailer boxes. However, recent changes in shipping weight and rates have forced everyone to reevaluate how they ship out their apparel products for e-commerce customers.

DIM Weight and the impact on shipping cost

Dimensional weight and rates have become a hot and not too favorable topic for shippers of all sizes because now size really does matter when it comes to shipping. Delivery services like UPS, FedEx and USPS who used to only consider weight when determining shipping rates, would only penalize … Read More

Top 5 Compostable Packaging Sources

Compostable Packaging Supplier Resource List

Compostable Food Service Packaging. Clear clamshells that compost are now widely available.

Without fail, at least once each week I receive a call from an exasperated sustainably-focused small business saying something like, “I am so happy to find your company!

As a leading manufacturer of custom packaging and labels which are always recycled, recyclable, compostable and/or bio-degradable, it’s wonderful positive reinforcement to know we’re needed, and to know many (more and more) small businesses value compostable packaging. It’s clear business owners want a simple, easy-to-use … Read More
