Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer – perhaps the perfect sustainable packaging product

Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer

We have had the opportunity to bring many green products to market but one of my favorites is our Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer because it is so unique.

What makes the GGRBS such a green and sustainable product? Here are a few reasons:

  1. It is manufactured out of recycled plastic
  2. It is unlikely anyone will ever wear one out, but if it was no longer needed, (not likely) it can easily be recycled again
  3. When it is used, it can potentially save MILES of costly plastic or paper tape
  4. During its life cycle it can potentially eliminate the need for hundreds or maybe even thousands of corrugated RSC style

So You Want to Launch a Subscription Box Program?

Several versions of stock 9x6x2 mailer

Subscription programs are an excellent way to develop and grow an E-commerce business. They vary greatly from snack foods to DIY programs for home based fashion designers as well as for kids. What they all have in common is that they are attempting to establish a long term, reoccurring relationship with a consumer that buys the products the subscription company offers. The business model is well proven and it can be profitable quickly, if you follow some fairly simple advice.

One of the first things potential shippers look at is the possibility of utilizing custom printed, branded packaging which is an area that we specialize in. After dozens and dozens … Read More

NEW 100% Recycled Black Bakery Boxes are a Classic!

Bakery Boxes Black

Nashville Wraps bakery packaging just got a grand new look with the addition of our Black Licorice Bakery Boxes. These black gloss boxes are made from 100% recycled paper in the USA.  They are super easy to fold with their 1-piece, front-loading design and meet FDA requirements for direct food contact.

They are a great complement to our very popular 100% recycled Pink, Chocolate and White Bakery Boxes.  All of these boxes range in size from a single cupcake design up to a large sheet cake with every size in between to hold pies, cookies, brownies, pastries and more.

What is really fun about the new black gloss … Read More

Is Your Packaging Still Green?

Thinking

The question has been asked a few times recently, making us realize that perhaps we need to periodically remind others (primarily prospective customers and vendors) that we are still very much in the green packaging business. Yes, we have become very focused on custom printing and branding to help companies enhance their customer’s experience, but never at the expense of using less than environmentally friendly packaging. Most of our customers understand and appreciate that we can help them accomplish both their sustainability and branding objectives. The best of both worlds!

FSC Certified Folding Carton Boxes

fsc-logo

FSC-Certified packaging continues to rise in popularity, and we are producing more FSC-Certified packaging than ever.  Elevate Packaging is one of the few packaging companies using only FSC-Certified papers to create custom folding carton boxes and rigid set-up boxes.

Often we are asked what is FSC certified paper, and what are the benefits of choosing it over conventional paper — especially when the latter may be less expensive?

FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organization that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for forest products, independently certifies that these standards have been met, and bestows labels upon the products … Read More

What Type or Style of Custom Printed Corrugated Shipping Container Is Best For You?

Custom Branded Products

This is one of the first questions we ask any new inquiry about custom printed packaging and potential customer because that answer helps us determine everything from print plate cost to of course, container price. Occasionally a caller will question the need for all of our questions but as I remind people, you are no longer buying “off the rack”, and ordering a box that is already made and sitting in someone’s inventory. Since we print corrugated board, BEFORE it is converted to boxes, we can essentially make your box to your exact specifications. That gives you complete control and flexibility. There are many variations, but here are a few … Read More
