Save Money and Reduce Damage with Branded Shipping Box Sizes

PIcky Bars bars

We understand print plates and when necessary, cutting dies, can be costly especially when you are in startup mode. Quite often we will suggest consolidating box sizes to minimize the number of different size boxes a new customer may have to buy, store and use. This is very good advice especially when the usage/volume history has not been determined yet. There is nothing worse than creating a custom size or custom print box and then realizing you have little need for it.

The Benefits of Using Multiple Size Branded Boxes

While it seems I discourage the use of multiple size boxes, I also have to add that there are situations … Read More

Ready for a Homespun Holiday?

Burlap Stitch Collection

Here at Nashville Wraps we may not be ready for the colder months ahead. But they will be made a little cozier with our whimsical, homespun Holiday Stitches Collection. These paper shopping bags feature a burlap background with a hand-stitched edged look. Appliques of Christmas trees and snowmen make this a darling collection this season.

Designer Donna Ritchie explains, “The Holiday Stitches collection was inspired by the ‘bursting with burlap’ trend. There seems to be no end to what you can do with … Read More

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
