Branding or Re-Branding Your Subscription or E-Commerce Box

gallery-banner

There are several important differences between a concept, yet to be launched program, and one that has developed a customer base and is growing steadily. For the brand new program with zero subscribers, we recommend reading the first related post below to help determine if branded boxes are truly in your best interest at this time.

This blog post is aimed at the program that has some experience and is certain about:

  1. the size of the containers they want to use
  2. the number of boxes they ship out monthly
  3. last but not least – their identity.

From Labels to Branded Boxes

We often recommend labels for a customer who is … 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! I have been searching forever to find an authentic sustainable packaging company! You’d never believe how difficult it has been!” (actually, now I do…)

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

Luxury Retail Packaging Meets Eco-Friendly

EcoLuxe Packaging

Is it time for a high-end packaging makeover? Want to start 2015 by giving your luxury brand a new look?

High-end retail packaging for classic luxury products such as jewelry, perfumes and colognes has often been the focus, however, luxury retail has encompassed consumable segments including bodycare, candles, chocolates, and many more luxurious delights and indulgences! The growing concerns related to eco-friendly and environmental concerns has a direct impact on these brands and the packaging decisions they make.

Without a doubt, we can all agree the Eco and Green retail product segment has been steadily growing. And over the past decade luxury retail brands have become increasingly more sustainability-minded, giving … 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
