Domestic Packaging Suppliers Have Much to Offer

Trucks are always faster than ships

Those of us who have been around the packaging industry for any length of time watched as jobs and manufacturing went overseas, quickly followed by packaging. Our claims of better quality, faster deliveries, etc. fell on deaf ears as buyers were increasingly attracted to Asia, lured by the great deals that seemed to be available everywhere outside the USA. I recall one particularly excited buyer who said “Free tooling, delivered pricing, comparable quality at less than half the price, how can I possibly resist?” Many did not try to resist but many of those same companies and buyers are now bringing their manufacturing and/or their packaging home again.

Are all Globe Guard® 100% recycled content RSC boxes no longer available?

The only part of our program that is being eliminating is the stock boxes. We can still custom run plain or printed boxes as ordered in any size or board grade.

How to Create an Irresistible Sustainable Brand

Aloha DailyGood Foundation  recycled paper Folding Boxes from Elevate Packaging

The Whole “Brand” Picture

Suppose your product is sustainable.  That is, your product may be 100% organic,
natural, holistic, fair trade, recycled, compostable, or embodies some
über-sustainable attribute.  And, your sustainable product is perfectly designed
for the needs of a booming sustainably-minded consumer market.

It seems you’re ready to grow sales in the sustainable marketplace.  Wait!  A rather important checkpoint remains.  Is the packaging aligned with the sustainable brand promise?  If not, there may be good reason for pause and avoid a potential marketing misstep which could cost much more than your brand reputation.

The sustainable market is growing rapidly.  For example, the organic food segment grew 238% while the … Read More

Custom Printed Boxes – the Inside Story  

While we help our customers create some of the most beautiful and memorable shipping boxes you will see anywhere, we absolutely hate what USPS, FedEx and UPS do to them. They always look fantastic when they leave the shipping location but are usually less than perfect when they arrive at the recipient’s home or office. Many of our customers have discovered that a great solution is to print the inside of the box, in addition to the outside or in some cases, in lieu of printing the outside.
