Packaging for E-Juice or Vape

Vape in 4 bottle presentation box

As people attempt to overcome their addiction to cigarettes, or simply look for a more convenient, affordable and socially acceptable form of enjoying their habit, E-juice, or vape as it is often called, is growing into big business. You see the shops opening and unfortunately, often times quickly closing in many strip mall retail settings, while many more successfully reach that fast growing market through a low cost internet business.

Many agree E-commerce is the easiest, lowest cost road to success for selling E-juice and this of course creates a need for low cost, effective packaging. It also provides numerous packaging challenges because of the variety of bottle types and … Read More
