Intro to Custom Packaging
We believe in the power of beautiful packaging. That’s why we offer custom packaging labels, individually wrapped products with your choice of ribbon or twine, your selection of crinkle paper, and custom packing slips! But it doesn’t stop there. . . With Deluxe Custom Packaging, you can choose from a wide variety of ribbon and crinkle paper, add your logo and a promotional image to a marketing card and more. You can learn more about our Custom Packaging Options HERE.
How it Works
When you first sign up, your Custom Packaging Options will be blank. We won’t put a label on the outside of your packages; we’ll use protective wrap instead of crinkle paper. Your packing slips will still have your Company Display Name, and products will still be individually wrapped in protective wrap.
Suppose you want to take advantage of our Custom Packaging Options, head over to the Custom Packaging page and select your favorite options. The Custom Packaging plan you choose will be enabled on your account by clicking the button.
When you place an order, it’ll be packed with the Custom Packaging plan you currently have enabled. That means you can allow Basic Packaging before placing sample orders to avoid the fee or even use Deluxe Packaging as a way to offer your customers a gift wrapping option. It’s entirely up to you! There are no fees associated with switching your plan or changing your options.
Custom Packaging Labels
Make your packages pop with a full-color label designed by you! Click the link for detailed instructions on How to Create Your Label.
Here’s how we’ll use your custom label:
Basic Packaging Label
We’ll print your design on a 2.5-inch round label and place it on the outside of the box. On smaller packages, we’ll put it centered on one side, and on larger boxes and poly mailers, we’ll place it in the upper corner. Whether a box, padded envelope, poly mailer, or tube, we’ll make your label look amazing!
Deluxe Packaging Label
Not only will we print your full-color design on a 2.5-inch label for the outside of the package, but we’ll also print it on 2.5-inch labels for each individually wrapped item inside. A few things don’t get a label because they’re either too small or don’t work well for a label. Gift boxes will have a 2-inch label centered on the lid (select items only).
Custom Packing Slips
We like to keep our packing slips simple. So here’s what they include:
- Your Company Display Name
- Order Date
- Shipping Address
- Our Order Number
- Product List (no prices listed)
- Your Customer’s Gift Message
Ribbon and Crinkle Paper
Basic Packaging and Deluxe Packaging both include individually wrapped items. Some items, such as art prints, totes, and cosmetic bags, are placed in sealed protective bags. Other things, such as mugs, baby blankets, and beverage tumblers, are placed in an open-ended cellophane bag. For those products, we’ll tie a bow to close the bag using your choice of colored ribbon or twine. If you don’t have anything selected, we’ll twist, tuck, or use twine to close the bag if necessary.
Deluxe Packaging includes crinkle paper. Crinkle paper isn’t just fantastic because it’s festive and colorful; it’s also great because it keeps your products safe on the way to your customer! You can choose from various colored crinkle paper, including metallics and seasonal colors. If you don’t have any crinkle paper selected, we’ll use more protective wrap to keep your products safe.
Now that you’ve got the hang of adding Printed Mint products to your shop and customizing your packaging, it’s time to design!
