With over 75% of the population placing at least one online order each month, many businesses are faced with the dilemma of finding packaging that is not only durable but aesthetically pleasing. From letterbox flowers to coffee subscriptions, ecommerce postal boxes have become more and more versatile to cater to the growing market.
With 33% of customers deeming a brand unprofessional when receiving their orders in poor quality or damaged packaging, it’s more important than ever that businesses choose their packaging carefully. Gone are the days of packaging your items in any old cardboard box. Nowadays, e-commerce packaging is bespoke and specially designed to protect a product and tell a brand’s story.
As the demand for online shopping increases, online retailers are turning to printed postal boxes to cater to their packaging needs. With printed mailer boxes, businesses can provide robust yet appealing packaging that will wow your customers by delivering an unbeatable unboxing experience.
Key Features of Printed Postal Boxes
Whether you need subscription box packaging or letterbox size boxes, printed postal boxes are equipped with all the features you need from ecommerce packaging.
Typically made from corrugated board which has a minimum of three layers for cushioning and security, printed mailer boxes are well equipped to protect your products during transit. Available in a variety of different flute sizes with a range of different design and coating options, corrugated board offers both durability and style.
The materials used are also cost-effective, allowing you to minimise your expenses while ensuring your product is well protected.
With printed postal boxes, you can choose from a variety of different shapes, sizes and styles to design the perfect packaging solution for your brand. As these materials are great for printing on, printed postal boxes are great options for bespoke packaging boxes. From engraved logos to printed patterns, custom printed mailer boxes are taking the ecommerce world by storm.
For businesses that prefer a more luxurious box, printed postal boxes can be enhanced with inserts, dividers and integral fittings. As well as displaying your product, these add-ons will provide additional security for your products.
What’s more, your custom ecommerce packaging can be supplied in a way that best suits you. Either flat-packed to make the most of a small picking space or fully assembled to make life easier for your workers, ecommerce boxes don’t have to be a logistical nightmare.
