Types of Custom Packaging

  • Padded or bubble mailers: These mailers use a source of protection directly in the packaging design.
  • Mailer boxes: These are smaller sized boxes which are about a size of a document envelope however, with square sides.
  • Custom mailer envelopes: These mailer envelopes are regular in size and are flexible conventional mailing envelopes.

  • Rigid envelopes: These mailer envelopes use a paperboard layer in order to add rigidity and durability to the package.

When it comes to deciding the kind of packaging you will use, you will be required to think about the contents of the boxes, its size and the nature of their fragility. When it comes to the large and fragile items, the conventional box mailer is the best option there is.

How the Packaging is Printed?

The three methods of custom packaging printing are as follows:

  • Flexographic printing: It is the most common form of custom box printing. The manner in which it works is like a rubber stamp on a huge scale. It is a printing place with the design of your box which acts like a large ink pad that is spun around on a rotary drum, picks up ink and then stamps it onto your corrugated box.
  • Digital Printing: it is the most preferred option for smaller sized orders. It is quite similar to the standard laser jet printer. The machinery mixes the ink and applies the color and design directly on the box.

  • Litho Label Printing: Litho is short for lithographic which offers a clean and high resolution printing that works like a wallpaper. Unlike printing, litho is printed onto a paper sheet, processed, cut and then finally attached to the box via a form of adhesive. When a box is covered with a litho label entirely, it is referred to as a full label and the partial covering is called as spot label.
