5 Benefits of Custom Printed Corrugated Boxes

1. Durability

Corrugated cardboard is one of the sturdiest and most secure packaging types on the market. It has a structurally sound design — one layer of fluting between two layers of cardboard — that provides exceptional cushioning for even the most fragile products.

It’s also a consumer’s preferred packaging choice. 70% of women and 65% of men say paper and corrugated cardboard packaging makes a product more attractive than other packaging materials. In fact, 71% of American consumers say they are more likely to buy brands that package their products in paper or cardboard than other materials.

2. Cost-Effectiveness and Sustainability

There are various corrugated cardboard box types and sizes, making them an excellent option for your unique needs. At Dusobox, our corrugated boxes can be fitted to your specific product, reducing the amount of packaging material — bubble wrap, peanuts, etc.— you need to use.

Corrugated cardboard is also more sustainable than other packaging materials. It’s lightweight, which lowers freight and handling costs and emissions. It’s also recyclable; on average, corrugated cardboard boxes are made from 70% to 90% recycled materials. Nearly 80% of American consumers consider sustainability when purchasing products, so corrugated cardboard could be a great addition to your sustainability practices.

3. Elevated Customer Experience

Instead of blank space, think of your boxes as inexpensive marketing material to megaphone your business’ brand, values, and mission statement. You could even highlight important regulatory or informational copy to inform your customers. With the ability to print on the inside and outside of the box, you could significantly cut down on extra paper or marketing materials inside the box.

At Dusobox, we work with you to offer the most cost-effective solution for custom printed corrugated boxes. In the past, businesses were relegated to litho-lamination and flexography for high-quality graphics on custom corrugated boxes. Now, advances in the printing process have launched corrugated digital printing into mainstream use. This has expanded the options available to brands and gives you a great opportunity to better connect and communicate with your customers.

4. Greater Brand Awareness

Custom printed corrugated boxes are a great way to expand brand awareness without spending additional marketing dollars. From your customer to their next-door neighbor, or even the delivery person, you’ll attract more attention to your brand with a custom box than a standard brown container.

How much is an investment in custom printed corrugated boxes really worth? Odds are, it can improve your bottom line. Direct-to-consumer shipping — think subscription boxes and online purchases — have skyrocketed recently, along with unboxing videos posted on social media. In these videos, people film themselves opening their most recent purchase and upload them to popular sites like YouTube. If you have attractive packaging, your brand is more likely to show up in these videos, giving you free advertising.
