Q: How does the process work?

A: We will complete a structural design based on your requirements. If your needs are basic, the design fee is minimal. For more complex packaging, the cost of structural design could be $500-$2,500. After the structural design is completed we’ll provide an electronic die line (blueprint) of the box so you can lay out your artwork.

If you need assistance with graphic design, we can recommend a graphic designer that is suited to your project. Once we receive the completed die line back from you with artwork, we will produce your packaging in two to three weeks. A color proof will be provided for your approval prior to running the job. In most cases it takes about 4-6 weeks from start to finish.

Q: What is the minimum quantity of units that I can purchase?

We can produce small quantities, but the initial set up costs do not change and can range from $5,000 – $10,000.

Q: What if I need inner support or a tray for my product?

A: We can assist you with the design and manufacture of custom trays, foam and other protective packaging. It’s always best to send us exactly what you are going to package so that we can engineer the correct inner packaging solution. We will send the product(s) back after the design is complete.
