Custom Packaging – Making Them At Home without Spending Much
We are all impressed when we see something homemade. From food, gift items to packaging, anything that is homemade has a worth, value and life of its own. Maybe because you’ve put so much personal effort and love into it. Plus, you’ve used your creative part of the mind to come up with incredible ideas that you’ve put into the creation of the homemade custom packaging.
However, still it’s easy to order boxes from outside. It can be as precious, but then again, not as much as the one you made yourself.
That said, when you are a newbie and you need to promote a brand or product, you have limited resources and choices. But at the same time, you need to promote your items that you’ve taken so long to manufacture. You were very careful with the first part of manufacturing, now it’s time for those to hit the stores, but you are just not sure how to come about.
You can always choose the best printing companies in the market for the purpose, but if you don’t have that kind of money to spend, let’s look at an alternative. You can always make the boxes at home. It can be easy if you have a creative mind and the knack to come up with impeccable ideas.
The Making of Homemade Paper Customized Boxes
If you are keen to be making your own homemade custom packaging bags for your packaging needs, it’s not a difficult thing. If you have all the right set of skills and expertise along with the right material and accessories for making the boxes, you’re good to go.
Still however, you will need to hire a company or two for printing purpose. You see, you need a whole printing system for, which we are sure you definitely won’t have one. You can make plain looking boxes, that’s probably quite easy. But here’s the hard part. When people don’t know which company’s product they are buying, they might not even consider making the purchase, or even looking at your goods for that matter. Because you have left them with nothing to hold on to. Where are you from, what’s your company’s name, what is your product about. It’s just a plain looking box and you’ve put your product in it without giving any suitable information.
So to get started, you need to look over the internet. Look up for some incredible designs and styling ideas for your product’s packaging. Once you have come across those designs, the next thing you need to do is get the Kraft and/or cardboard sheets to get started on your work. You might need a pair of scissors, some quality glue, a ruler, a marker perhaps. You need these things to draw out the lines and edges of the design you want to make the sheets into.
The next thing is start cutting the sheets into the packaging. You need to be careful with that because you want fine, even cutting. It shouldn’t look too rough or uneven. Doesn’t give a very neat look.
Once all the cutting is done, now you need to glue all the pieces together. Make sure you don’t use too much glue. Yet, at the same time, you don’t need to apply very little of it too. You just need to put the right amount so that the pieces glue together nicely.
Now hire a good printing company for all the final touches like lamination, printing your name, logo, and other content for your product. This is how you can get your mascara packaging or for any other products done.
