Material And Color Printing Options to Choose From

Starting with the primary preference of most brands, white cardboard is very popular. It has several different variations of thicknesses to choose from. Depending on the dimensions of the box, it is usually preferred to stay under 350 gsm. This is usually because the cardboard may crack under its pressure.

If you consider rebranding using a different theme, kraft boxes are worth a look. Known for being manufactured from recycled material, kraft material is the future of packaging solutions. It can recycle back into nature or use repeatedly for different purposes again and again. Though it helps in saving the planet, it has some printing limitations. It is not recommended to print more than three solid colors.

Add-Ons and Embellishments Enhance Impression

A wide variety of add-ons are available to choose from; however, some commonly used are;

Foiling (Hot Stamping) is a process where an impression is made over a specific point. It stands out because the impression is brushed metal and comes in exciting colors. Available in silver, black, gold, and many more colors. 

The second position goes to a process called spot UV. Brands and customers love this process because it makes the design pop. An invisible layer goes over any specific region, making it stand out from the rest silky finish.

To Sum it Up

This is the way to go if you are looking for a head-turner style. With custom pillow boxes, you are in control of everything. Depending on the industry in which you are representing, you choose dimensions, colour, and material. Some famous industries, like cosmetics and soap, use custom printed packaging in the same category. Available in white cardboard with unlimited printing options and kraft material with limited printing options. Some pre-recommended material thicknesses to choose from depending on the dimensions of the box. Essential and most used add-ons, including foiling and spot UV, are widely popular with branded pillow boxes.
