What’s new in shipment packaging?

Is 2019 the year of the cardboard box? The year of the color pink? The year of sustainability? It’s all three. 2018 is about to wrap up so let’s take a look at what’s fresh and new in shipment packaging.

Use a splash of Living Coral color!

Apple and Airbnb’s use of the color coral during the past year helped secure the almost-pink color, “Living Coral” as the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year (16-1546).

A press release says the color “symbolizes our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits” and is naturally ideal for packaging applications because this warm, welcoming and life-affirming shade “invites us to reach out and touch.” Sprinkle a bit of Living Coral on your customized shipment box to share some good vibes with your customers.

Living Coral not your brand’s color? Some of our favorite hues are used to customize shipment boxes that reflect the personality and messaging of our customers’ brands. Take your pick!

Commit to Green! 

Consumers continue to care about the size of their carbon footprint. You can help by reducing the number of materials needed when packing your products for shipping. Don’t use oversized boxes when smaller sizes will do. Use recycled content and recyclable materials, whenever possible.

Build Anticipation!

We can thank Apple for starting the unboxing craze. The entire consumer experience, from the online purchase to unboxing the product upon delivery, is a priceless opportunity for small and large businesses alike. These “micro-interactions” are essential to creating a positive e-commerce experience, so get creative with custom-printed (interior and exterior) cardboard boxes, branded packaging tape, colored crinkle paper, and personalized notes.
