One of the fastest growing areas of e-commerce is snacks, ranging from health-conscious options to some that are just delicious and do not claim any health benefit at all. In either case, they taste good and satisfy a need with a product that thanks to ecommerce and subscription programs, can be conveniently delivered to your mailbox.

What’s hot? E-Doughble!

One of our most unusual and recent success stories is our friends at www.edoughble.com Check out their website to see the delicious flavors and box assortments they offer of their edible cookie dough products.

It was the variety of gift pack options that made their packaging a challenge. Different size containers, different counts, with and without flavor packs. You can see just a few of their most popular combinations from the attached photo.

We reviewed all of their products and combinations, and helped them create a packaging design that uses only two different size boxes and six different inserts to minimize the number of packaging SKU’s and reduce their overall packaging costs. Branding and efficiency was the goal, and the end results speak for themselves.

26 Jul 2017 Packaging for E-commerce Apparel and How to Minimize the Cost

Mailer boxes and envelopes for clothing, Salazar Packaging, e-commerce, Packaging for E-commerce Apparel and How to Minimize the Cost

Shipping clothing can be challenging because of the number of order variations that are possible. Whether you are shipping organic baby clothes or lingerie, tee shirts or dress shirts, each order can potentially be different, impacting the type and size of packaging required, as well as shipping weight costs. Are you shipping e-commerce orders of one single item or bulk shipping wholesale orders? Here are a few tips to help you minimize your costs:

Not all clothing requires a shipping box

As you can see from the photos included in this post, mailer envelopes are a great solution for smaller items being shipped. For example, dozens of tee shirt shipping customers use our unpadded paper mailers because they are relatively low cost, very green, and can be branded in very small quantities.

Most soft goods don’t require it, but if you feel you need a more moisture resistant or padded mailer envelope, our poly mailers are a good option and can also be custom printed at a higher MOQ. See minimums “related post” link below.

Compared to boxes, mailer envelopes are:

  • Lighter in weight, reducing inbound and outbound shipping costs
  • Less storage space for you
  • Less waste for your customer

Shipping Boxes for Wearing Apparel

Mailer boxes and envelopes for apparel, salazar packaging, e-commerce packagingThere are times when the order size, the type of customer (bulk wholesale), or the application requires a corrugated shipping container. For example, you may be able to minimize wrinkling of the garments being shipped by utilizing a box rather than a flat mailer.

Most clothing shipped in corrugated containers ship in die cut mailer style boxes. That is the type of box that has an attached lid and opens like a cigar box. This makes packaging and unpacking easier, and visually is a better presentation compared to an RSC style box. For branding purposes, the inside lid of the die cut mailer creates a great billboard and a great spot to say thank you or reinforce your brand image.

For larger, bulkier orders, an RSC style box may be the best option and can be printed in a low, 1,000 MOQ. That is the type of box that has four flaps on top and four on the bottom (typical moving box design) and is sealed with two pieces of plastic or paper tape. If you require this type of container, we offer two good pieces of advice:

  1. Resist the temptation to save a few cents on a lower grade, thinner, corrugated box made of 32 ECT corrugated board. 200# test corrugated is unnecessary for many applications, but for clothing, which is unexpectedly heavy, it is worth minimal additional cost to make sure the boxes do not rupture when dropped.
  2. Much product damage occurs when the recipient decides to open an RSC with a sharp knife or scissors. Since we make all our RSC’s to order, we can easily extend the flaps if necessary to prevent your customer from inadvertently damaging the product you ship.

I would say very few companies have the experience and success we have in making shipping containers for soft goods and apparel. Whatever your product or objective, one of our branded packaging advisors is available at no cost, at 630-551-1700 to discuss your requirements. Or if you prefer, contact us via email Salazar Packaging.com   and visit our gallery to see more of our work.

22 Jun 2017 Packaging for Eyewear and Contacts

Warby-Parker, Salazar Packaging, subscription packaging, e-commerce packagingThis time of year, even us Midwesterners are breaking out the sunglasses, and of course, eye glasses have become as much a fashion statement as a necessity. For those in need of vision assistance who don’t like glasses, contact lenses are the preferred choice. Two things they all have in common is that they can all be purchased over the internet, and each require shipping containers.

One of our early branded packaging customers was Warby-Parker. They basically pioneered prescription glasses purchased on line with their HTO (Home Try On) boxes which we manufactured for them. Since then, we have created packaging for many manufacturers of glasses, sun glasses, and specialty contact lenses.

Balancing Protection and Presentation for Eyewear Shipping Containers

We all realize helping the product arrive undamaged is most important, but at the same time the packaging must look great, and it also must be economical. Keep in mind the average pair of glasses might already have multiple layers of packaging:

  1. The primary case that makes direct contact with the product and is likely to be kept and reused by the consumer. (We are NOT a supplier of this type of packaging)
  2. Possibly a rigid (paperboard) box that may or may not be kept and reused by the consumer. (We do design and create rigid wall boxes as well)
  3. The shipping container that is rarely reused or kept by the consumer. This could be a single or multiple like the Bon Look photo below. (we do supply this product)

This helps to understand why the shipping containers (the third item listed) should be effective and affordable because it is a very necessary but usually disposable layer of packaging.

Salazar Packaging, e-commerce, subscription packagingUnboxing Experience for Eyewear

With all this in mind, that all important unboxing experience (presentation) begins on the outer layer, usually a corrugated container. What most shippers don’t realize is that a great looking, custom size and custom printed box is only slightly more expensive than a plain, boring, oversized corrugated box. Not only can a larger (than necessary) box and void fill add cost, it can also add shipping weight and that can be additional cost as well.

Ideally the shipping container allows the product to arrive safely but not look too “industrial.” Reinforcing the brand and image is added value as well, for the shipper as well as the recipient. Here are a few ways you can enhance your box and turn it into more than a shipping container:Salazar Packaging, e-commerce packaging, subscription packaging, custom packaging

  • Custom print the exterior – show off that logo in a registered or very popular random repeat print
  • Custom Print the interior – since the shipping label dominates the exterior, the best place to make a great impression is on the inside of a small container
  • Color – standard white or Kraft as well as flood coats of any Pantone color you require
  • Unusual finishes – soft touch, high gloss, and everything in between is possible with varying minimums
  • Board variations, including triple white and thinner micro flute construction like E and F for strength without bulk

 

With volume (usually 1,000 boxes or more) just about anything is possible. So please contact us at Salazar Packaging or call us at 630-551-1700 to discuss your application. We have the experience to help you make the best possible impression on your customers.

15 Jun 2017 Packaging for Shipping Gifts

Packaging for Shipping Giftsgift packaging, award packaging, welcome kit packaging,

We tend to think of gift giving as a holiday thing or perhaps a special event such as an anniversary. The fact is that people and companies ship out a wide variety of gifts throughout the year as tokens of appreciation, an award for accomplishment or even just an intro or “welcome” kit. There are many reasons why you would want to ship a gift out to the recipient and even more reasons why the shipping container you use is important.

  1. A gift should appear thoughtful and personal. Not just an item thrown in a box filled with foam peanuts.
  2. A gift should arrive clean, orderly, and intact. Nothing ruins a moment or kills the WOW factor like a damaged gift.
  3. A gift should be brand consistent. A subtle reminder of where it came from is perfectly acceptable and expected.

Gift Packaging Application – Primary or Secondary? 

In some cases, we create over packaging that contains the already existing gift item packaging. The simple corrugated book fold shipper shown in the photo below provides the strength the internal (purple) box needs during the shipping cycle. Keep in mind most primary or initial packaging is NOT designed to ship individually via UPS, USPS or FedEx. The over shipper provides protection and eliminates the need to apply tape or labels directly in the gift, once again enhancing the unboxing experience.

Book fold shipper, Salazar PackagingIn other situations, like the Golub gift below, we eliminated most of the initial packaging and replaced the manufacturer’s lightweight paperboard box with a corrugated container that looks great and holds up in shipping. The result is a branded gift that ships with a totally customized, branded box for a first class look. When done correctly, a custom box will impress, protect, and add value to the recipient than the gift.customized packaging, gift packaging, welcome kit packaging

To discuss your specific project or needs with our people who make “packaging that communicates”, please contact us at Salazar Packaging or call us at 630-551-1700. We would love to help you create packaging that is as unforgettable as the gift you are giving.

18 May 2017 The Unboxing Experience – Beyond Esthetics for E-commerce and Subscription Packaging

e-commerce shipping, subscription packaging

The Unboxing Experience – Beyond Esthetics for E-commerce and Subscription Packaging

Much has been said and written about the importance of the unboxing experience. What the digital customer sees and feels when they receive and open your shipping container plays a critical role in the overall experience and shapes the seller/buyer relationship going forward.

Appearance is obviously important, but we consider that a given. Everything from ink colors, graphic design, and the perfect tissue paper makes an impression, and as we say communicates something about you, your company, and your product. We believe however, that adjectives such as pretty, classy, upscale, eye catching are all great, but there is a lot more going on than what meets the eye.

While we believe an unboxing experience has to look great, it also has to be effective. If it is not, all of the costly esthetic efforts end up being a waste of precious time and money. In addition to being attractive…

An effective unboxing experience has to be secure

All of the ribbon and bows in the world cannot make up for a damaged product. First and foremost the product being shipped has to arrive safely and in one piece.

improve your e-commerce packaging

An effective unboxing experience has to present the product well

The product should not be buried in packaging materials and it should not be floating around loose within the container due to poor insert or interior packaging design.

An effective unboxing experience has to be product accessible

As a designer of many “frustration free” designs, we know the consumer does not want to wrestle with or utilize tools to extract their product from your packaging.

 An effective unboxing experience has to be green

Consumers are becoming more and more sensitive to the amount of packaging arriving at their homes. The boxes for all of those books, shoes, clothes, and “meals by mail” they are buying has to go somewhere. The want minimal, high recycled content and easily recyclable packaging.

The Unboxing Experience Design Challenge

The real dilemma for most shippers is how do you accomplish all of these objectives (and others) at the same time? For example, how do you balance product protection versus shipping weight? Which is more important – presentation and accessibility or security? Are your customers focused on the WOW experience or the environment? And of course you need to deliver all of this in one neat, attractive package.

This is why it is wise to utilize a resource that has the experience of making millions of boxes and working with hundreds of companies like yours over the course of the last ten years. It all begins with an application review that includes a discussion about your customers, your products and even your competition. The better we know you and your goals, the easier it us for us to help you make an informed decision.

Sure we make and print some beautiful boxes and you can see many examples in our gallery but we also make effective boxes designed to not ruin the unboxing experience. Contact us at Salazar Packaging or call us at 630-551-1700 for a no cost, no obligation review of your packaging process and results.

27 Mar 2017 Salazar Packaging Celebrates 10Th Anniversary

Salazar Packaging Celebrates 10 Years

I could share a lot of history about our unique company we started ten years ago in the dining room of our home, but I realize it does not really matter to anyone but those of us who have lived it.

What is important is that thanks to a lot of good friends, manufacturing partners, and most of all to our many customers, we survived a tough and difficult economy by providing exceptional quality, and service and creating a company that is by all accounts, different.

Transparency is Key

We learned early when people order custom packaging from us, they are actually trusting us with their brand, their company, and in some cases their future. To earn that trust, we have created a company that is wide open in terms of what we do and how we do it.

Our web sites and especially our blogs are industry leaders in terms of information sharing. The goal is always helping our customers make informed decisions about their packaging and delivering the best, greenest, and most attractive packaging possible at the lowest potential cost. We believe in providing options so that a customer will never be surprised or experience regrets because of their lack of packaging experience.

Experience Matters

We had a distinct advantage when we started our company; my wife Lenora and I had over thirty years of combined experience in the packaging industry. With a firm grip on materials and applications, we also had the contacts within the industry to identify the best of the best in terms of manufacturing partners. We understood that it was not practical or possible to try to do everything well so we carefully chose our in–house capabilities and were even more selective when determining the people we could count on to supplement our efforts with specialized technical and productivity know how in many locations around the nation.

The first ten years have been amazing and we have gained a long list of customer friends and helped create some of the industry’s best looking boxes.

We also no longer operate out of our dining room. Perhaps the best one word description of how we feel is perfectly communicated by the painting below that now adorns the lobby our new customer service center. All we can say is thank you!

Salazar Packaging, eco-friendly packaging, green products

Please call us at 630-551-1700 or email us at Salazar Packaging to discuss your packaging objective, and how can help you accomplish it.

16 Jan 2017 Balancing Protection and Presentation on E-commerce and Subscription Boxes

e-commerce, shipping, subscription, mailers, shipping inserts, corrugated mailersThe worst possible customer experience is for an eagerly awaited product to arrive damaged or broken. In addition to having a very disappointed customer, you also have to deal with product replacement, which can make a profitable order very unprofitable, very quickly.

At the same time, most clients want high product visibility and a great experience for their customers when their package is opened. No one is eager to unwrap yards of foam or bubble cushioning material, wads of packing paper, or to sift through a box of foam packing peanuts or other loose fill cushioning product.

More Than a Pretty Shipping Box

We have learned that a great graphic design and print job is quickly overlooked when the glass jar of salsa being shipped, shatters. That is not the type of presentation anyone had in mind.

We are very proud of the printing work we do and a tour through our photo gallery will show great colors, creative designs, and boxes obviously designed to impress. However, properly protecting the product being shipped should always be a key consideration when the true, overall cost of a damaged shipment is factored in. We are especially careful with fragile products or anything in a glass container including sauces, candles, e-juice, and even liquor.

eco-friendly shipping, food shipping, e-commerceE-commerce packaging Solutions That Help Protect Without Sacrificing Appearance   

Few organizations deliver the WOW factor as often or as consistently as we do, but unlike companies who only print boxes, we create total packaging solutions that are customer and product specific. We fully understand what happens when a package is dropped and effect that impact and shock has on the packaging and product being shipped.

When it comes to internal/protective packaging, there are no “standard” or one size fits all answers, so we have gathered some of the best protective and green packaging products available, and more importantly, our experienced people know how to use them to help you deliver a great looking package at the lowest possible cost.

Here are a few examples of the type of protective, cushioning products we offer:

Die Cut Corrugated Designs – Typically a custom cutting die is required but these are by far the most popular because they have a low 1,000 MOQ, are relatively low cost, and extremely eco-friendly. Customers appreciate the high recycled content and the fact that they are easily recycled and re-pulped.

Corrugated and Paperboard dividers and partitions – Usually they do not require any type of tooling or cutting die. They are not designed to provide any cushioning but sometimes all that is really needed is product isolation and/or separation.

Die cut or molded foams – We have a dozen foam formulations available ranging from very soft and cushioning to very rigid and strong. Different foams for different applications makes this the most versatile option available.

Inflatable packaging products – If the volume is higher, 400 to 500 shipments per day, it is possible the best solution for you is an inflatable packaging system able to make pillows or even bubble on demand.

Molded Pulp – Usually the minimum and the necessary mold/tooling costs are higher but for some applications there is no greener or less labor intensive solution. Usually molded pulp is a great solution for the same size and shape product being shipped in volume. Example – cell phones.

No cost, no obligation application review

What is the best product and packaging process for you? As you may have gathered, there are a number of potential options and many factors we consider when helping you develop the appropriate packaging strategy.

The best way to find out is to contact us at Salazar Packaging via email or call us at 630-551-1700 for a confidential and free analysis of your requirements and objectives.

13 Sep 2016 Corrugated Box Increase Coming!

rising-corrugated-box-pricesIt has been over three years since the corrugated industry has had an increase so it should not be a total surprise, and I don’t want to be guilty of sounding a false or premature alarm, but it presently looks like an increase is inevitable and imminent.

This is NOT a Formal Increase Announcement…Yet.

All domestic corrugated sheet manufacturers have been announcing increases of between 8 and 10% and it is beginning to trickle down to the companies that make corrugated boxes from that higher priced board. Some stock box suppliers have already announced a 10% increase but we are not there yet. It is our intention to resist and delay any increase as long as possible and not put through an increase that hopefully might be rescinded in part or in whole.

So we are all in a wait-and-see mode and keep in mind, I could be wrong. Please see the bottom related post below where in May 2013 I warned of an increase that was later rolled back. However, now I think an increase is really overdue and the mills are going to get something.

No one likes to see rising prices but I am equally concerned about what this can do to lead times as we head into the busiest time of the packaging year. Any increase, especially a large one can and will cause extended lead times.

Our Advice to All Friends and Customers

Not knowing exactly when an increase on boxes is going to be announced and enforced, my suggestion is to not wait to place any year end or holiday order you may be contemplating. If you wait until the increase becomes fact, it will probably already be too late and the normal lead time could jump quickly from a fairly predictable one to two weeks to as much as four weeks or even more. There will be a big buy-in to avoid any increase and that will make the production line a long one.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at Salazar Packaging or call us at 630-551-1700 if you have any questions. We may not have all the answers regarding this industry wide increase but I can assure you we will do everything possible to minimize the negative impact on you and your business.

26 Apr 2016 Keap BK – Creates Simple Yet Elegant Packaging for their new Candle Line

Inside random repeat printThere are many candle companies out there but few make the products and presentation you will find at www.keapbk.com. Just like there are many packaging companies but few create the high quality, attractive, yet affordable custom printed packaging we do. So perhaps the collaboration between Keap BK and Salazar Packaging was inevitable and the end result, beautiful.

Keap BK – A Very Unique Candle Company

A visit to their web site shows how they have eliminated layers in the retail supply chain and how they can afford to sell high quality candles at very reasonable prices. In addition you will learn how they are a Certified B Corp and how they are committed to donating $1.00 for every candle they sell to Solar Aid, to help people around the world who are not connected to the power grid.

One of the things that first caught our attention was the pure, clean design of their product and company. So it did not surprise us when they decided to go with a minimalist exterior print on natural Kraft board and a very attractive, classy random repeat print inside. The package is eco-consistent and more importantly, consistent with the approach to market.

4 pack, 2 pack and single unit shippersGood Product Protection = Positive Customer Experience

Most people will appreciate the graphic design of the Keaps BK boxes, but few will notice the die cut insert and foam pieces that cushion and protect the glass candle jars during shipment. Nothing can ruin a customer experience like finding the product they have been excitedly waiting for has broken in shipment. Good interior/protective packaging typically goes unnoticed, unless of course it fails to do its job.

USPS, UPS and FedEx shipping can be brutal on any product, more so on any form of glass or fragile product. Keeping the product safe is indeed a challenge but one we understand and overcome on a regular basis.

If you are looking for a great looking candle, please check out Keap BK. If you need packaging that is equally beautiful, inside and out, contact us at Salazar Packaging or call us at 630-551-1700. One of our branded packaging advisors will be sure to help you create the package you want at the lowest possible cost.
