Custom Boxes for Cards
When it comes to online business, the packaging is just as important as the product itself. Today, I’m going to talk about the importance of having beautiful packaging for your boxes for cards. Now, you may be selling them at a craft fair or selling them wholesale. Or maybe you’re selling them on your website or on Etsy. Whatever you’re doing, you want it to look good and professional.
I’ve been making cards for over twenty years and I have tried many different types of boxes for cards. I’ve used plastic bags, tissue paper and even a small tin box at one point. It was very nice but quite expensive. I also tried using a gift bag with tissue paper and that looked pretty good too until I realized how much it cost me in shipping fees! For the past few years now, my go-to choice has been these cardboard boxes with a clear lid. They are great in many ways – they are inexpensive, they come in different sizes depending on what you need and they are food safe (if you want to use them as favour boxes).
How to Make a Card Box
You can make boxes for cards out of any material you like, but paper mache boxes are inexpensive and easy to work with. For a wedding card box, you can use the same materials to make a cardholder that functions as an attractive decoration for your reception. Here’s how:
Step 1: Choose a Box
Choose a box that is large enough to fit all of the cards you expect to receive. It should also be attractive enough to function as a decoration at your reception. To make sure it will fit in with the rest of your decorations, choose one that fits your theme and colour scheme.
Step 2: Cover Your Box
Cover your box by glueing it on fabric or paper. You can also paint or wallpaper it for a unique look. Use glue or double-sided tape for best results (super glue won’t work on paper mache).
Step 3: Decorate Your Box
Add any decorations you like to personalize your card box. You can add ribbon or lace around the edges and even small details like buttons, bows, beads and small flowers. Make sure that whatever you add is also glued down well so it won’t fall off while your guests are using the boxes for cards.
Boxes for Handmade Cards
Handmade cards printing is a great way to show someone you care. Sometimes, though, it’s hard to know how to package your homemade card so that the recipient doesn’t ruin it by opening the envelope.
One easy solution is to use a small box for handmade cards. This is a simple and effective way to send your card through the mail without worrying about damage or folding.
You can buy boxes for handmade cards at stationery stores, but it’s also easy to make a box for a handmade card yourself.
Cardboard boxes for cards are the ideal packaging solution for all kinds of greetings cards, invitations and R.S.V.P. If you are looking to make a statement with your card products, then these boxes are a great option as they are available to order in a large range of sizes, colours and finishes.
