It is common to be perplexed about how to package a product; however, applying the proper steps and methods to your custom cosmetic box process can make a significant difference. You should be able to expect your product to arrive at its destination in the same condition in which it was shipped, regardless of the product you are shipping. Cosmetic boxes may generally be split into three types. When it comes to cosmetic boxes, there are several important steps that any company should take to ensure product safety. Follow these six steps to ensure that your product is packaged flawlessly every time it is shipped!
1. Make a plan.
Although it may seem obvious, organizing the cosmetic box space in a distribution center can make a significant difference. A workspace should be large enough to accommodate moving the package around, as well as having easy access to all of the necessary custom cosmetic box materials.
Ideal storage space or pegboards should be provided in the workspace to allow for the storage of a large variety of materials, as different types and sizes of products will necessitate the use of different materials. Keeping your cosmetic box space well-stocked and organized will amaze you at how much time it can save you during production.
2. Take a measurement
It is a good idea to measure your product before selecting the shipping box that will be used to ship it to its destination. Once your product has been measured, add approximately 2 inches to the width, height, and length of each dimension to determine the ideal box size. This ensures that you will have enough space to individually wrap each product and fill your box with additional padding to ensure that your goods are protected during transit.
3. Make a choice
Now that you've measured your product or products, it's time to choose the most appropriate box for them. Hughes offers a diverse range of corrugated cosmetic boxes that are suitable for use in a variety of products and industries. They are one of the most common and safest custom cosmetic box materials because they are designed to be strong and durable. Please refer to our package size chart to ensure that you are ordering the correct sized box for your requirements. If you are looking for a specific size or style of box that is not currently available, please see our extensive selection of custom corrugated cosmetic boxes.
4. Take precautions.
Now that you've chosen your , it's time to think about how you'll protect your product. There are many different types of protective cosmetic boxes available, so make sure to select the one that best meets the needs of your company. To find out whether bubble wrap, Instapak Foam cosmetic boxes, an Air Bag Inflation System, or one of our numerous other options is the best choice for your shipment, please contact a Hughes Representative. After all, it is preferable to be extra cautious than to have your product be harmed during shipping.
Remember to wrap each product individually if you are shipping more than one product in a box so that your merchandise does not clink against each other during shipping and cause damage to one another. When shipping fragile goods, it is critical that you use adequate cushioning in your box to ensure that the products are protected from any shocks, vibrations, or jolts during transit.
5. Seal the deal
When you have ensured that your product is properly protected and that it has been properly packaged, it is time to seal the box. Use of cellophane or duct tape is not recommended because neither is strong enough to properly seal your box. Instead, look for tapes or adhesives that are appropriate for the job. Before sending your product out for shipping, double-check that the seal is completely sealed on it. To prevent the cosmetic box from opening during shipment, apply 2-3 strips of tape where the cosmetic box overlaps. Hughes offers custom printed Water Activated Tape (Gum Tape) and pressure sensitive tape, both of which can help to increase brand recognition.
6. Add a label
Despite the fact that labeling is the final step, it is one of the most important. . Double-check the address of the person who will receive the package and attach the label to the top of the box. See our recent blog post, "Adding Life to Your Products with Thermal Transfer Ribbons," for more information on product labeling and labeling materials.
