Empty gift boxes are great for presenting jewelry purchases in. Find out different types of gift box packaging available for designers.
Gift box packaging comes in two basic forms, set up gift boxes, and cardboard jewelry gift boxes.
Set up gift boxes are usually made of heavy cardstock and come to you folded flat. What you do is pop them into shape, and fold in the top and bottom of the box. They come in a variety of finishes, with natural brown kraft and glossy white as the most common. They also, with additional cost, are available in specialty colors and finishes, such as metallics, and pearl finishes.
These tend to be the least expensive. They also look it too. One way to liven up the appearance is to use some ribbon to finish off the packaging, or a strip of nice paper and seal it off with a sticker that has your company name or logo on it.
Gift boxes made from cardboard are usually covered in paper fabric, or foil. They come in a variety of sizes and colors to suit your branding needs. These boxes also usually feature some sort of stuff or padding to keep the contents protected and safe.
These boxes tend to cost more, and you will usually have to buy them by the case of 100 to get a decent price. But if you are just starting out, you may want to consider sourcing these from Ebay. There are a number of sellers that sell small quantities of these gift boxes, and they may be a better option for your home business.
A simple, small ribbon or some colorful string is usually all you need to finish off these boxes.
