Mistakes to Avoid when Printing Cosmetic Boxes Wholesale

by Angela John Content Writer

For small and newbie cosmetic businesses, getting quality product packaging within a limited budget can turn out to be a puzzling endeavor. While there are a number of online printing companies which have made it quite convenient to place an order without having to go to a printer. Choosing the right service provider and not compromising on design, stock, and other details are still very tricky. Most of the cosmetic retailers prefer getting bulk product packaging printed as it saves them money and hassle. This really is a good idea to save up and stock your packaging but there are a few elements that you need to consider and mistakes that one shouldn’t make. Every new printer you come across will lure you with claims of really low prices, be vigilant to compare the pricing for wholesale printing so that you get value for money.

Don’t Choose Poor Quality Stock for Custom Cosmetic Boxes

Being in the business of cosmetics, you will have to get your product packaging printed on a regular basis. Get yourself well-acquainted with different kinds of printing materials and their features. This will be very beneficial for you in the long run. While choosing the material for your cosmetic box packaging, ask the printer questions. If you are choosing cardboard, what is the thickness of the material, if you want die-cut style, will it support it? You will be able to get satisfactory and truthful answers only if you know the basics of various materials that are used in printing.

Ask for Cosmetic Boxes that can be Shipped Flat

Getting your cosmetic packaging in bulk will work only if you get the boxes shipped in a shape that can be assembled and stocked up easily. Tell your printer about what kind of packaging style you need and if these boxes can be shipped without getting their shape and texture affected. Ask for options that are easy to assemble and won’t be affected during shipping. Wholesale printers often don’t tell their clients about the handling issues and this can result in your product packaging getting scratched or defected before you use it. So make sure you get your concerns addressed before placing an order.

Don’t Fall for Untrue Claims and Promises

If you have a product launch, share your deadline with the printer for wholesale product packaging. Many printers will make claims of same day printing but that will never happen. So make sure you share a realistic deadline with a dependable service provider and get your custom cosmetic packaging boxes printed according to your timeline. Read the privacy policy of a printer about shipping time in detail to know-how many days a printer will take to get your product boxes printed and delivered.

Get a Sample Printed and Approved for your Cosmetic Box Packaging

No matter how trustworthy your printer is, if you are placing an order for 200 and plus packaging boxes, ask for a sample before ordering the bulk quantity. This will give you an idea about the artwork, material finishing and other concerns like misprints. Ask the printer to send additional quantity, in case a few boxes are slightly scratched or defected.

A professional printer will always check the quality of printed items and is likely to send you extra packaging boxes without asking for them.
