Is there a minimum order quantity for custom cosmetic boxes & packaging?


No, there is no minimum order for custom cosmetic boxes & packaging.  You can order as few boxes as you like. Ordering a few boxes is perfect if you would like a sample to check out before committing to a larger order.  However, due to initial costs involved in setting up a print job, ordering bigger quantities will typically result in a lower per unit cost.  Your account representative can help you find the most efficient solution in order to keep your total project costs low.


How do I measure the length, width, and height of my custom cosmetic boxes?


With the box open toward you, here is how to get the correct measurements for the inside of the box:

The length is measured from the left to right side of the box.
The width is measured from the front to the back side of the box.
The height is measured from the top to the bottom side of the box


Which parts of the custom product boxes can I customize?


All sides of the box are fully customisable — front, back, top, bottom, outside, and inside. The inside can be printed for an additional charge.  You can customize both the outside and inside (even the flaps that tuck away or reside inside the folded box).  Please work with your account representative to discuss any specific requirements.


The proof for my product boxes looks blurry. Will it print that way?


No. The emailed proofs only show how the graphics align on the box.  The final print is much sharper, as long as vector or high-resolution graphics have been used in your design file.  You will be contacted if your graphics appear to be at too low a resolution.  If you have any concerns, please feel free to ask us a question.


What is 4/0 vs. 4/4 when designing custom cosmetic packaging?


4/0 refers to printing full colour on one side of the printed sheet.  This side represents all of the outside panels of the box once finished.  On the other hand, 4/4 refers to printing full colour on both sides of the printed sheet. In this case you can customize all of the outside and inside panels of the boxes.


Can you send me samples of your custom cosmetic boxes & packaging?


We can send samples of our recent print orders.  Please submit a sample request and our sales representative will be in touch so that appropriate product box samples can be sent.


What types of enhancements can I add to my cosmetic boxes to make them unique?


These are some of the unique features that can be incorporated in the design in order to make sure cosmetic packaging unique:

Spot UV Varnish: To call attention to your logo or brand name, an ultra-high gloss finish, Spot UV varnish, can be applied to these areas. This finish is typically applied over a matte or soft-touch laminate to create the desired contrast.

Foil stamping: In order to create a more luxurious look, a shiny foil sheet can be stamped with heat and pressure onto the surface of a card. Foil sheets come in a wide variety of colours and our design team can help you select the desired colour that best fits your design.

Embossing & Debossing: A engraved metal die is used to create a relief imprint on the printed surface. Depending on the direction from which the die is applied, it creates an embossed or debossed imprint on the surface.

  • Foil Stamping: This process involves applying metallic foil, usually gold or silver, to the packaging to create an elegant and luxurious effect. Foil stamping can be used to highlight your logo, brand name, or specific design elements on your cosmetics boxes and packaging.
  • Embossing and Debossing: Embossing raises a design element on the packaging surface while debossing creates a recessed effect. Both techniques add texture and depth to your cosmetics packaging and boxes, enhancing their visual appeal and adding a high-end or premium feel.
