We are very speedily becoming a leading source for stock size die cut boxes that can be custom printed with YOUR name, logo, information, return address, etc. The images included in this post show off two of our most popular products sizes that have been custom printed to make a beautiful and unique look.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Packaging PAPA so we can show you what we can do for you.

We are ready to save our clients time and money if we can avoid manufacturing a cutting die and are ready to use one of the dies we already have on hand. Depending on a number of variables, a new cutting die for a box of this type can cost $500 to $800. What is at times even more notable is that utilising an already made die protects time, in most cases a minimum of one week.
Please keep in mind what we show on our store as our “products” sizes are just a small sampling of what we have available. Not all boxes we’ve made are attractive enough to justify attaching or keeping them in stock. In addition, we also have access to a large inventory of “readymade” dies that we can use for you. As we always recommend, if you don’t see the size you want or require, please ask.
Corrugated boxes that are already made are not “imprinted,” which is actually printing them after they are made. Corrugated board is typically “pre-printed” & then it is cut or converted into boxes. Most people don’t realize ALL custom printed boxes are run “custom” or separate. The second little-known fact is that it is not as difficult as many “product box sellers” often make it sound.

In spite of popular belief, two-colour printing is not a lot more valuable than one colour, so if that is going to make your boxes stand out, go for it. The number of colours, ink coverage and even board weight & standard will make a minor difference, but nothing impacts price like setting up time. As I often tell our clients, “Ink is reasonable, but set time is not.” Set up time is usually a fixed price and it is amortized over the length of the run. The larger the run, the lower the impact of the setup cost. Conversely, the shorter the run, the higher the impact of that same set up required.

The best way to reduce the price is to order more of them. People are often surprised when they discover that they can purchase, for example, 2,000 custom printed packaging boxes for not a whole lot more than, let’s say, 500 of the same packaging boxes.

We can’t tell you how many times we have heard that question, followed by that particular comment. We see people buying plain, unprinted boxes because they believe they don’t have time to custom print them.

Assuming we don’t need to create a cutting die, we can almost guarantee you shipment in 4 to 6 days, and that includes for the making of printing plates. BTW, repeat orders that have plates already made almost always ship in a week.

When you specialize in something like custom-printed products boxes size, you tend to become very good at it, and we are.

Responsive design is another word for mobile friendly. While lots and lots of WordPress themes are now designed to be responsive, not all themes are responsive and you need to be clear on your mobile needs.

Our responsive themes will adapt to browser sizes based on popular devices like Androids, iPhones, and iPads. We code and test each WordPress theme to automatically resize to mobile devices at 240px, 320px, 480px, and 768px. We’ve picked these sizes because they are common devices and because they are what the major WordPress coders utilizes for responsive design testing. Some users will want additional support for lesser used mobile devices and this should be thought through and documented prior to searching for themes.

Before falling in love with any theme, make sure you’ve decided if responsive design is a requirement and if it is, determine what level of responsiveness is needed.

You may think I’m crazy for even bringing this up, but there is a reason.  The “glass half full” kind of girl that I am always thought all themes supported core WordPress features. The truth is that this is an incorrect assumption.

I have an SEO client I am working with right now that has a theme so poorly coded it is killing me. It lacks basic elements like proper spacing, ordered bullets, featured images for posts, commenting, and on and on. The creator of the theme just doesn’t know WordPress as much as he should. I don’t think he intentionally left these items out, but they are in fact missing.

Prior to buying any premium WordPress theme, make sure the theme supports core features like: WordPress menus, widgets, multiple sidebars, featured images, blog page beyond that of the home page, individual posts, author boxes, commenting, 404 page, sitemaps, etc.

While WordPress is SEO friendly by default, not every WordPress theme will adhere to SEO best practices. Clean, optimized theme code is important for achieving the best search engine rankings possible. Quality code and solid design architecture make it much easier for search engines to digest your content and present it to searchers.

WordPress SEO guru Yoast, encourages theme buyers to validate their theme includes the following SEO fundamentals: displayed taxonomy descriptions, excerpts on archive pages, breadcrumbs, proper anchor text for post titles.

Yoast also warns buyers against themes that include: site name forced into title tag, static meta descriptions on pages, static robot tags, use H1 for the logo on every tag, place sidebars above content, hide links in the theme beyond theme creator.

2. Suspendisse feugiat diam quis mi vestibulum blandit

Some of the discussion will be overkill for new WordPress users. The bottom line is you should make sure your theme developer mentions SEO and discusses why their theme is SEO friendly. And if you buy a new theme and simple SEO plugins like All-in-One SEO don’t work, replace the theme because you’ve got way more issues than you realize.

1. Nulla nec euismod dui

Theme support can be available by phone, email, video tutorial, instruction manuals, forums, etc. The theme developer’s workload, sales, and sale price will determine what level of support is offered.

I try an answer all presales questions, but can only do so via email. I do not have the bandwidth to respond via phone.  We also provide instructions for set up in our online forum as well as answer questions from users. We do not provide video tutorials, because well, I hate to watch videos. If you are a brand new WordPress user and you really need videos, then you should consider this and you buying decision.

2. Suspendisse feugiat diam quis mi vestibulum blandit

Another point to note is that some developers offer no support. Themeforest.net sells themes by some coders who have day jobs and they simply don’t have the time to provide forum support. Not only should you pay attention to the availability of forum support, you should also look to see if the forum is answered promptly. In my mind a day is prompt, but a week or month is not. StudioPress won my heart with their forum support. Not only do they answer forum questions, they have WordPress experts like Ron and Andrea on staff to do so.

If you are a brand new to WordPress and expect you’ll need a lot of hand holding, make sure you select a theme developer that offers lots and lots of support features.
