Your opportunity to impact loyalty and brand perception does not end after a package has been shipped.  

For e-commerce brands, the shipped package represents the most direct touch point with a customer. It’s also one of the most underused marketing opportunities at your disposal. Here at EcoEnclose, we say that first impressions are everything, but you don’t have to take our word for it - a 2016 survey from Dotcom Distribution found that 40% of consumers are likely to make repeat purchases from an online merchant with premium packaging. And a whopping 83 percent of consumers would share an image of a delivery via social media if it arrived in unique, branded packaging.

Done well, packaging makes a significant difference in category dominance, sales growth, brand equity and consumer loyalty. Custom packaging helps to ensure safe product delivery while creating a memorable e-commerce experience for your customers.

Curious how other successful brands are using packaging as a key component of their marketing strategy? Our custom-print clients include industry leaders such as Amy’s, Smartwool, Rocky Mountain Oils, and Fjallraven who are creating beautiful e-commerce experiences for their customers.

Keeping it eco-friendly

As with everything we do, our custom print capabilities help you show Mother Earth some love while delivering a premium packaging experience! We only use soy-based ink on our boxes and water-based ink on our mailers and shopping bags. And, by branding your shipping products, and wowing your customers right away with the delivery and unwrapping experience, you might find that you can cut down on internal packaging material. 

Is custom packaging the right fit for your brand?  

Don’t know anything about custom printing? Don’t worry, we make the process easy. All you need is your product, your desired packaging and your logo in vector format - we’ll take care of the rest.

Is my company too small? Too big?

We get this question a lot and we love that we can serve companies of all shapes, sizes, and missions. For our small (but mighty!) businesses, we can custom print as few as 500 units. Inversely, we’ve even printed single orders for hundreds of thousands of units.

Are my packaging needs too complicated? Too simple?

In our work with more than 10,000 brands, we’ve discovered that sustainable packaging is never one-size-fits-all. From independent artists selling on Etsy to multi-billion dollar industry leaders, we treat everyone with the same level of care.

Is it quick and easy or do I need to deal with (gasp!) salespeople?

So quick. So easy. Most of our clients upload their own art and purchase packaging online in less than five minutes (three minutes for repeat orders). No quoting, no salespeople, no friction. Simply go to the product page for the item you are looking for, select the “custom printed option” and follow the instructions provided. See? That easy.
