Innovators in Eco-Friendly Packaging and Shipping Supplies

Packaging for Subscription Boxes


When designing subscription boxes, you want something that will both wow the customer from the stoop and keep your curated products protected in transit. Boxes for monthly subscription services should be beautifully designed packages that serve as a little treat for customers, reminding them why they signed up for the service in the first place.


Because you'll be shipping out so many boxes, it's also essential that they're environmentally friendly. The vast majority of subscription services we work with deliver their monthly packages in 100% Recycled Corrugated Shipping Boxes. These aren't just any shipping boxes; they're eco-friendly, custom-printed subscription boxes.
