Creating custom packaging doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, it's possible to have a seamless custom packaging experience—whether you want to design packaging yourself or you want a package design expert to create your box for you—if you know what to ask for. Read on for four ways to simplify your custom packaging experience.
1. Ability to Design Offline
Designing custom packaging can be a cinch if you choose a packaging company that offers you the option of customizing your box using an online tool or by downloading a PDF of your box type and size and designing it offline in your favorite design program. At Distinct Packaging, if you choose to design offline, simply upload your file to the site when you're finished, and place your order right from there. Those with design experience or who want to design multiple box types and sizes may find offline design the best option. Others with limited design experience or whose want a simple design may find using the online tool ideal.
How to get started: Choose your box type and size at Distinct Packaging and select "Download PDF Templates."
2. Access to Design Services
It's nice to have options, and when it comes to custom packaging, that includes the option to have an expert design your custom packaging for you. Use Distinct Packaging's design service and an expert designer takes the creative elements you provide—everything from your logo to photos or text—and creates a pleasing box design that you get to approve. The end result is a professionally designed box without having to do it yourself. Straightforward pricing and the ability to edit the design are all part of the package.

With custom quotes, all you have to do is pick up the phone or send an email, and a representative from Distinct Packaging will work with you, step-by-step, to make your box a reality, with budget clearly outlined. Using your ideas and provided artwork and direction, package design experts create an elaborate box design just for you. You can provide feedback throughout the process, and once your box is how you want it, ordering is simple and straightforward.
