cardboard boxes and packaging supplies

You wouldn’t try to fit a round peg into a square hole, just as you shouldn’t send packages that aren’t properly packed. The good news is that custom inserts offer a cost-effective and efficient way to keep your products safe as they ship out to your customers. Discover the advantages of custom packaging inserts that are right for you in 2020.

What Are The Advantages Of Custom Inserts?

Custom inserts are built to fill voids in boxes. Like bubble wrap, paper, or foam packaging, custom inserts offer the following advantages:

  • They reduce packaging time which lowers labor costs.
  • They help to keep customers happy by ensuring that products arrive safely.
  • They reduce shipping weights and effectively lower shipping costs.
  • They can be customized to promote brand awareness.

Lightweight, easy to install, durable, and custom inserts include:

  • Corrugated sheets and made from environmentally friendly materials are great choices to block, brace, and fill packaging voids.
  • Corner pads can be used to keep items stable and secure throughout transport.
  • Scored Pads (S-Pads) can fit into virtually any space or dimension to firmly hold everything in place.
  • Dividers are used to create separate storage compartments within your larger boxes.

As you can see from the above list, custom inserts come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, designs, and colors, which is one of the reasons that Flexographic printing is often used to enhance the customization process.
