Knowing These 9 Secrets Will Make Your Cake Boxes Look Amazing:

We always try to update various gadgets to bring ease to our lives. But updating the technology is not the only thing. Have you ever wondered how we could tell anyone about the latest update? We would have to use a packaging box capable enough to represent the item. And hence we have to change its theme or design. But it always comes down to the level of professionalism we can show using our boxes. How do we know which type of box would be perfect for our products? How to customize it and how to represent it?

For any other, it is the easiest to choose a packaging box. Let us take an example. We use rigid boxes for our expensive products. But what about fragile items and cosmetics? If we were to consider cake boxes, then what features should the case hold? If you are curious, then keep reading. In this article, we would be discussing the nine secrets that will make our boxes look marvelous.

Use window packaging boxes:

We cannot possibly use the same box for cakes that we use for other products. We would have to consider the product’s nature and how fragile it is. And in this way, we might choose the best packaging material. There are various packaging materials, but the most favorable one is using a paperboard. We could also use kraft boxes and get them customized to the company’s preferences. But how astonishing it would be to use a box that could showcase the item elegantly. It might seem impossible, but there is a packaging box that also acts as a display box. 

These packages are known as window packaging boxes and are popular among retailers. In this way, you can not only sell your products. But can also showcase the item with these boxes. Other than that, we can also get our custom cake boxes manufactured with a window to enhance the item’s look. And hence the customer could take a sneak peek of the item placed in the box.

Customize with various printing techniques:

If we wish to make our products or boxes look amazing, we would have to customize them. And to do so, we must use the latest technology and new ideas. We cannot possibly imprint a box with useless information. We would have to carefully print the requisite data on the box. And we would have to make sure that our brand logo gets imprinted on the most visible side. If we wish to sell a product, then representing our trademark is a vital thing. Otherwise, clients could think that the item must be fake and think of it as a waste of money to buy the product.

Some of the printing methods of our cake boxes are:

  • Flexography,
  • Engraving,
  • Embossing,
  • Digital printing,
  • Screen printing,
  • Gravure,
  • 3D printing,
  • LED UV, etc.

Customize with engraving and Embossing:

Engraving is a method that highlights any design or logo. It is getting used and is popular among various luxurious brands. And if a person starts a new business or launches a new product, the easiest way to highlight the brand is to customize the logo with engraving. In this process, we carve in our design and fill the facade with metalized foils. The silver, aluminum, and gold foil give a luxurious, shiny yet elegant look to the box. And make it appear expensive.

On the other hand, embossing is the opposite process. This method is getting used to giving a 3D look to our selected design or our trademark. It makes the design pop out of the surface. And we can customize it with foils or pigments.

Use lamination:

By using lamination, we secure our box from any harm, dust, or pollution. And hence we could represent the item professionally.

Use elegant and sophisticated color:

Using the right color palette never fails in making our cake packages appear elegant and charming.

Imprint company’s logo and slogan on the box:

Without the brand logo, our product would look fake and unpromising. And hence make sure that you imprint it on the visible side of the box.

Hire designers:

No matter how experienced and talented we are in a field, we cannot master everything. We would have to hire people to carry out a specific job, and in this way, we could deliver the best product to our clients. And the same goes for the branding of our packaging boxes. If we wish to make them look extraordinary, then hiring a designer is the best option. The professionals know the latest trends and how to compose ideas into a design.

Consider the box’s dimensions:

We could not possibly secure our product by using a bigger packaging box. In this way, our product would move all around the box and can get affected readily. Use a moderately sized box where we could easily place and can take out the product.

Use organic packaging material: 

Products always require extra protection, and that is the only way to impress our clients. Non-organic packaging boxes often contain harmful chemicals that could make the product go bad. And in this way, we could lose our customers. Imagine ordering an item on our special day and receiving an awful one. Now, there is good news that we could avoid this situation by using an organic box. And we can also pick between various organic packaging materials. In this way, we could choose the flexible and firm material for our cake boxes.
