Packaging without tape, stickers, or foil is completely recyclable.

All of our packaging is made with eco-friendly paper and ink, so there are no wrong choices!

In particular, our kraft boxes or kraft packaging sleeves can help provide a more natural aesthetic that may be helpful in showing off the sustainable nature of your products.

Our boxes are very durable, no matter which paper stock you choose. They can be stacked and stored without fear of them getting crushed. To ensure the boxes stay in great condition, we recommend not placing large, heavy objects on top of them.
Of course!

All of our box closure methods are created to keep the box securely closed until it is time for the final customer to open it. For extra security, we recommend choosing a box that includes adhesive to close it permanently.
Please remember that score lines are areas where your packaging sleeve will be folded over your product. We recommend against having key information crossing these lines.

Additionally, we recommend against putting any key information extremely close to the closure area. This way you don’t have to worry about anything getting cut off once the sleeve is secured around your product. You can choose between ¼” and ½” adhesive to be placed on the closure.
