Everything you need to know about A6 gift boxes, 17mm
Our A6 gift boxes are one of our best sellers. These boxes measure 165l x 116w x 17h mm (internal measurement) and you can purchase them in a choice of three colours; natural brown, black and white. Each box is a three piece set; base, lid and insert. The insert is a foam back with a soft velvet style top, perfect for attaching jewellery to (with the use of jewellery pins). Jewellery pins will keep your items in place so you no longer have to worry about your precious jewellery being loose in the box or necklaces becoming tangled. Your items will arrive pinned and exactly how you want the customer to see them when they open the box.
If you do not wish to use the inserts they can be removed. The finish of these boxes is non-laminated, this means that they have a natural texture and the box (excluding the insert) can be 100% recycled after use.
Can I buy these printed with my business name/logo?
Absolutely! Printed boxes are our specialty! With the ‘unboxing’ phenomenon taking hold of social media, your packaging has never been so important, each customer has the potential to share their purchase with their social media followers and this could ‘go viral’.
By printing your boxes you really tie the final part of purchase into your brand. It is your last chance to make a positive impression with regards to your service. By printing your boxes your customer can see your branding message again and again, or if the item is being purchased as a gift having your boxes printed ensures the end user knows where the item was purchased from and thus where they can buy more.
Good packaging is another sales and marketing opportunity for you. To find out more about our printed gift boxes please use the ‘GET IT PRINTED’ button at the top of the page.
How can I make my gift boxes look more interesting?
Whether you are selling via the internet or in-store your packaging definitely plays a part in the purchasing decision, if you are buying a gift for someone or even for yourself, you want it to look good, right?
The good news is that making your packaging look more attractive does not need to break the bank. Wrapping a piece of ribbon around the box and tying in a bow is a really simple first step. If you sell in a shop then popping the purchase into a lovely rope handle bag filled with shredded tissue paper adds an element of luxury and value to your service, you could even seal the bag with a printed sticker. If you sell online then why not line your outer dispatch box with large sheets of tissue paper, place your filled gift boxes inside, bring the sheets together and seal with a printed sticker. It’s all about creating that excitement for the recipient. If something looks great people will share it; by telling all their friends in person or through sharing photographs online.
If you can post photographs online of how beautifully your products are wrapped, or have an area in your shop to display your gift wrap offering, this can really entice people to purchase.
How strong are the A6 gift boxes? What’s the quality like?
We buy directly from the factory, this means the boxes are made to our high specification. These boxes are very strong and rigid. They are manufactured from 900gsm board and are wrapped in a beautiful (non-laminated) 120gsm paper. We have worked closely with our customers by taking onboard their feedback to continually improve our range.
We ALWAYS quality check the stock when it arrives onsite at our warehouse. Our quality control procedure is stringent. We know your packaging is an investment, that’s why we aim for the best quality and fairest price. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss large/wholesale quantities, we can supply any of our products in bulk at a discounted price (minimum quantities apply).
Please store your boxes somewhere that is dry, cool and out of direct sunlight, this means that the colour will not fade and they will stay in pristine condition.
Are they environmentally friendly?
Our boxes are produced using greyboard which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper and is 100% recyclable. The outer wrap paper is recyclable and where possible the paper is sourced from FSC certified suppliers. Unfortunately the insert is not yet recyclable so we strongly urge you to consider finding these another home (if you do not need them) or, advising your customers to make use of them in a creative way after use.
