Part of the fun of the packaging business is getting to know a variety of industries. From key fob packaging to software FlashPads, there's always something new and exciting being created. It even extends into the realm of political action, as is the case with cannabis kits.
As of January 1, 2018, cannabis or marijuana is legal in California (with some regulations, of course). HauteSmokes is a startup specializing in smoking accessories for the sophisticated smoker. We designed packaging that complements their take on the glamour and the *je ne sais quoi* of the industry.
Cannabis Kits That Exude Glamour & Sophistication
As with any product that requires packaging promotion, we started with the basics. How can we help them promote their business and give their customers a treat to open?
As stated above, HauteSmokes cannabis kits are all about creating a kind of old-Hollywood feel while staying relevant in the modern age that is marijuana legalization. As more and more states move toward legalization, their market is sure to grow. For California alone, experts estimate that legalization will have nearly a $5 billion impact. And Forbes estimates that the industry will create more jobs than manufacturing by 2020!
So when it comes to creating custom packaging that not only meets their current needs, but the potential growth as well, we knew it had to be something innovative, sophisticated, yet somewhat reminiscent of old time glamour.
Sunrise Packaging started with a magnetic box, or the MagBox, for that element of modernism. Magnet closures are satisfying and delightful for users. They're also perfect for protection for these delicate pieces - no accidental opening for these packages in transit!
For decoration, the magnetic boxes were wrapped with black ultima. This custom box wrap has a slight gloss, and is smooth to the touch. The gold foil stamping on the box seals the deal. Gold on black is a standard of Art Deco style, the roaring 20's, and old-time Hollywood. Custom box design can be full of references, and we love bringing these elements together for creative projects.
