USA-Made Packaging: Kimberly Handbag

When shopping for packaging, there are plenty of options out there for organizations. For those looking to save big, chances are they're looking overseas for the best deals. But the implications of shipping boxes and custom packaging options from abroad is bigger than just saving a few dollars. That's why we recommend focusing your budget on USA made packaging.

USA made packaging, like what we create at Sunrise Packaging (located in Minnesota), provides many benefits. Our custom options are almost always handmade, meaning that the quality is superior, and personally inspected by our team prior to shipping. But the benefits are even more far-reaching than quality (although that is a great one). 

Why USA Made Packaging Matters

In the video to the side, you can see the care that goes into packing a purse by one of our customers. This kind of care is echoed in our own process, and is displays part of why USA made packaging is an important part of our brand. 

In addition to ensuring that every piece that leaves our warehouse is high quality packaging, here are other benefits that buying American can have: 

  • Keeping jobs in the USA - especially manufacturing jobs
  • Lower carbon footprint - these products have to travel a much smaller distance than something coming from China or India (and it can also reach you much faster as well, and with less pollution)
  • Human rights - weaker environmental regulations in other countries lead to violations and unsafe working conditions

Handmade Packaging

Call it custom, crafted, creative, whatever synonyms come to mind. But handmade packaging is one of our specialties at Sunrise Packaging. Handmade packaging is far from our most economical offering, but for customers that want something that is truly unique with elements that can't be found anywhere else, it's the only option. 

Crafting boxes by hand is something of a revolutionary thought. Or at least it was in the not-so-distant past. But as people are encouraged to stay home more and avoid public spaces and crowds, there's been a crafting renaissance. More and more people are learning how to do more from home (who hasn't seen someone in their feeds making sourdough?). And while packaging hasn't exactly risen to the highest point of popularity, a respect for craftsmanship and knowledge is surely present.

The Magic of Handmade Packaging

We've all experienced the disappointment of packaging that doesn't hold up over time. The corners become dogeared and dented, the colors fade. Maybe even worst of all, the packaging contents become damaged or unusable for some reason. Simply put, the quality that enhances the value in a literal way and for the product itself. 

Viewing packaging as an investment is one way to justify the cost and time. Custom boxes do tend to see a return on that investment, though, by being more stylish and eye-grabbing than the standard box formats. In the example to the side, you can see the custom foam insert, the matte-scuff free lamination, all encapsulated in the magnetic closure box. It's an effect garnered from the sum of the whole. Packaging like this is about creating an experience. And that's part of the magic of handmade packaging.

Bring Your Vision To Reality

Handmade boxes and packaging can be time-intensive. It depends on what elements needs to go into the end product. We're confident in our ability to create unique experiences for consumers, but we need the input and vision of our customers to make sure that we're on the same page. We view these type of projects as partnerships. 

When you're ready to partner up on your next packaging experience, we'll be waiting!
