Luxury Foil Stamping: Case Study

Among the many uses and purposes for unique packaging, gifting is one of the most fun for which we like to design.  Organizations come to Sunrise Packaging to help design custom gift boxes for their customers and employees to hold a variety of things. Anniversary gifts, holiday mementos, and more are all common requests. The possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to packaging customization. But one of the most universally popular is luxury foil stamping for setup boxes. 

Inherent Message in Luxury Foil Stamping

Luxury foil stamping is a tactic employed by A/Z Corp for the gift boxes we recently created for them. We started with our custom two piece setup box, a style utilized frequently by tech orgs for cell phones, tablets, and items of high value. Using a style associated with expensive items creates a valuable connection in the mind of the recipient. From the snug fit to the non-telescoping lid, it's a luxurious experience to just open the package.

The box is wrapped in black ultima, upon which the luxury foil stamping is inlaid. In addition to looking clean and classic, it feels clean and classic in the hands of the user.  A/Z Corp falls into the category of "another happy customer" with this stylish addition to our packaging library!

Luxury at Every Price Point

Contact Sunrise to learn more about the other ways we incorporate luxury finishing into projects. We understand how different budgets might make you think that it isn't possible to have the level of luxury you want in a finished product. But there are limitless ways in which we can integrate different high-end elements. Every project is unique, and we're confident in our ability to design the perfect box for your needs. 

 

Box Construction Informed by Style

When people talk about construction, they're usually not talking about box construction. They might talk about cranes. Skyscrapers. Majestic, sweeping bridges, or unmistakeable jackhammers. In light of these admittedly bigger projects (at least physically), we'd like to present something smaller, and more immediate. Box construction isn't something that we take lightly. And it deserves more consideration. 

Hear us out. 

Constructing memorable packaging takes more work than simply folding cardboard. There's the material to consider, and the finishing touches. What will the product be, and how can we mirror or forecast it with the box styling? How can we bring it all together?

Box Construction Styles

As a study in style, let's look at the setup box

You've almost definitely held a setup box in your hand. It's ubiquitous in the technology world, especially for smartphones. You probably remember opening up the box for the last smartphone you purchased. The box was probably small, tailored to the brand (white for Apple, black for Samsung, and so on). As you pulled the top off, it probably resisted a little before begrudgingly sliding off slowly. Your new phone--an expensive but exciting purchase--lay cradled inside. 

Did we get it right?

Setup boxes are evocative and classic. They're constructed in a way that makes them firm and rigid, yet--as you experienced--yielding and personal to the user. 

Packaging & Personality

All packaging must (or at least should) be branded. And with a brand, comes personality. 

As we stated above, the chic blankness of an Apple product is practically iconic at this point. So are the set up boxes they use to house their phones and tablets, with no spared expense to create the perfect stage for their products. When someone opens your product packaging, what personality are they witnessing?

Let your product's box construction do the talking for you. That is, after you talk with our team about this project.
