Custom packaging is always the best route if you’re aiming for brand recognition – but turnaround can be an issue if you’re in a pinch.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, Turnaround is the time needed to complete a task. This time period includes placing your order, production of items, quality checks and shipment/delivery.
While regular custom packaging can take anywhere from 2 to 4 months to be delivered when placing your order, there are ways to achieve a custom packaging look without having to wait that long.
How to Enhance Your Packaging
Recently, there has been a surge in generic packaging – which makes a lot of sense. With the current global state, there was a major spike in e-commerce, takeout and just deliveries in general, as more people stay home.
With an increase in these orders comes an increase in the need for packaging – businesses need packaging fast at any cost – including having to forgo custom branding.
Naturally, custom packaging would be out of the question in terms of speed – custom can’t compare to generic in terms of deadlines. Generic packaging is readily available in stores to purchase. Many businesses purchased bulk generic packaging to meet unprecedented demands, but were also concerned with customers forgetting their business without the extra branding.
So how do you stay in your client’s mind if you now have a lot of plain packaging in stock? Obviously you would not want to eat the costs of all the generic packaging you have, so what can you do with what you already have?
When people think of custom packaging, they often think of the main packaging components – the bag or box that offers the most protection to the product. But there’s another side of packaging – namely accessories. These bits and pieces add a personal touch and come in handy when you already have stock packaging.
From Design to Delivery in the Blink of an Eye
Our fast turnaround items are perfect for making a statement while adding the personal touch generic packaging always misses. Not only are you able to showcase your brand, you can also share other important information such as:
- contact information
- social media platforms your brand is present on
- company information (motto, ethical promises etc.)
These products are also easy to store (they take up very little space!) and transport so there’s always an opportunity to personalise a package!
The perfect addition to a plain box? Custom paper sleeves that fit snugly onto the component. Make the blank packaging look intentional with a colourful and branded sleeve displaying your company’s logo and any pertinent information you want customers to know about.
Choose from a white or brown Kraft paper base with a simple one colour or full colour print option. Furthermore, add a glossy or matte finish (at no extra cost!) to really stand out.
Even more versatile, choose custom-made stickers in a circular or square shape for maximum impact and uniqueness. Thesefull colour print stickers are made even more beautiful with the option of a foil add-on to attract more attention.
Our stickers are perfect for sealing envelopes, bags and boxes, and anything else you can think of. Our pricing scheme includes glossy or matte lamination, or even an oil finishing depending on what you look you want to achieve!
Printed in CMYK, you can be sure that your design is as vibrant and eye catching as possible!
Need something to pull your packaging together? Want to save your clients the hassle of having to wrap a product for gift-giving? You can’t go wrong with custom ribbons!
We offer two different types of ribbons – silky (a sleek, flat ribbon), and threaded (a more textured ribbon with ridges for more grip). Each roll comes with 90m of ribbon, and you can choose from 3 convenient quantities – 30, 70 or 100 rolls!
Better still, we have 4 standard widths (or choose a custom width!) and an option to add a foil logo. Our ribbons are one of our most popular fast turnaround items as they add the perfect finishing touch.
When it comes to versatility, there’s no better option than business cards. LeKAC offers three main categories of cards – classic, luxury and special materials!
- Classic – made from recyclable materials, these cards are made with 300g cardboard and pricing includes full colour print. If you’re going for a really unique look, add rounded borders or additional options such as spot UV, foil or punched holes. These may be best if you need a high volume of cards at once as they are our most cost-effective option!
- Luxury – our luxury business cards are made with thicker cardboard and have more customisation options. If you’re looking to make an impression and stand out among the stack of business cards clients may already have, these are a great choice!
- Special Materials – these cards are exactly what they’re categorised as! Choose from plastic, cotton, coloured paper and more for that one-of-a-kind look. You’re sure to leave an impression on potential clients with this custom option.
No matter which category you choose, our team can give you additional advice such as shape of the card, lamination and design.
Hangtags aren’t just used for clothing anymore! While that is their primary use, here are 5 other ways to utilise them:
- custom bottle labels
- thank you cards
- product spec sheets
- gift cards/coupons
- holiday decor
Choose between white or brown Kraft paper and use the full colour print included in our pricing to the fullest! You can also add finishes such as spot UV, embossing or foil logos at an additional cost. Last but not least, think outside the box with unique shapes to capture attention!
Thank You Cards
Thank You Cards are always a good idea if you want to show appreciation for your customers. By using different base materials, you can add a special message and even include a discount code for future purchases.
Choose between cardboard of Kraft paper and add any design you want (pricing includes full colour print!). You can achieve any look you’re aiming for – natural and rustic, luxurious or anything in between!
A tried and true favourite. Our clients love the capabilities of tissue paper – it’s a powerful branding tool, improves customer experience, helps protect contents and is eco-friendly!
Our competitive pricing includes a white paper base and repeated one colour logo print, but you can always upgrade to multiple colours in the same design!
Kraft Paper Tape
Kraft paper tape is a fantastic alternative to transparent tape as it is recyclable while still providing instant brand recognition. Custom tape is a subtle way to help your clients identify your package upon delivery and still look natural. Pricing for our custom Kraft tape comes in convenient quantities of 32, 64, or 96 rolls which is ideal for any business size!
Want your client’s to remember you day-to-day? The following options are ideal for just that! LeKAC’s high quality pens come in a variety of structures and colour options to ensure they match perfectly with your brand.
Whether you’re using these at a trade show as favours (when it can safely be done!) or want them for typical office use, you’re sure to get a great reaction from their users. Request additional photos from our custom packaging specialists to see the full range of pens we have available for sale.
Last but not least, we have our mugs! I don’t know about you, but I have an eclectic selection of mugs both at home and in the office – and I’m always happy when someone gifts me a new one! Choose between a black and white mug base and add your logo to make your customers fall in love with you even more. While mugs may not be your typical ‘accessory’, it’s a popular fast turnaround item so larger quantities can be produced when you’re in a pinch – keep this in mind during the holiday season!
