The ho-ho-holidays may seem like a long time from now, but for many businesses it’s the perfect time to order seasonal packaging! The great thing about holiday packaging components is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Most companies use the same components and just switch up the designs (unless of course, they bring out new seasonal products)! This allows both businesses and end consumers to remain familiar with the brand while also being festive.
Are you on the fence about holiday packaging and if it’s actually worth it? Read on to see if we can help you make your decision!
Why Use Holiday Packaging?
There are many different types of clients – some are very passionate about holiday packaging, some are against it, and the majority are unsure. When we’re approached about seasonal components and asked for our expertise, we are always for it!
Brands that produce special offerings for the winter holiday season stand to gain customers, recognition and buzz… holiday products and packaging make for great revenue stuffersAmerican Marketing Association
The AMA has it right! Consumers appreciate the extra steps companies and brands take when it’s the holiday season. While packaging in general is a great marketing tool to have in your toolbox, seasonal components really kick it up a notch and fulfils an important need – convenience. By this, we mean that the holidays are a busy and stressful season, and customers are looking for a way to simplify the gifting process.
Other than this major benefit, holiday packaging makes your products look more appealing and help with brand recall without being too repetitive!

Nothing says the holidays like advent calendars! Put a modern twist on a classic tradition with two material options:

When it comes to structures, there are many to choose from! Depending on the amount of numbers you want (i.e. 12 or 24), you can choose a flat or folding structure! If doing a rigid advent calendar, create one that is book-style with a magnetic closure for ultimate gifting.
For folding cartons, our pricing is inclusive of a full colour print and matte or glossy lamination. Add custom inserts for an additional cost to keep those prizes in place! For rigid calendars, pricing includes the same as the folding cartons, but you also benefit from a magnetic closure!
gift card holders
Another popular gifting choice around the holiday season would have to be the gift card. So why not go the extra mile and create a card holder that needs no additional wrapping?
We consider gift cards to be the gift that keeps on giving, and the holder, made from the same materials as the rigid box, is the finishing touch.
These gift card holders come with a folding carton insert to keep your cards in place and pricing includes a full colour print, magnetic closure and a matte or glossy laminated finish.
