There are tons of different modelings of color box packing boxes and gift boxes. Both of them can be customized according to the customer’s request and are of a variety of forms. Generally speaking, the MOQ of the color box is higher, usually starts with 1000, the more quantity, the cheaper the price.

For example, the price of 5,000 and 10,000 will vary greatly. The minimum order quantity of ordinary gift boxes is low(without printing required), gift boxes are more expensive than the color box. The gift box is more exquisite, thicker, can better guarantee the product safety, also can better establish the brand image.

Classification of the inner divider

When there is more than one piece of bone porcelain packed in a box, we need to use the divider to avoid direct contact with the product to ensure safety. Such as bone porcelain tea set, coffee set, Cup and saucer, and so on. The divider is used to separate the different items to ensure that the products will not be damaged.

The commonly used inner divider includes a paper divider and an EPE divider.

The paper divider is the thick cardboard placed directly inside the box, as shown in the below picture.

Pearl Cotton, also known as EPE, its molecular structure is polyethylene.

EPE is very common, it’s the white foam we have seen in many packages, in fact, it also has black. The use of EPE can greatly reduce shock, which can protect the bone porcelain product from damage to the greatest extent.

A lot of buyers go for the EPE. people may find that some of the EPE is very hard, very dense with small pores, in other words, very high density, while some are very soft, loose, big air holes, that is to say, EPE has different densities, high and low, you can choose according to your actual need and budget, as clearly, the high-density EPE would be more expensive, while in most cases, the lower density EPE is enough to meet the requirements of shock absorption.
In general, the price of the paper-based divider is cheaper, while the EPE divider is more expensive.

The package design of the bone porcelain products has the marketing function of establishing brand cognition, that is, the seller needs to present the brand information, establish the brand identification, make the consumer know the brand name and the brand attribute of the commodity, and then establish the brand image.

The attention of the consumer to each product is very short-lived, therefore, we must seize the consumer’s vision from the shelf sweep of the moment. Only packaging can make comprehensive use of color, shape, materials, and other elements while showing the connotation and information of products, brands, and other enterprises, highlighting the common interests of products and consumers, forming a more intuitive impact on consumers.

As an important part of product development, package design is as important as product design. Hopefully, this article will help you to have a clearer understanding of your packaging choices of bone porcelain products.
