Direct-Print Shipping Boxes from Custom Boxes Now

What are Direct Print Boxes?

Direct-print boxes provide a fantastic marketing opportunity to share your story and leave a lasting impression on customers. Read on to discover how direct-to-box printing can enhance your brand and improve your shipping solutions.

What Is Direct Printing?

Direct printing involves printing an image, logo or message directly onto a corrugated box. This highly common box printing process is known for being quick and effective, with an impressive level of print quality. Direct-to-box printing can be accomplished using a variety of printing methods, which we will explore below. Custom Boxes Now offers a variety of in-house printing capabilities to accomplish the perfect customized box for any brand. Our ability to print directly on a box leads to several benefits, including:

  • A full-color spectrum for maximum customization and flexibility.
  • Quick production speed and enhanced efficiency.
  • Consistent quality.
  • Enhanced brand awareness with every box your company ships.

Our Direct-Printing Capabilities

Flexo printing involves creating printing plates with digital artwork and applying the print directly to the box. Flexographic is commonly used for creating custom printed boxes with images ranging from basic logos to advanced artwork. We produce our own printing plates in-house to cut down on your cost, produce results quickly and manage large orders in no time.

Ideal for short runs and prototypes, digital printing applies ink directly to the corrugated cardboard without using a printing plate. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, our digital approach can achieve custom printing quickly while retaining high quality. We also provide litho laminating, a process that involves transferring printed artwork from paper and applying it to the corrugated board. This style is not a direct-print box method but does provide an option for clients who need photo-realistic designs.
