Wholesale Custom Packaging: How Can Packlane Plus Help Your Biz?

by | Oct 26, 2021 | custom packaging tips, e-commerce insights

As your business grows, so should your packaging strategy. If it doesn’t, you run the risk of losing time, money, and continued growth (…and most likely some sanity, too). 

When it comes to scaling, there are key factors that you need to consider when choosing the best custom packaging, provider, and platform for your needs.

It’s essential to ask yourself the following:

  • How do you plan to scale your packaging alongside your business? Do you need hands-on guidance to help walk you through that? 
  • Are you looking for alternative print methods like flexography or lithography?
  • Does your packaging require extra customization options like inserts, dividers, cut-outs, or any other unique styles that can’t be bought self-service?
  • Would bulk-order packaging with volume discounts benefit your business operationally and financially? 

These are all great places to start – but what happens when you try to scale on your own and find that you need help with the logistics of it all? Instead of trying to navigate the process on your own, Packlane Plus is your go-to.

Whether you need help sourcing custom styles, developing prototypes, managing margins, or facilitating distribution, we’ve got experts ready to help make selecting your wholesale custom packaging easier.

Is it time for wholesale packaging?

Depending on where you are in your ecommerce or retail business, you might be wondering if it’s time to rethink your wholesale custom packaging approach or get started on one altogether. At Packlane, wholesale orders are necessary when you need between 2,000-5,000 units and more.

While having a growing list of orders is always a good thing for a business, without the proper process in place (alongside a system for filling those orders!) the pathway to growth might get a little bumpy. 

If you’re on the fence about whether or not it’s time to go the wholesale custom packaging route, check out this blog post to learn more.

Benefits of wholesale custom packaging

Find that you need thousands of packaging products in each order? 

It makes sense to go with a wholesale order to take advantage of a steep volume discount. With Packlane Plus, there’s the option to customize shippers and mailers (along with void fill) that really compliments your products and makes a good first impression on your customers.

Here are a few questions to consider when getting started with large, wholesale orders:

  • What type of materials work best for your product? With Packlane Plus, you get a single-point of contact and access to packaging experts who are there to collaborate with you every step of the way. Have an idea for your packaging but not sure how to take it from the idea into the hands of your customer? Packlane is ready and able to help you bring those concepts to life.
  • Are you looking for a way to make your large volume orders more sustainable?

Whether you’re already there or want more help in becoming sustainable, Packlane Plus has a range of customizable options that will help you meet those needs.
  • What does your budget look like? Volume discounts are essential for businesses who need thousands of pieces in every order.
