Do you create mock-ups?
Yes. We produce mock-ups for folding cartons.
How much does it cost for mock-ups?
The first step is the creation of the engineered package. If you do not have that, we will create it for you. In most cases, engineering fees are credited to your account upon placing a print order. Prototypes are built for marketing and other divisions to examine a final product before going into production. Typically there are revisions. Budget at least $1000.
Do you create perfume bottles? Do you create shampoo & skin care mock-ups? Do you produce perfume?
No. We do not design or produce perfume bottles or manufacture perfumes. We recommend you visit the cosmeticindex.com for more resources. We can create labels to place on existing 'blank' bottles you may have already sourced.
We have a new Nutriceutical product. Can you take my raw material and package it for me?
No. We do not work with raw materials. We will take the product in it's primary package to integrate with secondary packaging we create. At that point we can produce packaging, inserts, and other materials, put all the pieces together, and then provide shipping, warehousing, and inventory management. We can even fulfill ecommerce orders for you.
What kind of boxes do you make?
We produce folding cartons, blister cards and counter displays on a number of substrates. All work is designed to optimize overall fill, ship, and retail display needs. Because our clients have products in virtually every distribution channel, we know what to design for your marketplace.
Do you provide stock boxes?
No, everything we produce is custom made in our facilities. There are other companies that can provide white cartons in stock sizes. What we offer is packaging that is custom made to market your products exclusively.
Can you create a sample of a free-standing display?
Yes, with our large format printing capability, we can produce 1-100 corrugated displays with print overlay.
What is your minimum order quantity?
We do not have a minimum order quantity but because everything is custom made the set up costs become a greater portion of the total cost if quantities are small. Therefore, it probably makes sense to consider a "stock box" for quantities under 3,000.
How long does it take for a quote? Samples? To produce and order? To ship?

We are ISO9002 and have a clean room that enables us to economically package a wide variety of pharmaceutical and medical device products.
