Step 1: Choose your boxes

The first step to getting your personalised printed packaging is choosing the boxes you want to print on.

We offer our digital printing service on several different shapes and sizes of cardboard boxes:

Double Wall Boxes
Single Wall Boxes
Letter Box Boxes
Book Mailers
Postal Boxes

All the above boxes come in a range of sizes and quantities, so you can find exactly the right size and shape for your goods. Printing is available on all of these, no matter the size or how many you order.

Once you’ve had a look through the different box options and selected the size and quantity you need, add them to your cart.

Step 2: Checkout

Once you’ve added all the boxes you want to be printed to your cart, purchase them through our easy online checkout system.

If you’re purchasing boxes for printing alongside plain boxes, don’t worry! In the following steps, we’ll show you how to specify which items you’d like printed and which we should leave as they are.

Step 3: Send us your artwork

Once your order is complete, you’ll receive an email confirming your purchase alongside an order number. Now it’s time to confirm the artwork you want to print on your boxes!

To do this, simply email with:

Your order number
The box type and size for printing
The quantity of boxes you’d like printed
An attachment showing the artwork you’d like printed. This can be any of the following formats:
o Vector file (.eps)
o Photoshop file (.psd)
o Illustrator file (.ai)
o High-resolution PDF (.pdf)

If there are different designs you’d like printed on various boxes, simply title each artwork attachment with the box code you’d like it printed on (for example, ASCW120907/D1).

Step 4: Approve your artwork

To make sure your boxes appear precisely how you want them, we'll email you an image of how they'll look once the digital printing is complete. This allows you to make any alterations if you'd like them to look differently. 

If you're happy with the design, you can give it the final sign-off.

Once finalised, you can sit back while our digital printing equipment does its magic!
