What Is a Coffee Box?
Coffee beans as a product are dry and require packaging that helps them remain dry until they are used by consumers to create that exceptional coffee pot. A coffee box is the packaging used to store the coffee and allows the coffee manufacturers to ship the coffee to the end-consumer. Coffee boxes must not only be crafted from high-quality material but must also be able to withstand wear and tear while offering resistance against moisture.

Benefits Of Using Custom Coffee Boxes
GoTo Packaging understands that the conventional coffee box packaging is just not good enough anymore if a coffee manufacturer wants to stand out from the crowd of competitors. That is why we offer custom coffee boxes to our clients. There’s plenty of benefits that you can enjoy when you opt for custom coffee boxes. Some of the benefits are given below;
Promoting Your Business
Custom coffee boxes allow coffee manufacturers to effectively carry out their business promotion via their packaging. With the ability to have custom printed coffee boxes made, the possibilities are limitless. Not only can you get your logo printed onto the coffee box, but it can also feature your brand’s color scheme and other relevant information that can help you promote your business.
Designed For Customers
Instead of providing your coffee products to your customers in the plain old coffee boxes, you can have them designed based on what your target audience demands. The custom coffee boxes are designed based on your needs and offer your coffee products’ required level of protection. Furthermore, with these custom coffee boxes, you are making sure that your customers enjoy interacting with your coffee boxes, thus helping with brand strengthening.
Custom Sizes & Styles
Custom coffee boxes allow you to get coffee boxes made in all sizes and shapes, completely based on your needs. Do you need a large box for your jumbo coffee pack, or do you want a smaller than the conventional box for your smaller coffee sachets? Either way, with custom coffee boxes, we’ve got you covered!
Offering Technical details
Is there any technical information that you wish to give to your customers? Maybe it’s about the best way to brew the coffee, or maybe you want them to know about how you source your coffee? You might want to let them know about the ingredients used and the expiry date, right? Custom coffee boxes allow you to print technical details onto them.
Selecting Material For Your Coffee Boxes
The selection of material for your coffee boxes is an important decision and must not be taken lightly. When you reach out to GoTo Packaging, our packaging experts will help you choose the most optimal material for you based on your requirements. Commonly used materials for coffee boxes include the following;
- Card Stock Material
- Eco-Friendly Kraft Material
- Corrugated Material
- Rigid Material
This material is lighter than paperboards but is durable and heavier than standard writing material. The card stock material allows you to enjoy high-quality color results and is great if you want custom designs printed on your coffee boxes.
With the eco-friendly kraft material, not only are you providing your coffee products safe and secure packaging but are also minimizing your business’s carbon footprint. It also offers protection against moisture, thus making sure that your coffee products remain fresh.
This is the most sturdy and durable material that you can use for your coffee boxes. However, you must make sure that you are opting for the right kind of flute size based on your requirements.
Do you want your coffee boxes to appear as a high-end product with a premium look and feel? If yes, then rigid material is the right choice for your business.
Let’s Customize Your Coffee Boxes!
GoTo Packaging offers add-ons to improve your coffee boxes’ visibility while enhancing the perceived value of the coffee products encased in it. You can achieve various desired results using add-ons. If you truly want to enjoy a custom coffee box, then you must consider incorporating add-ons into your coffee boxes. Some of the trending add-ons include the following;
- Window Patching
- Embossing and Debossing
- Spot UV
We employ the use of die-cutting and PVC windows under the banner of window patching. This is the add-on if you want to allow your customers to take a peek inside the box without having to open it and catch a glimpse of your coffee products.
Embossing & Debossing
Embossing and debossing are used to impart specific textures to your coffee boxes. Embossing can help you create a raised texture for your logo, text, or any other artwork. Whereas, debossing enables you to leave a depressed imprint onto the coffee boxes. They are considered a great option because they add an extra dimension to your coffee boxes.
Also known as hot stamping, this add-on enables you to achieve a distinctive look for your coffee boxes, thus enticing more customers. Some kinds of foiling include holographic, metallic, gloss, and various other special effects.
This particular add-on is also called the raised ink technique and is basically a kind of UV coating. Unlike UV coating, though, it is only applied to a specific area of the coffee box. You can not only seal the color but also impart a sheen to the packaging. The resulting coffee box packaging will resist moisture while forming textures on the surface.
Sampling Of Coffee Boxes Before Ordering In Bulk
Here’s a scenario for you to consider; you get in touch with a packaging expert and place your order for 500 custom coffee boxes. Once you receive the order, you realize that the boxes have a flaw and won’t close properly because of a measurement error. The end result? You have 500 custom coffee boxes that are of no use to your business. How do you avoid such an incident?
GoTo Packaging offers sampling/prototyping options to its clients, thus avoiding such situations. We believe in creating win-win scenarios. Our sampling options include the following;
- 2D Sampling
- 3D Sampling
- Physical Sampling
This is the first and most basic kind of sampling option that we offer. It involves a 2D image file of the die-card and shows you the measurements and scorings.
We understand that 2D sampling might not prove to be enough for you. Don’t worry; our next sampling option is that of 3D sampling. This option will get you a mock-up video of your custom coffee boxes, and you’ll be able to check out the edges and angles of the box. It will also give you an idea of what the finished product will look like. This is considered good enough most of the time.
The final and ultimate sampling option that we offer is known as physical sampling. We will ship an actual sample of your custom coffee box for you to check out thoroughly. Once you’re satisfied with the custom coffee box, we will move towards your order’s mass production.
Color Models & What They Mean!
The packaging industry is currently using two different kinds of color models;
The Pantone Matching System is the standardized color matching system. It uses numbers for coding colors and offers the highest possible accuracy while carrying out color identification and quality control.
CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). This color model enables us to create any kind of color. The con of this color model is that it relies on the ‘dot approach,’ and the print quality is not the best possible print quality.
