Remarkable Add-Ons For Eyelash Boxes
The add-ons can help you adorn your eyelash boxes with different features that help them to stand out and entice customers. Some of the popular add-ons are listed below;
- Spot UV

Spot UV is also referred to as raised ink because it can raise the material on the specific area where it is applied. The difference between UV coating and spot UV is that spot UV is only applied to your eyelash boxes’ specific area. It can be used to bring the attention of your customers to specific parts of your eyelash boxes.
Embossing can help you add an extra dimension to your eyelash boxes. It creates a raised texture for your artwork, logo, and other design elements. You can employ the use of different dies for different outcomes. For instance, the round dies can help you end up with images that have rounded corners; the flat dies can help you create straight-edges and hard shapes. The beveled dies can allow you to create sloping slides, thus imparting a 3D multi-layer effect.
This is the opposite of embossing and results in the creation of a depressed imprint on the material’s surface. For this process, you have to reverse the female and male dies used in embossing. It can be used in conjunction with printing and foil stamping.
Do you want your customers to be able to take a peek inside your eyelash boxes and see the eyelashes? If yes, then this add-on should be a must for your eyelash boxes. It enables your customers to take a peek inside your eyelash boxes.

Make Sure To Get A Prototype Of Your Eyelash Box
Here’s a situation that you must avoid at all costs; you end up with eyelash boxes, but they all have the same fault. A fault that could have been identified and fixed had you opted for a sample. That’s why GoTo Packaging offers its clients different prototyping options. Our prototyping options include the following;
- 2D Sampling
- 3D Sampling
- Physical Sampling
This is the first prototyping option that GoTo Packaging offers. It entails a 2D image file that shows the die-card along with scoring lines, measurements, and the graphic details that are to be printed onto the eyelash boxes.
If you’re not satisfied with the 2D sampling, we also offer a 3D mock up video of eyelash boxes that will help you check out the edges and angles of them and thus make sure that they are according to the specifications.
Sometimes, it is important to check the actual sample, right? That’s where our physical sampling comes into play. We will ship an actual sample of your eyelash box to your address. You can assemble it and carry out various color tests and even have the product placed in it to make sure that everything is as was discussed with you.
Choosing The Right Printing Technique & Color Model
The printing technique and the color model you use will determine your eyelash boxes’ print quality and can either make your branding campaign successful or a failure. Not every printing technique is suitable for every color model. You also have to keep in mind the material that you’re using for your eyelash boxes. We offer the following printing techniques;
- Digital Printing Technique
- Offset Printing Technique
These printing techniques are also selected based on the order size and turnaround time. For instance, digital printing can be used without requiring any setting up, thus offers quick turnaround times. However, it is suitable for low-volume orders and doesn’t offer a print quality as well as the offset printing technique. On the other hand, the offset printing technique offers the best possible print quality but is only cost-effective for high-volume orders.
The color models that we use are listed below;
- CMYK Color Model
- PMS Color Model
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) color model relies on numbers to denote colors and offers exceptional accuracy when it comes to creating a color. It can recreate the same color shade over different printers not matter how many times you print it. On the other hand, the CMYK color model relies on cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black) to create virtually any color. However, the color accuracy varies over different printers, and it becomes a hassle when you need exact colors every time you print.
