The Brandable Box Team
Who we are
Our team is dedicated to helping businesses, big or small, get access to custom packaging easily and affordably. Your business is more than just your product. Each touchpoint you have with your customer is an extension of your brand — that includes your shipping boxes. We can help you create boxes that will impress your customers from the very start.
One of our products is only focused on five standard box sizes and a simple logo upload to help businesses get started on branded shipping boxes. In less than five effortless steps, you'll be able to order your boxes. Skip the complicated parts of packaging. The best part? You don't have to sacrifice quality or cost to get our shipping boxes.
Brandable Box is backed by Pratt Industries — America's 5th largest corrugated packaging company and the world's largest, privately-held 100% recycled paper and packaging company. Pratt's customers include Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Public Storage, USPS and many other household names. Please contact us if you have any questions (email@example.com).
