Detailed information on subscription box packaging
Subscription boxes are a growing area of ecommerce, with a huge number of consumers committing to receive a new box of products every week / month.
But in order to fulfil this requirement, your business needs corrugated packaging that exceeds your customers expectations. It is the first physical interaction they have with your brand. It ensures the products arrive undamaged. It can help create an unforgettable unboxing experience.
Ultimately, it can help foster brand loyalty and drive repeat business (not to mention social media mentions and word of mouth recommendations).
As such, your business can source a wide range of cardboard subscription box packaging from GWP.
GWP Packaging subscription boxes
Available in a range of designs – such as pizza style, telescopic or even specialist bottle packs – any subscription box that you source from GWP can also be manufactured to the exact size you require.
This allows for improved protection during transit, but can also allow your boxes to meet specific pricing / sizing guidelines set out by your chosen delivery provider (such as Royal Mail PiP boxes). This in turn can help minimise costs through efficient postage and eliminating returns due to transit damage.
This level of protection can be further enhanced with integral or removal packaging inserts, which can also help to enhance presentation of your items too.
Of course, the appearance of your subscription packaging should not be neglected. So as well as making use of inserts, it is possible to add a range of print effects to the internal or external surfaces (or both) to wow your customer and reinforce your brand message. You can either choose brown (kraft) or white material finishes to better reflect your brand (premium or eco-friendly / natural).
And finally, all subscription box packaging you source from GWP is fully recyclable – meaning easy disposal for your customers besides reducing your own environmental impact too.

Common questions on subscription boxes
The below questions and answers cover the most commonly raised points when looking to source subscription box packaging.
Should I print my subscription boxes?
Whilst it is possible to have plain subscription boxes, doing so is a missed opportunity. Well thought out print will not only help to reinforce your brand message and recollection, but can also help to delight customers when opening your packages.
What size subscription boxes should I use?
The size of subscription box that you use will depend on the size, type and amount of products you are sending to your subscribers. GWP will be able to manufacture a bespoke sized box (or boxes) that will be perfectly tailored to your specific requirements. Alternatively, they can also be produced to meet specific postal guidelines (helping minimise postage costs).
What is unboxing?
Unboxing is the term given to the experience of your customers when they open your packaging for the first time. By adding print and using dividers / fittings to present your products, this can help to wow / delight your customers, and add to the sense of excitement. You may even find your unboxing experience is uploaded to social media and YouTube.
Are cardboard subscription boxes recyclable?
All cardboard subscription boxes supplied by GWP Packaging are fully recyclable (and biodegradable). This makes it easy for your customers to recycle them, and is a very big positive marketing message too.
Will subscription boxes protect my customers’ items in transit?
Whilst it is important that your subscription boxes look the part and provide a striking visual impact for your customers, all of this will be for nothing if the actual products arrive damaged. As such, GWP will be able to manufacture your subscription boxes to the optimum strength required (and include dividers / inserts) to ensure transit damage is eliminated.
Is subscription box packaging supplied flat or assembled?
Subscription box packaging is typically supplied flat, as this reduces transit costs and the storage space required when not in use. However, if you are struggling with fulfilment times, it is possible to have your subscription boxes supplied assembled and ready to pack.
