Printed Gift Card Boxes

Gift card boxes is a very recent trend and a life saver for people who cannot decide what gift to give to others on their special day. These gift card boxes are meant to give someone with a gift card inside it, as the name suggests. The person giving the gift can simply go to any store and buy a gift card for their friend or family on their special day. As a lot of people might feel, giving someone a plain gift card on their birthday seems a little too simple. Considering that every store has gift cards available now, these are becoming an increasingly common sight.

    Gift cards were always trendy

    To add some more appeal to the gift cards, the gift card boxes can be gifted with the cards inside. The best thing about the gift card boxes is that they are discreet and lets the person giving the gift choose any gift card without flaunting it in front of everyone else.
    These gift card boxes are made in a way that they look like boxes that could contain anything like a ring or Jewelry. This aspect of the gift card boxes makes them even more popular in the countries where people give gifts on different occasions. In the countries especially in the north America it is a trend to give small appreciative gifts to the colleagues and coworkers on occasions like, thanksgiving and Christmas.
    Before the gift card boxes were so common and popular, many people would find an envelope laying on their desk waiting for them. After opening the envelope, they would find a small gift card inside. Even coworkers and friends avoided giving out envelopes of gift cards to others in front of everyone. Gift card boxes are the perfect way to give the gift cards to friends without having to wait for the chance to slip an envelope to them.

    Aesthetic value of the boxes

    The gift card boxes are not just the small regular boxes that can be disposed after taking out the gift card. These boxes are shaped and designed with a lot of care and effort from the side of the manufactures. The gift card boxes are special in every sense and they can convey the feelings perfectly. These small boxes are a treat to the eyes specially the way they are decorated with small details in mind. The size of the box is just about close to a ring box but a little bigger than that.
    These boxes are light and designed by Custom Buy Boxes with the idea that they would carry a single card or something similar. There is no limit to the designs in which these boxes are made. There can be any type of decoration on these boxes and you should not be surprised if a person thinks of the box as the actual gift rather than the card inside it.
    There are multiple colors available and a very vast variety of these boxes. The boxes are made with keeping the occasion in mind. It means that for Christmas, there are themed boxes available at Custom Buy Boxes. Same goes for all other themed boxes, which are specially designed for birthdays and other types of celebrations.

    Pricing and availability

    Most of the companies that make these types of boxes for their customers make them in bunches. It means that the production of these boxes by the manufacturing companies is done in bulk. For a small item it does require a lot of designing and material to make it look good. For all the detail and visual work on the boxes increases its value.
    There is special made boxes that can use the magnetic lids and covers. These boxes have more visual appeal but they require more work than regular boxes. The sellers of these boxes usually prefer to sell them in batches to make extra money. Having a number of boxes to be made beforehand is better as there is no guaranteed sale of these boxes.
    These boxes are sold most around the holiday season or when it is some other type of festivals going on. Beside these types of sales, people only buy these boxes whenever they need it which is only few times a year. On the other hand, it is not a perishable item and even it is staying for a long time in the store, it would not create problem for anyone.

    As a business idea

    From the business perspective, just making the gift card boxes, is not very ideal. The reason is simple; people look for something extraordinary while purchasing the boxes but they only need to buy it once or twice in a year. It is a product that is sold during the season and not throughout the year. There can be other incentives that can be added in the box to make them more unique.
    These can be making the boxes into a collectible set which would make enthusiastic people buy more boxes of the same brand. A lot of boxes even more addressing section where the sender can writer their wishes and name for the person, they are buying it.
    This makes this gift more personalized instead of just a decoration piece after opening it. People would know to expect love and feeling when opening the box, rather than just a boring gift card. Although almost no one would buy these boxes in bulk except for the stores and businesses, but they are still something that people often search for online or in store.
