Why Summer is the Season for Holiday Packaging

All Posts

You just put the air conditioner back in the window. The smell of fresh-cut grass and chimes of ice cream trucks begin to fill the air. The Fourth of July is around the corner and you still have months of warm weather and outdoor recreation to look forward too. Why spoil all that by thinking about the Holidays?

Well, not to be dramatic, but you’re running out of time.

If you have a Holiday packaging project in your pipeline, now is the time to get the ball rolling.

Recently, our clients at Caspari returned to Taylor for their annual Holiday Box. Our factory has been buzzing with iconic Caspari red as we cut cover material, decorate with foil stamping, and assemble the boxes.

Caspari knows that summer is the best time to order packaging for their Holiday offerings. But why should your brand do the same?

Here are a few reasons why you should order your Holiday packaging this summer

1) Lower Order Volumes

You won’t be the only one in need of a Holiday box this winter. Packaging manufacturers are usually up to their eyeballs in orders once the Holidays come around, and placing your packaging order (or at least beginning the design process) now can save you headaches in the long run.

You want your order to arrive before Christmas, right? Compared to the winter months, manufacturers typically experience a lower volume of orders coming through the factory in the summer season.

2) Manageable Lead Times

Here’s the thing about custom packaging; it varies drastically from project to project. Whether you have an ambitious idea or hardly any idea at all, collaborating with our expert packaging designers is the first step in bringing your concepts to completion.

But with samples, revisions, options, and approvals, the design process can be time-consuming. Packaging design is a process, but it’s much more manageable in July than it will be at the end of November.

3) Better Weather

We operate on the coast of New England and it’s not uncommon for us to receive major snowfall before the Christmas holiday. The last thing you want is a project that’s been running smoothly to be halted by an unexpected blizzard.

Historically, there aren’t too many snow storms in Rhode Island between the months of June and September, so take advantage of the pleasant weather while it lasts!

Now is the ideal time to start your Holiday packaging project. With optimum conditions for order volume, lead times, and even weather, summer is your best bet to get your Holiday Boxes down the chimney on time.

Need custom boxes for the Holidays? It’s not too late to get started!
