How to Personalize Your Curated Coffee Experience
Package your coffee in a mailer box built for containing items of different sizes. You can quickly assemble the box with no adhesive as it arrives with scores to show where to fold and close the flaps for its final form. Our online calculator lets you indicate the exact interior length, width, and depth of your coffee bags and other items required. The 3D image on the product page will update to show its approximate size and appearance. Once you've settled on the size, you can customize the rest of your subscription box packaging with these details:
Represent your brand in a subtle but impactful manner.
Your box is the customer's first point of interaction with your brand. Make sure there are details like your centered logo or company name that they can see to identify the package on the doorstep. From there, they'll be able to recall it or associate the visual elements highlighted when seen in passing. Go for a minimalist approach like putting your logo on a white background, along with a fun message about grabbing their first cup of coffee.
Guide the customer to start and prepare the coffee through the box's presentation.
You don't have a café or a physical space where your customers could experience your brew fully. To recreate that atmosphere, you’ll have to make your coffee subscription packaging as exciting and interactive as possible. If you have a short greeting on the front, continue the message inside the lid. From here, you can list descriptions of each roast or begin with a light introduction on the flavor notes.
For the coffee itself, you can add inserts to organize the pouches and present them such that customers immediately see what they ordered. These inserts can also protect the edges and keep the beans or grounds intact during delivery.
Include helpful tips on postcards or brochures if they need more information.
Print brochures or postcards that offer more information they may need, like proper storage conditions or preparation instructions. Having a separate copy on hand lets them keep and display the information on their fridge for easy reference.
Show your gratitude with a free sample or discount voucher they won't expect in the package.
Surprise your customers with a free sample of a new blend or an exclusive discount voucher they can use on your site. The freebies will make them feel special and give them a reason to purchase another box if it's their first time. Be sure to add a personalized message, like “thanks for your subscription.”
Use our 3D online design tool to complete the subscription box's design.
You don't need a separate editing program and build your design from scratch. Head over to our online design tool, and you can add elements on the outer sides of your box. The tool shows its appearance as you update the look in real time. After completing the exterior look, you can continue to design the interior, and the 3D design tool will show the finished product.
