We offer a sample kit which consists of 5 pre-printed boxes - a combination of mailer boxes and folding carton boxes. These are boxes produced with production machines, and is the quality you should expect once your orders are produced. Our sample kit is the best way for you to see the quality of our materials, print, and finishes.
Cost: USD 20.
Refund terms: Fully refundable upon placing an order with PackMojo.
We offer blank, structural samples for you to test the size and structure of the box. If you want to see how your products will fit in the box, this is the best way to do so.
These blank box samples are made using sampling machines, and do not have any print, finishes, or coating on them. Because the purpose of these blank boxes is to test the size/structure, the quality of these boxes are not production-grade. You might find these boxes harder to fold and may see small tears in the paper, but that is normal for structural samples.
We offer print proofs as a way for customers to check the artwork that will be printed on their packaging. These are printed on a standard sheet of white paper, similar to how you would print something at home. With print proofs, you can see whether any adjustments need to be made with your artwork prior to going into mass production (e.g. check the alignment of images, check for spelling errors, etc.).
Note: print proofs are only available for CMYK and excludes white ink and Pantone colors.
Cost: the cost for a structural sample and print proof is USD 40 (and USD 59 for rigid boxes) if you provide us with the dieline. If you would like us to create a structural design (which includes a dieline), the cost will be USD 59.Refund terms:
A Simplified Sample is made with our sampling machine, and the purpose is for visualizing how your packaging would look like in real life. In photos, you can’t tell the difference between this and a production-grade box. However, in person, you’ll notice that the print quality isn’t as sharp, it isn't as sturdy or easily foldable, and there aren’t any additional finishes on it. The purpose of these samples are for you to test the size of the box with your products, and visualize what it would look like with your print.
Cost: USD 59. Simplified Samples are not available for rigid boxes. If you require a printed rigid box sample, you can purchase a pre-production sample (see below).Refund terms:
A pre-production sample is the exact packaging you'll receive when mass produced. This is the final product that's fully printed with finishes, and can also include Pantone colors and add-ons such as embossing and foil stamping.
