Submitted by: I-Newswire
Los Angeles, CA (OPENPRESS) September 21, 2011 - Replaced with greater demands on manufacturers and increasingly higher costs across the board in China, this looks to be the beginning of the end of an era with many US jobs coming home. But what kind of jobs will we see first? In the packaging world the #1 job creator is a Set Up Box Production line. There is nothing more labor intensive than the making of the Set Up Box and China looks to be running out of steam.
Also known as rigid boxes, Set Up Boxes are the ideal packaging option for high-end products by creating the perfect blend of embellishment and high-performing functionality. Set Up Boxes are all around us, from shoe boxes and game boxes to jewelry packaging and candy. They are elegantly created by hand wrapping various types of paper around a thick paperboard base and a top. Set Up Boxes are non-collapsible and designed to protect your product, while making it stand out to the consumer. By packaging your product in a Set Up Box, you're informing the buyer that your product is well-made and that speaks volumes in marketing. Set-Up Boxes have smooth lines and refined edges that create the perfect canvas for your graphics and are often re-used by the consumer, creating a long-lasting marketing presence.
Yes, Set Up Boxes are more expensive due to the quality of materials and the labor that goes into the production of these custom boxes. While Set Up Boxes may cost a bit more than alternative packaging options, manufacturers save money by not having huge tooling costs and by not worrying about assembling the box on arrival. These boxes come ready to be adorned by your product and widely admired by the consumer.
More and More US manufacturing companies, launching new products or experiencing increasing headaches with Chinese production, are considering locating those packaging jobs here in the US. Companies with high end products that demand a quality presentation are choosing set up boxes as a great way to showcase their wares and create US jobs through domestic packaging production.
