Cary’s of Oregon – Making Custom Printed Branded Green Packaging Effective

Cary's of Oregon, 2 colors on KraftWe have helped a wide variety of companies create custom printed, ecofriendly packaging for shipping and displaying their products. Some take the minimalist route and are graduates of the “less is more” school of packaging design. Their preference is to work with minimal ink, subtle colors and designs that are often described as simple and clean.

Others customers prefer to use bright, bold colors and very unusual patterns to tell their story. The nice people at Cary’s of Oregon fall into this second category, utilizing a design that is absolutely and most definitely unique. It more than accomplishes the objective we always target which is: packaging that creates a positive and memorable first impression.

Sweet Product Deserves Sweet Packaging!

If you have not had the pleasure of tasting their delicious toffee, you really should. We have enjoyed it in our office (every job has its perks) and it quickly became a favorite and sought-after treat.  Check out their web site and store at where you will see all seven unique flavors. My personal favorite is Milk Chocolate with Toasted Almonds but my wife prefers Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts. No matter which flavor you choose, you will be impressed by the flavor and quality of the product, as well as the custom printed Globe Guard® die cut mailer boxes they selected for use.

Globe Guard® boxes are made of 100% recycled content, are 100% recyclable as well as 100% biodegradable, compostable and repulpable. In addition, they can be custom printed any way you want, with 100% water based inks.

This makes them ideal for a product as natural as Cary’s toffee, manufactured in one of the most beautiful parts of our country.

Other Examples of Extraordinary Packaging

Two other customers who also decided “more is more” with unusual designs that make an unforgettable lasting impression:

Green Kid Crafts, 2 colors on

One of our oldest and dearest subscription commerce customers recently gave their already attractive box a total and somewhat wild face lift. What appears to be random doodling is actually a well thought out design with many “hidden” objects, making the box itself an adventure.

WataNut, 2 colors on white

You will likely lose count attempting to tally all the different nuts shown on their box, but you can’t go wrong with the delicious nuts that are inside. The packaging is very attractive and unique and the product makes a great gift either on a one time basis or an ongoing subscription basis.
