The Big Reveal: Clever Designs That are Inside the Box

We try to avoid using the phrase "inside the box" at all costs, but this time it's literal. In e-commerce, the inside of your box has as much star power as the outside. With a design that continues to the interior of your box, your product pops and your box makes a great backdrop for social shares. Here are 7 brands with memorable strategies for interior box designs.


Thrive's Green Logo Pattern

Customers love photographing their Thrive haul inside the box, no doubt because that signature green is a fresh backdrop for their organic goodies. Since Thrive sells many brand names, lining their box with a logo pattern and pop of green is pivotal for their online brand recognition.

Fab Fit Fun's Pop of Yellow

There's nothing quite like a color reveal. Complimenting the exterior of the box with a totally new interior color adds some extra wiz-bang-pop to Fab Fit Fun's summer design and makes for prime Instagram photos.

Le Parcel's Words of Encouragement

Once a month, ladies get this box of necessities when they need it most. The copy inside the box taps into that, bringing more character the subscription service and hopefully making customers feel a bit at ease. The chocolate helps too.

Hippo & Crate's VIP Treatment

One of the best ways to grow a new community is to make your first-time customers feel like they're part of something special. A handwritten name goes a long way, and it really complements the cheeky copy on the products inside.

Glossier's box approach is all about the interior. The exterior is unprinted and sealed with a strip of custom poly tape, while the interior is printed with a glossy design and the mantra that their tribe of followers know oh-too well. Whether you're a first-time customer or die-hard fan, it's a pleasant surprise every time.

Sun Basket's Friendly Reminder

 The Big Reveal: Clever Designs That are Inside the Box

Reminding your customers to recycle is good practice, but when a pillar of your brand is being earth-friendly, it's always great to put it front and center. Or to the left, on a handy dandy flap. (P.S. Don't forget your flaps! They're under-utilized part of many dielines, and they're actually part of the exterior side of your box design.)
