Guide to Custom Packaging in China

Here’s an article for brands and entrepreneurs planning to optimize their budget for custom packaging without comprising the quality. 

You might have heard that custom packaging in China is the best affordable choice for companies in the west. But, the process of finding a reputed manufacturer will be tiring.

You may know this already, but I’ll give an introduction to different types of product packaging materials for the new-comers. 

Packaging material options vary according to the niche.

Each packaging manufacturing company in China focuses on a specific material.

That’s why you should work with a trusted supplier who can source any material of your preference.

According to Google, these are the most searched keywords in this niche.

  • China Paper Packaging
  • China Corrugated Box Manufacturers
  • Tin Box China
  • Plastic Packaging in China
  • China Wooden Packing
  • Specialty Packaging in China
  • China Custom Rigid Boxes

Most of these companies have a dedicated product designer in-house.

Note: Make sure you label the packaging according to the regulations. Labeling rules and requirements vary according to each country. 

Minimum Order Quantity

Keep in mind that most packaging companies in China generally prefer MOQs above 2000.

The idea of MOQ can vary according to the niche also. It’s best to discuss with the company itself to get a clear picture.
