Wondering how long your packaging will take to produce? Below we've listed out average timescales. Please note these are subject to the availability of materials and finishes, or at busy times of the year like the run-up to Christmas, it could take slightly longer.

Not sure about some of the packaging terms? No problem, just click them (they're highlighted in green) and they'll take you to an example.

For standard corrugate boxes, it's around 4-5 weeks. If you choose a paper over board box or folding box board it's a bit quicker at 2-3 weeks. Branded tissue paper also takes 2-3 weeks if you want to add extra flair to your unboxing experience.

For letterbox friendly options like mailers, if you're going bespoke it's 2-3 weeks. If you decide to opt for a stock size instead and just looking to have it printed this can be shortened to 1 week.

Before production, it takes around 2-3 business days to set PDF proofs for approval.

If you have a tight deadline you need to meet just give us a call and we'll do our best to accommodate. Similarly, if you're not sure what style of packaging would suit you best and you need some help we're just a phone call away.
