Design can be a lonely business, especially when you’re trying to create the perfect packaging.

Custom Orders and Help When You Need it
While Distinct Packaging is engineered to transform your design into a ready-to-go box quickly and easily without fuss, help is always there if you need it.
“When we started this, we thought that nearly all of our orders would be entirely self-service thanks to the ease with which you can create your custom packaging using our online tool,” says Dwight Blaha, who co-founded the company with Randy Barron. “But what we’re finding is that there are a whole lot of people who want to ensure they can discuss their project before placing their order, so we make sure we’re very accessible by phone, chat and email to help people.”
Though Distinct Packaging offers money- and time-saving features across 11 different package types, you are really only limited by your imagination. They pride themselves on going above and beyond for their customers, offering color matching, custom inserts, and one-on-one consultations to help you choose the right box, or to place a special order. It is that extra-mile service that distinguishes them from other online custom-packaging providers.
“We understand that it’s more than just a box,” Blaha explains. “This is a package that people are putting their brand into, so we help to develop the best solution that we can. Whether it’s online or offline, we’re here to help people through the process.”
When Blaha and Barron created Distinct Packaging last year, their goal was to put the power of custom or branded packaging into the hands of anyone who needs it, with a focus on small businesses and creative entrepreneurs. And in that time they’ve seen first-hand how powerful that can be.
It’s the personal stories of getting packaging right for customers that stick with Blaha. He recalls working with an author who was self-publishing a book and needed a custom box that would stand up to the rigors of shipping, while also showcasing both the book and his brand.
“We helped design a box that would protect the corners of the book during shipment but also place his brand front and center. So people who ordered got this great-looking box, and inside was this book that he’d put himself into. It really added to the experience, both for him and his readers.”
Details matter at Distinct Packaging, whether it’s ensuring the gold-stamping on an event favor box is just right for a perfectionist wedding planner, or creating a die-cut box that exactly fits and showcases a product. No matter the need, they pride themselves on their rapid response and creative solutions to customer questions and packaging needs.
