If you're looking for a way to create custom packaging for your small business, you can do it for pretty much free.

Whether you're selling t shirts or tumblers, mugs or other custom items you can customize packaging for free with the help of your Silhouette machine. 

The trick to creating custom packaging for small business for free is to re-use, re-brand, and re-ship in the original packaging to keep the price of packaging to pretty much free.

What do I mean by that? Let's use these tumblers and skinny tumblers as an example. When I purchased the blanks, all of them were shipped together but each in its own individual white box.

Those boxes aren't just for shipping to me they are for customizing for customers.  You can easily print out logo stickers to add to the boxes...

...or add a QR code with care instructions.

Not only does this allow you to provide important information without extra papers or added weight for the shipment, but it allows you to brand your products increasing the perceived value to your customer.

To create your own labels and stickers design in Silhouette Studio with your logo and then print and cut.

If you have a Silhouette Mint stamp machine, you could also create a custom logo stamp and add that to your packaging for your small business.
