Product boxes are currently limited to printing on the exterior only. You can even use our online box designer to design the inside of Mailer boxes. For Shippers and Tuck Tops, we currently require a 2D dieline template be submitted for both the interior and exterior so we can set up your order as a custom order. First, Amazon requires all product photos on its site to be just the product’s image on a white background. For this reason, many savvy product branding experts recognize that certain colors — particularly neon yellows, oranges, and blue — show up well on Amazon’s white background.

You know that feeling —> You just got home and your Amazon package is eagerly waiting outside your door. You slice open the box with a pumping excitement, only to find a swarm of plastic air pillows engulfing your itty-bitty product. WTF is all this for? Did they run out of smaller boxes? A minute ago, you were so excited to get your delivery, but now you just feel guilty looking at all the unnecessary packaging you have to figure out how to throw away.
After thinking about the many times I’ve had a delivery like this, I realized how easy it was for me to complain about the packaging without taking any responsibility for it. Amazon was the one who shipped it, but at the end of the day, I was the one who ordered it, which meant the wastefulness of the situation was also on me.
This is where the eco-guilt slips in. I wasn’t just a victim, who had to succumb to Amazon’s packaging protocols. I had a part to play.
I’d received many orders like this. But I’d never given Amazon packaging feedback. So how were they supposed to know if people (as eco-conscious as me) weren’t contacting them to let them know their packaging was wasteful? And . . . why would they change their practices if I didn’t tell them that minimal, eco-friendly packaging was important to me?
Frequently Asked Questions
Below you'll find answers to some common questions around creating a custom box. Every order is little different though, so don't hesitate to reach out with anything else you might be wondering.
Can I get an instant quote for my order?
Amazon No Plastic Packaging
Yes, you can select your custom box style, size, material, and quantity on our free 3D box design tool to instantly view a quote for your project. As you upload artwork, add text, or color the background in each panel of the 3D model, you'll see your Unit Price update in real-time.
What if I'm designing in Adobe Illustrator?
If you're building your design on one of our Illustrator templates, you can submit your file on our Dieline Upload tool and a quote for your project will be sent to you ASAP. You can also email your dieline to our customer support team and we'll send you back a quote. If you do not have a design for your box yet, you can get a rough quote by applying a solid color on any panels of our 3D design tool where you will want your design printed.
How does your 3D box designer work?
If you have individual artwork elements such as logos, images or text, you can customize your box specifications directly on our 3D design tool and receive pricing on that same page. As you build your design on the 3D box model, you will see your Unit Price update in real-time to reflect any changes that affect your project's pricing. Once you have finalized your design, you can proceed directly to checkout, save your design for later, or even share your design with friends or colleagues!
What is the turnaround time on my order?
Our Standard turnaround for most custom box orders is around 10 business days and Rush turnaround is 7 business days. These turnarounds do not include transit time (1 - 7 business days depending on your location). Bulk or special custom orders may require a few extra days to get setup and produced. Please note that during extremely busy times of year some orders may take longer to complete. While delivery estimates cannot be guaranteed, all dates shown at checkout are the quickest estimate we offer. If your delivery date is time sensitive, we highly recommend choosing Rush production and expedited shipping.
What happens after I place my order? Do I get a proof before printing?
After checkout, our dedicated Prepress team will review your design for any technical concerns and send a 2D digital proof to your email within 24 hours. If any changes need to be made, you can send a note directly to our Prepress team through the proof page and they'll be happy to help with finalizing your design for printing.

Will I see a proof for my order?
All new orders will receive a digital proof within 24 hours of completing the checkout process.
How do I know if my art is printable?
Amazon Packaging Bags
Our dedicated in-house Prepress team will review your custom box design for any technical concerns (artwork resolution, blurriness, splits, thin lines, and bleeds) and if found, will note them for your attention in the proof. If you're unsure of how to fix any printing concerns that are noted, our Prepress representatives are happy to help you through the process. It's important to keep in mind that our team does not check for spelling or grammar errors, nor do they provide any subjective feedback on design content.
Can you print inside the box?
Yes! We can print on the inside of any of our corrugated box styles. This includes Mailers, Shippers, and Tuck Tops (our secret menu box style!). Product boxes are currently limited to printing on the exterior only. You can even use our online box designer to design the inside of Mailer boxes. For Shippers and Tuck Tops, we currently require a 2D dieline template be submitted for both the interior and exterior so we can set up your order as a custom order. You can also submit designs this way for our Mailer boxes, if you prefer to build on a 2D Illustrator template instead of our free 3D box design tool.
What choices affect my pricing?
Amazon Packaging Jobs
10 pm pst to utc. As a high-volume producer with scale economies, Packlane provides the industry's most competitive prices on custom printed boxes available. Pricing is generally a factor of five things: dimensions, box style, ink coverage on the box, box material, and quantity (higher quantities = bulk quantity savings). If you have questions about pricing or choices that can affect your order, our customer support team is happy to help!
