Flexible packaging is usually the most economical and environmentally friendly option. This includes cigar / tobacco products which are sold or shipped or with or inside a paper, paperboard, cardboard, or corrugated box. This also includes custom humidors and display packaging.
Premium cigars, vaping, and tobacco products need higher quality packaging to show customers that the product is better than any of the ‘standard’ options. We believe the little details matter, so we often use wood and metal to help elevate the commercial appeal your smoking / vaping products.
High end wines and spirits need luxurious packaging to match the quality of the product provided. We offer a variety of luxury packaging options, from elegant product boxes through to eye-catching display cases made from the finest quality materials.
Rigid packaging is a popular choice for premium and luxury products, as it tends to use tougher and more expensive materials. This includes custom humidors, glass cigar jars, and custom cigar boxes made from (or incorporating) wood and / or metal.
Here are some of our favorite cigar and tobacco packaging projects, including famous brands like General Cigar, Imperial Tobacco, and JR Cigars.
This includes any type of wrapping paper, tissue paper, paper bags, printed label, or cigar bands. Paper is a highly versatile material, and can be printed, decorated, and folded in numerous ways to create the desired brand experience you are seeking.
Paperboard is commonly used to protect and dispense cigars, and provides higher perceived quality than paper alone. This includes collapsible cartons, product boxes, and rigid paper mailers. Paperboard is extremely versatile, with many printing, coloring, texturing, and folding options.
Cardboard is a popular choice for collapsible shipping cartons, retail displays, and highly durable rigid mailers. This material has many printing options, and usually all surfaces can be customized according to brand requirements using double sided printing.
Rigid Boxes and Cases
Rigid boxes do not fold or collapse like paper materials, and is therefore the ideal packaging material for protecting premium cigars and tobacco products. It is also a popular choice for those seeking the highest perceived value for their product. There are almost endless options with rigid materials.
Packaging with Glass and Ceramics
In some product categories, the use of glass containers, bottles, and jars is expected. Though glass and ceramics both offer some incredible options if your product can support a higher cost per unit. Ceramics can especially stand out from a product category dominated by wood, paper, and glass.
Wooden Boxes and Cases
Wood is one of our favorite rigid box materials. While a popular choice for pallets, crates, and boxes used for international trade, wood can also be used to craft truly exquisite packaging for cigars. Which is why wood is a very popular option for premium cigar boxes and humidors.
Packaging with Metal
Using metal is your cigar packaging design is highly rewarding once you see and feel the results in your hand. When almost every product today is made with paper or plastic, the few luxury brands using metal in their designs will always stand out on the retail shelf.
