Perhaps most important for an aesthetically pleasing box is the graphics, text, and colors that will be printed on the box. There are no hard and fast rules about printing a beautiful box, but if there was one piece of advice the team would give you, it'd be to keep it simple. Clean, uncomplicated designs look the best, are most memorable, and represent your brand in the best light. Imagine how much better your printed box will look next to all those plain brown boxes out there. On top of this, a custom box typically runs only about 5-8% more than a stock, standard box.
