If you’ve ever gone through the process of sending swag, you know that there are many decisions to be made—from campaign kickoff all the way up to the moment your recipient opens their swag at their door, the final outcome relies on smart choices and attention to detail.

In addition to selecting your recipients, swag items, and delivery time frame, you’ll also want to consider things like how the swag is made and how the swag will be packaged up for delivery.

We’re excited to expand options with new offerings that will add to the overall quality and experience of receiving swag. Read on to learn about these new sustainable options for printing and delivering your swag with Printfection.

1. Print better swag with water-based inks

Printfection customers can now choose to print their branded swag using water-based inks. These differ from the industry-standard plastisol inks, which are bad for the environment and also prone to cracking and peeling. Water-based inks soak directly into the fabric of the garment instead of sitting on top like standard plastisol ink. As a result, water-based inks leave behind an incredibly soft, breathable print that doesn’t crack or peel over time.

You can read more about our partnership with Real Thread (a water-based printing company), ink styles to choose from, and the various benefits of water-based inks here.

2. Easily brand boxes with custom tape

Custom packaging tape is an easy, fast, and inexpensive way to brand your swag shipments. You can now design branded tape that will be applied to kraft boxes for a beautiful pop of color and customization. Think of this option as a step between the simple kraft boxes that come standard and the fully custom kitting packages we offer.

The custom tape is kraft paper reinforced with fiberglass strands, which gives packages an extra layer of strength that offers both security and style. The tape is also water-activated so it’s biodegradable, repulpable, and can be recycled with other paper goods.

3. Deliver swag with eco-friendly mailers

Another new addition to our packaging options is TerraBoard mailers. These cost effective and eco-friendly mailers are 100% recycled, recyclable, and made in the USA.

This durable packaging is perfect for delivering many popular swag items like apparel, soft goods, accessories, and paper items like journals. Overall, TerraBoard is an optimal choice for customers who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint and prioritize sustainability in their swag deliveries.
