Scissors
Screwdriver
Screw and nuts
Paint (if you do not want to wrap)
Wrapping paper

Safety Measurements:

After gathering all the supplies do the safety measurements to minimize the mess or any stains from the glue or the paint.

Small towels (to keep the hands and stuff clean)
Water bowl (for cleaning purposes)

Step 1.

Measuring and cutting:

If you can find the box exactly the size of the suitcase you want to make, then it will be perfect but if you can't, not an issue.
Start by measuring the box and mark all parts and sides of the box that are to be cut and assembled later. You will need four equal pieces, two for the cover and two for the base. One long strip that will make the walls of the box in the height of your choice and one thick that will make the walls of the lid.

Step 2.

Gluing all the parts together:

To make a strong and sturdy box that can hold a fair amount of stuff without breaking, glue two pieces of cardboard that you just cut for the base and the cover. After applying the glue, put some weight on it to secure the bond entirely.
Take an empty box of pringle and roll the strips around it to make it flexible and easy to bend without any sharp ends.
Now stick the strips on the base and the lid that you made earlier with the help of glue gun and let it dry by tightly taping all the parts in place.

Step 3.

Newspaper strength:

To make a stronger suitcase storage trunks tear small pieces of newspaper and glue it on the whole box with white glue. It increases the power of the box to 5 five times. This step needs drying overnight to give a stronger finish.

Step 4.

Add screws & handles:

To attach the lid to the box, make a shallow space in the size of the wooden pieces on which screws are going to be connected. Glue the wood pieces in the places. It will help in giving stronger attachment of the handles and locks in areas it is made for.

Step 5.

Paint Paint Paint:

At this step, you have a choice between wrapping the box or painting the table.
Paint is more preferable because of it having a long-lasting relation with wrapping paper. Wrapping paper can get spoiled quickly, and there is no big enough sheet to cover the whole box.

If you want to go vintage use pastel colors and to keep it trendy use monochrome, bright, and vivid colors to pop the fun.
Acrylic paints are proved to be the best for a DIY project as they dry quickly.

Step 6.

Decorate, be creative:

To give them the final finish, use different things like stickers, logos, names, and laces, etc. on the box. Use of beads and crystals or anything you like on the box will make it more representable on the table or in the room.
You can also add compartments and separators in these boxes for a more organized box. It is not necessary to glue it permanently in the box so that you can take it out or place it back according to the use at the time.

      Promotional items play a very vital role in marketing the product, and the name behind the product, the brand. The most common type of promotion is sales promotion. Promotional items are either the discounted items in this, or they are the products that come with a "buy one get one free" promotions. These promotions always help to increase the sales of the products as people have to invest less for the same product that was expensive for them before or was of a higher price.
      There are four basic types of promotions in the eyes of marketing;
      Advertising
      Sales promotion
      Personal selling
      Publicity

      All of these play a very vital role in boosting up the sales and increasing the yearly revenues of the businesses, and that is the main reason for promotional items printing, to sell more.The way these promotions are a useful tool for branding is the purpose of this section. They help to increase the recognition of the brand in the eyes of the people, the impact that these promotions have on the people is massive and thus, is known as one of the essential tools of setting a marketing strategy.
      More recognition
      Setting up a strong reputation in the eyes of the consumers, and the overall market is the key reason behind setting up a brand, a well-reputed brand is automatically more successful in the market. Another reason why a better reputation is needed is due to the competition in the market.
      .
      Promotions or promo items printing are required in order to stand out from the rest of the brands.
      There is a various number of brands who offer promo codes and people always prefer promo codes for sales and discounts of the services or the products that they are acquiring, which ensures more and more recognition from the society or the target market.
      More loyalty
      Creating customer retention is something that any brand would want, but making sure that they remain loyal is something that some of the brands get successful in doing. The ones who get successful in making loyal clients with better customer retention rates are the ones who follow this marketing technique of putting promotional items out there in the market.

      A considerable percentage of people go for promotions for some specific brands and remain loyal to them even if they are selling without advertisements shortly. Perhaps, it is the sense of feeling special when received a gift or a promo code after shopping from a brand once which makes the one-timer, loyal for the lifetime.
      More practical
      Like any other form of advertising, using promotional products printing is the most cost-effective one, while building your brand name. Using the media as a source of influence is the most expensive one.

      Thus, the use of promo products by the help of word of mouth is the most common and most effective one. Promo codes are mostly not given out by the businesses to every single person they have to target. People give out the promotional codes for the products to each other, which not only benefit the organization's impression on the people, but it also cut down the costs of marketing it.
      The key to standing out.
      Standing out from the rest is itself the result that comes through various ways of marketing. Having a different logo, a different name, and a different tagline are the necessities of standing out. The method of standing out to give a competition to your competitors is by applying this technique to gain more attraction to buy the customers. Using catchphrases that distinguish you and makes sure your brand gets noticed is the best of ways to get attention to stand out.

These printed promotional items will get the maximum audience for you. Each cup in a home will catch the attention of everyone who visits the place, a pen in a college will make sure everyone knows what brand is giving these out and the toys in kid's school too.
      All these methods will ensure that the maximum number of people know that your brand exists and it itself is a handy tool for branding.


      Increased sales
      By generating more and more leads, these promotional products get an increase in sales. By creating more points, it is meant that more people other than the existing customers are knowing about the product. This ensures that more and more sales of the items even without the promos. For example, the free promo items sales will get an increased if more leads are generated, more points mean more audience to target which in return results in more sales for the product and ultimately more revenues for the brand.

      Therefore, it is very just to say that promotional items are one of the leading cause of getting more exposure as it is a useful tool for branding.

      The Easiest Way to Earn the Trust
      Selling products in a retail business is not an easy task, especially when it comes to items like jewelry and electronics. Since these items are of high value, the customers think twice before spending money, unless they can see the product inside the packaging. The die-cut boxes make this job feasible for the buyers and help the manufacturer as well as the retailer to earn their trust. These boxes are made of durable cardboard stock while Kraft stock can also be an option for such containers. What makes them so special and unique from the rest of the types of packaging is their dedicated window at the top or on the front side of the container. This slot is exclusively dedicated to displaying the product while the carton is on the shelf or at the counter of the store. As the buyers can see through this slot, they can get a clear idea of what type, color, shape, and size of the product they are going to pay for. This is the easiest and the most convenient way to earn the trust of the customers for wholesale and retail businesses alike.
      Earn Trust & Flourish Your Business
      Businesses require capital to start and trust to keep on running. No company, brand, or product can thrive if it loses the customers' support that comes in the shape of trust. When customers trust a commodity, they become loyal to it, and every time they walk into a store, they pick the same brand no matter how attractive another competitive product is lying next to it

      This is the primary drive behind the fact that most of the products, especially food items, jewelry, and electronic gadgets, are packed in die-cut packaging. This type of packaging not only displays the product in a presentable manner but also keeps it safe and sound from dust, bumps, and moisture that can spoil the shape of the product and in case of a food item, can corrupt its taste as well. The window on the box can be covered with a colored or transparent vinyl sheet so that the environmental residuals cannot damage the appearance of the product packed inside the carton.
      Customize To Mesmerize
      These containers can be a useful tool to get the attention of the buyers and mesmerize them with a long-lasting impression. All this can be done with custom die-cut boxes that the manufacturer or the retailer can customize according to their own choice. Various attractive customization options can be opted to make these cartons funky and stylish, elegant and moderate, or fashionable and trendy.

      Green, Eco-Friendly Packaging

      Since these containers are also used for the packaging of food items, they need to be organic and safe for food. A food item, no matter how yummy it is, packed in a synthetic package, will not become the first choice of the customers. On the other hand, a food product that is packed in a hygienic packaging becomes the preferred choice of the customers. Even if it is not a food item, the need for green packaging is still there because, in the past few years, the demand for an environment-friendly packaging has been emphasized not only by the customers but also by the international organization working for saving the environment.

      It is due to their struggle that the customers are now aware of the importance of green, organic packaging, and they prefer the product that is packed in such packaging. Cardboard stock is one of the largest sources of manufacturing such packaging. This is the reason that these die-cut cardboard boxes are considered efficient in earning the customers' trust.
      Gift items packaging solution

      These containers are believed to be the best because they are multi functional. They are not only perfect for the packaging of food or electronics but also they are one of the most commonly selected packaging for gift items. Kids love to get gifts, and soon as they receive the box, they become eager to open it. If kids get a package that has a see-through window, they can easily see what is inside the table, and they will get super excited about it. Apart from kids, these boxes can also be used to give presents to adult, even professionals. These containers provide the gift item an attractive look and make it easier for the sender to choose a perfect packaging for a gift item.

      If you are dealing in gifts and presents business, you should start searching for a die-cut boxes manufacturer that can provide you such boxes. Such containers are available online with a lot of customization options that make them an optimal choice. Consequently, that helps you to gain the confidence of the consumer and increase your earnings.
      Printable & customization packaging

These customization can help the manufacturer to pack the product in the most suitable packaging in which the item is not only safe but also looks pretty impressive. Such packaging also helps the retailers in getting the attention of the customers towards a specific topic without any hassle. All they have to do is to put the product at a place where it can be seen by the customers easily. The packaging can do the rest of the work, the moment the customers will see the product through the frame, they will get attracted to it.

      These frames can be customized in various attractive shapes that can be according to the size and shape of the product.
