Reports show that 33% of customers think that a business is unprofessional if they receive a poorly packaged delivery, the packaging is damaged or if the packaging is plain and boring with no branding – which really goes to show how important custom packaging could be for your business; it would certainly help impress 33% of your customers.

Research also shows us that 50% of consumers are likely to refuse delivery of a package is the outer packaging is damaged or of poor quality.
