How to Build a Custom Swag Box

Whether you’re looking to onboard new hires, impress a VIP client or reward employees with a delightful surprise, a custom swag box full of branded gifts is an excellent way to go!

Swag boxes are a delightful way to show your appreciation for both internal and external associates. They make an impact that will last for a long time, making them a great opportunity to build brand recognition and company loyalty. 

With thousands of customizable items available to add into a custom swag box, is the best place to create and distribute custom gift sets for corporate gifting. So how does it work?

Here’s how to make a custom swag box:

Building custom swag boxes is simple, easy and even fun. We’ve broken the process down into four easy steps:

Step 1: Pick gifts and customize them

Browse our selection of over 1,000 items, all available for customization with your logo or artwork. Our products span categories from tech, to wellness, to WFH items and more! Use our handy filter feature to sort through items by color, price, production timeline and lots more useful criteria. No matter what your budget is, we have something that will suit your needs perfectly.

Once you’ve selected the items you want, upload your artwork or logo to add a custom design for each item. You’ll be able to see a mockup in real time, but don’t worry— one of our expert designers will send you a more in-depth mockup to approve before anything goes into production. 

Any items that are able to be added to a custom box will display a box icon on their product page, as shown in the image below:

After all the items you want to add to your box are added to your cart, you can move on to step 2!

Step 2: Create a box from your cart

From your cart, you can begin making a box by pressing the button in the top right corner that says, “Want to build a box?” 

Pressing that button will trigger the box creation process! You begin by choosing a name for your box. Remember that you can make several different boxes with the same items in your cart. If you are doing that, it’s helpful to choose a name that will keep your boxes organized.

Step 3: Choose your box customization options

After you name your box, you’ll begin customizing the boxes themselves. We offer four different options for box customization that you’ll get to choose from. Here’s what you can select:

Depending on your choice of box, you might need to upload some images to be used for customization. Again, our expert designers will check in with you to make sure you are happy with your design before anything goes into production. 

Next, you get to choose which items from your cart you want to include in your box. You can use all of them, or just some of them. You even have the option to add extra goodies into your box! These include items like snacks, hand soaps and more. These are fun additions that will add to the impact your box makes when they reach your audience.

Finally, you have the option to add custom notecards or crinkle paper to your custom boxes. We always recommend using these, as they add a personal touch that really ties boxes together.

Step 4: Distribute around the world

Now that your boxes are completely built, you get to choose how you want to distribute them! There are two basic options for shipping:

  • Ship to one address is what it sounds like: we send your boxes to a single location as soon as they are ready to go. 
  • Ship to multiple addresses is a fantastic way to reach remote audiences around the world at their homes, offices, or anywhere else! This choice allows you to store your boxes in our warehouse and have them shipped one at a time, or all at once, whenever you say!

No matter what shipping option you choose for your boxes, we will always give you up to date production and tracking information so you are never in the dark about where your boxes are. 

And that’s it! With, making custom boxes for employees, leads and clients is easy as cake. We believe that gifting should be just as fun for the gifter as it is for the giftee, so we’ve made the whole process headache free from beginning to end.
