1. What is your MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity)?

No MOQ on any cannabis packaging orders here! We’re proud to be one of the top cannabis packaging companies that provides low-quantity options. We’ll guide you based on minimum equipment set-ups to ensure you get just what you need. No need to worry about hitting a minimum order – we’ve got you covered!

2. What sustainable packaging options do you offer?

At our cannabis packaging company, we’re big on sustainability! Choose from our wide range of eco-friendly options, including recyclable and compostable pouches with child-resistant zippers and recyclable clear cellophane for windows. Our child-resistant boxes feature FSC and hemp-derived papers, and we offer virgin glass, PCR plastics, resin containers, and caps. It’s all about making the green choice!

3. What are your typical lead times?

Lead times can vary based on the specifics of your cannabis packaging needs and order quantity. For ready-to-go options, we maintain an inventory of custom cannabis jars and tubes that can often be dispatched from our new warehouse on the same day. When it comes to our specialty – custom pouch printing – you’re looking at an average of around 3 weeks plus freight. Rest assured, we’re committed to delivering quality child-resistant packaging in a timely fashion!

4. How much will my cannabis packaging project cost?

No worries! Our cannabis packaging company is all about working with you to get the best pricing that fits your budget. If needed, we’ll toss some alternatives your way to make sure everything aligns with your financial plan. Losing business over price? Not really our style. With over 40 years in the printing game, we’ve handpicked a select few factories that meet our top-notch quality control standards. Why not give us a shot?

5. Can you make my cannabis packaging project happen?

Absolutely! Consider it done. We’re here with you through every twist and turn of your project, providing regular status updates to keep you in the loop. Your Account Manager is just a text away, making communication a breeze. Think of us as your one-stop custom shop! We even throw in FREE graphic design services to help set your job up for success, ensuring it aligns with all those state regulations. Let’s make it happen!

6. Do you manufacture packaging for cannabis in the U.S.?

You bet! We’re big fans of supporting our U.S. factories. The decision to manufacture in the US or not comes down to your budget, packaging needs, and timing. We’re here to guide you through all the options so you can make the best call for creating your custom packaging solution.

7. Why do you print so much of your cannabis packaging overseas?

Plain and simple – it boils down to price and quality. While we aim to produce in the U.S. whenever possible, the reality is that nearly every aspect of printing tends to be more cost-effective offshore. In the cannabis industry, budgets play a crucial role in influencing our production choices. We take pride in the excellent quality our overseas factories consistently deliver, enabling us to offer up to 10-color printing with various finish options.

8. Do you provide 3-D concepts of cannabis packaging design?

Absolutely! It’s one of the perks that come without a price tag. We’re all about making sure the size fits right, so we encourage you to test your product in the appropriate dimensional proof. It’s all part of our quality control process to ensure everything aligns perfectly. No need to worry – we’ve got you covered!

9. Do you provide free packaging samples?

For sure! It’s another one of our freebies. We’ll whip up some printed samples of your design job, so you can give the color a thumbs up in advance and feel totally at ease, no surprises. It might add a couple of extra days to your schedule, but no sweat – your Account Manager will keep you in the loop well ahead of time.

10. Can I get press sheets or color drawdowns?

Absolutely! Just like those awesome 3-D packaging design concepts and free samples of your packaging, we throw in press sheets and color drawdowns for free too. We’ll give you a peek at the exact ink on your chosen substrate, and if any tweaks are needed, we’re right on it. No extra cost – it’s all part of the deal!

11. What do you charge for concepts and/or press sheets?

No charge at all! It’s all on the house as part of our quality control process to make sure your project hits the mark. Your satisfaction is our top priority, and if you’re happy, we’re over the moon.

12. How does the proofing process work for my cannabis packaging?

Our proofing process is designed to keep you in the loop at every step of your cannabis packaging journey. After you’ve given the green light on the dimensional concept and finalized the art/design we’ll work together to determine whether local proofs are sufficient or if we need to provide factory color drawdowns or physical samples—whether in a pristine white or featuring the full print. It’s all about making sure you’re happy with the outcome before we move forward!

13. Can I pay COD?

Unfortunately, we don’t do COD payments. To get the ball rolling, we’ll request a 50% deposit for each order, and the remaining balance will be due before we ship out your items. Once you’re a seasoned client with our cannabis packaging company, we can chat about hooking you up with some cool net terms, assuming your credit application gets the green light.

14. Do you offer net terms?

Absolutely! A bunch of our clients enjoy net terms, and if you’ve got a good track record with payments, you’re in luck. Once you’re a trusted and established client, we’ll invite you to fill out a quick credit application. Once that’s sorted and approved, we’ll work together to set up those sweet net terms just for you.

15. How much do you charge for design work?

Nothing!  All of our cannabis graphic design services are FREE.

16. Do you supply templates?

For sure! We’ve got a bunch of cannabis design templates ready to roll to help you out. When you chat with your Account Manager about your project, we’ll figure out if there’s a template that fits the bill or if we need to whip up a custom one just for you (and don’t worry, it’s on the house).

17. Where do you ship from?

We dispatch our cannabis packaging products primarily from our warehouse in Northern California. Each of our state-of-the-art factories adheres to rigorous quality control procedures. Taking our commitment to excellence a step further, we meticulously inspect your order in our warehouse before finalizing the shipping process. Should the need arise, we are more than happy to coordinate arrangements for your items to be shipped directly from our cutting-edge factories.

18. Do you have your own freight company?

For U.S. shipments, we work with specially vetted third-party freight companies to handle our shipping needs. When it comes to off-shore shipments, we take the reins and manage much of the freight ourselves, utilizing full containers for efficient shipping. Your goods are in good hands!

19. Do you have multiple/national shipping locations?

Absolutely! We operate packaging factories both nationally and off-shore, giving us the flexibility to make special arrangements for shipping directly to you. Wherever you are, we’ve got you covered!

20. Do you warehouse stock items?

Yes! Our brand-new warehouse in Northern California is stocked up and ready to roll. Give your Account Manager a shout to find out what exciting packaging items we have in inventory this month. Let’s get you what you need!

21. Where is your cannabis packaging company located?

It’s a well-oiled machine – we ship out hundreds of boxes every week, all with the utmost care. Your cannabis packaging is in excellent hands!

23. What is your knowledge of cannabis compliance regulations by state?

We serve clients nationwide, and staying informed about cannabis regulations across the U.S.A. is no small feat. Our dedicated team of designers and Account Managers is constantly on the ball, diligently checking the regulations specific to your state. This proactive approach ensures that your cannabis labeling and packaging meet compliance standards and avoids any hiccups at your distribution center. We’re committed to keeping abreast of the dynamic landscape of cannabis regulations to provide you with the best and most compliant solutions.

24. Is shipping included in your packaging cost?

Shipping costs are not bundled into your product packaging expenses. Instead, we break it out separately on your job proposals, tailoring it to your preferred shipping method and budget. Our commitment is to transparency, ensuring that all costs are upfront and clearly communicated to avoid any surprises down the line.

25. How long have you been in the cannabis industry?

With over 40 years of printing experience under our belt, we boldly entered the cannabis packaging scene in 2017. Our focus centers on the art of creating custom child-resistant packaging, catering to a diverse clientele that ranges from dynamic start-ups to influential industry leaders.

  • Provide any ingredients or nutritional facts and barcodes, when applicable
