How to Build a Subscription Box

December 1, 2017  |  

If you have ever thought of starting a subscription box business, you are not alone. Subscription box businesses are one of the most rapidly growing business models right now. It has become so popular that there are businesses who cater solely to subscription boxes. It is not hard to get a business like this off the ground, the difficult part is getting your brand to stick; that’s why we here at StickerYou have come up with a few tips to building your box.

Custom die-cut and kiss-cut stickers

It only takes a couple of items to make a subscription box. If you decided to start a coffee subscription box you could put in a couple bags of coffee beans some filters and add a few other simple items. No matter the theme of your box there are some inclusions that always win over your subscribers. Adding a Die-Cut Sticker to your subscription box is a great way to show off your logo and make your brand stick.

T-shirt with custom iron-on

You can also add a shirt to your box quite easily, using Iron-On Transfers. It doesn’t matter if you have 50 or 500 subscribers, Iron-Ons are an easy way to create an awesome shirt that your subscribers will love!

Custom patch on a hat

Alternatively, if you don’t want to deal with sizing but still want to include something your subscribers can wear, I would suggest adding a hat to your subscription box. You can use one of our Custom Patches to add your logo, a funny phrase, or a cute image. You can even just include the patch on its own and let your subscribers decide what to do with it. The possibilities are endless.

Subscription box sealed with custom packing tape and sticker

When all of your items are tucked neatly inside, it is time to seal up your subscription box and send it off. Remember, the first thing your subscribers will see is the box itself, so take some time to make sure that every part of the box will "wow" your subscriber, even the outside. Using a Custom Label or some Custom Tape to seal your box will really make your brand stick out and create a very professional look.
