Wholesale Gift Boxes

We have seen a huge increase in sales of our wholesale gift boxes in recent years, due to the explosion of online retailing and the need to send goods through the post.   

Online traders are looking to package their products in order to add perceived value and protect them during transit.    Obviously cost is the number 1 priority and Inca stock a large range of paper covered gift boxes at low trade prices. Our range comprises a variety of colours and sizes which are ideal for the small gift trade, with our black gift boxes being the most popular by far.     We sell huge wholesale quantites throughout the year, peaking during the run up to Christmas.     We also realise there is a demand for shallow gift boxes which can be posted in the UK as large letters.    This reduces the postage cost significantly, benefiting online retailers who can offer cheaper delivery rates to their customers, which in turn increases sales.

Paper covered gift boxes

Our wholesale gift boxes are made from cardboard which is then covered with paper. They consist of a base and a lid and usually have a flocked foam pad insert, which normally has slits or holes to accommodate the type of product it is intended to contain. They are inexpensive to make but have an air of quality about them which makes them popular for jewellery, gifts and
other similar products. They represent excellent value for money but there is one drawback to this type of box - they are bulky to transport and stock as they can not easily be nested or packed in a compact way.

The consequence of this is that larger sizes become prohibitively expensive to ship and therefore price themselves out of the market. As importers and wholesalers of gift boxes, We stock a wide range of these boxes but the plain black ones are the best sellers by a country mile. Brown kraft paper, Red and white are also extremely popular and we sell large wholesale quantites throughout the year. All sorts of sizes are suitable for all sorts of applications but there are one or two specially sized boxes such as our watch sized gift box which can obviously also be used for a number of other similar sized products.


The problem of shipping made up boxes disappears when we move on to flat pack or fold flat boxes. The name says it all. The fact that they cost little to ship and store and the fact that there are very few assembly operations makes this type of box very cheap. Whilst they may not have the appeal of a paper covered box, they can still look smart and are certainly a vast improvement on the basic brown corrugated cartons used by many. This part of our box range is still expanding. Several of our later designs are attractive and fasten together using a ribbon, making them very suitable for use as wedding favour boxes. We stock a good range of basic colours and sizes but we would be interested in any requirements you may have. If we feel there is a suitable market, we would be happy to manufacture especially for you or we could make for stock and let you call them off if you prefer(subject to quantities etc).
