Plastic boxes are a great way to package, protect, and ship products, from sugar cookies to high end laboratory equipment. Hinged boxes are a favorite of hunting supply shops for packaging turkey and duck calls, and they’re trusted by medical companies to protect delicate optical components.

But there are some products that you may not be used to seeing in plastic boxes – and a few you may never have thought of at all! Today we’re sharing seven unique and interesting products that our customers use our plastic boxes for. Do any of them surprise you?

1. Awards

Not quite the Oscars – but awards in the form of pins and medals like those used in military celebrations and graduations, are beautifully showcased in our hinged plastic boxes. Our 1×1 container is popular for just such occasions.

They’re ideally sized, and custom foam inserts make the perfect place for sticking a pin to keep the medal in place.

pool cue tips plastic boxes2. Pool Cue Tips

If you’re a pool player, then you know that the cue tip is arguably the most important part of the cue.

The cue tip is responsible for accuracy, speed and spin, and much has been written about proper care and maintenance of this invaluable part.

That’s why plastic boxes make an ideal display and storage container. They’re strong, sturdy, and can be fit with foam inserts to hold each piece in its place.

They can even be imprinted with your logo or artwork for memorable branding.

oboe reed plastic boxes3. Oboe Reeds

The most delicate part of the oboe is the reed – and also the most important, since it’s what produces the sound.

It’s also expensive, and no musician wants to replace one unnecessarily or take one home to find out it’s been damaged from the start.

Hinged plastic boxes make excellent containers for both protecting and showcasing these fragile instrument parts.

And they’re not just good for oboe reeds – clarinet and saxophone reeds are served just as well. Soft foam inserts keep them in place and protect them from breakage. And our G425 and G540 are the perfect sizes. Imprinted with your logo they make for a beautiful and high end presentation.

fidget spinners plastic boxes4. Fidget Spinners

Fidget spinners are all the rage. They’re marketed as aids for everything from anxiety to attention deficit disorder and they grace store shelves everywhere.

And what better way to secure them and entice shoppers than with a crystal clear plastic box?

Foam inserts keep them nicely in place and clear lids show off the product without obscuring it. They’re easier to store and stack and can be shipped cost-effectively, too.

eyelashes plastic boxes5. Eyelashes

Those long, luxurious lashes don’t always come courtesy of Mother Nature. For those who want a more dramatic look, cosmetic eyelashes do the trick.

They’re tiny, delicate and since they’re used near the eye, it’s important to keep them clean.

Plastic boxes are suited for keeping lashes clean, safe and stored when not in use. It’s also easy to see and find them when they’re needed. Your logo or artwork on the lid makes your brand stand out on vanity counters in stores and homes everywhere.

urns plastic boxes6. Ashes

It’s common practice for veterinarians and animal hospitals to offer the ashes of cremated pets to bereaved families, and our specialty OMNI boxes offer a subdued and elegant way to store them.

Molded in opaque white, these seamless containers are a proper tribute to lost pets. They’re available in a number of sizes to accommodate ashes from pets of all kinds, and are an inexpensive yet tasteful way to honor those special individuals.

smores plastic boxes7. S’mores On A Stick

To end on a lighter note, what’s more fun than this iconic treat? Not much, except perhaps a s’more on a stick – in a box!

Turn what is otherwise an ordinary chocolate dessert into a memorable treat with this upscale display.

Kids will love it and adults will covet it. Add a logo, ribbon, or custom printed insert to make this special treat your own.

We hope this list has sparked some ideas for how you can take an ordinary product and turn it into an extraordinary treasure with the right packaging.
