The second installment of this two-part series discusses the latest gift packaging trends in Dongguan.
Dongguan makers offer all types of gift packaging products, the most popular of which come in plastic, wood, fabric, paper, leather and tin. Under efforts to widen buyers’ design choices, an increasing number of suppliers in this city in Guangdong province are using diverse materials to spice up selections and differentiate their releases. Many are adding lace trimming to wooden and paper pieces, topping MDF versions with leather and incorporating metal plates in edges or corners of boxes. Some employ transparent windows for the lids to display the contents.
Plastic gift packaging options dominate output because of their suitability for large-volume manufacture. Products come in different shapes and structures, and may be clear or frosted. The patterns are silk-screened, or offset- or heat-transfer printed. PET, PP and PVC are the common types. The first two are considered environment-friendly, with PET variants having the advantage of transparency, PP durability and PVC cost efficiency.
The wooden lineup is suitable for jewelry and watches. Besides MDF, pine, willow, birch and rosewood are the top material options. Designs are silk-screened, heat-transfer printed or carved on boxes. The wood surface may be treated with lacquer and the inside lined with velvet or foam tray.
Fabric releases are often pouches in velvet or silk. These provide a protective cushion for watches, jewelry and mobile phones. The exterior of the bags can have silk-screened, transfer-printed or embroidered logos and brand names.
Paper models utilize kraft weighing at least 250gsm. These gift packaging versions are most suited to accommodating patterns in vivid colors.
