Give Your Brand a Boost With Mug Boxes

It is the name given to the packaging solution crafted for encasing mugs. For instance, coffee mugs. The mug packaging must be sturdy enough to safeguard the mugs while promoting a positive brand image and enticing customers. 

Learn Why Custom Mug Boxes Are Trending

A lot of brands prefer custom mug boxes instead of the boring old ones. Whether you're talking about coffee mug boxes or simple mug packaging boxes, customizations are the way to go. What follows is a list of reasons why it is so:

They Offer Better Protection

Even if it is a simple paperboard box, standard boxes are not custom-made to fit mugs. Thus, they are more likely to be crushed or dented in transit. On the other hand, custom mug boxes are built with meticulously chosen materials that will keep your cups safe from harm during storage and delivery.

They Create an Experience 

When people think of coffee, they imagine themselves talking with their friends or enjoying a quiet moment for themselves. Given this, you can set yourself up for long-term success if you package your mugs in packages that create this sort of lifestyle imagery. In addition, customization will give you the chance to create a visual experience that your customers will appreciate.

They Are More Aesthetically Pleasing

Custom mug boxes are better looking than generic ones. You can design them with unique colors or patterns that help your product stand out from the crowd. At the same time, custom papers will complement your branding messages perfectly without being too distracting.

They Boost Brand Awareness 

You can play into that part of your customer's brain that remembers the last thing it saw or heard that was relevant to what is currently happening. Customization will help you connect with customers and increase their brand awareness levels. That way, they'll be more likely to remember you when they want to make a similar purchase.

They Allow You to Be More Specific 

You can display an image of your brand mascot right on the side of the box. That way, customers will have a general idea about what kind of product they are getting even before opening it up. Using this sort of specificity gives you your own little niche right in the hearts and minds of customers.

Finishing Coats For Mug Boxes

Let's say you're ordering custom coffee mug packaging boxes; wouldn't you want them to have an extra layer of protection that also enhances their visual appeal? That is exactly what finishing coats do for your mug packaging. Dodo Packaging offers the following finishing coats:
  • Matte Finish
  • Soft-Touch Finish
  • Varnish Finish
  • Gloss Finish

Matte Finish

This particular finishing coat is best suited for custom mug boxes that have a laminated outer cover. This is because the matte finish complements this type of material perfectly. It also works well with heat transfer graphics as it creates a silk-like look and feels on the surface of the box.

Soft-Touch Finish

A soft-touch finish provides your mug packaging boxes with the right degree of softness and tactile gratification. It works best with matte finishes as it gives the box a more appealing look than you would get from simply using a matte coat by itself.

Varnish Finish

The varnish finishing coat is perfect for those who want their custom coffee mug boxes to have that sleek, shiny finish without sacrificing the protection that ensures their durability.

Gloss Finish 

The gloss finishing coat is the best option for those who want their custom mug boxes to have a vibrant visual appearance. This is because the coat enhances color depth and vibrancy, so your graphics will pop out perfectly. 

Add-Ons for Custom Mug Boxes

Another way to adorn your mug packaging is by using add-ons. They are minor modifications that can help you improve the functionality and visual appeal of your mug packaging. Some of the popular add-ons are as follows:
  • Embossing
  • Debossing
  • Spot UV
  • Window Patching
  • Hot Stamping


Embossing is the process of pressing a design into your custom mug boxes. This can be done on your choice of finishing coats to create unique visual effects that will boost the appeal of your products even further. It works best with glossy finishes as it allows you to enhance two-dimensional graphics with height, depth, and tactile value.


Debossing is the process of pressing a design into your custom mug boxes in order to create negative shapes with low relief. You can use debossed finishing coats for matte or soft-touch finishes so that your graphics still have some degree of visual appeal even when they are lowered.

Spot UV

Spot UV allows you to add a glossy finish to specific areas of your mug boxes. You can use this for custom coffee packaging boxes so that the label on the side of the box stands out from its surroundings. It works best with matte and soft-touch finishes as they allow you to retain a degree of tactility and visual flair on the package as well as highlight some details without making them too shiny.

Window Patching 

This add-on revolves around the idea of sticking a cut-out window on your coffee mug packaging boxes so that you can see what's inside without actually opening up the product. Coffee mug packaging with window can work with matte, soft-touch, or gloss finishes as they all come with their own unique characteristics that will affect how the graphic will appear through the window.

Hot Stamping

This add-on allows you to use a hot stamping press to imprint your custom coffee mug boxes with gold or silver foil labels. It works best for gloss finishes as it creates smooth and even finishes that make your graphics really pop out from their background.
