Understanding Mockups For Paper Boxes

Updated On: Aug. 17, 2019


Can I get Mockup for all the Paper Packaging Items?
For most of the paper packaging products, you can get the Mockup. After you place the order and provide the design to be printed, the digital print is taken on the paper. 
The printed paper is folded by hand to give the shape of the paper bag or the paper box.
For paper packaging products such as paper containers and paper cups, the paper blanks are digitally printed. The paper blanks are wrapped around the plain paper cup for the idea.
The Mockup on the actual paper is possible mostly after the customer makes the advance payment. Its common for the manufacturer to order the paper roll from its dealers after the order is placed. Then, a small sheet of paper is cut from the paper roll manually, and the paper box mockup is prepared. The print might not be possible in this Mockup.

Will there be any difference in the Paper Box Mockup and the manufactured Boxes?
Generally, a Mockup is prepared by taking the digital print on the sheet of paper, which is then folded by hand to give it a shape. The digital printed Mockup will have the difference of 5-10% in colour and shine as the Mockup is prepared using digital printers if compared to the Offset printing.
The paper used while making the paper box Mockup might be different. The Mockup is prepared on the available printing sheet with the closest specifications of the actual paper to be used for manufacturing the paper boxes.

What is Mockup in Paper Packaging Industry?
The Mockup is the physical replica of the packaging product to be manufactured in very large quantity. At the mockup stage, there's a chance to add a few modifications if required, which wouldn't be possible once the manufacturing for the packaging product begins.

Why are Mockups prepared?
The Mockups for Paper Bags, Paper Boxes are prepared so that the customer gets the real idea about the paper product to be manufactured. 
The mockups in various shapes & sizes are prepared and sent to the company for approval before the manufacturing begins. With the real Mockup in hand, the customer can determine if the box will be manufactured as per the expectations or there are few changes to be made.
The Mockups of the paper products such as the paper bag, paper boxes, paper containers are used to click pictures which are used for promotions.

What if I want to make changes after looking at the Paper Box Mockup?
If there are small design or shape changes, then those changes can be incorporated easily. But if the changes aren't small, then the pricing for the boxes might changes. You can opt for another Mockup of the Paper Box with the new changes.
