Product Hunters/Huntresses!!! This founder is beyond stoked to hear what ya’ll have to say about @Arka_packaging! We busted our BUTTS off developing our online customizer that let’s you select infinite versions of the 3 main types of packaging and brand them on the spot. Shippers, Mailers and Cartons. We have a promo going on right now that’s 5 boxes for $5 and we would love to hear feedback on what you think about the experience! Whatever you don’t see on our site you can request through support@arka.io and we will have you COVERED! Our team: • Wizard • Rocket Scientist • Utility Knife • Blue Shell (shout out to Mario Kart fans everywhere) We want to hear from YOU, so please try us out! UPDATE: Our website just went down temporarily, we were hugged to death. Good problem to have, we will make sure you can still place an order with us! support@arka.io :) :) :) UPDATE 2: We have been back up since 2pm :) UPDATE 3: Stopped by the @producthunt offices!!!

Here I made a box with your customizer ;) Seriously though good job on the website. It's easy to use. After your 5 for 5 product offer though, the unit economics don't make a lot of sense. I could buy wholesale a whole bunch of corrugated boxes for less than $1 even at low volume, and then slap on a large full color sticker for less than a quarter, and my customers would be just as happy.

@joshbarkin how about one round you buy our printed boxes and survey your customers to see what they liked more? Beautifully branded packaging wth full print, or a plain box that you slap a sticker on 😉 Nice job working the customizer! You're a pro! 😎😎😎

@pakhzar I'll take the offer. Ship to Toronto Canada?

Great product and upvoted. Some feedback. 1. For non US customers it's essential to have a toggle to change to metric. 2. Image design needs to have snap to centre/margin etc. 3. For product boxes being able to print inside is important.

@yu_angela 1. You totally called this one Angela, working on the metric conversion. 2. If you mock something up, we will center everything after and show you a proof within 48 hours to see if this is something you want to go into production. 3. Again we will email you a proof and if you respond with "give me inside print", we will make those adjustments before production! 👌 Which box did you order? We can make adjustments for you and thanks for the feedback! 🤓

Arka is your go-to for custom packaging done right. I've seen it used for subscription boxes to beautiful gift boxes sent to special customers. Nothing more to say. It's that simple.
