Custom Kits

Custom kits and subscription boxes can be a fun and convenient way to buy or gift products to others. With that being said, selling a custom kit can allow a business to curate a selection of items; these items can be tailored specifically to their customers’ needs or tastes. 

When it comes to creating appealing kits, there’s no limit. There is a wide variety of categories of custom boxes that a company can design. Doesn’t matter if the theme is practical, like a shaving kit, or whimsical, like a collection of unicorn trinkets. Custom kits are a beautiful way to present consumers with items that they will love.

Additionally, businesses that do not dabble in consumer products can still use custom kits. Creating a custom gift kit for employees or clients will set your company apart; which shows a truly thoughtful appreciation for the people who make your business possible. One way to use custom kits for employees is to use them during team-building events.

You may still be wondering how to make custom kits and use them. Don’t fret! In this article, we’ll not only explain the fundamentals of custom kits, but we’ll also explain how we, Print Bind Ship, can help!

What is a Custom Kit?

Custom kits are specialty products that you fill with items that a specific person or group of people would enjoy. Perhaps your business wants to sell its products in a monthly subscription box. Maybe you just want to design a custom gift kit for past clients for the holidays. A bundle of products can also provide an opportunity to give a unique experience, too. For example, a one-time gift box can offer the information and equipment that a client needs to start a new workout.

Companies can design custom kits for employees that share fun swag, building morale and loyalty. With a bit of creativity, you can bring a smile to any recipient with a custom gift kit.  

How to Make Custom Kits

The first step to making your kit is to determine what you want to sell or gift. 

Perhaps you already have a business selling coffee beans. If you want to sell more coffee, you could create a custom kit that includes blends. Additionally, these kits can be designed for a particular customer’s palate; send it along with a specialized gift for coffee lovers. 

Custom Kit Process

Making custom gift kits can allow buyers to purchase various items that will appeal to a certain clientele. If you have a great new product, you can slip a sample into the kit to launch the item. This way you can expose more of your target customers to your new items.

Custom kits for employees can also provide a great way to say thanks or to set the stage for team-building exercises. For example, imagine that you want to plan a company event for virtual employees. You decide to offer a live painting tutorial. Ideally, employees can sign on to have an artist show them how to create a landscape step by step. You could select the paint colors, a small canvas, brushes, and perhaps even a small bottle of wine to use. With that, your custom kits for employees would be ready and you could easily send one to each participating member.

Customers can also use a custom gift set to surprise people that are hard to buy for. They can customize a box with a tailored variety of products that are totally unique. The themes for custom kits are endless. With a custom kit gift, it can be fun and easy to curate something that will make the recipient feel special.    

When you partner with a 3PL company, the most challenging part of making custom kits is to decide what you want to include in them. Of course, that step may also be the most fun! Once you decide on a theme and have collected an array of pleasing items, the rest of the process is a breeze.
