    We all love receiving exciting packages in the mail — whether we placed the order ourselves or as a surprise from a friend or loved one. This is why the subscription box industry has boomed over the past couple years — with no signs of it slowing down any time soon. 

    To help get you inspired, Team Fantastapack compiled a subscription box gallery featuring some of our favorite packaging designs that hit it out of the park. In no particular order, take a look at these designs for inspiration before you create your own custom box or mailer.

    You can't deny it — this design is adorable. We like the way Pusheen Box uses the entire outer space of their box, rather than sticking to one or two panels, to provide a unique packaging experience.

    Featuring a different pattern every month, SprezzaBox differentiates its packaging design based on seasonality and the curated items within the box.

    Using an eye-catching pattern on the outside of your box can provide a bold field to make your logo stand out. We love the groovy pattern that Festy Babe uses on their packaging.

    When it comes to packaging design, oftentimes less is more. This is why the minimalist design trend is becoming increasingly popular, especially with high-end luxury brands. We love the modern and simplistic look of SEEN's packaging.

    Using kraft material or kraft-colored packaging gives off a natural and earthy appearance — perfect for health-conscious food and beverage brands. Oat Box provides a great example of this trend done right. 


    Womb Box

    Inside print is a great way to add a unique touch during the crucial moment of unboxing. To contrast their simple outer packaging design, Womb Box uses bright colors and fun messaging inside the box to directly communicate with subscribers.

    Colors play an important role in packaging. According to color theory, there's nothing that attracts the eye more than complementary colors. We enjoy the way We Craft Box uses complementary colors to make their logo standout.
