Prototype and Short Run Boxes in Chicago

Prototype <span>and Short Run Boxes in Chicago</span>

Short Run Boxes

There are many reasons for producing a short run of boxes, and it’s hard to find someone willing to take on the task.   Whether its for a corporate gift, promotional product or a large exhibit, short-run boxes have many applications.   The big packaging companies expect millions of pieces before setting up the dies and making it cost effective, while most local print shops simply don’t have the equipment or know-how.  At SpeedPro Chicago Loop, we are a sweet spot, producing anything from one unit to a several hundred at a time.

Walmart home appliance displays with custom signage by speedpro imaging. SpeedPro Chicago Loop was hired by an agency representing the number one retailer in the world in advance of the Home and Housewares Show at McCormick Place.   Only a week prior to the exhibition we received a call asking for our help.  It turned out the access and cost to ship real product to the show for the display was becoming impractical.  The agency requested that we produce 300+ plus boxes and surrounding point of purchase display boards, replicating an actual in-store experience without any real product inside.

The agency created a very realistic experience and saved the client thousands of dollars in product shipment and potential damage by utilizing a short-run box strategy.
