If you have spent months growing grapes, harvesting them and using them to produce a fine wine, you will want to make sure that the product arrives with your customer in perfect condition. Wine bottles can be fragile things, and exposure to warm sunlight can cause the wine to sour. The best way of protecting your wine is to have it stored, transported and sold in a custom made wine box. Below is a guide to the benefits offered by custom wine boxes.
A choice of wood
When you are designing your custom wine box, you will be able to choose from a range of different wood. Most wine boxes are made using pine. However, you may wish to mix it up. If you are creating a box for a luxury bottle of wine, you could opt for custom made boxes which are manufactured using cedar, birch or oak.
A choice of designs
Once you have decided on the type of wood you wish to use, you will next need to decide on the design. You may wish to look at some other wine box designs for inspiration. If you feel confident in your idea, you can chat with the manufacturer who will be able to advise you what is and isn't possible. The manufacturer will use special tools to create the design onto the surface of the wine box. You can either have the design produced in a 2D way, so that it is printed onto the surface of the wood or, if you wish to impress your customers, you may opt for a 3D design. A 3D design involves engraving the design into the surface of the wood. The depressed areas are then coloured so that they stand out.
A choice of fixtures and fittings
Finally, you can choose from a wide range of different fixtures and fittings which will really make your wine box look professional. For example, you may wish to have special hinges fitted to the wine box so that it can be fitted with a two piece door rather than a single piece of wood. You may also wish to add hooks and clasps to the custom wine box so it can be sealed again once it has been opened.
