Old State Farms: Pure Goodness

Nothing makes your pancakes sweeter than a drizzle of good ol’ maple syrup. Old State Farms produces 100% pure maple syrup made through sustainable harvest methods. Since 2001, owner Joseph Burkett has been collecting tree sap, sharing their creations at local farmer’s markets and festivals. 

Joseph wanted to bring their products to the next level and showcase them with a presentable packaging solution.

The Challenge

This wasn’t the first time Old State Farms worked with us. Before, we made a gable box for their infused and barrel-aged syrups. They were happy with the results and decided to work with us again. 

This time around, Old State Farms wanted to design a rigid box and custom inserts that will house their infusion sampler bottles. Before coming to us, they were using instock rigid boxes as a temporary solution. It didn’t fit the product correctly, which may cause damages to the product if the packaging is mishandled during the delivery process. Not only that, the product wouldn’t look presentable at all!

The Solution

Old State Farms didn’t have a specific deadline, but they had a budget. Our product specialists took Joseph’s project information and provided different cost-effective packaging options for him to choose from. 

Joseph selected the two-piece rigid box with a white corrugated insert; both are great durable choices for housing fragile items like their glass syrup bottles. Both components were made simultaneously. The rigid box was a simple design measure around the dimensions of all three bottles laid out. To create a classic look, the whole box is printed black with the white Old States Farm logo. The corrugated inserts consist of a long rectangle cardboard that’s folded then glued to fit within the rigid box, ensuring that the 3 bottles fit comfortably inside.

Remember how Old State Farms don’t have a deadline? Well, that means they can save costs on shipping too! We offer different shipping methods based on the client’s timeline such as express air shipping, sea shipping, and a combination of the two. In this case, all Old State Farms’ custom boxes can be sea shipped because of their flexible timeline.

The Result

The black boxes we just received are perfect. The 3 bottles fit just right and the finish is just what we’re working for.
