The “unboxing” trend is popular online, being shared, posted and retweeted all over social media.

It makes the box that much more important in ecommerce, as its one of the few key touch points in the value stream to convey a message or impress the consumer,” says Stack. “We are able to provide our customers with a unique and memorable packaging experience for any of their tar- get markets, with POP displays, e-commerce packaging and retail ready displays. We do all of that now,” says Ryan Jones, plant manager of Wasatch Container. This award winning design is an example of how Wasatch Con- tainer can create an ‘unboxing experience’ for the recipient.
