Protected, branded, industrial packaging delivers products to consumers directly or through a retail channel. Several retail packaging boxes can be stored into one sustainable industrial package, or in some cases, an industrial package can become a retail package. For more than six decades, Bay Cities has been supplying eco-friendly corrugated packaging solutions to a multitude of industries that rely on speed to market, quality graphics, and sustainable business practices. Sustainable packaging is integral when manufacturing our environmentally friendly corrugated shipping boxes.
We are vertically integrated with our corrugator, Encorr. Encorr is powered by steam that is generated by New Indy, the paper plant next door, that recycles old corrugated cartons into paper rolls. We send them bundles of our old cardboard scraps and they send back corrugated sheets that are then used to create new custom product packaging and displays. To further achieve maximum sustainability, we focus on producing “right-sized” packaging along with “ships in own container” packaging. We strive to manufacture custom eco-friendly shipping boxes that do not require an abundance of packing tape.
Whether custom subscription boxes, insulated shipping boxes, retail-ready packaging or corrugated boxes wholesale, custom sustainable industrial packaging fulfills logistical needs while serving as an extension of your brand. Regular-slotted container (RSC) boxes are common for shipping while roll end front tuck (REFT) boxes provide ease of assembly for retailers. Cardboard shipping boxes of varying size and shape are used for mailers and shippers within the beauty, electronics, food or consumer goods industries. Our ISTA testing approved, retail-ready industrial packaging serves a dual purpose: safely transporting products in custom eco-friendly cardboard boxes and arriving ready to display in the same biodegradable package.
To help you discover savings that may be hidden in your custom packaging design and processes, we offer a no-cost comprehensive packaging assessment. Reap the benefits of partnering with an environmentally friendly corrugated packaging provider who understands corrugated boxes, design principles, and the importance of quality and fast delivery.

POP and POS Displays
Point-of-purchase (POP) displays and point-of-sale (POS) displays are in-store fixtures that display products. Point-of-sale (POS) displays are highly effective for driving impulse buys and connecting with consumers to create a brand experience at major retailers such as Best Buy, Home Depot, Target, Walmart and more. Our temporary, semi-permanent and permanent in-store POP displays range from trend pods to floor displays to skinny towers to trains with artistic, unique headers. Brands can display multiple product types, introduce a new product or feature seasonal promotions with our custom retail POP displays. Our point-of-purchase displays can feature mixed materials, in-store product samples or add creative touches to pallet displays. Floor displays, counter displays, pallet headers and endcaps can be made of a variety of materials such as corrugate, acrylic, UltraBoard, PVC, wood and many more. Acting as an in-store billboard, power wings, standees and club skirts for pallet displays communicate brand messaging and product information with high-quality graphics. Our POP displays maximize retail floor space, elevate your branding and save stocking time.
Retail packaging is easy to shelve, identify and shop. This secondary packaging is used to hold and protect the branded product at major retailers such as Walmart, Kroger, Target, Costco and more. Custom packaging for retail is shelf-ready revealing product or creating a corrugated display with ease. From folding cartons with windows for product visibility to custom gift sets to Reverse Tuck End boxes (RTE), retail packaging for cosmetics, electronics or special promotional products come in different varieties. Peruse our retail packaging that creates a memorable brand experience in-store.
Signage is a simple and creative way to advertise, promote and call the consumer to action. Publicly displayed signs can be seen in retail hanging in aisles or on side panels, at restaurants, outside events, and on walls and windows as banners.
POP signage can share your branding, inform your customer about your products, promotions and services or direct your customer.
Signage can be placed in convenience stores, restaurants, grocery stores, retailers, schools and any other location to educate or convince the consumer. Backlit signage details can illuminate your branding and draw more customer eye’s to your signage. Dimensional signage adds depth and texture to your branding and messaging. Event signage can be directional or informative for attendees.
With a huge variation in materials available, finding the perfect sign for your needs will depend on the goal of your efforts. Some important factors to consider when deciding on signage are:
The look you are trying to achieve
Installation – whether the signage will be mounted, hung or standing
Indoor or outdoor environment
If it will be temporarily or permanently displayed
Signage offerings include:
A-Frame (Sandwich) Boards
Specialty Items and Set Up Boxes
Special packaging and POP displays are used for media kits, tradeshows or interactive purposes. High-end products or gift items are best featured in corrugated or mixed materials such as set-up boxes. Seen at retailers or sent directly to consumers, slide boxes or packaging enhanced by Augmented Reality can create custom experiences for consumers and drive them back into stores to purchase your products. These types of specialty packaging are referred to as experiential packaging due to the immersive brand experience provided by product demonstrations or custom views of products. Gift boxes and custom box kits provide a personal touch for your messaging and products. Find more of our offerings and what Augmented Reality can do for your POP displays and corrugated packaging below.
Packaging is often the first thing a consumer sees – which is why having eye-catching graphics and well-designed structure is important.
You want to make a good first impression and pique the interest of potential buyers! Consistent and appealing packaging also helps in establishing brand recognition and consumer loyalty.
Not only that, but shipping fragile, temperature sensitive products like wine can be daunting. In addition to manufacturing creative packaging, we also ensure the structural integrity of our packaging.
With in-house ISTA testing, a series of tests that simulate conditions packages can experience during transportation, we can ensure the packaging will protect wine bottles during transit.
With over 50 wine packaging and shipping projects in our portfolio, our partners turn to us for solutions that not only include beautiful graphics, safe arrival, but also are environmentally friendly (90% post-consumer material and 100% recyclable!).
Take a look at just some of our wine projects that have enhanced the visual appeal of the brand and influenced a wine-drinker’s purchase decision.
