Project Description

I do a lot of work for food and beverage companies, so I wanted a promo mailer that could represent that without being alienating to potential clients outside of that industry. Pizza is universally loved and frequently delivered, so a pizza box was the clear choice. I experimented with making a "wheel" or "disc" portfolio to mimic the shape of a pizza pie, but ultimately, a coupon booklet provided the most space for showing work.

The boxes are packed with red, yellow, and green crinkle shred—€”mimicking sauce, cheese, and basil—a coupon book, a pizza slice vinyl sticker, and a business card. The box is then sealed with USPS-approved adhesive wafer seals. The shipping label is affixed to the bottom of the box. I'm in Atlanta, and I shipped a box to a friend in San Francisco and one to a friend in Boston to make sure they would arrive not-crushed—€”and hallelujah they made it. The boxes ship within the US for less than $3 and usually arrive within 2–3 days.

Production Lesson(s)

There is almost no perfect registration on a pizza box, but pizza boxes can ship through the post and remain whole and intact on the journey. ”
