Visit Rio's website for a huge selection of paper boxes that you can personalize with Impressions!

Etsy. Artfire. Your own jewelry website. If you have an online business in one—or all—of these places on the web, you’ve created a grand invitation to the world of online shoppers. Congratulations, that’s huge! With a heroic push, you’ve established your business, and now you’re doing everything you can to keep it up: taking your vitamins, replenishing your inventory, fussing over product photos, and shipping on time.

You’re keeping the doors of your business wide open, welcoming customers at any hour of the day or night.  Like a sleepless new parent, you’re listening for fresh sales notifications on your smart phone instead of dozing off. You’re on top of every detail.  Now, let us help you add a little polish.

Follow-Through: The Branded Box. This is where Rio Grande’s Impressions™ Personalizing Service comes in. Our hot-stamping service brings the branding from your website to your packaging, including the box that carries your jewelry to your customer’s doorstep. It makes a polished, professional impression. Here’s what it requires: Send us your logo, and we’ll apply it to packaging that reflects your style, your palette, and your name. It’s that simple. Here are more reasons to try Impressions:

  1. Timing is everything. On your first order, after we ensure that your logo will stamp well, we'll hot foil stamp and ship your personalized packaging to you in 2-3 weeks. On all subsequent orders, we already have your stamping plate on file and can personalize boxes from our warehouse for you in 1-2 weeks.     
  2. Order the amount you need. You don’t have to order 500 or 1,000 boxes. Many of our hot-stampable boxes can be ordered in minimum quantities of 20 or 100.
  3. Our inventory is ready and waiting. We offer our boxes in dozens of colors, and we have a huge inventory that we keep stocked so you don’t have to wait. Because we have our shelves fully-stocked with jewelry packaging, you can order at the last minute if you need to.
  4. Our boxes fit your shipping envelopes and boxes. Our many box sizes mean that you can both accommodate your jewelry and fit your personalized boxes into the shipping parcels that make sense for your business.

The following video gives you a tour of our Impressions™ personalization options. It describes how to prepare your logo for our hot stamping team.

We want you to succeed and also get some sleep. Visit Impressions on our website or give us a call at 1.800.545.6566, and let us take your jewelry packaging to a polished and professional finish with no-fuss. Now you can concentrate on other business tasks (or at least get some shut eye). Comment here with your questions, and we’ll be happy to get back to you right away about how to personalize your own packaging and make a great impression on your customers!

Here at Rio, we all strive to do business in ways that honor our customers, community, environment, and one another. Saul Bell founded the company back in 1944 as a small family-run business and, though it has grown to have more than 300 employees and is now a proud member of the Berkshire-Hathaway family of companies, the company is still run by members of the Bell family, and it still feels like a family affair. Recently, we were surprised and elated to be recognized by The Samaritan Counseling Center as a recipient of one of its 15th Annual New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards. The award is based on “high standards and exemplary practices,” something Rio Grande strives for every day of the year.
