Where Small Businesses Buy Packaging Supplies

Where are small businesses buying packaging supplies? It’s a good question, and a lot of people seem to be asking this. Many are buying them from a combination of retailers that range from office supply stores to warehouse clubs, online suppliers, and even convenience stores such as Walgreens or CVS.

Why do they buy there? Many businesses might tell you it’s a combination of convenience and price. They don’t, however, know what they are missing by not working with a specialty packaging supplier that offers everything in one place.

Others do know, and they purchase their supplies from us here at Pinnacle Packaging. We think the better question is, “Why are small businesses buying packaging supplies from Pinnacle Packaging?”

Here are the top reasons why small (and large) businesses choose Pinnacle Packaging over the others:


As someone who has been immersed in the packaging industry for many years, I know how to help you navigate the staggering number of options you have, from brands to sizing, color, and functionality. Even more, I often find solutions for my clients’ challenges in creative ways that still meet budget constraints.


It’s not unusual for a client to have a unique situation that gives them a headache—until they give me a call. I love providing my clients with options that are a better pain reliever than Advil. Sometimes a custom solution is needed for a particular product line, while other times, it’s for a single item that needs attention which could include custom crating and shipping. We also offer custom packaging solutions for boxes, sheets, tubes, foam, and more.


Branding is integral to marketing your products, including packaging. We offer clients an extensive list of options in this area, from custom printing logos, QR codes, website addresses, and much more on shipping boxes, tapes, envelopes, tissue paper, etc. The options are almost endless and limited only by your imagination.


Did you know there are thousands of different boxes you can purchase? We offer more than 170 different corrugated boxes in our catalog. That doesn’t include the many other types of boxes we sell. The same can be said for tape, papers, cushioning products, mailers, and cable ties. The list could go on and on. Sometimes it’s hard to know which is the best for your needs when you have so many choices. This is when my expertise allows me to single out the best options for you, and often is quite different than what clients have in mind. This helps save you time, money, and aggravation.


We work with many different vendors, allowing us to find what you need when you need it—within reason. Supply chain issues continue to cause difficulties, but we can tell you how much lead time is necessary, so you get your items in time. Planning is the key, and we can help you with this.


Instead of ordering three things from one place, two from another, and a bulk order with a third, why not shop with a small business that can provide everything you need? Knowing you have an expert contact who can order all the packaging supplies you need gives you peace of mind instead of costing you the extra time to dig through invoices searching for the one order that hasn’t arrived yet.


Are we the cheapest? Probably not. However, we work hard to be competitive and offer exceptional value you won’t find elsewhere. We would love for you to give us a try and become part of the Pinnacle family.
