We joined this industry initially focused on just vape cartridges and vape batteries with our private label brand FourXX back in 2015. Our brand became highly successful on Amazon, before a terms of service update later that year banned all vape sales on the seller platform. Nevertheless, our strides with FourXX led to various requests for custom branded vapes, custom vape packaging, exit bags, and much more. The writing on the wall was clear and Custom 420 Supply was created to help cater to all types of custom packaging.
What separates us from our competitors is that our core team has years of prior experience and passion for growing and working with cannabis. We pride ourselves on our compliance and consulting knowledge which can be invaluable when it comes to staying up to date with various laws that are constantly changing.
We understand the buying trends of our customer’s end consumer and how these demographics have different purchasing criteria and factors that cater to them. Many of our competitors can produce packaging but have simply chased cannabis packaging as a vertical market. However, when push comes to shove, they do not understand how these items are being used in day-to-day life and therefore can often create a disconnect from product to consumer. If a product looks good but does not function properly then consumers are likely to take notice quickly.
Our combined backgrounds from digital marketing, branding, print, and sourcing; all while being MMJ patients and caregivers, have helped us to understand the ins and outs of the market from seed to sale. We pride ourselves on working hands on with clients to find the proper packaging solution for their needs. There is no such thing as a “one fits all” solution when it comes to this industry. But whether you need turn key packaging solutions or a small run of labels, we have got you covered!
