# 1) Mailer Boxes. You can mail these as is or have them placed inside a regular cardboard shipping box to create a more premium unboxing experience. These range from $3-8 each depending on quantity and cardboard material and take 1-2 weeks to be manufactured and ready for shipping. You can simply upload your own logo or use an Adobe Illustrator template to customize the design and wrap the entire box (recommended).
