Frequently Asked Questions

How would box sleeves benefit my products?


Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t even bother ordering. Find another company Honestly if I could give uprinting no stars I would. Let’s begin with the first order, which I gave myself ample time knowing my deadlines so I would have time to adjust and fix any discrepancies if there’s any. I’ve done many research and for all the great reviews so I’ve chose to work with uprinting. Now at first the live chat was super responsive. I wasn’t sure what exact product I needed for my current project so I did what any other customer do and asked a printing specialist. I was very detailed in what I needed so they recommended me the packaging sleeve. (Which should’ve been the box sleeve instead.) Upon receiving the order few days later I was in disbelief of my order. The packaging sleeve was literally glossy printing paper with nothing to attached to the end. Let alone my design that I’ve submitted is not properly centered after I’ve countless time asked for them for help with the die lines as well to make sure. One of them also said they can’t help me with that which I don’t understand how are you a specialist for a printing company but doesn’t know about how the product and dielines work. Now after reaching out to a order specialist. Courtney basically said we asked for this product so they are not liable even though regardless of the terrible quality the print job was still “correct” under their discretion and even though they recommended the wrong product anyways. They gave us a credit as a courtesy for the inconvenience which I am still thankful for. We then proceeded to order the box sleeves. Now after the first experience I was super careful with the measurements to make sure it will fit over my box. I tripled check and even ask if I should add extra cm in order to make sure it fits they said no the box size would just be fine. Upon receiving the order the second time. We were super excited as our release date is coming up. Thinking it the box sleeve would fit, it didn’t. So I measure the sides of the sleeve and the measurements was incorrect. Missing by a few millimeters and that would’ve actually made the sleeve fit properly. So once again I reached out to customer service and they said there’s nothing they can do due to that it was within shifting tolerance which was not express to me either during the time I placed the second order. If I would’ve known I would’ve added extra cm/mm. Now I am left to find another printing company a week before my deadline on the 27th. I asked to speak to a different specialist and they just never answered back either. Would I ever recommend uprinting? Never. And I hope if you are reading this as a consumer you wouldn’t either unless you just want them to take your money and make any excuses they can.
