After spending decades in the corrugated box business servicing the big brands, owners Curt Stephens and Ward Hubbard saw industry consolidation that focused on the big brands. Small business was being left behind and these industry veterans knew they could fill the need. In 2015, they began building the platform that would become BoxUp. A DIY online tool put control in the hands of the small business and allowed them to order as many or as few as they needed. They didn’t need a graphic design degree or special software and they didn’t need to hold a big inventory of boxes. BoxUp makes custom packaging possible for small business in a way that no one has been able to deliver before now.
