I first heard of Lumi last year when I was working on our store, Freddie and Co. When I went to their site, I was amazed. The custom-packaging world isn’t generally the internet’s most stylish or functional space. Lumi is the exception. Their site is easy to navigate and full of nice photography that showcases all of your options. And the real cherry on top is the fact that you can upload your logos and see them mocked up on the various products in real time. If you’ve ever ordered custom packaging online, you know that this is not a thing anywhere else.
Co-founders Jesse Genet and Stephan Ango started Lumi with the intention of bridging the gap between packaging manufacturers and e-commerce businesses.
“The packaging industry is a bit old school. There are a lot of brokers and agents giving business to their friends,” Jesse says. “Our approach is more technology-forward and focuses on putting the entrepreneurs’ interests first.”
