Stock Photos
We provide retailers with professional stock photos of our wholesale products. You will find the link to the photos, here. 

Photo Usage: Product photos are for use after a wholesale order has been placed. Changing or altering the photos in any way is not allowed. Using photos of our products for any reason (before an order has been placed) will result in the removal of your wholesale account (and access to the wholesale platform). 



Sample Boxes for Display
We would be happy to include a sample box in with your order so your customers can look at the box, feel the coins, and see what kinds of activities are included. In the notes section of your order, please let us know which sample box you would like. 



To protect our product as much as we can, we wrap each Idea Box in a 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable shrink wrap called Biolefin. Biolefin does not convert into micro plastics but breaks down into harmless elements and biomass, instead of micro-pollutants. You can read more about Biolefin, here. 



Are Idea Boxes really handmade?
Yes! We design and physically make each Idea Box, by hand. So much so, that the actual box that you hold in your hand has been die cut (by us) using a hand-cranked roller and a custom designed (by us) metal die. We then seal up the edges and hand wrap both the lid and the bottom of the box. We also hand die cut and glue the inner box that temporarily holds the coins inside the box. We love creating and manufacturing Idea Boxes!
