Worked with John Boldt at BoldtSmith on a design project recently.  Couldn't be more satisfied with the process and results!  I will definitely recommend BoldtSmith and will not hesitate to work with them in the future.

Our goal was to get from failing ISTA 3 to passing ISTA 6A.  The proposed package does that and is more compact.  What was to be only a packaging improvement has become a huge DTV for Broan due to the 25% more per pallet.  Some of the M-Can production is moving to our Mexico facility.  The shipping savings will be in the 100's of thousands.

My company recently worked in collaboration with BoldtSmith on a packaging design project and it went very well right from the beginning. The project itself required a lot of attention to detail due to the packaging and protection requirements that were necessary. I worked with Max from their team and he did a fantastic job executing on all levels. All of the work was done in a timely, professional and satisfactory manner. I would highly recommend their design and consulting services!

Videojet Technologies

BoldtSmith has been a great partner throughout the design process. They are extremely responsive to their customers’ needs. We had a product form factor change that resulted in a need to change our packaging design. Within one day they had a prototype to us, and within less than four days they were able to test the new design to ISTA standards. After less than a week we had a fully validated updated design with drawings and artwork. This was critical to keep our project on schedule.

Working with BoldtSmith Packaging has been a real pleasure. Their knowledge and expertise are second to none. They have helped to bring our ideas to life and find an excellent solution to our costly and inefficient process. John’s expertise in corrugated displays was critical in the design phase. He provided excellent guidance on how to get optimal savings and reduced our individual component inventory while keeping structural integrity top of mind. BoldtSmith Packaging was extremely helpful and always hands-on from conception through to delivery. We are already utilizing them for another project and will continue to trust in them for future packaging projects.

Dustin Smith is a knowledgeable, innovative, self-starter with a positive professional attitude. His ideas/design contributions, combined with his ability to work with our suppliers and top customers are a true testament to his wide-ranging skill set. He is able to implement cost-effective packaging, listens to all requests for changes, and has the ability to communicate with me every step of the process; this encompasses his true character and interpersonal skills. I Would highly recommend his services for any packaging-related project and will continue to work with him again and again.

BoldtSmith Packaging was a pleasure to work with. We needed a packaging consultant for a project on short notice, and they were able to deliver. The team was clear about their capabilities and how we’d integrate with our internal teams and manufacturers. We’d appreciated their timely status updates and open communication.

We had a great experience working with BoldtSmith Packaging on this project.  The project team adapted well to some changes and provided us everything we needed.  Communication was great through this entire project.  We had weekly meetings and were notified if anything changed with the packaging design.  The Winston Team appreciates all the help and would gladly send a recommendation for BoldtSmith Packaging.
