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.

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.
