What is Disguise The Surprise®?

Disguise The Surprise is the ultimate gift packaging tool.  It is a set of reusable dividers used to quickly and effortlessly disguise or highlight a single gift or create sections to fill the entire box with gifts tailored to the recipient's interests.  The possibilities are endless, limited only by your creativity and imagination.

They are easy to assemble, sturdy and hold your gift in place (not like a gift bag where your present moves all around).  The long dividers have a hinge on one end that folds to fit in shorter shirt boxes.  The riser lifts shallow items and the buffers fill small gaps.  Each individual divider set includes 12 dividers (4 length, 4 width, 3 risers & 1 buffer strip) and a storage box to keep with your wrapping supplies.   

What types of gifts/products will this work for?

This will work for any item that would fit inside a shirt box.  The gifts can be slightly taller than the 2" box height, but the lid will simply not go all the way to the bottom, but it still works fine.  This is a perfect way  to disguise a cell phone, jewelry box, video game, DVD, man's tie, book...the list goes on!  You can fill the additional sections with items that will also fit inside of a shirt box.  To make it easy, we put together some suggestions for you, including pictures, so you can see how this works:

Will this work in any shirt box?

Unfortunately, not every shirt box is the same size.  The dividers fit the shirt boxes that we sell perfectly (15" x 9.5" x 2").  Some boxes are shorter in length (around 14.25" long).  The long dividers have a hinge on one end that folds to fit in shorter boxes.  It won't fit every shirt box out there, but it certainly gives you more options. 

Where are the products made?

The tool to make the plastic parts was made at Comet Die in Elmhurst, IL (just outside Chicago).  The dividers are manufactured in St. Louis, MO at MDS Manufacturing.  The plastic pieces are made with the injection mold process. The Disguise The Surprise® Company is located in St. Louis, MO.
