The Best Boxes for Packaging

Not all boxes are the same and when it comes to packaging your product it is essential that you choose the correct boxes for packaging. Not only does the packaging protect your product, but it also sends a message to the consumer about your company. If you choose the wrong packaging, your product could arrive damaged and will give your customer a bad impression about you and could impact future sales. Your packaging can also serve to advertise your product on store shelves and well as through the shipping and delivery process.

The type of packaging you choose will depend on your product and the intended use of the package. If your product will be stacked on store shelves, a corrugated packaging box would likely be your packaging choice because the design of the box can protect your product from being crushed. Corrugated packaging boxes can be a double-wall or single-wall structure. Single-wall is excellent for shipping while double-wall protects your product if it will be stacked. The flute of the corrugated packaging box helps to protect your product and can also determine the space it will take up, the style of box that can be created and the printing surface of the box. The flute you choose will lend itself to stand-up displays, shipping uses and point of purchase packaging.

Other types of boxes for packaging include corrugated plastic, paperboard, wood and chipboard all of which can be customized for your product. Whether you want a standard box or a die cut box in a specific design, we can handle your order. Your product’s weight, size and shape will help determine the packaging that is right for you. It isn’t difficult to determine the type of box you want for packaging as some types of boxes lend themselves for certain types of products. For example, if you are shipping bottles of wine, you would likely want a wood box imprinted with your company’s logo. You wouldn’t package software in a box that traditionally would hold a doll.

Corrugated plastic is a good choice if you want your packaging to be moisture resistant. Corrugated plastic has a longer shelf life than cardboard and is waterproof. It is also silk screened instead of litho-laminated. Paperboard, on the other hand, is not as durable as corrugated plastic or cardboard and is better suited for gift boxes and brochure holders.

Chipboard is an eco-friendly type of box for packaging. It is made from several pieces of recycled paper that are glued together to form one large piece of material. The application of a strong adhesive ensures durability and a smooth texture. It can be customized to display text and graphics and is lightweight resulting in reduced shipping costs.
