Three Reasons Why Boxes Support the Environment

Supporting the environment is a really good thing to do that every business and company should support. Supporting the environment helps you gain customers, especially long-term customers, helps you lower costs long-term due to the increased efficiency of your recycling efforts, and helps you increase profits, as everyone likes environmentally-friendly businesses.

When creating packaging material like corrugated cardboard, much care and effort is put into environmentally-friendly practices, like recycling used containers, as well as re-stocking logged forest lands with more trees so that, in the future, logging companies can continue to harvest trees, turn them into paper, and turn that paper into cardboard boxes.

Made from Renewable Resources

A lot of packaging materials today are made from non-renewable resources. Styrofoam peanuts, metal casing, and more all exist in finite capacities. Even so, it takes a lot of labor in order to extract such materials from the Earth, to create or mold them in a factory, and to ship them to a processing plant in order to create packaging materials.

Renewable resources are important to ensuring that the packaging industry not only protects the environment, but conserves it as well. Using resources like trees is key to creating affordable packaging from a seemingly-infinite renewable resource. Since the productions of boxes start in paper mills, they are a great packaging option for any company that wants to do their part to protect ad cherish planet Earth.

When lumber companies take trees out of the forest, they also plant more in their place. In fact, lumber and logging companies, opposite of their stereotype, do lots to protect the planet, even if it is to protect their future investment. After all, if they cut down all the trees, there will not be any [...]

The Secret Power of Corrugated Boxes Lies in their Manufacturing Process

Corrugated boxes look so simple when we see them in the supermarket, or at the electronics store, or anywhere you might find products with corrugated packaging. However, the manufacturing process can be quite complex, even though most people think that the end product is bland. The manufacturing process, which provides boxes with their strength and durability, is very interesting.

Beyond being just interesting, the process of corrugation and of creating cardboard is necessary to understanding the final product. The positive attributes that we find in cardboard are a direct result of the manufacturing process. Learning the process is vital to appreciating the value that cardboard provides us when we determine the best method to ship products and goods to customers and clients locally, nationally, and internationally.
The Beginning
Cardboard starts in a paper mill. Brown kraft paper is layered, crimped, and glued together. The end result is corrugated cardboard, which is the base material that corrugated boxes are made of. The cardboard is then cut into shape, custom printed, folded, and glued together to form the familiar box shape that we know of when we see the final product.

Finished boxes are then bound together with plastic or some other material and shipped to the customer that ordered them. This whole process is fascinating, even more so when you consider that most people have no idea how much time and effort goes into creating a cardboard box, and how efficient and useful the box becomes as a result of this process.
The Middle
Once the corrugated boxes are shipped to the customer, they are used to package and ship products safely locally, nationally and internationally. Again, these boxes are so durable and strong due to their [...]

5 Things to Look for When Buying Boxes for Your Business

When creating a company, you must develop your brand, a logo, your products, and how you will ship them. While branding is imperative to the success of your company, so are the boxes that you ship your products in.

The modern marketplace is extremely competitive and most of your competition is willing to undercut you to get a sale. With that in mind, it is becoming increasingly important for you to ship your products in high quality boxes.

But, what makes a good box? Here are 5 things to look for when sourcing boxes for your business.

1. Box Shape

This one goes without saying. Every product requires a specific type of box to ship it. If your product stacks nicely, classic rectangle corrugated boxes may be best for you.

If you are shipping a canned product, a corrugated tray may be the best option.

Corrugated boxes come in all shapes and forms and most packaging companies are ready to help you choose a box that perfectly suits your product.

2. Box Durability

Durability goes a long way in the world of shipping. No one remembers when their package arrives in its proper condition, but everyone remembers when they receive a damaged product.

When sourcing boxes for your business, you want to place a premium on durability and make sure that they will survive the rough shipping process.

The most important thing you can do is check the weight thresholds that the boxes are capable of withstanding and seeing how your specific box performs in an edge crush test.


3. Types of Lid / Seal

Some products require boxes with special flaps, lids, or seals. The average corrugated box is closed with traditional flaps that are taped shut.

However, other forms of boxes have overhead tuck tops, [...]

4 Reasons Why Quality Corrugated Boxes Still Matter in 2017

It may be 2017, but corrugated boxes continue to be one of the most important COGS purchases that a business can make.

Think about it, every day, boxes are used to ship millions of products across the world. Amazon, the world’s leader in online sales, shipped a staggering 1.6 million packages per day and around 608 million in 2016.

Your Reputation Ships with Your Corrugated Boxes

This may seem like a silly statement, but it is exactly the opposite. When you ship a product, your customers expect it to arrive on time and in good shape. If your products are arriving damaged because you elected to buy a large quantity of low quality corrugated boxes, your customers will shop elsewhere because they will assume that your products are cheap.

In 2017, you cannot afford to lose customers because you shipped your products in inferior corrugated boxes. Make sure you ship your products right the first time in order to avoid any embarrassing returns and disputes.

Free Advertising

When you ship products in corrugated boxes, you control the advertising medium. How many random boxes do you see in a given day? Probably a lot, and all of those boxes are decked out in free advertising for the company that shipped them.

Take advantage of this easy method of advertising by planting your company logo and contact details on all corrugated boxes you ship. Even after the boxes have completed their shipping lifecycle, they may still live on and be used by other people that need boxes for moving and storage, and the first thing they will see when they use your box is your company and products.

Do not underestimate the value of planting your brand in the subconscious of your customers. The [...]
