You need boxes? We’ve got excellent quality corrugated boxes at competitive prices. You want Halloween costumes? We have boxes. Fun fact: with a little creative imagination, boxes make for some pretty awesome costumes! Bypass a store bought costume and reach for a new or used McLeish box this Halloween. Corrugated costume fashions never looked so good and never held up so well.

Custom & Costume Design

You would hardly think McLeish Corr-A-Box was into costume design. We are not, but we do design and manufacture top quality corrugated boxes that not only satisfy our customers’ needs, they continue on to have an adventure of their own. If not immediately recycled after their initial intended use, our boxes have found themselves the recipient of many an imagination. In a creative costume pinch, some boxes become airplanes, fire trucks, train engines, race cars and buses for many children to trick-o-treat in. With scissors, tape and some paint, a child can be transformed into a robot, SpongeBob, a Rubik’s cube, a washing machine, a box of popcorn, a stove, an old school television set… the possibilities are endless.

Does This Box Make Me Look Fat?

Even teenagers and adults can get in the box. Imagine becoming a packaged Barbie doll, a giant Lego block, a vending machine, a jack-in-the-box, a kissing booth… again, the creations are only up to your imagination. As with our corrugated boxes, you can easily purchase standard basics directly from our catalogue or you can unleash your creative imagination and we can custom design the structure and graphics to suit your needs to a ‘T’.

Fun Facts

It’s a fact that you can employ your imagination and forego the purchase of a costume by reaching for a good quality corrugated box like the ones we produce at McLeish. Here are a few other fun facts about boxes that you may find interesting:

– The box was born/invented in England in 1817. It was the first paperboard box available commercially.
