Corrugated Mailing Boxes
More than just a cardboard box--stock custom corrugated mailing boxesIn a business that ships or transports goods, chances are you need to stock corrugated mailing boxes. Mailing boxes often make the first impression for your business, so you want your boxes to reflect your professionalism and attention to detail. Customers appreciate their shipments arriving in great condition with the packaging intact, so your corrugated mailing boxes should be strong and well packed. You can get them in Brown Kraft, plain white or have them custom imprinted as a moving advertisement for your business. Corrugated boxes for mailing come in all shapes and sizes, or have them custom made. Consider ordering in bulk to reduce costs.
When choosing mailing boxes, consider:
1. Size and shape--stock all the sizes you may need according to the space you have and your budget. You need a space devoted to keeping corrugated mailers neat and sorted, such as under the counter or in overhead bins.
2. Strength--corrugated packaging comes in lots of different weights, from single-weight to more than 200-pound test strength.
3. Specialty--get corrugated shipping boxes designed for video tapes, compact disks, maps or other roll goods, sensitive instruments or fragile items.
