When deciding on packaging for your business, it’s easy to get so hung up on the design of the box itself that you completely overlook the actual type of box that will best suit your products. But the type of box you select is just as important as the images you print on the outside.
There’s a lot that goes into determining what type of box is best for your needs, but first, you should try to understand the differences between chipboard vs corrugated boxes so you can decide which one will work best for your business.
When people think of the term “cardboard box,” more often than not, they’re actually envisioning corrugated boxes. If the box you’re picturing has fluted, fan-like folds pressed between two sturdy layers of cardboard, then surprise! That’s a corrugated box, and you’ve just learned a new industry term.
Most often, corrugated boxes are used to ship bulky and heavier items or fragile items that need more protection, as the folds provide extra strength for durability and safety. Corrugated cardboard is also the material that product displays are generally made out of, since they can handle stacked loads and are durable enough to withstand the normal wear and tear that comes with life in a popular store.
It doesn’t matter what the size of your company or the nature of your brand is, you know that showing environmental awareness isn’t just good for the earth, it’s also great PR. Take a look at what you can do to reduce your impact on the environment and communicate your stance to your customers. It’s time to really look at how you can go green with environmentally friendly packaging.
First, a hard truth: it’s important to understand that much of the packaging out there that claims to be “made from recycled materials” or “totally recyclable” isn’t always what you think. Sometimes this packaging isn’t exclusively repurposed waste, or it may not even be able to be completely reused. Since different types of plastics must be separated, your best bet to get as close to “100% recyclable” as possible is to opt for cardboard packaging and boxes. As our custom boxes are made from cardboard, we’re proud to say that Custom Boxes Now’s boxes are indeed 100% recyclable.
