Shipping Boxes for Clothes

What are the best packaging boxes for shipping clothes? Hands down, the C-series box is the ideal clothing box, whether you ship bulky jackets or silky scarves.

The C-series box is a corrugated cardboard self locking box with side dust flaps and a roll end front tuck that folds from the top to securely close. Rather than two flaps meeting in the middle to close with the help of tape, the C-series has a single flap that folds down over the top and locks into the front of the box. 

C-series boxes are different than some other shipping boxes in that they require a cutting die. Custom Boxes Now carries a few standard cutting dies, so it’s worth asking about our sizing options if you’re interested. If tooling is required, meaning the box has to be cut, there will be an additional charge. However, this charge is usually a one-time fee, as long as you don’t change the size of your box.
