HOW STRONG IS A HEAVY DUTY CARDBOARD BOX?

June 24, 2014 Tuesday. Tags:


HEAVY DUTY CARDBOARD BOX

 

Most of us don’t think of Cardboard Boxes as being the ‘strongest’ packaging option for shipping our goods.

Whilst you can get plywood and timber boxes made, you could be surprised at the overall weight a cardboard box can hold. In fact, many years ago, Cardboard boxes were actually produced in an attempt to replace wooden boxes entirely!

 

CARDBOARD BOX

Like most things, the choice depends on what you’re looking for. The material you use might be based on personal preference or packaging standards from the receiver and the country they’re in.

But don’t be fooled into thinking cardboard isn’t strong enough. Multiple layers of Corrugated board can be fused together to produce a ‘tri-wall’ material, this can be just as strong as a piece of timber.

HOW MUCH DOES A CARDBOARD BOX COST?

June 17, 2014 Tuesday.

CARDBOARD BOX

 

The cost of Packaging can be left till last and as a result most will underestimated what this cost will be. The way you’re going to package your products shouldn’t be the last thing on your mind, it can be just as important as the product its self.

A Cardboard Box can be quite cheap, but it depends on Material.

 CARDBOARD BOX

If you’re looking for a cheap cardboard box (which most people are), then you should stick with an RSC (Regular Slotted Carton). This standard style doesn’t involve any tooling and can be made quite cheaply.

An A4 size box might set you back $0.60 – $1.00 depending on the quantity and board.

 

CARDBOARD BOX

The most common box people call asking for is a Die Cut Box. You wont need packaging tape, they’re well presented and make for an awesome gift box BUT you will be up for tooling.

This can be anything from $800 and run into the $1000′s just to set to box up. Then the unit cost will vary but for about an A4 size, you’re likely to pay over $2 a unit.

 

DIE CUT BOX

 

The other end of the spectrum is a Large Heavy Duty Box, made with multiple layers of corrugated board to hold 10kgs +.

You can buy cardboard boxes that can hold the same amount of weight as a timber box…. This style will see you paying upwards from $10-$15 a unit..

 

CARDBOARD BOX

As you can see, answering this question is quite subjective, there are a number of questions that need to be answered to determine what the cost will be for the box you’re looking for.

To make it easier for you, pick up the phone or fire off an email to one of our professional Cardboard Sales Consultants. They will take you through the process and give you a recommendation based on the budget you  need to meet.

While there’s no doubt this popular design known as a “roll over with tuck in ears” looks great.

It carries a premium cost for your first order. If you’re in your set up phase of your business, juggling this sort of capital outlay is the last thing you need.
