Choosing the Right Box Size

Did you know that major carrier services like UPS and FedEx use dimensional weight, otherwise known as DIM, to determine postage costs?. By choosing the right box size for your shipment, you could potentially save thousands of dollars every year in shipping costs. By decreasing the cost of shipping, your business may be able to provide free shipping to your customers and simultaneously increase your bottom line.

Stock Boxes

If your merchandise fits into typically sized boxes, you can order stock boxes in bulk. Our stock boxes come in sizes as small as 3 inches long by 2 inches wide by 3 inches high and as large as 37 inches long by 19 inches wide by 24 1/8 inches high. Stock boxes are available as regular slotted containers (RSC), full overlap slotted containers (FOL), die cut, and sheets.

Custom Boxes

In order to prevent shipping merch no andise in an ill fitted box, many businesses will opt for custom boxes. At Express Packaging,t you can mix and match different custom boxes in your order. We have several custom boxes that may be cut to the size you need, including the five-panel folder center flap, a one-piece folder, and the full overlap slotted container.

Flexographic Printing

When you need display boxes, we provide custom boxes with flexographic printing. Your image is laser engraved on printing plates, which are set on large drums. As the cardboard goes through the line, the plates print your image onto the boxes at a high rate of speed, and then they go through the process of being cut into the size and type of box you requested. This is a low-cost way to present your brand to the recipient of your merchandise, no matter the size of the box.

Visit Express Packaging

Save money on shipping your merchandise by ordering boxes that are the correct size for the items you are shipping and the filler used to protect those items. Allow 2 to 6 inches for the filler, depending on the item you are shipping. Fragile items need more filler between the item and the box so that your items do not get dinged, scratched, or broken in the event that the carrier mishandles the box.
