What Are Shipping Boxes?
Shipping boxes are cardboard packaging boxes that are used by online retailers to ship products to customers. They are crafted from 1/8” corrugated cardboard and are fully recyclable, making them perfect for everyday product shipping. Shipping boxes protect bulky or fragile items during a rough and tumble shipping process and are the most durable and heavy duty boxes we offer. Businesses personalize their boxes with custom logos and graphics, as well as marketing messages to help customers connect with their brand.
We offer our custom shipping boxes in Kraft and White colors so you can choose the best option for your design. If you are designing using bright colors, we recommend choosing the White option because the white background makes the colors appear more vibrant. The Kraft color option is best if you are designing with dark colors or are positioning your brand for a more natural appearance. Both shipping box styles are fully sustainable and 100% recyclable.

Benefits of Custom Shipping Boxes
Printed shipping boxes are used in all industries by businesses ranging from large to small. They are becoming more popular as companies transition to online sales and are looking to expand a branding connection with their customers.
Improves the Shopping Experience
Not only does custom packaging strengthen the brand value, it also improves the shopping experience for the customer. Unlike plain cardboard packaging, custom shipping boxes create a more memorable unboxing experience and are more likely to create a lasting impression on the customer. When a customer orders a product from your business, they receive more than just a package; they receive a brand experience.
Durable & Sustainable Shipping Options
Protect your fragile and bulky items with heavy-duty printed shipping boxes. Compared to our paperboard cartons and corrugated mailer boxes, our shipping boxes offer the most protection and are the economical choice for large or bulky items. They come reinforced with 1/8” B-flute corrugated cardboard and are designed to absorb any impacts during the shipping process. They are also 100% recyclable making them a fully sustainable shipping option.
Find the Exact Size For Your Brand
For online retailers, an important aspect of business is to ensure products get delivered to customers safely without any damage. Choosing the right box size and style can greatly improve the safety and security of your products through a rough-and-tumble shipping process. Finding the correct box size can not only ensure a safe delivery but also can dramatically improve shipping costs.
We offer no minimum orders for our custom shipping boxes so you can test the best size and style for your products before placing a large order. We offer 8 standard size options and custom size options. If you are interested in custom sizes, please contact our customers service team for more information.
