Display Basics - Lesson 3: Considerations for Your Shipping Boxes

By , Designer for Creative Displays Now

Note: This is the third in a series of articles ("Lessons") covering the basics of corrugated displays and boxes. Click here to see all of the lessons we have published.

Almost everything we buy gets shipped somehow, somewhere in a box. There are hundreds of thousands of different products out there, just like there are different boxes for each one of those items.

Here is a list of a few things for you to think about before shipping your product, which will help us customize your box to ensure safe delivery of your products.

  1. What is going in the box; what is the size of product?
  2. How many of this product will go into the box?
  3. How is it going to ship: UPS, FEDEX or Truck Line?
  4. Is the box shipping by itself, on a pallet, or double stacked?
  5. Will it be stacked in a warehouse? If so, approximately how long?

Our partner site, Custom Boxes Now, offers a nice online configuration tool that allows you to select from different box styles and strengths while seeing pricing in real-time. There is also a Shipping Box Help Center that addresses many aspects of designing and manufacturing shipping boxes.

Display Basics - Lesson 2: How to Measure a Box

In the corrugated world we use Length, Width and Depth to measure cartons and displays. The length would also be known as the left to right dimension and is longer than the width side of the box. The width would be the front to back and the depth is top to bottom. This not only goes for boxes but also any product dimensions you may give us. We use L x W x D no matter what style of box you would be looking for.

How to measure a shipping box

A box has an inside dimension (ID) and an outside dimension (OD). Accurate inside dimensions are important to ensure proper fit of your product. Just the same, outside dimensions are important for shipping and palletizing purposes.

When referring to blank sheet sizes or a pad, the first number is always the way of the corrugation direction no matter which dimension is larger. So, let’s say you are looking for a pad that is 28” x 40”? The 28” will be considered the width of the sheet and the 40” will be the length of the sheet. Also referred to W x L. An easy way to remember this is W standing for "Way of Corrugation".

Display Basics - Lesson 1: What is Corrugated Fiberboard?

By , Designer for Creative Displays Now

Note: This is the first in a series of articles ("Lessons") covering the basics of corrugated displays and boxes. Click here to see all of the lessons we have published.

Corrugated is the material with which boxes are made. You know the ones: the large refrigerator boxes you played with as a kid, moving boxes, and even that blue crate your Cuties come in. What corrugated is NOT is cardboard, chipboard, or cereal box material.

Cereal Box is not Corrugated

Corrugated is made out of an outside liner, the medium, and the inside liner. The liners are what we see. Liners can be left natural, which would be kraft or a type of white paper. They can also be printed and labeled but that’s a whole other lesson! The medium is the fluted material between the liners and that comes in a variety of different size flutes depending on the application and strength you need it for.

Common Board Styles

Single Face:
One medium is glued to one flat sheet of linerboard.

single face corrugated

Single Wall:
The medium is between two sheets of linerboard. Also known as Double Face.

single wall corrugated

Double Wall:
Three sheets of linerboard with two mediums in between.

Double Wall Corrugated

Triple Wall:
Four sheets of linerboard with three mediums in between.

Triple Wall Corrugated

Flutes

Corrugated Flutes

Flutes are what make up the medium. It is paper curved by the corrugator and then starched into place onto the liners. The flutes give the strength or cushion to your box. They come in various “standard” sizes. A, B, C, E, F and last of all N (not shown) which is the smallest of all the flutes and not as common as the rest.

Different flutes can be combined together into one piece of board. For example, that large refrigerator box you used to play with was most likely a B/C Double wall board. Two flutes combined together is considered double wall and 3 flutes combined together is triple wall. The flute letter that comes first is the flute that will be on the outside of the board.
