Note: This is the second in a series of articles (“Lessons”) covering the basics of corrugated displays and boxes.
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.
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”.
Corrugated board is a popular material used to construct boxes and display structures. As a multi-layered structure, it’s comprised of an outside liner, a fluted medium layer and an inside liner. Thanks to this design, it’s a fantastic option for crafting sturdy yet lightweight boxes that leave plenty of room for customization. Let’s dive into the many benefits of using custom corrugated material as your in-store display solution.
What Sets Corrugated Cardboard Product Displays Apart?
When it comes to retail display structures, businesses have plenty of options to choose from. Wood, metal, wire, plastic — the list goes on. So what makes corrugated display board such a popular choice?
1. Environmentally Friendly Design
Sustainability ranks increasingly high on the average consumer’s priority list. Choosing a corrugated display is a visible way to demonstrate your commitment to going green. Corrugated cardboard displays are made of 100% recyclable products and up to 95% post-consumer waste. This composition will enable you to upgrade your retail sales and display efforts while minimizing landfill waste and impressing customers. It’s a win on all fronts.
2. Diverse Customization Options
Think of a custom corrugated display box as a blank canvas for your business. Beyond presenting a specific product, corrugated displays offer a high potential to enhance your brand awareness. You can customize your box to suit your product packaging, including mixing up the sizes and shapes for maximum storage space. Custom options will allow you to bend, cut and configure each display to match your vision.
Most significantly, you can customize your corrugated display to reflect what sets your brand apart. Add some creative flair or a signature color scheme. Highlight a promotion or tailor your aesthetics to a specific event. Place your brand’s logo front and center where it’s hard to miss — the options are virtually limitless.
3. Easy Assembly
Cardboard displays typically come assembly-ready and can be put together with ease on-location. This feature speeds up the process on both the manufacturer’s and retailer’s end, ensuring a quick turnaround for your project.
Don’t mistake easy assembly for flimsy design, however. While corrugated display board is lightweight and flexible, it’s also very sturdy. Expert engineers construct corrugated material to maintain its shape and support a heavy load.
As a business, it’s always important to consider the bottom line. Corrugated structures are among the most cost-effective retail displays out there. This inexpensive marketing tool can lead to high payoffs and increased impulse sales without a hefty investment. Compared to many other display materials and styles, corrugated board leads to significant results without leaving a major dent in the budget.
5. A Temporary Nature
Not all businesses are ready to commit to a long-term display investment. You might be testing a new product or launching a seasonal promotional campaign. If you want to advertise your product in-store while keeping your creative efforts fresh, corrugated displays are your best bet.
