FAQs on Custom Shipping Boxes
Why use custom shipping boxes?
The most produced corrugated box is the shipping or Regular Slotted Container (RSC). This box is a tank, and is the ideal choice for protecting your product. Nearly every industry uses the RSC to withstand the punishment of shipping goods in the mail. The shipper is the perfect box for bulky or larger items that wouldn't fit in a mailer box. Despite a larger stature, the RSC maintains a perfect canvas to showcase your branding.
How do I design custom shipping boxes?
You can design your custom shipping boxes using our online design tool. Please note that your artwork should be at least 300 dpi in order to ensure sharp and high quality printing. You can also send us your artwork with instructions and we can help you place it on a dieline in order to create a digital proof for your approval.
What materials are used to make custom shipping boxes?
Our custom shipping boxes are made from corrugated cardboard manufactured from FSC Certified Paper.
Can custom shipping boxes be reused or recycled?
Our custom shipping boxes are recyclable and ecofriendly.
How long does it take to receive custom shipping boxes?
Our standard production time is 7-10 business days after you approve your proof. Rush production takes less than a week after you approve your proof. Shipping will take approximately 2 to 7 business days after production is completed. Orders requiring LTL freight shipping can require additional shipping time.
