5 Benefits Of Using A Custom Box For Small Businesses

May 3, 2023

As a small business owner, it is likely that shipping, packaging, organising and storing products takes up large portions of your time and maybe even your budget. At Jetbox, we truly believe in the time saving and money saving benefits of custom boxes. And while those savings themselves are fantastic benefits, custom boxes provide 5 major benefits to you and your business.

If you have previously been unaware or unsure of custom boxes, we are here to help educate you on the worthwhile product that is custom made corrugated boxes. Read on for the 5 main benefits of custom made boxes from Jetbox.

Five Biggest Benefits of Using Custom Boxes for your Small Business

1. Custom Boxes Made to Your Measurements

When you create and ship your products, you always have your customers in mind. It is important to create a positive, meaningful experience for them – and one of the best ways to do this is with custom made boxes. Design your box to the exact measurements necessary, and show your customers how much thought has gone into your packaging – box included.

By making your box to your specific needs, you can plan exactly how much tape, bubble wrap and other products you will need more accurately! You might also need to use packaging products, as in the past ill fitting boxes may have required more padding inside to protect your products.

2. Durable and Strong to Protect Your Items

At Jetbox, our custom corrugated boxes are all made in Melbourne to the highest standards. We design and manufacture everything in Australia, and our custom made boxes are designed to withstand almost everything Australian weather can throw at them. No more products arriving broken due to faulty boxes – our boxes are made to last.

3. Custom Printing on your boxes to Raise Brand Awareness

Not only can you design the size of your box to your needs, you can also choose to have an image or logo custom printed onto your boxes as well. This allows for free brand awareness – wherever your box goes, so does your brand name or logo!

4. Customisable box style and cardboard thickness

If you sell specialised products, or maybe even products that can often be difficult to ship such as framed art, then you need a specialised box. At Jetbox, all of our custom made boxes are available in a design to suit you. From Custom Die Cut Gift Boxes to Custom Corner Cut Folder Boxes, our team can guide you through the ideal box design for your needs.

There are also a variety of different flute types available to you as well. These can add extra protection as necessary.

5. Save on Shipping Costs

Gone are the days where you pay the premium price for shipping simply because your boxes are oversized and ill fitting. With custom corrugated cardboard boxes from Jetbox, your boxes are compact, lighter and smaller – saving you money and allowing you to invest into other areas of your business.

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
