The Top 3 Boxes For Postage & Mailing

January 29, 2021

If you run a small business, you have most likely had to mail your products to your customers. No matter if you do this daily, or a few times a month, choosing the right mailing box is key. By choosing mailing boxes, instead of padded mailing bags, you are adding necessary protection to keep your products safe. Mailing boxes can also be customised, stored easily when flat packed and come in a range of sizes to suit your needs! At Jetbox, all our mailing boxes are made with corrugated cardboard, and are a protective and stylish mailing solution. With so many styles to choose from, you may be unsure which mailing box style is right for you. We have compiled the top 3 boxes for mailing below! No matter if you’re posting candles, posting books or posting jewellery, Jetbox has a mailing box for you. Read on to find out more.

The Top 3 Boxes For Postage & Mailing - Jetbox Melbourne

Style One: Regular Slotted Carton

The first style we offer is the Regular Slotted Carton. This style of box has bottom and top flaps. When assembling, all you need to do is pop the box open and tap down the bottom side, leaving one side open for your product! Once safely inside, you just tape the top and your product is now safe and secure. This style is usually the box people think of when picturing storage or mailing boxes. At Jetbox, we offer our Regular Slotted Cartons in any size. We customise the boxes to suit your needs, and no matter how tall or wide your products are we can accommodate them.

Style Two: Corner Cut Folder (also known as Maltese Cross)

This style is perfect for small businesses who send out flat packed items, or shallow items such as documents, paperback and hardback books, art prints and framed products. Corner Cut Folder, or Maltese Cross boxes only have flaps on the top, and completely encase the product to keep it safe. Simply request a quote with Jetbox for the size you need, and we can get working to make it happen! Feel free to use Jetbox’s custom box calculator to get your custom box journey started.

Style Three: 0427 Style

The 0427 style is the most classic postage box style. If you run a small business that posts small – medium sized items, you will have probably come across this style before. This style features roll over sides, which tuck into the box for extra security. This also limits the amount of tape you need! At Jetbox, our 0427 boxes are rigid and strong, and make for a great protective mailing box option. All of our 0427 are custom made to meet your requirements.

Alternative Option: 0426 Style

The 0426 postage box is very similar to the 0427, however is better for board utilisation and is generally a more affordable option. Both the 0426 and 0427 styles are already popular for Australian business owners, as they are easy to assemble and make great boxes for transporting items. Our 0426 also needs to be custom ordered. If you are worried about the price of custom ordering your boxes, you may be surprised how affordable they actually are. Read more about the affordability of customer boxes on our news page!

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.
