Small businesses owners understand the importance of designing custom shipping boxes better than anyone.

Read on to learn all our tips and tricks for making sure your custom boxes reach their maximum potential and are a breeze for your customers to handle.
Consciously Designing Custom Shipping Boxes
When it comes to designing your custom corrugated boxes, it is important to add features that have a clear purpose. If you are going to create an overly complicated design simply for the sake of it, then the integrity of the box may fail, or your items may not be adequately protected. Conscious design decisions are necessary, as is ensuring you provide the right measurements.
Designing Custom Shipping Boxes To Be Easy To Open, As Well As Secure
When choosing the style of box you want to use for your business, there are a few key things to consider. Will your boxes be full to the very top, creating a risky situation when customers use a knife or scissors to piece the box open? If you are shipping fragile items that need extra protection and tape, how easy will it be for your customers to remove this tape and access their purchased products?
By choosing your box style carefully, you can ensure your products are secured while also keeping the customer happy. Styles such as Mailing Boxes have self sealing flaps, and one large cardboard flap over the top of the box instead of two that meet in the middle. This can be ideal for products that sit right at the top of the box, as there is no risk that will be cut or damaged upon opening.
Ensure Your Handholds Don’t Weaken Your Custom Boxes Integrity
If you are looking to add handholds to your custom made die-cut box, then you must ensure these holes don’t decrease the strength and integrity of your box.
Handholds can be a great use for boxes that are large, heavy or generally awkward to pick up. However, if your products are so heavy that handholds will weaken the box then it is best to not include them, or reduce their size.
The best thing to do in the case of adding handholds is to speak with your chosen manufacturer, such as Jetbox, and let them guide you. The staff at Jetbox have over a decade of experience in designing custom shipping boxes, and will ensure your final design protects and holds your products without posing a risk to your customers.
