The market for packaging boxes has become so saturated it can be hard to filter through all your options and end up at the perfect choice. Here at Jetbox, we want to make it easy to choose the best packaging boxes for your business, factoring in your budget, your products and the overall conditions your boxes will face. There are so many sizes, materials and box designs to choose from – and we are here to help make your choice seem less overwhelming, and break down all of our options for you.
There are a few questions you need to ask yourself before we start. These questions will ensure you understand what you are looking for, and can then make the best choices with the knowledge you have gathered. For example, a company that ships light weight products in small quantities directly to customers would best suit a Mailing Box, whereas a company that ships heavy or bulky items a Strong A3 Carton to protect their items during transit and storage. The box you need can be ascertained by answering the below questions!
First Thing To Ask Yourself: What Are You Using Your Packaging Boxes For?
It may seem like a small decision, but the packaging box you choose makes all the difference. Ensuring your products arrive at their destination without damage is the main purpose of your packaging boxes, and every business requires different packaging to achieve this. At Jetbox, we manufacture high quality, Australian made corrugated cardboard boxes to suit any business.
As mentioned above, businesses that use their boxes solely to deliver small or light weight items to their customers need smaller, protective boxes. We recommend our Mailing Box, as they are lightweight, protective and the design locks the flap closed to add an extra layer of protection. Mailing Boxes are ideal for businesses who ship clothing, jewellery, cosmetics and other similar items.
If you are shipping clothing or other items in larger quantities, our 0112 Box or our A3 Box could be the perfect solution for you! These boxes are made using corrugated cardboard, and are designed to keep fragiles like collectables safe.
Second Thing To Ask Yourself: Is Your Product Fragile Or Does It Require Extra Care Or Planning?
If you are shipping items that are fragile, extra heavy or require special treatment then you need to consider these things when choosing your packaging box. Consider the size of your box, as you may need a larger box than initially planned to fit the excess packaging materials necessary to keep your items safe.
It is also good to measure how much space things like bubble wrap, butchers paper and bio-fill take up if you are planning on using them consistently. At Jetbox, we offer custom made corrugated boxes for this exact reason. We know that standard size boxes don’t always allow for the perfect fit, and if your products require special care and packaging you should be using boxes made just for them.
We offer custom made corrugated cardboard boxes in a range of styles and thicknesses to suit any product. Fragile, heavy, difficulty shaped; no matter what, we can work with you to create the ideal custom box solution.
Third Thing To Ask Yourself: What Is My Budget?
All business owners are conscious of prices. It may seem intimidating to purchase your first order of packaging boxes, but there is nothing to fear. At Jetbox, we manufacture all our boxes to the highest standards in our Melbourne warehouse. Our team has over 10 years experience in creating boxes, both ready made and custom boxes, and we are here to answer any and all of your questions.
Remember that well made boxes will save you time and money – when less items arrive damaged, you won’t have to pay for replacements! And if you purchase smaller boxes, there is potential for cheaper shipping costs too!
Custom boxes are another thing which can seem intimidating, but the prices may surprise you. Check out our online custom box calculator for an instant quote, and see how affordable custom made boxes can be!
