Corrugated cardboard is the best option for your business when it comes to boxes, but many business owners don’t know why. Not all boxes are made equal, and it is important to understand exactly how your boxes are made and to what standard before using them in your business.
Boxes can be made using a number of materials, including paperboard or plastic. They are often made to a specific purpose, such as TV Boxes or 50 Litre cartons, or they can be made to suit your custom needs. So why shouldn’t you just buy any boxes you see on the market? You cannot know the quality of a box without research, and if it isn’t corrugated then you risk the boxes being more prone to breaking.
Corrugated boxes are made of a strong, reliable material that will protect your items through transport and storage. Protect your items with Australian made corrugated cardboard boxes – read on for all the benefits of corrugated cardboard, Jetbox’s chosen cardboard of choice.
What is Corrugated Cardboard?
Corrugated cardboard is cardboard that is specially made using 3 different layers. This cardboard sandwich has two outer layers made of flat paper and an inside, ruffled layer of wavy paper. This combination of 3 layers is what makes the cardboard so durable and versatile.
The ruffled layer goes through a strenuous process of being crimped, layered and glued together at a corrugating or converting plant. It is then cut, printed and folded to be made into boxes, unique to your business needs.

Why All Businesses Should Use Corrugated Cardboard Boxes
Corrugated cardboard comes with many benefits for your business and your customers. Not only is corrugated cardboard super strong and durable, able to withstand substantial weight, it is also lightweight. This translates to a box that is easy to store, fold, and ship while maintaining strong protection for your items.
Corrugated boxes are also budget friendly, when purchased from a reputable source such as Jetbox. While affordability can sometimes mean lesser quality, at Jetbox we offer high quality corrugated boxes for prices that don’t break the budget.
