Frequently Asked Question:-
- Is corrugated the best material for boxes?
Yes! Corrugated is lighter and less expensive than alternative materials, such as plastic, wood, and metal—plus it is 100% recyclable. Unlike other types of boxes, corrugated boxes fold flat for storing and shipping, saving you money and floor space. Corrugated is strong enough to stack, resistant to impact and vibration, and it can cushion and protect your products during shipping.
- Do you stock any containers?
No, but lead times are extremely short. We can often run your order the same day we receive it.
- What is ECT?
ECT (edge crush test) is performed to predict the vertical strength of corrugated board. It determines the resistance to compression of the flutes in pounds per square inch.
- Do I need artwork to have my cartons printed?
Artwork is preferred but, if needed, we can work without it. Having artwork helps minimize plate costs and prevent mistakes.
- Can my logo be printed on my containers?
Yes! We can print your logo and product information directly on cartons.
