Best Practices For Packaging With Corrugated Boxes

by Tony Garner Marketing Manager

In shipping, what is the one factor that might damage your products if not done properly? Yes, it’s the packaging.

Proper packaging protects your products from any wear and tear as well as ensures customer satisfaction when the package shows up on their front door!

Corrugated boxes are hard to beat and they provide flexible yet tight packaging for your items.

If you pass at providing an excellent first impression, you have already won the hearts of your customers. Packaging helps you with safety, looks, robustness, and the appearance.

Why Should You Use Corrugated Boxes?

  • Very durable  to withstand rough handling conditions

  • Available in different grades including double-walled types

  • Packs easily using tapes or moderate adhesives

  • Customizable in different formats

  • Can be printed at very less cost

  • Cost-effective when bought in high quantity

  • High-quality protection for your goods

  • Protects goods against moisture by absorbing 

  • It is eco-friendly and recyclable as opposed to plastic

Corrugated Boxes For Standard Utility Packaging

Standard packaging is for utilities and it’s the simplest form of packaging. It incorporates either an envelope or a square box with fillers. 

Such packaging is good for companies and organizations that have just started shipping out to their customers, also the companies that have already established trust with their customers and don’t need to invest in fancy packaging!

Best Practices For Utility Packaging

  • Packaging should prioritize the safety of the product rather than other factors such as the unboxing experience

  • Seal your package at every edge with the aid of pressure-resistant and water-resistant tape

  • The customer worries about the product and no the box that it comes in. So prepare your packaging to receive some hits along the way but it shouldn’t compromise with the safety of the product inside.

Corrugated Boxes For Customized Packaging

Customized packaging is ideal for companies that expect their customers to have a great unboxing experience. It requires you to invest some time and money into the packaging.

Customized packaging allows you to use different tools such as samples, personal notes, tissue paper for decoration, stickers, etc to match your packaging with your product.

For example, the packaging for the merchandises sold out for Star Wars pretty much have the feel of a spaceship or reflects the characteristics of some characters from the series.

Best Practices For Customized Packaging

  • Adding a personalized note to the packaging provides a sense of concern for each product package. 

  • Tissue paper can be used to add an extra layer of curiosity for the customer. 

  • One more addition that can truly enrich a customer’s experience with your brand is a discount coupon for their next purchase!

  • You can add a few pieces or samples of associated products, as who doesn’t like freebies? It provides the sense of ‘you got more than what you paid for’ to the customer
