How to Choose the Right Shipping Box for your Product?

Choosing the right shipping box is an important decision that could come with complications that you may not have previously considered. Packaging is the first thing your customers will see before they open their goods and it’s crucial to make a positive and lasting impression instantly.

While there are obvious things to consider when choosing a bespoke cardboard box, such as size and overall cost, other factors must also be taken into account – elements such as the fragility of the product, the strength of the box and how much insulation you want to pack. Whether you’re sending clothes or fragile glass, we’re here to help. Having the right packaging can save you money in the long run while also improving your brand image, as well as many other benefits. At Perfection Box, whether you’re looking for a standard packaging product or a bespoke cardboard box, we’re here to help guide you through the process of choosing the right shipping box.

Find the right size

The most obvious first step in choosing the right bespoke postage box is to consider what size box will be the right fit for your products. Whether you’re shipping one product or multiple goods in one package, it’s important to account for the interior space required inside the box – and to factor in if you’ll need any protective material, such as bubble wrap or interior dividers to separate your goods. At Perfection Box, we offer a bespoke cardboard box customisation tool that allows you the opportunity to design and build your own cardboard box to match your exact specifications. When finding the right size, it’s essential to think about what your product is and what sort of packaging would be best.

How fragile is it?

If you’re planning to ship fragile or breakable items, it’s strongly advised to either choose a box with extra space for additional packing material. Alternatively, look for specialised packaging options, such as a cardboard bottle box. Utilising a larger box will provide you with additional space to fill with packing material to avoid damage. But if you’re looking to ship bottles, mugs, glasses or other similarly fragile items, a specifically designed cardboard box for bottles is the ideal solution. These bespoke postage boxes provide you with the ability to store your goods upright, minimising damage and the risk of breaking without the additional requirement, or cost, of excess packing materials.

How strong is the box?

Any box that you choose to ship must be able to support the weight of your products without compromising on the overall strength of the box or damaging the product inside. The right bespoke cardboard box should be able to withstand the external factors that occur during transit. Boxes are essential in ensuring that your items arrive safely at their destination. Durable boxes, like those provided at Perfection Box, must be able to maintain the quality and integrity of the shipped items throughout the entire journey. We offer both single and double-walled corrugated cardboard boxes of the highest quality that will retain their strength and durability throughout transit.

Other factors to consider

With an array of product-specific bespoke postage boxes available, such as A4 boxes or even cardboard pallet boxes, other factors should be considered that can have an impact not only on your profit margins but also on customer satisfaction and brand image.

Recyclability

In today’s environmentally conscious marketplace, many consumers consider the impact of their actions and purchases on the environment. By choosing a bespoke cardboard box that is recyclable or manufactured from recycled materials, you can positively improve your brand image. At Perfection Box, you can rest assured knowing that all our bespoke cardboard boxes are manufactured from recycled materials and are also fully recyclable.

Quality of the box

Similar to choosing the right strength for a box, the overall quality of the box is also important. Having a box of the highest quality that can withstand transit without being damaged and that can deliver goods in one piece can help improve customer satisfaction. This satisfaction can lead to repeat purchases and improve your company’s image as someone that deals with high quality throughout their production process, eventually leading to increased revenue.

Price of the box

When considering purchasing bespoke postage boxes, most consumers disapprove of having the packaging costs pushed onto them. Therefore, finding an affordable box without you having to increase prices, while also being of high quality, is vitally important to you.
