How to Measure Boxes

One of the most important things to consider in ordering custom boxes are the measurements. Correct dimensions can spell the difference between saving money to costing your company thousands of dollars. The biggest tip to remember in ensuring the correct box measurements is to always the interior dimensions, never the exterior. Measuring from inside guarantees that any product falling within the same dimensions will fit inside a box. When you measure from outside, you run the risk of products not fitting due to the thickness of the material, especially when thick corrugated cardboard is used.
