Make a Good Impression by Shipping Your Goods With Sturdy Corrugated Mailers
As the e-commerce industry expands, the demand for packaging also increases. According to Smithers, a well-known provider of strategic market research reports, the “packaging demand will grow steadily at 2.8% to reach $1.05 trillion in 2024.” This is in conjunction with the projected growth of global retail sales, which is a staggering “9.5% compound annual growth rate from 2020-2025.”
Now more than ever, packaging is of the utmost importance. If you want your business to succeed, you have to invest in high-quality packaging that will keep your products safe while in transit and impress your customers when they receive them. Custom corrugated mailers are the perfect packaging for shipping. They are durable, weather-resistant, fully customizable, and suitable for almost all types of products.
To learn more about the advantages of using corrugated mailers, here are some quick facts that you need to know:
- Corrugated mailers are available in three sustainably sourced and recyclable materials: standard corrugated cardboard that has a white base, premium corrugated cardboard that offers a smoother white surface and a slight sheen, and brown kraft corrugated cardboard that provides an organic look and feel.
- Depending on your box dimensions, the material thickness can either be 1/16” E-flute corrugated cardboard or 1/8” B-flute corrugated cardboard.
- Our corrugated boxes can be customized within the following ranges:
- Length: 3" to 25"
- Width: 2" to 25"
- Depth: 1" to 15"
How to Pack Corrugated Mailer Boxes
Corrugated boxes are ideal for packing and transporting your goods because of their durability and range of sizes. But if you want to ensure that your products get to their destination safely, you need to know the most effective way to pack your corrugated mailer boxes.
Get the correct box dimensions. To ensure the safety of your products, you need to use corrugated mailers that have the correct size. If the boxes are too small, you won’t have space to fit the items inside. Make them too big and your products may bounce around inside the boxes, potentially incurring damage—a surefire way to make your customers unhappy. To prevent this, make sure you measure your products to get the correct dimensions for your corrugated mailer boxes.
Use custom box inserts. Even if you’re using mailer boxes with the correct dimensions, there may be some extra space left inside your packaging and your products can still move around. This is especially the case for items that have shapes that do not fit perfectly with your custom boxes such as bottles and jars. If you want to secure the contents inside your packaging, you can use box inserts to fill those extra spaces and ensure a snug fit. These add-ons can also make your products more presentable to your customers. Box inserts are perfect for subscription boxes and kits since they usually have multiple items in one box.
Complete your mailers with stickers or labels. Add your branding to your packages by using custom stickers or labels that feature your brand name or logo. You can also use these print materials to seal your mailer boxes and make them tamper-proof for extra security. But aside from additional protection, stickers and labels are also a great way to provide information to your customers and people who will handle the shipping of your products. A simple “Fragile” or “This Side Up” label on your packaging can go a long way in making sure that your items can be delivered safely.
Make your custom boxes weather-resistant. In an ideal world, your corrugated mailers are kept in a dry, cool, and safe place while in transit. However, there are certain situations where your custom mailer boxes can get exposed to moisture, the sun’s UV rays, and other outside elements while being shipped. These can cause damage to your packaging and the items stored inside. To prevent this, make sure that your custom boxes are weather-resistant by choosing the right materials and coating.
