Cardboard Boxes come in various sizes and shapes. From Small Cardboard Boxes to boxes with shapes (like heart shape for Valentines Day) to Custom shapes that work for company logos. You can usually buy cardboard boxes on-line and in stores around the country. The special order type are sometimes available at printing companies as well as office supply stores.
Cardboard boxes are made from corrugated fiberboard, (sometimes called corrugated cardboard or just cardboard), or paperboard (essentially paper with a weight typically greater than 600g/m2, and also commonly referred to as cardboard, solidboard or posterboard).
A cardboard box can be printed to promote its contents and this can be achieved with flexographic, lithographic or screen printing techniques. Cardboard is an easy product to reuse as well. Cardboard storage boxes do have many other practical uses as well. Popular in the 1980s with the emergence of rap music, cardboard vr boxwere, and still are, used for breakdancing.
Corrugated cardboard is made of paper which again is made of new or recycled cellulose fibres. Up to 85% of all corrugated cardboard is recycled and is, therefore, a very environmentally acceptable packaging. Corrugated cardboard boxes use a waved, corrugated pattern because this offers much greater stability and strength than a single piece or even multi layered pieces of card would offer. For those circumstances when strength is necessary, corrugated cardboard boxes present the ideal storage or packaging solution.
Mailing Tubes with End Caps are the most popular style of shipping tube. They are typically made from 3-ply, spiral wound paper. Mailing tubes come in various lengths and widths to accommodate different sized items. Most of these shipping tubes will not be longer than 48 inches (122 cm). Mailing and shipping tubes come in different strengths, depending on how fragile their contents are or where they are being shipped. They guard against any denting, bumping and dropping that may happen during shipping. Wall thickness from .030 to .600. Heavy wall tubes, colored paper, printed, test cylinders, shipping, display poles.
Wardrobe boxes are particularly useful because they are like little bitty closets. You don’t even have to take your clothes off the hangers before you put them in the box. Wardrobe boxes are superb for the storage of hanging garments. Don’t waste time in having to iron your clothes again. Wardrobe boxes are larger than most our moving boxes. There is really no limit to what can be done with cardboard to enclose “something”. Your imagination is the boundary that will restrain you, oh and your wallet may do that to.
