Custom Boxes are made from a variety of materials. Here is an overview of those that are most commonly used.
Wood is most commonly used for most custom boxes. It can be a simple box made from wood or can be more complex, such as a combination box with both a lid and a top. Wooden style boxes are usually sold in sets of four. Some may have the lid on top of the box itself.
Plastic is used most often for boxes that come pre-made in rolls. These usually come in a variety of colors and styles. Most plastic boxes can also be purchased separately.
Custom Mailer Boxes
Mailer boxes are used to transport mail, and therefore have to be waterproof and sturdy. A few companies offer durable paper mailers that are water and heat resistant, but they are much heavier than traditional plastic mailers.
Cans are another common type of container used for custom boxes. Can inserts be purchased and placed inside the box? The insert can be cut to size so that they can only come halfway up the side of the box. These can be used with either a lid or a top and may come in different shapes and styles.
Containers can also be cut into any shape or size. Lids and tops are sometimes glued onto the container, which makes it even more durable.
These are used for the shipping and retail purpose
Cartons are popular for business applications and are often used to ship merchandise from one location to another. They can come in a variety of styles and sizes. Cartons can be a combination of lid and top, or lid and cardboard.
Cartons can also be purchased separately. Although they can hold a lot of merchandise, they are also susceptible to damages from bad weather and scratches from the packing material.
Custom printed boxes are also very popular since they are also quite portable. They are sold separately and come in several shapes and sizes.
Embossing and debossing boxes
Printing is usually an embossed image or a colored vinyl material, which can be easily cleaned. Printed boxes also come in many different styles and sizes. They can be purchased with either a lid or a top, depending on the design.
Glass is another popular material used by many manufacturers when producing custom boxes. Customized glass boxes are great for those looking to have a special presentation to their guests. Glass boxes are also quite easy to clean since they don’t scratch easily.
These are just a few examples of what is available when customizing boxes for companies. Custom boxes will also often come with free lids and covers, which make them even more cost-effective.
