Packaging Boxes – The Ideal Way To Send Your Products
Packaging boxes make a long and challenging journey before they reach their final destination, so they need to be made of strong materials to transport items safely and securely to the intended recipient. Depending on its anticipated route, your box may travel by air, van, train or ship and subsequently it is likely to be handled by many different people and go through a variety of systems. This journey can have a great impact on the wear and tear of your packaging materials, so you need to choose a sturdy option which is fit for purpose. It is also important that you choose an option which is suitable for the products that you will be sending, as heavy or bulky items will require stronger packaging to ensure they don't break through the cardboard. There is nothing worse as a business owner than having an upset client call to say they have received a damaged product because of inadequate packing.
Packing heavy items does take a bit more thought, but it is possible if you choose the right materials. Using postal packaging supplied by us here at World of Envelopes, you can be sure that your products reach your customers in perfect condition. By following these top tips we can ensure that your products are packaged securely and don't cost you a fortune to post. When packing heavy items it is recommended that you keep the boxes as small as possible. This is primarily because carrying a large, heavy item is awkward and increases the chance of the box being dropped or falling from a storage compartment. As the items may be fragile this makes them more prone to breakages, which means unhappy customers and extra costs to your business for replacements. When sending heavy products such as ceramics, books or tools, try to keep the packaging as small as possible.
Top Packaging Tips
It can be tempting to send two different sized items in the same box to save on postage costs, but even if packaged with bubble wrap they can still move around during transit and become damaged. It is much better to send two small cardboard boxes with the products packed neatly into the packaging, than one large box with two items which are free to move around. One of the best ways to keep your products secure and prevent them from being damaged en route to the customer is to pack the boxes as tightly as possible. You can achieve this by using paper, tissue paper, cardboard, bubble wrap or plastic air pockets. It can also help to use a stronger quality cardboard. When it comes to sending your items to customers there are two main types of cardboard boxes to choose from. These are single wall, and double wall.
The single wall packaging boxes are the cheapest material but not as strong, so they are ideal for sending light things such as jewellery, textiles or light cosmetics. If you are sending books or heavier items, you will need to go for the double wall box which uses two sheets of cardboard for each side, reinforcing all sides to protect heavy products. It is still important, however, to carefully package sharp items as these can still pierce the outer walls of a double wall box.
