Different types of packaging options
Let's have a look at some of the different types of packaging options you can use to improve your goods & customer experience!
PAPERBOARD (also known as folding carton) BOXES are an excellent cost-effective and consumer-friendly choice for packaging a variety of products. Folding cartons are made of single-layered paperboard. It’s a paper-based material that is lightweight, yet strong. These boxes are compatible with many printing options. Since folding cartons are printed in full color and can be fully customized with print on the outside and inside of the box. Perfect for light weight and medium weight products. Also these are very compact for storage, because boxes come in flat. Most common types of boxes that you will see at retail stores. For example these are used for beauty products e.g. perfume and soaps.
CORRUGATED BOXES are what you would commonly refer to as brown cardboard boxes. Corrugatedboard is a multi-layered material created from three layers of kraft paperboard. The two outer layers are thick pieces called liner boards and middle layer is a thinner, wavy piece of reinforced paper that creates air pockets. The “air pockets” in corrugated board give it perfect resistance to impacts and rough handling- this makes these boxes perfect for shipping. These boxes are used by businesses all over the world to ship goods every day. And they’re among the most cost-effective options for ensuring that your products arrive at their destinations safely. Used in both shipping and retail environments.
RIGID BOXES are more durable and do not fold as paperboard boxes do. These are often used for higher-end and luxury products. They are ideal when you want to promote a high value of a product. Rigid boxes are a sturdy paper-based box, which consists of 2-3mm thickness paperboard, wrapped by decorative paper. These boxes are typically four times thicker than an average folding carton. Rigid boxes consist of basically two parts – a lid and base. They come in a huge variety of styles, shapes and closure types, so you can customise and embellish the way you want to make them look and feel special.
Plastic courier bag
COURIER BAGS. Plastic courier bags are useful for e-commerce companies for safe and secure movement of their goods. Plastic bags have an integral adhesive strip for close tightly and it helps to keep them waterproof. Now are also popular double seal and peel strips, because this way you can return goods with the same bag and use already existing tape line. Die cut handles for easier carrying. Most of the plastics courier bags used today are recyclable and are already made 100% or less of recycled materials.
