01. Is corrugated the best material for boxes?
Yes! Corrugated is both lighter and less expensive than alternatives like plastic, wood, and metal, plus it is 100% recyclable. Unlike other types of boxes, corrugated boxes fold down flat for storing and shipping, which saves you money and floor space. Corrugated is strong enough for stacking, resistant to impact and vibration, and it can cushion and protect your products during shipping.

02. Do you stock any containers?
No, but lead times are extremely short. Sometimes we can run your order the same day.

03. What is ECT?
ECT, or edge crush test, is performed to predict the vertical strength of corrugated board. The test determines the resistance to compression of the flutes in pounds per square inch.

04. Do I need artwork to have my cartons printed?
Artwork is preferred, but if needed we can work without it. Having artwork helps to minimize plate costs and prevents mistakes.

Top


05. Can I get my logo printed on my containers?
Yes! We can print Logos and product information directly on the carton.

Top


06. When can I have my containers delivered?
As fast as you need them, we will fit our schedule of production to yours.

Top


07. Can you freight my order to another location?
We deliver 95% of our business on our trailers direct to your location. If your shipping location is out of our shipping zone, we will freight/UPS your order upon your request.

Top


08. Do you stock point-of-purchase display?
No, but our designers can help create a counter top or floor display that can be printed with your product information, company name, etc.

Top


09. Can I get ventholes/handholes on my box?
Yes. We have stock tooling for standard size vent/hand holes. Some sizes or styles may require a full die board at a one time cost to you.

Top


10. Can my printing dies be used on multiple sizes?
We prefer a separate set of plates for each box size, especially if the printing varies. Where possible we will optimize their use.

Top


11. Can I change my corrugated packaging to gain greater stacking strength?
Redesigning and reevaluating the customer's needs is a priority for us. Changes from the current carton design may improve performance. The use of high performance packaging will result in increased stacking strength with lower costs.

Top


12. Do you have a minimum order requirement?
No, we will run any size order. We do have a minimum order size for delivery. Please check with our customer service department to see if your delivery cost is included.

Top


13. Can corrugated boxes be recycled?
Yes, corrugated fiberboard is more likely to be recycled than any other paper product.

Top


14. Are oil based inks used and does the ink contain heavy metals?
The corrugated industry has reduced the usage of heavy metals, and Volatile Organic Compounds. Box manufactures now use water based ink exclusively.
