About Our Corrugated Boxes

Corrugated box manufacturing can be a complicated and in depth process. It involves matching up the right corrugated manufacturer to the right customer project. There are also many different types and styles of corrugated boxes including regular slotted containers (RSC), half slotted containers (HSC), rolled end tuck tops (RETT), rolled end tuck tops with dust flaps and cherry locks (RETTDFCL), and many, many more. The fluting of the corrugated box also helps in determining how much strength you will need in your box. The most commonly used corrugated fluting is C Flute for shipping boxes, E flute for litho laminating, and B flute for trays. You can also print on corrugated packaging. Either a direct print, litho label, or laminating the litho right to the fluting (also called single face laminating). A basic corrugated box is a single wall box. Single wall boxes consist of two liners and one medium. The medium is the "fluting" of the box. By increasing the thickness or doubling the quantity of the liners, a corrugated box will have greater strength.

I like the envelope idea a lot AND

I like the white envelope idea a lot. I went to the USPS web site and see that it appears the post office might also like the envelope idea too. Yeah!!!!
Here is what they say. (Please note the last sentence where it says "Some locations offer decorative boxes and expander packs that are suitable for mailing gifts.") I did not know that.
