We are going to talk about self-assembled cardboard boxes for shipping, also known as mailboxes.
This type of box is stored and sent as a plate. Once received, they are assembled in a simple manner, leaving a lid or cover built into an auto-mount cardboard box. They are usually of medium or small size for simple and not very fragile shipments (or fragile shipments with extra protection).
Its thickness is generally single-channel or micro (3-4-5mm approximately) and can be white or brown (cardboard finish), any type of color printed and/or with customization.
It’s most common uses are e-commerce of cosmetics, clothing, food products and many other sectors and types of businesses. This type of box does not require tape to assemble or close it. It is advisable to put tape to seal the lid and that the box is tamper-proof throughout the dispensing channel.

A cardboard box or reusable packaging would enhance the end product. This happens with this type of boxes because if you wear a cap, it does not break and does not wear as much as other models. If we add our customization, logo or design to these self-service boxes for shipping, it will not only be reusable, but it will also be an optimal advertising method.
These cardboard boxes / Kraft boxes are ideal for these uses. In addition to their low cost, they are midway between packaging and packaging with high-end finishes. This will be a point to decide depending on the product offered and the budget that counts because each product requires a type of packaging or packaging to match.
The use of these boxes as packaging for gifts, craft projects, exhibitors, etc. is another option that is mixed in the market.
We’ll talk about very interesting ways to pack gifts with this type of cardboard box and other materials.
Innovation in packaging materials for product preservation
The main applications of the corrugated board industry are packaging. Often criticized and deemed unnecessary, it is essential and constitutes an essential factor of sustainable development. Indeed, thanks to him, almost all products reach the user in a perfect state of preservation. In the case of “bulk”, the loss of product may exceed 50%.
More than 30% of food products are damaged or destroyed each year worldwide due to the lack of packaging.
Some examples of innovation in packaging:
Brioche display rack
In order to offer great visibility to linear products, this brioche display has a large front opening that can be converted into a pediment to be placed at the top of the basket. Printed in high definition flexography and designed to take account of logistical constraints, this case is mechanized at high speed despite its large format.
Intended to replace cylindrical drums containing 20 kg of starch, the mini-container has been designed to meet the logistical needs of an expedition to Asia. Made of mono-material, with an automatic bottom for quick assembly, a U-shaped wedge to compensate for the pressure of the powder and a tamper-resistant lug, it brings ergonomics, safety, and resistance while preserving the environment.
This concept reinforces the basis of a box for cheese products to make content visible and accessible. The intelligent design turns this false mass into a “triple chevron” that saves material, production waste, assembly time and storage space.
This set of luminaries includes a cut-out tray, two shims as support when mounting luminaries on the production line and a cap. The two cut handles of the cap fit into those of the wedges and the plate, which solid arise all for a better grip. Responding to the approach of ISO 14001, this packaging facilitates assembly by operators and product protection.
Module 100 kg
This box consists of a module of 100 kg which makes it possible to constitute a pile of 200 kg just opposable with another pile on a pallet of 800 x 600. The module of the top is removed when it is empty to access the bags of carrots below. The continuity of the contents from one box to another is achieved by the space between the bottom flaps. The set has many logistical advantages (thanks to the absence of bulging on the side faces) and environmental benefits.
Numerous know-how has been implemented for this corrugated box: one-color flexographic internal printing with varnish, four-color UV offset external printing, two separate varnishes applied in reserve, and mass embossing during registration on all areas printed in shiny gold for a relief effect. The “quilted” effect was obtained by the marked embossing of the nets printed in gold. In total, eight manufacturing steps were necessary.
