Have you ever received an item through the post that arrived in a damaged box or the contents inside were broken? In most cases, this would generally be due to incorrect packaging, and it is the reason why it is very important to use the correct type of cardboard box packaging when you are planning to post an item.

The last thing you’d want to hear is about an item you have sent to loved ones or business clients that it has arrived damaged or smashed. So let’s take a look at some of the best postal box options for your business or personal use.

Which type of box is the best to use?

This would entirely depend on the type of product you are sending for delivery and where you are sending it to. Boxes come in all sorts of sizes and shapes, so there is bound to be a right fit for any item.

Postal boxes: You will notice postal boxes are designed with a closable card lid in order to keep the product in place and also to protect it during transit. They are usually constructed with single, double or triple sides depending on the side of the box and how heavy the item is that it’ll be carrying.

Postal boxes come in a wide range of shapes and sizes so you should always select a box that is suited for your item. For example, a book would be best sent in a flat box that is a similar size to the book itself to minimise the risk of damage.

Solid boxes: Solid boxes with lids are great to send to people or clients who you would like to make a good impression on, and give them the satisfying ‘unboxing experience’. Here at Bosworth Wright, we offer a hot foil printing facility on site so you can print your choice of logo on the lid

Advantages of using flat boxes for postage

Not only are flat boxes great for sending books, magazines, and tablets, they are also the perfect size to fit through a standard door letterbox slot.

As the item is flat packed and secure from moving, there is minimal need to add any extra packaging material such as bubble wrap or polystyrene, which makes it an eco-friendly posting option.

As the recent pandemic has changed the way we all shop, we’ll be seeing cardboard boxes around a lot more in our lives! It’s important to always consider the environmental impacts of using packaging materials – although cardboard boxes are recyclable, it’s always best to choose wisely when selecting your boxes and try to use less materials where possible.
