All boxes are not the same!
when we pack using single-wall vs. double-wall boxes
Did you know we use different box types depending on how you want us to deliver your project?
The top photo above is of a double-wall box, while the bottom one is a single-wall box.
Double-wall boxes offer more protection to their contents. As their name suggests, they are twice as thick as normal boxes. Unfortunately, they are not available in as many sizes as single-wall boxes and they cost more. The top photo is a double-wall box.
We use double-wall boxes:
- When we are shipping printed items via UPS, USPS, or Fedex.
- When we are delivering items that will then be reshipped to multiple destinations by the customer.
Single-wall boxes are lighter and are available in more sizes. Though less protective than double wall cartons, they offer ample protection in the applications we use them for. The bottom photo is a single-wall box.
We use single-wall boxes:
- When your boxes are delivered via our own trucks. Our drivers are able to carefully handle packages when delivering from our plant to your location.
- When shipping LTL (Less than truckload freight shipping), all cartons are wrapped carefully and securely on skids. The skids and wrapping provide ample protection.
If you plan on reshipping some or all of your delivered print job, please do ask us to use double-wall boxes for the portion you will be shipping if you are not re-packing your contents. Otherwise, your print may be damaged by the shipping company, be it Fedex, UPS, or USPS.
We are happy to accommodate; just let us know!
