Where To Buy Cardboard Boxes?


It doesn't matter what you're shipping, we understand that finding the right shape, size, and type of box is just as important as the custom design. If you're at a loss as to which box you should use, don't panic. Here at Boxtopia we offer many options. If you don't see it, we can almost certainly create it.


The first step is working out whether you need a single walled box or a double walled box. We sell all of our main styles (see below) in both board thicknesses, but why would you choose one over the other? Simply put, single walled boxes are cheaper and lighter, making them useful for smaller products, whereas double walled board is better suited to heavy products or irregularly shaped items that might punch through thinner cardboard. With that in mind, what are the different styles of box?

The 0201
These boxes come to mind when you think of a traditional shipping box. With the right packaging materials, they can be used to ship almost anything. They require tape to seal along the middle at the top and bottom. 0201s are the boxes of choice for a variety of different jobs.


The 0203
Also a great choice, each flap folds completely over the other. This is ideal for those extra heavy items, as these boxes won't bend as easily. 

The 0411 5 panel wrap

 Another popular choice, 0411boxes are great for shipping items such as pictures and books, shelving and other long/shallow items.
