Saving the environment one bespoke box at a time

Saving the environment one bespoke box at a time

As MPs and newspapers continue to push for people to lead a more environmentally-friendly life, here at Boxtopia we always try to do our bit. Our carbon footprint is just as important to us as it is to you.

This is why we ensure that our bespoke cardboard boxes are made from 100% recyclable materials. Even those made from virgin wood are cut from sustainable forests. If you are a business then choosing cardboard over substances such as plastic is a wise move. Not only are the boxes recyclable but they are bio-degradable too. Many companies package their products up in non-organic ways and often double up; but with Boxtopia this does not have to be you.

Finding the right packaging

Finding the right packaging

When you are a small business owner one of your primary objectives is to deliver your products safely and securely to your customers.

E-commerce professionals have recently been documented in a survey by eBay that damaged packaging accounts for up to 60% of returns. This is a huge and costly affair if you are trying to keep your overheads down as a company.

We recently interviewed a small business owner called Rebecca Alderton, who stated,

“As a small business owner, damaged items returned due to inappropriate packaging would be seriously detrimental to my reputation and customers’ happiness. I would hate for this to happen so always choose the best quality and most suitable packaging materials and have never had a complaint; even when delivering to Hong Kong”

Printed boxes ideal for promoting your company and sending samples

Every company or business promotes themselves at some point. The sending out of branded goods is a great way of getting your name out there and marketing yourself to a much wider audience. We find a lot companies use this method to deliver T-shirts, stationery, samples or even mugs to their customers.

The advantages of die-cutting

Think of die-cutting as industrial-strength cookie cutting: you take a piece of corrugated cardboard and then cut out your box dimensions, using a die like a cookie cutter machine. This then produces a flat box shape which can be easily slotted together. 

 
With Boxtopia you choose the dimensions, shape, thickness and quantity of boxes you require. Then you can leave it up to us to cut your bespoke boxes out for you. Simple!

Professional appearance

Die-cut boxes are essential to modern packaging and for major manufacturers and retailers as a whole. They are even super beneficial for smaller businesses too. Why? Because these neat boxes are used to package and ship products across the UK and Europe in an easy, professional and affordable manner. 

No need for tape

The die-cut box uses tabs and slots to keep the box closed. This means that most styles do not require any tape, banding, glue, or staples to secure the edges, so these boxes are ideal for shipping and in-store displays.
 
We have put together a small list of ‘The main benefits of using die-cuts in your business’ and it goes as follows:

 

  1. Uniformity – Die-cutting creates multiple identical forms, so you get boxes all the same shape and much more professional looking.
  2. Speed – Our die-cutting machine can create a shape in one punch, so has the ability to make many identical boxes extremely quickly.
  3. Low Cost – Other methods of cutting require the use of multiple tools or machines; die-cutting can be less expensive because only one tool or machine is needed to create the boxes.
  4. Less Waste – Die-cutting leaves less waste material around the shapes than other cutting methods, because the dies can be lined up very closely. This, therefore, is good news for the environment as well as your business.
If you've been convinced by the advantages to die-cutting listed here, visit our die-cut box page to see some preset size options or give us a call on 01476 576 090 to order your fully bespoke boxes..
