Corrugated cartons are often used as shipping and storage containers and usually referred to as cartons, boxes, totes, carriers and many other names. The word “carton” is often used specifically in reference to smaller containers, mostly those that are used for the storage or shipment of food items. They can be made out of brown cardboard, white cardboard, plastic and a variety of other materials. A corrugated product consists of a combination of a fluted piece of material sandwiched between two or more pieces of the same material. Corrugated cartons are often found in many industries and even homes or non-industrial places of business.
Card stock materials are a popular material used to produce corrugated cartons as well as a paper pulp-based material known as paperboard. Strength and impact resistance are created when using corrugated materials because of the multiple layers and pleated sheet design. Similar to most options, corrugated cartons come in a variety of sizes, from 4 x 4 x 4 to a very large size such as 48 x 48 x 48 and can be re-used many times and can be recycled properly. Corrugated cartons will continue to be in high demand for many abilities including the ability to personalize with logos or writing. This is a sustainable resource for environmentally forward companies or businesses, or even individuals that are interested in saving money by re-using items. Overall, a company may be interested in corrugated cartons for a more cost-efficient, environmentally safe, and versatile storage solution.
