19 Jun 2015 Four New Die Cut Mailer Box Sizes Available and on Sale!
We are very pleased to announce the addition of four new corrugated mailer boxes to the list of stock boxes on our green packaging store – www.GlobeGuardProducts.com
What is the difference between a die cut mailer and a standard RSC shipping box?
An RSC (regular slotted container) box most commonly used has four flaps on top and four flaps on the bottom, and is sealed using two pieces of tape. A die cut mailer has a hinged lid that allows it to open like a cigar box and can be tuck top or front lock in design for a little extra security. We refer to the die cut mailer as more of a presentation box because it is typically more attractive and easier to open, making it ideal for subscription and e-commerce applications.
If your focus is custom printed, branded boxes, why are you adding more unprinted sizes to your inventory?
There are really several good reasons including:
- Not all of our customers are ready for branded packaging because of order minimums (1,000 boxes) or perhaps because of size uncertainty.
- Even large volume, custom print customers occasionally have a need for a different (unprinted) size for a particular product or promotion.
- Art is being developed or a rebranding is anticipated
- Starting off with a stock, unprinted size permits a smoother transition into custom printed boxes later.
The four new sizes of die cut mailer boxes
5” X 4” X 3” lock front, B-flute mailer– this is more of a reintroduction because it was a stock item and was eliminated due to sluggish sales. More recently we have been overwhelmed by inquiries from jewelry, e-juice and other people looking for a small, secure mailer box. Keep in mind, it can be custom printed in a low 1,000 box minimum.
8-3/4” X 5-3/4” X 2-3/4” lock front, E-flute mailer – E-flute is thinner, providing a more retail, less industrial look for our customers who want a more attractive presentation box. This new size ships well and is ideal for anything from snacks to cosmetics.
10” X 8-1/2” X 4” – (shown above) lock front, B-flute mailer – This box was added for everyone looking for something “just a little smaller” than our very popular 12-1/4” X 9-1/4” X 4” box. Since size matters in the new “dimensional rate” world, it is perfect for pet treats, snacks, and other subscription boxes.
11” X 12” X 2” – top tuck, E-flute mailer – The E-flute makes this box as sharp looking as it is strong. It is the perfect presentation box for retail or e-commerce, especially for apparel such as baby clothes or designer tee shirts.
