Two Way, Returnable and Resealable Packaging for E-commerce

We are all familiar with USPS, UPS or FedEx corrugated shipping boxes that feature a peel and seal strip for security and fast, easy (tapeless) closure. In most cases a peel and seal adhesive strip is accompanied by a tear strip for easy opening by the recipient.

Until recently, this type of box was unaffordable for the average shipper because of high costs per box and even higher minimums. That is why shippers who want this design feature end up having to use the USPS, UPS and FedEx “free” boxes those carriers are eager to provide. This link will lead you to the post that discusses the true cost of those free boxes; it may be more than you think. However, my biggest problem with them is that they are printed to promote their name and brand, not yours.

We are pleased to announce we can now offer that style of box with one adhesive and easy open tear strip. We believe the only thing better than one adhesive strip is two strips, because it is an inexpensive way to create a box the consumer can open, reseal and return product that is the wrong size, color, etc.

Two Way (Returnable) Packaging

In some applications (apparel for example) having a box that can be shipped back with a return, exchange, etc. is very desirable because it reduces the possibility of the clothing being soiled or damaged in the process. An example is online rentals of onetime use apparel like formal gowns, tuxedos, as well as e-commerce companies whose business model is returning and exchanging outgrown clothing gently worn by fast growing children. Whatever the application or reason for the return, the customer convenience is good for them and for you.

A NEW product from Salazar Packaging

2 way box with two adhesive strips showing by Salazar PackagingWe can apply one or two “peel and seal” adhesive strips on almost any size shipping mailer box. If only one adhesive strip is necessary, you can still have a reinforced easy open perf for customer convenience. If you need a two-way (returnable) shipper, we apply two adhesive strips with a reinforced tear strip in between.

Combine this with our ability to custom print your box inside and out with YOUR brand, and custom inserts to present and protect the product being shipped, and we can now deliver a complete and unique package design your customers are sure to appreciate.

Some special tooling (onetime expense) may also be necessary depending on the size, style, and feature you want. Generally, the minimum is usually in the 1,000 to 3,000 range depending mostly on the box size and graphics required.

We can look at the complete application and give you a firm price that is likely to surprise you. Packaging like this is more affordable than you might think.two way box with primary adhesive strip removed.
