What makes the Custom Container Shipping Box eco-friendly?
Not only are the Custom Container Shipping Box materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™, they're also made up of recycled fibers - 30% for coated Premium White boxes and up to 60% for uncoated White and Kraft boxes. The printing and coating is done with water-based ink, which means your box will still be recyclable at the end of the day, regardless of your design. So don't be shy, let your shipments shine!

What is E-flute?
E-flute refers to the density of the corrugated material - just about 1/16-inch in thickness. Protective crush resistance? Check. Lightweight and spacious? Check. The best of both worlds? Absolutely.
How much weight can the Custom Container Shipping Box hold?
The Custom Container Shipping Boxes are rated 32 ECT (Edge Crush Test), which sets maximum weight capacity at 65lbs per industry standards - we'd say they’re best suited for light to medium weight products.
What sizes are available for the Custom Container Shipping Box?
The Custom Container Shipping Box comes in 4 different sizes:

We also have our custom noissue Boxes if you want to double up with another layer of beautiful box branding!
What are the finishes on the Custom Container Shipping Box?
The Kraft and uncoated White boxes come in a natural matte finish, but if you're in the mood for a little something extra for your shipping boxes, the Premium White option is finished with a water-based coating to give it some gloss.
What color/printing options are available for the Custom Container Shipping Box?
Our Custom Container Shipping Boxes are customized via digital printing in CMYK colors, which means you can design it with as many colors as you'd like, both inside and out! Choose between 3 bases to print your designs on:
- White (Matte/Uncoated)
- Premium White (Glossy/Coated)
Just a heads up - white ink printing is currently unavailable for the Kraft base, but the same white-on-Kraft effect can easily be simulated by simply adding a Kraft texture/color background to your design, and then printing that image on the White or Premium White base instead.
If you still want to stick with the Kraft base anyway, please note that any white portions of your design cannot be printed in that color for now!
