What makes the Custom Shoe Box eco-friendly?
Our Custom Shoe Boxes are made with materials that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and with recycled fibers - 30% for coated Premium White boxes and up to 60% for uncoated White and Kraft boxes. Water-based ink is used for the printing and coating, so your box will still be recyclable regardless of your design. These boxes are just a step above the rest.
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 Shoe Box hold?
The Custom Shoe 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, like a pair of shoes!
What sizes are available for the Custom Shoe Box?
The Custom Shoe Box comes in 5 different sizes, so you can find the right fit:
- 203mm x 152mm x 76mm (8" x 6" x 3")
- 229mm x 178mm x 102mm (9" x 7" x 4")
- 305mm x 178mm x 102mm (12" x 7" x 4")
- 356mm x 203mm x 127mm (14" x 8" x 5")
- 356mm x 254mm x 127mm (14" x 10" x 5")
We also have our Custom Container Shipping Boxes if you want to double up with another layer of beautiful box branding!
What are the finishes on the Custom Shoe Box?
The Kraft and uncoated White boxes come in a natural matte finish, but if you're looking to add a little pep in your step, 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 Shoe Box?
Our Custom Shoe Boxes are customized via digital printing in CMYK colors, which means you can design the outside and inside with as many colors as you'd like! 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!
