Optimal Box Design for Efficiency Every Step of the Way

Mailer boxes are tough enough to be shipped as is — and are often used for external shipping alone. This is why it is crucial for mailer boxes to be designed with streamlined shipping in mind. Protect your products across the globe with custom mailer boxes designed to withstand the bumps along the way. From greater protection to extensive customization, there are a number of reasons to ship with corrugated packaging. At Axis Corrugated Container, our ISTA testing lab ensures packaging meets set standards for safe international shipping.

Compared to other boxes, mailer boxes are a lighter shipping solution. Considering the cost of shipping depends on weight, custom mailer boxes are a great way to save on shipping costs. Not only are custom mailer boxes lightweight and durable, but they are also easy to assemble due to their interlocking flaps and wings and don’t require adhesive.

Better accommodate your product and meet specifications with a custom mailer solution.

What is a Standard Mailer Box Size?

Right-size packaging goes a long way in cutting down on shipping costs long-term. At Axis Corrugated container, we identify opportunities to reduce waste and produce your custom mailers in the exact size you need. Standard mailer box sizes are below. Depending on your application, you may want to make sure products fit by adding some length to each side.

6” x 6” x 2”
10” x 8” x 4”
14” x 12” x 3’’

If you find that your products won’t fit in the standard size boxes, your best option is to design custom mailer boxes with expert support. Most products that have non-standard sizes or need additional protection require custom mailer solutions. Our custom mailer boxes commonly range from a length of 3 inches to 25, a width of 2 inches to 25, and a depth of 1 inch to 15.

What are the Different Mailer Box Types?

For easy assembly, folding, and unfolding, the standard Roll End Front Tuck Box (REFT) with wings is the most common mailer box. While it does not use any adhesive for product packaging, it remains a reliable, go-to option for shipping. The second most common type of mailer box uses adhesive sealing. Commonly used by personal care brands, the adhesive adds an additional layer of security to protect product integrity. Custom mailer boxes without wings are typically smaller and paired with a minimalist design.

Achieve Bolder Designs for Less with Great Printing Options

Mailers offer the opportunity for double-sided printing, so your custom colors and design can communicate your story inside and outside the box as well. Discover how to get the best of both worlds with our high-precision flexographic printing, the most common corrugated printing method. Not only does it provide beautiful print and exact color registration, but it is also one of the most versatile and economical printing processes. The graphics our team can execute are virtually limitless — if you can picture it, we can deliver it!
