Frequently Asked Questions
OUR WIKI BOXOLOGY
Let's get started with this question: Do you make boxes?
Yes! Our boxes are 100% recyclable. Our boxes can be picked up in any kerbside collection.
Yes. All the paper used to manufacture our boxes are from suppliers who are certified by the FSC – Forest Stewardship Council. By being FSC certified it shows they comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.
There are 2 factors that impact corrugated board: Flute and Liners
Flute determines the profile of the board
This really depends on the product being packaged and the customer experience when they open the box. Things like the size, durability and purpose of the product all need to be taken into account when getting custom packaging. When you put through a quote request, we will recommend a box design and board grade to suit your product.
There is NO minimum. However, the price per box can go up in lower quantities, especially for custom boxes. Our prices include certain fixed costs which is averaged out over the number of boxes you get. So, any quantity is achievable but not every quantity is cost effective. If you need a small quantity, we recommend choosing an existing template from our stock box range.
Quantity also determines the production process we use. So litho and flexo printed boxes move to digital printing on shorter runs. Die cut boxes become plotter cut (CNC) on shorter runs. This can also affect the final price per box.
Yes! Samples are supplied on request and part of our order sign off process.
Yes! We can. With our state-of-the-art, commercial grade inkjet printer we print in full CMYK colour both inside and out.
While there are no limits overall, the kind of printing process used can limit the colours you can get, as well as the finish (matte, gloss, etc.)
For flexo printing, you can choose 1,2 or 3 colours.
For digital printing, you have the full range of CMYK colours.
For Litho printing, you have the full range of CMYK plus the option to add spot colours, varnishes (matte, gloss or spot) and laminates.
Boxes To Go use same day couriers to deliver around Melbourne Metro and Geelong. Local shipping is included in the quoted price.
Interstate freight will need to be quoted on a case-by-case basis.
If you have a good relationship with a freight company who deliver to your area, your rates are likely to be better than ours and you are welcome to arrange your own freight picked up from our factory in Sunshine North.
Plain cardboard boxes are around 5 days depending on the board used.
New die cut or printed work is 2-3 week from sign off.
Repeat printed (Flexo Boxes) are 5-7 working days
