About single bottle boxes

Successful shipping of bottles is difficult. Glass bottles tend to be relatively fragile, and their contents can be of significant value. They can also cause damage to other items if they break in transit.

Yet whilst stock mailing boxes provide some protection, custom-sized bottle packaging offers several benefits.

Custom bottle postal boxes typically use a durable double-wall material and stapled joints. However, being tailored to the bottles you use also improves transit protection.

Adding cardboard fittings, foam, Korrvu bottle packs, or Flexi-Hex adds cushioning against shock, impact and mishandling too.

Custom single-bottle boxes

Using custom size bottle postal boxes has other advantages.

Bespoke dimensions minimise material usage and costs. It also reduces the volume of void fill that you would otherwise need to fill the empty space within the outer pack.

You can also have print added to the exterior of your bottle packaging. Printed bottle boxes provide a branding opportunity and enable the inclusion of handling information. Warnings that the contents are fragile and require careful handling are particularly useful.

All single-bottle boxes you source for your business are fully recyclable, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

Key benefits of single bottle boxes

  • Produced from durable double-wall material.
  • Bespoke sizes tailored to your specific bottles improve protection.
  • Stapled seams for additional strength.
  • Supplied flat for easy assembly with tape or glue.
  • Boxes can feature printed logos, branding, and handling instructions.
  • Compatible with various inserts to protect against mishandling.
  • Fully recyclable and biodegradable.

Can bottle boxes be custom sizes?

Your business can specify the exact size of your bottle mailing boxes. Doing so allows for less material use and potentially reduces your costs by using less void fill.

Are these boxes strong enough to protect bottles during shipping?

Single bottle boxes use a strong, durable double-wall material. They also feature stapled seams for additional strength. As such, they are a tried and tested method for shipping bottles of all shapes and sizes.

Are these compatible with additional inserts or cushioning?

It can be wise to include inserts that provide additional protection against mishandling. Your business can choose from various environmentally friendly options, including cardboard inserts, Flexi-Hex, Korrvu, or foam end caps.

Can these bottle postal boxes be printed?

Your cardboard bottle boxes can include various print options. Printing allows you to add your logo, branding and marketing messages. You can also provide essential handling instructions.

Is it possible to purchase a single-bottle mailing box?

GWP Packaging is a B2B trade supplier. As such, you cannot purchase one-offs and very low volumes, and it would not be cost-effective for you to do so. Please feel free to get in touch if you need clarification or would like a quote on the MOQ (minimum order quantity).

How many bottles can fit in these boxes?

These boxes are for sending a single bottle via postal or courier networks. However, a range of multi-bottle packaging boxes with dividers allows you to send larger shipments.

Bespoke pricing for bespoke products

There are many benefits to using custom bottle postal boxes (and bespoke packaging in general). Improved protection. Less material usage. Better presentation. Even easier assembly. But if you use custom boxes, surely you want pricing to match?

All bottle boxes GWP Packaging manufacture and supply are bespoke and tailored to your business’s exact requirements. This approach means that, apart from the numerous benefits, you also get pricing that reflects the packaging you are purchasing.

Free quotes and advice

Doing this typically makes your packaging considerably more cost-effective, but is why you cannot see prices listed on this site.

It does, however, mean you can request a no-obligation quote. You can also ask for impartial advice on the best packaging for your application. A free sampling service to ensure suitability before production is also available.

Please note: Minimum order quantities (MOQs) apply to these bottle boxes. The exact number is dependent on the size and options you select. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
