About wine bottle boxes with integral fittings

Wine bottle boxes protect your bottles during shipping. Particularly suited to 750ml bottles, GWP can manufacture your bottle packaging to specific sizes. Using custom wine bottle boxes ensures a perfect fit and improved performance.

You can also decide how many bottles to include in your boxes, with options for 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12 bottle packs.

Dividers and fittings

Regardless of your size and configuration, your wine bottle boxes include a crash lock base that allows for quick and easy assembly by your packing staff. This design also allows your packaging to be stored flat before use, minimising storage requirements.

Your wine bottle boxes also include integral dividers and fittings. The divisions allow easier packing and increased fulfilment velocity by improving staff productivity.

The fittings also separate and secure your bottles during shipping, preventing them from damaging each other. Enhanced protection during shipping can significantly reduce your costs by eliminating returns and replacements caused by breakages.

Coupled with carefully chosen, durable cardboard materials, custom wine bottle boxes can virtually eliminate damage caused by mishandling.

Custom printed wine bottle boxes

You can also add print to the exterior faces of your wine bottle packaging.

Printed wine bottle boxes allow you to add branding, instructions, and symbols to ensure proper handling.

You can also add appropriate recycling symbols, enabling your customers to dispose of the packaging correctly. Wine bottle boxes are fully recyclable, plastic-free, and accepted in standard household recycling schemes.

How many bottles can fit in a wine bottle box?

You can choose an appropriate size and configuration by using custom wine bottle boxes. There are options for 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12-bottle boxes. You can also source single-bottle boxes for sending individual units.

What size is a 12-bottle wine box?

A 12-bottle wine box, using a standard material and design, is roughly 350mm x 270 mm x 335 mm (length x width x depth). However, you can select a custom size for specific bottle shapes and designs if required.

Do wine bottle boxes use double-wall cardboard?

Wine bottle boxes with integral fittings typically use a single wall material. This material is lighter to minimise costs, CO2 emissions, and the prices you pay. The unique integral fittings provide suitable strength and durability. However, double-wall wine bottle boxes are available on request.

Can wine bottle boxes be printed?

Printing your wine bottle boxes provides several benefits. Besides adding the logo of your vineyard or eCommerce store, you can also include handling and recycling instructions. Standard symbols can help prevent mishandling in transit, further protecting your shipment.

What is a crash-lock wine bottle box?

Crash lock refers to packaging assembled simply by pulling apart the box’s corners. This action expands the base, which locks together using tabs. As well as being quick to erect, crash lock boxes do not require tape for their closure.

Pricing of custom wine bottle packaging

It is surprising how much variance there can be in the sizes and styles of wine bottles. But this means stock wine bottle boxes are often a compromise between these sizes.

As such, all bottle packaging GWP supplies is manufactured bespoke. Choosing the exact size and options you require ensures your packaging protects your bottles in transit.

Free quotes and advice

This approach means it is impossible to list pricing, however. Whilst custom wine bottle boxes are usually more cost-effective in the mid to long term, the size, configuration, material, printing, and various other options must all be considered when calculating your pricing.

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