More Info on cardboard boxes and packaging

With more than 30 years’ experience of supplying commercially focused, custom cardboard boxes, GWP understand the science of corrugated packaging. This includes the need for transit protection, stacking strength, ease of assembly, packing and opening, presentation, and in many cases, all of the above

With GWP having worked with companies of all sizes and in practically every industry – including businesses just like yours – it means you can tap into extensive expertise in cushioning, ESD protection, product presentation and cost reduction, with many successful custom packaging designs requiring combinations of all of these features.

Besides a custom packaging design service, you are also able to take advantage of a huge selection of industry standard designs and boxes.

Using either the FEFCO standard layouts or the catalogue of designs GWP has developed over 20 plus years, you can source a cost effective solution that will still offer excellent performance and durability.

Using a range of manufacturing techniques, including die cutting, rotary die cutting, case making, multi-point gluing and folding, plus hand assembly, you can specify standard cartons, crash lock boxes, trays, corrugated dividers and practically any form of cardboard box imaginable.

Enhancing your cardboard boxes

Widely used for their strength, durability, lightness, recyclability, and cost-effectiveness, cardboard boxes and packaging manufactured by GWP are used in an extensive range of industries.

Saying that, it is possible to enhance your corrugated packaging in a number of ways.

Usually providing the outer protection for a product, your cardboard boxes can provide even greater levels of performance through the addition of corrugated fittings such as dividers or inserts, foam end caps and other forms of void fill.

You can also further enhance the exterior of the corrugated cardboard box depending on its intended application.

This can include adding branding and graphics for retail packaging, whilst also providing identification and instructions for transit packaging.

Regardless of your specific product, application or market, by souring your business’ cardboard boxes through GWP, you can be certain of tailored performance, pleasing aesthetic appearance and genuine cost effectiveness.

Cardboard Box FAQs

Common questions on the topic of cardboard boxes

The below section covers a number of the most commonly asked questions concerning the cardboard boxes and packaging that GWP supply.

Still need further information? Then please speak to an adviser by calling 01793 754 444, or dropping us a line on [email protected]

What types of cardboard box are available?

There are an almost unlimited number of cardboard box options available. Everything from simple corrugated cartons to intricate transit packaging with custom fittings, ecommerce unboxing packs through to retail ready presentation boxes. GWP can supply all of these and more, thanks to our own manufacturing equipment and in-house packaging design studio.

Can you make custom cardboard boxes?

Virtually all of the cardboard boxes that GWP supply are customised in some way or another. Even standard designs such as the FEFCO range of boxes are typically manufactured at custom sizes to suit your specific product or requirements. GWP believe that, by only supplying custom cardboard boxes, it allows for a much more cost effective solution over the longer term.

I need a single cardboard box – can you help?

GWP are a manufacturer of bespoke cardboard boxes, and typically supply them to businesses. This means that we do not keep a standard range of boxes in stock, which in turn means we are not able to help with very low order volumes. We would recommend seeking out an online seller of standard cartons for requirements of this nature.

Can I buy cardboard boxes from GWP if I don’t need them for a business?

Whilst GWP are geared up towards working with businesses, we can supply sole traders and organisations of all sizes. However, it must be noted that minimum order quantities (MOQs) apply to all the products we sell. Whilst this determined by the overall size of the cardboard box you need, this typically starts at a few hundred for large boxes, and can be in the thousands form smaller ones. If in doubt, please contact us for further advice.

What are the different types of corrugated cardboard material?

There are many variations in terms of the corrugated cardboard material available, which can obviously influence the strength, cost, and appearance of your cardboard boxes. Typically, you can choose from a single or double walled material, with a kraft (brown) or white finish (although these are available in different weights too). For a full overview, this guide to corrugated board grades may prove useful.

Can my cardboard boxes be printed?

Any cardboard boxes that GWP manufacture can be printed. In fact, your printed cardboard boxes and packaging can comprise anything from simple, single colour logos, all the way through the full colour, photographic quality imagery.

Are cardboard boxes suitable for ecommerce packaging?

One of the reasons there has been a growth in the use of cardboard boxes and packaging is the explosion in online shopping. Cardboard boxes are perfect for single trip ecommerce applications, providing a cost effective yet durable solution that can also carry your branding (for the all-important unboxing experience).

Buy Cardboard Boxes

Business supply of cardboard boxes and packaging

If you are an individual looking for a single or low volume of cardboard boxes, then unfortunately GWP Group are not able to help (and would not be competitive compared to online stockists selling standard sizes cartons anyway).

However, if you are a business, or have an ongoing requirement, GWP can offer you a wealth of benefits. Everything from custom design to stock management, streamlining of existing inventories to full printing capabilities, your cardboard boxes and packaging can be made to work harder and provide true value for money.
