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.

Can my cardboard boxes be printed?
