Detailed information on telescopic boxes
If you only ship a very limited range of products from your online store – or they are all of a very similar size – making use of custom sized ecommerce boxes provides a huge range of benefits.
But what if all your products are different sizes? Or you send varying combinations of products, making the sizes of box required vary significantly?
Well, one option, rather than having a huge inventory of different sized ecommerce packaging, is to use telescopic boxes. These boxes feature a separate lid and base, and with the lid having the ability to be moved up and down as required, it allows the internal size of the box to be altered.
This in turn allows for multiple different sizes of product or order to be accommodated.
Besides this size flexibility, there are other benefits too.
This includes the nature of the design meaning that, even using a single wall material, telescopic boxes are very sturdy and durable (the material folds to make double / triple wall construction in certain parts).
They are also supplied flat to save on transit and storage costs, yet are easy and quick to assemble (helping with staff productivity and efficiency).
Telescopic boxes can also be printed using a range of methods, allowing you to add logos, branding, handling instructions and promotional messages. And besides this, they are fully recyclable and biodegradable.
Even though telescopic boxes are adjustable by their nature, GWP will still manufacture any postal boxes (and accompanying inserts if required) to bespoke sizes and specifications. This means not only more efficient use of material (and minimising secondary packaging), but allows analysis of which sizes will allow your ecommerce business to be most efficient.

Common questions on telescopic boxes
Please see below for a range of often asked questions about telescopic boxes.
What are telescopic boxes manufactured from?
Telescopic boxes are typically manufactured from a single wall cardboard. However, due to the folding nature of the design, many parts of the constructed box are actually double or even triple walled. This makes them durable enough for a range of applications.
Will these boxes fit all of my products?
Telescopic boxes allow you to adjust the height of the packs, allowing you to accommodate differing sizes or combinations of products. However, GWP will also manufacture these bespoke to your requirements, ensuring that virtually any product can be shipped safely.
Can telescopic boxes be printed?
Telescopic boxes with printing provide a number of benefits. This includes adding your logo and branding, handling instructions for couriers, and even returns or other important info for the end consumer. All telescopic boxes sourced from GWP can be printed using a number of methods.
Are telescopic boxes recyclable?
Being manufactured from corrugated cardboard, telescopic boxes are easily recycled (including kerb side recycling schemes). This not only reduces your ecommerce business’ environmental impact, but is a big plus point for your customers too.
Can I purchase a single telescopic box?
Unfortunately GWP are not able to supply “one off” boxes to individuals, being geared towards serving business and trade customers. If you need a very low volume, an online retailer of packaging may be your best option.
