More information on archive box manufacture

Whilst most businesses will use archive boxes to some degree, there are specific industries where a high, ongoing use is required. This could be due to your company selling these on to end consumers, or being involved in specific industries such as self-storage.

GWP are able to help such businesses by manufacturing stock or bespoke archive boxes for these purposes.

Your archive boxes can be customised in terms of not just size, but also the type of lid (attached or removable), printing the exterior surfaces, or even coating with specialist finishes such as water resistant or all over colours.

Archive boxes can also be supplied in single or double wall material, as well as options for white or kraft (brown) finishes.

They can be packed in packs ready for convenient resale, or supplied flat for repacking as appropriate.

So if you have a trade requirement for archive boxes, please get in touch with GWP today.

Questions about archive boxes

Need an ongoing, volume supply of archive boxes, but not sure where to look? Or just have some questions before deciding if they are right for your business?

The below section provides general info / answers to archive box questions, or alternatively get in touch on 01793 754 444 for further assistance.

What are the standard size archive boxes?

Archive boxes will typically be manufactured and supplied in 2 stock sizes that correspond to standard document / paper sizes. A4 archive boxes tend to be 380 x 278 x 280 mm (internal dimensions), whilst A3 equivalents would be 425 x 330 x 254 mm.

Can I have a custom size archive box?

GWP can manufacture custom sized archive boxes if required, although these will be subject to minimum order quantities and will likely have tooling charges as well. However, they can be a cost-effective option for mid to high volumes and specialist requirements.

Can I purchase a single / low volume of archive boxes?

As a trade supplier, GWP are not able to supply single or low volume corrugated archive boxes. For individual requirements or typical business use, we would recommend speaking with an online retailer who will be able to supply an off the shelf product. If you are a reseller or have a high usage however, please get in touch to see how we can help.

Can archive boxes be printed?

Any archive boxes that GWP manufacture can be printed using a number of different techniques. This can be simple, single colour graphics, through to more complex diagrams and imagery. Please contact us for full details of the options available to your business.

Are archive boxes waterproof?

Standard corrugated cardboard archive boxes will provide relatively little protection against moisture / water. However, GWP can coat archive boxes with Liquigard water resistant coating to improve their performance in this area. You can also specify Correx® plastic archive boxes for even higher levels of protection.

Tailored Pricing / Specification

Source archive boxes for resale

GWP Packaging are not able to supply archive boxes to end users. This is because we manufacture all of your corrugated packaging to your specific requirements (and don’t hold stock of standard lines), resulting in minimum order quantities which are typically higher than an individual or an average business would require.

However, if you resell archive boxes or have a particularly high-volume usage, GWP will be able to help.

To get free advice on the best options for your specific application, and tailored, no obligation advice, please get in touch with GWP today.
