Many manufacturers and companies use carton boxes to load goods. Whether it is logistics or shipping goods, carton boxes are essential. Sometimes too many goods require a large number of carton orders. What should be paid attention to when ordering in carton orders?
1. The most basic condition: determine the length, width, and height of the carton
Generally, a three-layer carton, the thickness of the paper is about 3.5mm, and a five-layer carton is about 7mm, so you must first measure the length, width, and height of your actual items. Then add the thickness of the carton (add 0.5MM at the height of the carton as much as possible) ). It is the outer box size of the carton. Generally, the carton factory defaults to the outer box size. The outer box size design: Generally designed to have small width data as the most provincial material. So according to your own cargo situation, you must tell the carton factory that you The size said is the outer box size or the inner box size.
2. Select the material of the carton: corrugated paper, white cardboard, coated paper, etc.
We need to choose materials according to our own needs; reasonable choice of carton materials according to the weight of the goods and cost, the carton is made of cardboard, so we need to understand the concept of cardboard, we generally use corrugated cardboard, corrugated cardboard, corrugated paper, core Paper, paper. The quality of the material is usually related to the weight per square meter. The heavier the weight per square meter, the better the quality. The weight of the paper is 120 grams, 140 grams, 170 grams, 170 grams, 250 grams. In general, the carton paper is smooth from the appearance. It feels that the paper is probably described by its hardness. There is not much difference in the whole market paper.
3. Selection of carton thickness: according to the weight of the loaded items, there must be certain requirements for the thickness of the carton
The carton is classified by corrugated type: the thickness of the carton is generally three layers, five layers, seven layers, and nine layers. The thickness of the three layers is about 0.3MM, the thickness of the five layers is about 0.7MM, and the thickness of the seven layers is about 0.9MM. It is called single pit, and the fifth layer is also called double pit. The thickness of the reinforced and hardened carton is the same, only the hardness is divided.
4. Printing problems: The printing problem of the box is also the key in customizing the carton. If the printing range is large, the cost will naturally be higher.
In general, the larger the surface area of printing, the higher the cost. Of course, it depends on the number of colors. Once the carton is printed, it cannot be modified. So be sure to confirm the printed content with the carton manufacturer several times. Errors can be covered with self-adhesive stickers or warm water stickers with a color similar to the appearance of the carton, but it is not beautiful enough. Give the most accurate printing information as much as possible, and supervise the carton manufacturers to print strictly according to requirements.
If the cooperation intention with the carton manufacturer is determined, and the paper and the cooperation method are agreed, the carton factory may be required to provide a sample box.The carton template is generally not printed, and the main purpose is to determine the paper quality, size and process quality.
6. MOQ: MOQ is also one of the important issues, according to the initial requirements of the manufacturer of the carton
The carton factory has a problem of minimum order quantity. The minimum order quantity is 30 square meters. The minimum order quantity of different carton factories is different. It is generally recommended to make more cartons at a time. The less you order, the more expensive the price will be. .
7. Carton hardness:
As long as it is continuous rain or wet, even the original hard carton will become soft (the same as the new order).
8. Carton color:
The color of all carton cardboard cannot be 100% the same as the last color. If the color requirements are extremely high, it must be connected with the carton manufacturer.
