Many manufacturers and companies use cartons 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 carton orders?
1.The most basic condition: determine the length, width and height of the carton
Generally three-layer cartons, the thickness of the paper is about 3.5mm, and the five-layer cartons are 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 as much as possible at the height of the carton ). 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, the width data is designed to be the most provincial material. Therefore, 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:
So we have to choose materials according to our own needs; choose the carton materials reasonably according to the weight of the goods and the 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 to make. 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.The choice 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, five, seven, and nine. The thickness of the three layers is about 0.3MM, the thickness of five layers is about 0.7MM, and the thickness of seven layers is about 0.9MM. It is called a single pit, and the fifth layer is also called a double pit. The thickness of the reinforced and hardened carton is the same, only the hardness is divided.
4.The problem of printing: the problem of printing the box is also the key to custom carton, if the printing area is large, the cost will naturally be higher
In general, the larger the surface area of the printing, the higher the cost. Of course, it depends on the number of colors. Once the carton is printed, it cannot be modified. Therefore, you must confirm the printed content with the carton manufacturer several times. The 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 quotation paper and the cooperation method have reached a consensus, the carton factory can be required to provide a sample box.
MOQ is also an important issue, according to the initial requirements of the manufacturer of the carton
Carton factories have a minimum order quantity problem, 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 .
As long as it is continuous rain or wet, even the original hard carton will become soft (the same as the new order).
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.
