Custom rigid boxes are an excellent solution for packaging products that need to be shipped. They’re strong, durable, and cost-effective, but the price of custom wooden boxes varies depending on several factors. The following blog post will explore few of these factors so you can get an idea of what affects the cost before ordering your next batch.
The size of the custom rigid boxes you order will affect its cost. Full-sized to nearly full-sized containers are more expensive than smaller ones due to higher material costs and more significant labor needed for assembly. For example, small foldable cartons made from cardboard may only cost around $0.60 each, while large shipping crates can reach up to $20 per box.
The type of material used to construct the boxes will also affect their cost. Ordinary corrugated cardboard is a popular choice for custom rigid boxes because it’s inexpensive and easy to work with. Still, this medium may not be ideal when shipping heavy or fragile products that require better protection from impact damage.
The shape of custom rigid boxes also affects their cost. Square containers are the cheapest to produce, so if you want a package that’s more secure and durable with less surface area exposed to wear and tear during shipment, opt for a rectangular or irregularly shaped container instead.
Custom rigid boxes with printing incur an additional cost. If you require that the package be printed with your company name, logo, or other design elements on one side or all four sides, this will increase its price due to higher material and labor costs for screen printing.
The factors above are important considerations when estimating how much a custom order of shipping boxes might set you back. However, there is another factor affecting the overall cost of these products – volume.
