Context Media 11x12x2 mailer box

We freely share the information we have gathered along the way and here are a few things that usually get a quick “I didn’t know that” from our customers and friends.

  • The Long Dimension is Not Always Across the Front

In most designs that you see out there, the box length is from the front (left corner to the front right corner) and it happens to be the longest dimension of the three (L x W x H) . Mailers are made that way primarily for ease of opening and removal of the product being shipped.

However, in some applications like the one shown in the photo, the product will present better if the longer dimension is front to back so that something like a title or photo is positioned … Read More

Shipping Boxes that WOW with Bright, Flood Coat Printing

stock 8-9-4 box printed in and out

As the late night radio deejays used to say – The hits just keep on coming! We can relate to that in the area of great looking, custom printed e-commerce and subscription boxes.

What is a flood coat print?

Definitions may differ, but for us it is an edge to edge print of any one color, with 75% or more ink coverage. In most cases it is printed over white and the copy is reverse printed, creating a two color look with only one ink color … Read More

Rigid carton and box examples

Shipping a box within a box has been around for some time, made popular by companies like Birchbox, who have been using that concept for years. It is a great way to create an upscale image while providing a branded container that the consumer is more likely to keep and reuse. The sad fact is that most of the beautiful e-commerce and subscription service boxes we help create, quickly end up as paper waste soon after they arrive at their destination.

The Branded Corrugated Outer Shipper Container

In most cases it can be a simplified version of a corrugated container because the added strength of the inside container, the shipper box, does not require the same level of sturdiness. Quite often rather than a die cut mailer, customers will use … Read More
