Why we love cardboard packaging

Cardboard packaging is all around us. From food and drink to general retail and freight, it’s used for most existing industries. Packaging doesn’t just need to transport a product and keep the item inside safe, it’s also used to help attract potential purchasers and sell more products.

At The Packaging Experts, cardboard is our all-time favourite material for packaging and we think it should be yours too. Here’s why:

 

  1. It’s the perfect shipping material

Cardboard packaging is lightweight which means it doesn’t add significant costs onto shipping, which is an important factor to consider. It is also particularly sturdy, meaning it is effective in protecting products when they are in transit – a key factor in minimising product replacements and associated costs.

 

  1. It can be made in any shape or size

One of the beauties of cardboard packaging is that it can be made in any shape or size, whether it’s a bog-standard box or something more original. The versatility that cardboard offers is unrivalled by any other material, which is why it is so popular for product packaging.

 

  1. It is environmentally friendly

In today’s world, all businesses should be trying to protect the environment and in doing so will increase their customer base. Cardboard packaging is recyclable and biodegradable, which makes it the perfect packaging material. What’s more, it avoids the pitfalls of plastic packaging, a topic hot on the environmental agenda.

 

  1. It’s cost effective

With the right kind of branding or special effects, cardboard packaging is often preferable over other packaging materials due to its low cost. Although it can be produced relatively cheaply, it has the potential to look luxuriously high end.

 

  1. It can be flat packed

Storing packaging can be a tricky task, but the fact that cardboard packaging can be flat packed makes it an attractive option. If you’re short on space, storing plastic moulded boxes or big structures can be an impossible task.
