Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose a shipping box or a mailer?

If you are shipping something heavy or bulky, or if you typically ship a combination of different items at a time, shipping boxes are likely the best packaging supplies you can use for your business. We also recommend custom-printed shipping boxes to companies that really want to deliver an exceptional, unique delivery experience.

However, mailers are less expensive, use less material, and allow for a lower cost of shipping to your customers.

Learn more about choosing between a mailer and a shipping box here.

Why can’t I order certain shipping box sizes?

Due to the capabilities of our machinery, there are some restrictions on the sizes of corrugated boxes we can cut and the sizes we can custom print. You will see an error message if you input box dimensions that we cannot cut or print. To learn more about our parameters and what we offer, contact us.

Why are large shipping boxes expensive to ship?

We ship our boxes flat. Because of this, oversized cardboard boxes are costly to ship.

When will I receive my shipping boxes?

Lead time is the estimated time to process your order for shipment, not including transit time. For branded orders, lead time begins after artwork proof and, if applicable, ink swatch approval.

What does this mean?

When you place a branded order, our Design Team reviews the artwork files attached to your order and creates an artwork proof. We’ll then send you the proof to review and approve. At this time, we’ll highlight any adjustments made, emphasize potential print risks, and request additional files or information.

Once the proof suits your design vision and aligns with our printing capabilities, we'll request your written approval. After we receive your written approval, your lead time begins.

Find your lead time here.

What is your most sustainable printing ink?

Even the most sustainable (water and soy-based) inks are made with carbon-based pigments. We are proud to offer Algae Ink™ for black box prints.

Made by Living Ink Technologies, Algae Ink is the world’s most sustainable ink. It is a water-based ink with pigment made with algae cells rather than carbon. This exciting advancement in ink is a carbon-negative technology since Algae Ink captures more carbon than is used to produce it.

If you want to use Algae Ink for your custom-printed shipping boxes, select “Algae Ink” as your color option.

How much are printing plates?

Our tiered pricing structure for printing plates is based on the style and size of your box and the number of printed panels. Prices start at $95 for a single panel print, average about $200 for a mid-coverage print, and can be $300-800 for a full-coverage print. Each printed color and printed side will require a plate. Plates are a one-time cost for a particular design, meaning you can use your plates repeatedly to reprint new boxes with no additional plate fees.
