Save Time With A Professional Designer

Designing an appropriate box takes knowledge, and knowledge takes time. Hiring a professional box designer can help you save time when getting your packaging done in a timely fashion. That way, you don't have to affect your production, making your profits arrive faster.

Focusing on Finding Customers

As a business owner, I completely understand this part right here. If you're unsure how you need to create or design a box, you're just focusing on the wrong task, leave that to a designer, and start focusing on finding customers for your business. It can take you months designing a proper box, and that's if you guessed it right, and the last thing you need is to waste time or money, I'm sure.

A Designer Can Determine Which Type Of Box Do You Need

Not every box is the same. You have shipping boxes, shelve boxes, shoe boxes, and every other kind of box out there, but every single one has a different purpose, and depending on your product and where it's going, we need to design something that fits that criteria. I'll explain something below so you can see exactly what I'm talking about.

Cardboard has different kinds of density. Some are called single wall, and others double wall. Double is more robust than single, but it is not necessary in most cases. The main problem I need you to understand about this is the following; Designing your product to fit the wrong type of box will be the difference between something that might not work and something that will cost you way more, but you didn't need it.

Let's dive deeper into the different types of flutes you have on the market. Flutes is the term used to understand the cardboard density, affecting your box and product in many ways.

Types Of Flutes:

A, B,C, E & F


Corrugated flutes come in a variety of thicknesses, with the thickest being the "A" flute, which is about 5 mm (about 1/4 of an inch) thick. One linear foot of packaging contains about 36 flutes.

The thicker fluting of an A flute makes it the go-to container for fragile objects that require special care. Additionally, this flute's sturdy construction makes it a good choice for shipping bulky items.


At about 3.2 mm (or 1/8 inch) in thickness, the B flute is right in the middle of the spectrum. A linear foot of packaging contains roughly 49 flutes.

Because it is resistant to crushing and puncturing, the B flute is frequently used for inner packaging components. This flute is ideally suited for printing text, images, and logos directly onto corrugated cardboard.

With a thickness of about 3.2 millimeters or 11/64 of an inch, the C flute is the second-thickest option for corrugated roofing. In other words, there are about 41 flutes for every foot of packaging.

When it comes to shipping boxes, a C flute is your best bet because it resists crusting and isn't easily compressed. Like the B flute, it has a nice smooth surface that prints well on promotional materials.


The E flute is the second-thinnest corrugated flute at about 1.6 mm or 1/16 inch in thickness. This equates to roughly 90 flutes per linear foot of product packaging.

Since E flutes are so slender, they take up very little room and are cheap to store. In addition to its use in music, this flute is widely employed in the packaging industry.


At about 0.8 millimeters (or 1/32 inch) in thickness, the F flute is the thinnest corrugated flute on the market. This equates to about 128 individual flutes per linear foot of packaging.

For some types of consumer goods, the F flute is the best option for the required stiff packaging.

Learn The Different Types Of Board Types You May Use For Your Boxes Or Displays

Although all corrugated packaging materials consist of both flutes and liners, the proportions of each can vary. There are four distinct types of boards to choose from, each with its own unique combination of flutes and liners:

Single Face:

With just one layer of fluting and one layer of liner, a single-face board has only two layers in total. Without a second liner, the board is not as sturdy as others. However, this type of board will significantly benefit inner packaging components that require additional cushioning.

Single Wall:

Most commonly, one uses a single-wall board, consisting of one fluting layer sandwiched between two liners. Because of its high insulation value and sturdy construction, this board is frequently used in shipping cartons.

Double Wall:

Five layers make up a double-wall board, with the center core being a liner and the outer two being fluting. This double wall structure functions essentially as two separate containers. That it can withstand the weight of heavy industrial equipment indicates its extreme durability.

Triple Wall:

There are a total of seven layers in a triple-wall board, including four liners and three layers of fluting. Just like the double wall, this board essentially combines three separate containers into one convenient package. Triple wall packaging is the most durable board type on the market, typically used for shipping crates and chemical containers.
