5 Advantages of Choosing Custom Corrugated Mailer Boxes

At Build A Box, we have five different types of shipping boxes available, each able to be customized to your exact specifications. With so much choice, it can be hard to decide which option is the best one for you and your company, especially if you’re using our self-guided online design tool. If you’re wondering whether mailer boxes are the ideal choice for your company’s needs, consider these five significant benefits of choosing custom corrugated mailer boxes from Build A Box.

1. Durable & Safe for Shipping

Mailer boxes are a premier choice for those seeking a custom-fit solution that will protect products in transit and hold up to the wear and tear of the postal system. Not only do mailer boxes help prevent splitting, tearing, and bursting, but they possess water-resistant features. Whether your packages get tossed around at the sorting facility or caught in the rain, you can rest assured your orders will arrive at their destination safe and sound. At Build A Box, you can even choose your box strength from four different options for further customization that will enhance durability. Our thickest option can support up to 120 pounds in weight, so you’re guaranteed to find an option that suits your product.

2. Premium Unboxing Experience

One of the biggest reasons why customers choose mailer boxes for their custom printed shipping boxes is because it’s a favorite among customers. The mailer box’s self-closing style in combination with its potential for double-sided, full-color graphics makes the unboxing experience an exciting and elevated one over typical, open-from-the-top shipping boxes. Especially in the age of social media, creating an exciting and shareable unboxing experience can increase brand awareness and customer loyalty, helping you earn a sizable return on investment for your custom packaging boxes.

3. Improved Brand Perception

Custom packaging makes a brand seem more upscale according to 68% of consumers, and 61% say that custom boxes get them more excited about receiving their package. By customizing your mailer boxes with your brand’s unique logo and colors, you’re guaranteed to impress your customers and improve their perception of your company. 

4. Easy to Store

Mailer boxes are a great option for companies with limited space, as their construction makes them incredibly easy to store. Mailer boxes are manufactured and can be provided to you completely flat. They can then be constructed and closed easily prior to shipping with no tape required. If you don’t have room for hundreds or thousands of bulky boxes stacked up in your warehouse or office, mailer boxes are the ideal space-saving solution. 

5. Versatile Design Possibilities

Mailer boxes are one of the most versatile box types available. You can create virtually anything you can imagine thanks to the double-sided, full-color graphics. Don’t just stamp your logo on the outside of the box; cover it in your custom branding and help increase brand awareness as your package travels to its destination. Don’t just leave a flyer inside the order; say thanks to your customer, reinforce your branding, or promote your newest product on the inside flap with high-quality graphics. Customers appreciate a special touch and the feeling of luxury, so be sure to give both to them with the unlimited possibilities of custom printed shipping boxes.
