Corrugated Packaging

Corrugated packaging comprises three thick paper sheets called containerboard. Two of these sheets are flat and line the outside of the board, while the third rippled sheet adheres to the linerboards with a starchy glue, resting in between them. Corrugated packaging is highly durable and has a strong structure, making it ideal for forming corrugated boxes.

When preparing your products, you need a packaging material that holds up against harsh shipping and handling conditions while keeping your items safe. Businesses have long relied on corrugated packaging as their shipping material due to its many structural, financial and environmental benefits.

You can find custom, durable and effective corrugated boxes to serve all your packaging needs at Great Northern Packaging. We can accommodate packages of any size or strength and have a comprehensive range of printing capabilities to meet your project scope, budget, and brand objectives.


Benefits of Using Corrugated Packaging

If you’re looking for a packaging material with a wide range of benefits, corrugated is a great choice. When you use corrugated boxes to package your products, you can expect the following advantages:

  • Maximum protection: Corrugated packaging comprises a multilayer design that acts as stable cushioning to safeguard items during transportation. These boxes also shield products from moisture, keeping them dry no matter the external conditions.
  • Cost efficiency: Because corrugated is such a lightweight material, it doesn’t increase the weight and, therefore, the cost of shipping products like heavier materials do. Corrugated boxes are also inexpensive to manufacture and don’t require costly labor.
  • Flexibility: Corrugated boxes come in many shapes, sizes and thicknesses that you can choose from based on your needs.
  • Customization options: You can customize your corrugated packaging with personalized labels, graphics, colors and text to better identify your brand.
  • Environmental friendliness: Custom corrugated packaging comprises organic, recyclable materials that don’t contain harmful chemicals. You can easily reuse or recycle your corrugated boxes to promote greater environmental sustainability.
