Enlightened by Chipboard Boxes

Chipboard BoxesDo you ever sometimes in your mind refer to certain things a certain way, but they are kind of hard to verbalize?  It makes sense in your head, so it really doesn’t matter whether or not you can say it out loud? And then one day, out of nowhere, you learn the term for whatever that thing was and suddenly you feel enlightened and slightly smarter?  In the end, that piece of information is relatively useless, but at least it is a new fun fact learned.  Let me give you a personal example.  The boxes that are commonly used to package gifts.  In my mind this is how I think of them: they are not technically cardboard, however they are sturdier than paper.  They have fancy little tabs on the sides that allow them to fold and lock together.  What do you call them? Gift boxes? I guess you could call them a gift box, but then again they are used for so many other things as well; not just gifts.  They are often used to package cakes and other baked goods.  They are also the same type of boxes used to hold business cards.  Cupcake boxes?  Business card boxes?  There must be a name for these boxes that encompass all of these uses under one category.  Kind of like cardboard box.  We all know what they are immediately when you say the words, and we all understand there are a ton of uses for them.

I guess I never really needed to know how to refer to these mysterious foldable boxes.  I would get along fine without knowing and probably still do pretty well in the world.  However, the day arrived when I found out their name: chipboard boxes.  What comes to mind when you hear the word chipboard? I personally think of wood chips or a box made out of cork board (I guess because it has kind of a wood chip like appearance).  Anyways, now I am enlightened.  I now know how to properly refer to a foldable paper box.  Paper that is strong, yet not strong enough to be considered cardboard.  A paper box that can hold so many items, such as gifts, business cards, and baked goods.  I now feel slightly smarter with my new piece of useless knowledge.  I cannot wait to use the term chipboard box in normal conversation, and no one will probably know what I am talking about.

If you are one of the rare, wise people who already knew what a chipboard box was, and you want to order some; or if after reading this riveting information it reminded you that you needed some boxes to mail your gifts in this year, head to PackagingSupplies.com to order brown or white chipboard boxes in multiple sizes.  They are super cheap and high quality.  Place your order before 1PM EST to be shipped out same day.


Corrugated Cardboard Boxes: What are they?

Corrugated Cardboard BoxesCorrugated cardboard boxes are heavily used in the packing and shipping industry because of their strength and durability.  Corrugated cardboard is extremely stiff and almost impossible to bend.  This is important in making sure that goods arrive safely to their final destination; from the initial manufacturing stage to distribution to sale to end use.  Imagine how frustrated the Piggly Wiggly employee would be if when he opened his shipment he just had a bunch of busted can of biscuits?  First off, it would be a doughy mess.  He would then have to deal with getting a replacement and will lose revenue.  And ultimately the busted can of biscuits will just be an allegory about how he feels about his waistline.

Corrugated cardboard boxes are made out of corrugated fiberboard.  It is a paper based material, made out of 2 flat liner boards and a fluted corrugated sheet.  I will paint you a picture.  If you took a piece of corrugated cardboard and you cut it with a knife, what you would see in the middle of the cardboard would look almost like honeycomb.  It is hard to describe, but that is what the ‘corrugation’ is.  It creates little air pockets and makes the board itself extremely difficult to tamper with.  The boxes are manufactured on large machines called corrugators, and run about 500 feet per minute.  That’s a lot of honeycomb!  The corrugated boxes are also excellent to recycle.  They can be compressed and packed together for affordable shipping.  They are then put into a large vat of warm water called a hydropulper in order to clean and process them into a pulp that will be reused to make new paper and fiber products.

Properly Moving & Moving Boxes for Sale

There is so much planning that goes into moving. To prepare for a move, you must assess if and how your current furniture and belongings will fit into your new space.  A lot of times furniture can look great in one house, and then look completely misplaced in another.  In this situation you might think about selling some of your bigger items such as couches, beds, armoires, etc. This also might be an excellent time to go through things that you haven’t touched in years and sort through them to decide whether or not you need to keep them.  Less is better.  You might think you are not one of those people, and you only have things that you need and use.  But you will probably surprise yourself when it is time to pack up and you find yearbooks from 2nd grade and cards from your fifth birthday party from people you have no recollection of.

Once you asses your furniture situation and cut down on some of your stuff by donating the usable things and throwing out the rest, it is time to carefully pack up.  Carefully, being the keyword.  I have heard countless horror stories about things like fine china that was passed down from generation to generation shattered during a move.  If you are packing up yourself, make sure you go the extra mile to provide cushion and padding to breakable items, and use boxes that properly fit your things.  The best place purchase supplies such as moving boxes for sale, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, etc. is PackagingSupplies.com.  There you will find anything you can dream up that would be necessary to move, and all at affordable prices.  The moving boxes for sale on the site include typical packing boxes of all shapes and sizes, dish packing boxes, picture frame boxes, lamp boxes, golf club boxes, and even stereo boxes.  Moving boxes that unique are typically pretty hard to find in a store, and if you do chances are that they won’t be the best pricing that is out there.
