Q:

What is a mailer box?

A:

A mailer box is a type of paperboard packaging that can be easily assembled with the help of interlocking tabs without the need of any glue or adhesives.  As mailer boxes are completely collapsible, they can be shipped and stored flat to optimize shipping and storage costs.  Also known as one-piece-mailer boxes, these boxes are an ideal solution for displaying as well as safely shipping your products.  For an enhanced visual impact, these boxes can be printed full colour on both the outside as well as the inside.


Q:

What does the term ‘dust flap’ refer to when designing a mailer box?

A:

The folding flaps on either side of the top lid are called dust flaps. When tucked in, these flaps not only block dust from entering the box but also serve as an additional wall that adds to the vertical strength of the box.  Your account representative can help you find the most efficient solution in order to keep your total project costs low.

What are ‘cherry flap’ boxes?

The boxes without cherry flaps are commonly to referred to as roll end tuck top boxes.

What are ‘roll end tuck front’ boxes?

A:

Mailer boxes that have both the cherry flaps and dust flaps are often referred to as ‘roll end tuck front’ boxes.

Q:

Can mailer boxes be used for shipping?

A:

Q:

Is there a minimum order quantity for mailer boxes?

A:

No, there is no minimum order for mailer boxes. You can order as few boxes as you like. Ordering a few boxes is perfect if you would like a sample to check out before committing to a larger order.

Q:

The proof for my mailer boxes looks blurry. Will it print that way?

A:

You will be contacted if your graphics appear to be at too low a resolution. If you have any concerns, please feel free to ask us a question.


Q:

Is a proof file sent before the final printing process?

A:

You will be emailed a proof PDF file prior to the printing process. Please review the proof very carefully for accuracy. It is important that you proof read the text also check the positioning of the artwork. Artwork is printed based on the CMYK or Pantone values embedded in the design file and may vary significantly from the colour shown in the proof when viewed on any particular screen.
