Protection: The best corrugated boxes are performance rated by ASTM International's Standards for their most important function—protecting the product inside, and based on ISTA requirements. Different flute styles and board tests in Mullen or ECT (Edge Crush Test) will provide the selection to choose the best fit for your product's requirement.

Cost Effectiveness: Your corrugated boxes should maximize your cost effectiveness—firstly, by being competitively priced, and secondly, by optimally utilizing the space within the box to make the cost of shipping optimized.
Common Customized Box Types
At Brown Packaging, we've developed custom boxes in nearly every industry for nearly every purpose. Our most common box types are listed here:

HSC Boxes (Half Slotted Container): Similar to RSC boxes with the exception of top flaps. Size and application vary from bin box alternative to Gaylord boxes.
Telescopic Boxes: Telescopic boxes consist of two pieces that fold into one complete box—most well known as ‘shoeboxes’. Due to its overlapping construction, this style boxes provide extra protection for the product inside.
Mailer Boxes: Mailer Boxes are one piece of cardboard, expertly assembled by our engineers to fold into itself, sealing completely. Mailer boxes are incredibly sturdy and do not use excess materials such as tape or glue. Some common Mailer box styles are OPF (One Piece Folder), VDF (Vari depth Folder) and variations of Indestructo Mailers, RETT (Roll End Tuck Top Mailers) or TTM (Tuck Top Mailers) including dust flaps and cherry locks. Along with RSCs, these mailer boxes can be the perfect shipping box solution you've been looking for. Custom shipping boxes can boost brand recognition, increase repeat ordering, and fix packaging issues.
