Choosing the correct packaging materials is extremely important and will vary depending on your company’s needs.

Each package varies and the material used to wrap them should be representative of its size, shape and structure.
Corrugated paper is an extremely popular packaging material choice, with over 50% of goods packaged worldwide using corrugated paper or cardboard as part of their packaging strategy. It is made up of a combination of two sheets called liners, glued to an inner layer known as fluting. These three layers act as a surface that not only insulates, but supports great weights. Corrugated paper is durable and strong, but is extremely lightweight too, making it preferable to other materials such as wood as it cuts down on transport expenses making it very cost effective. Another reason it is so cost effective is that corrugated paper can be folded down during delivery so offers buyers great space efficiency. Not only is corrugated paper lightweight and cost effective it is also versatile as it can be printed on, or left plain to suit your company’s needs.
