Terms & Conditions
You want to buy some box's:
You will need to know the size of the box that is required. If you are unsure then click here for information on how to measure a box.
If you are looking to buy either a custom produced small run of a product or a large quantity of any box type (5000 units plus) then use the Volume Producer Search and select. However if you need a specialist product it will be to your advantage to use the Packaging Resource Directory above. You could also post any request in Pitch For Tender as a Buyer.
Do you know the type of pack or box that you need?
I do know the box type!! Then enter the pack type or clear description in the Packaging Resource Directory search above. You might search for pizza, bottle, produce, shoe, pallet or just corrugated cartons. Be as specific as possible.
I don't know the box type that I need. Then enter the PRODUCT type that you wish to pack in the Box Finder search above. You might enter wine, perfume, cakes, bread or components etc.
Once you have entered the box type or product in the search box you can select the location setting.
You can select a regional search by clicking on the local area of interest or a total search by selecting 'any location'.
For a 'Trade' manufacturer, add "trade" after the description
For a 'Stock' manufacturer, add "stock" after the description
Finally, press The database will return full search results with a list of box or carton manufacturers that produces exactly the type of product that you need in the specified geographical area. To widen the parameters of the search use 'any locations' when searching.
In addition to a search for a box or an industry, you can also enter your county or town as a search parameter in order to find just local manufacturers.
Do you want a specially produced box or do you want a stock box?
I want to find someone who can supply stock boxes - Enter the box description and the word 'stock', for example "bottle" and "stock". You can also use the Box Size Search and search for the exact box size you require and see who stocks it (or the nearest to it).
I want to find someone who can produce a special size or style corrugated box's You can enter this search in the Volume Producer Search for small or volume orders, or the Box Finder search. You could enter custom produced cartons, bespoke corrugated etc. Once you have the name of a contact who is able to help you, you will now be able to contact them directly.
If you know what corrugated specification you need then you will be able to email or telephone them directly. You can also just make contact for help or advice.
