Internal Divisions in Packaging
An empty cardboard box can be the ideal packaging solution for your goods. It offers maximum freedom; put in it what you like and off it goes in the post.
The question is, what condition are those products in when they reach the customer? Do they open the box to find a jumbled mess? Have the goods inside become damaged from bashing or rubbing against each other?
Yes, you could wrap each item in bubble wrap, fill gaps with air pockets or polystyrene chips. At Aylesbury Box Company, we actively encourage our customers away from that approach. The reason; it is an expensive, time-consuming and environmentally damaging solution. There is also a far more effective option – cardboard dividers.
Why Box Dividers are a Great Packaging Option
As champions of sustainable packaging, our advice would be to opt for internal dividers. These can be made from sustainable and protective corrugated cardboard. Cut to the exact dimension to hold your products in place within the box, these inserts are a low-cost, yet bespoke packaging solution.
The internal box dividers can be an integral part of every box we manufacture for you. Alternatively, they can be sold separately as unassembled inserts. As such, you have the flexibility to use a standard box or a compartmentalised box, depending on the order.
Being made to fit, the unassembled dividers can be inserted with ease. Along the packing line, goods can be quickly slotted into the compartments. Are you ready to boost packing efficiency and save the financial and environmental cost of keeping supplies of bubble wrap and polystyrene in stock? With an increasing number of customers rejecting plastic packaging, cardboard dividers can stop you making the wrong impression.
With cardboard dividers, each item is held securely in place. This means it is presented in the same way when the box is opened by the customer. If you want to further enhance the presentation, you could opt for flood printed cardboard dividers. This delivers a high impact effect for a relatively low budget and can boost the perception of your goods.
Protecting Goods in Transit with Cardboard Dividers
With some product ranges, it is vital to keep components apart during shipping. Electronic devices are a great example; there may be a risk of the parts igniting if they come into contact. By using cardboard dividers, this risk is negated.
Separating each item also helps to prevent items from getting damaged, broken or scratched in transit. This reduces the risk of returns and waste, both of which can eat away at your profits. If your goods look as good as when they first came off the production line, it helps your brand to retain a reputation for providing quality products.
With spices, perfumes, candles and other scented products, dividers can help to separate aromas. They prevent individual fragrances from being over-powered by others in the same box. Can you see how this packaging solution could help to protect your goods?
Increasing the Rigidity of the Box
Whilst cardboard packaging is robust, internal dividers also add to the rigidity of the box. This can enhance the protective qualities. In our experience, this adds to the fact that dividers are ideal for fragile items such as bottles or ceramics and malleable items such as soaps.
