The first commercial cardboard box was manufactured in 1817 in England. By the turn of the twentieth century, cardboard boxes were ubiquitous and starting to replace wooden crates as packaging, helped along by foodstuffs like cornflakes which utilised cardboard packaging.
Most “cardboard boxes” nowadays are in fact made of corrugated fiberboard, not cardboard, but the name “cardboard box” endures.
Paperstone supply boxes of all shapes and sizes, including postal packs. You can also choose between single-walled and double-walled boxes. Double-walled boxes are suitable for valuable, heavy goods. Where the product is light and not fragile, a single-walled box may suffice.
