What is a Gaylord Box?
Gaylord Container Options and Features
Choose from a variety of print options, finishes, and shapes to create a corrugated box that is uniquely yours. With a range of material thickness options, you can create boxes that are lightweight and durable. Graphic design services are available.
Flexography (also known as flexo) is a printing process that uses flexible relief plates made of rubber or photopolymer to transfer ink onto various substrates, such as corrugated, plastic films, and paper. It is a high-speed, cost-effective printing method that is suitable for printing on rough, porous, and irregular surfaces.
Digital print refers to a printing method that uses digital files such as PDFs, JPEGs, or TIFFs as a source for printing images or text. Digital print technology has revolutionized the printing industry by offering faster turnaround times, lower production costs, and the ability to produce high-quality prints
Lithography is a printing technique that uses a flat printing plate, a special kind of ink, and oil-based or water-based liquids to transfer an image onto a substrate. It produces high-quality, sharp and clear prints that are suitable for printing high-resolution graphics and text.
Strength & Thickness
Single wall corrugated material is the thinnest option, typically ranging from 200 to 500 microns in thickness. This option is suitable for lightweight products and provides a cost-effective solution for boxes.
Double wall corrugated material is thicker than single wall and typically ranges from 600 to 1000 microns in thickness. This option provides additional strength and stability to the box and is suitable for heavier products.
Triple wall corrugated material is the thickest option, typically ranging from 1000 to 1500 microns in thickness. This option provides maximum strength and stability to the box and is suitable for very heavy products.
The most common ECT (Edge Crush Test) rating for custom corrugated boxes is typically between 32 and 44. ECT is a measure of a box’s strength and its ability to resist crushing under pressure, which is an important factor in determining the durability and protection of the packaged product during shipping and handling.
Burst ratings for corrugated boxes range from 200 to 400, with higher numbers indicating greater strength and durability. A burst rating of 200 is suitable for lightweight products, while a burst rating of 400 is recommended for heavier products.
Graphics and print can be used to brand Gaylord boxes with company logos, colors, and messaging, helping to build brand recognition and loyalty.
Graphics can be used to create product labels, indicating product information such as batch numbers, ingredients, and expiry dates.
Graphics and text can be used to display shipping information such as tracking numbers, handling instructions, and destination addresses, making it easy to identify and track shipments.
Graphics and print can be used to display visual instructions, warning signs, or symbols to ensure proper handling and safe use of Gaylord boxes.
Graphics can be used to create custom patterns or designs on Gaylord boxes, making them more visually appealing and differentiated from standard boxes.
Gaylord Box Structural Design
Structural design is a crucial aspect of corrugated boxes, as it affects the stability, strength, and overall appearance of the box. The following are key considerations for structural design in corrugated boxes:
Strength and Durability
A strong and durable corrugated box is vital for protecting products during handling and transportation. This requires careful consideration of factors such as material quality, size, flap and joint design, and the ability to withstand stacking and compression forces.
Size and Shape
The size and shape of a corrugated box are crucial for its strength, durability, and performance. It must be designed to support the product weight, resist compression forces, and allow for easy handling and transportation while ensuring material and production efficiency.
Cushioning and Protection
The cushioning material inside the corrugated box is a critical factor in its structural design as it must absorb shock and prevent product movement during transportation. The type, thickness, and placement of cushioning material are important considerations in ensuring optimal product protection.
Custom corrugated box design should optimize for efficient production, including ease of assembly, minimal waste, and reduced production time. Factors such as the use of efficient production techniques and the design of the flaps and joints can enhance the production efficiency of the design.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor in corrugated box structural design. Eco-friendly materials and designs are considered, with the use of recycled materials, eco-friendly coatings, and efficient production techniques being vital in reducing the environmental impact of the design.
Custom corrugated boxes can be designed with special features, like reinforced walls, multiple access points, interior liners, pallet base, tamper-evident, ventilation, optimal stacking design and other special features.
