Need Unique Boxes?

We’re more than just a regular box company.

Corrugated cardboard is a great material to consider for your boxing needs because it is both lightweight and durable. Rather than settling for just a regular box though, think about what would suit your product best.

Custom Shape & Size

Whether it’s food or industrial lighting fixtures, when deciding what corrugated cardboard box you will go with for your business, it’s worth considering its shape and size. Most box manufacturing companies in the Vancouver Area will only offer a standard set of shapes and sizes; however, Racer Boxes is a local Vancouver box manufacturing company that will cater to your individual business needs by offering custom box shapes, sizes, designs, and other custom services.

Custom Printing

Racer Boxes also offers custom box printing services to go with your unique box shape and size. We’re able to print packaging, labeling, branding, displays, gift boxes, and more.

Re-using Cardboard Boxes

Pros & Cons Of  Corrugated Cardboard Boxes for Packing & Moving

Corrugated cardboard boxes have become the popular choice when it comes to packing and storing goods. There are many benefits of using corrugated cardboard boxes; below is a comprehensive list of why choosing a corrugated cardboard box over another style of box is the best choice for moving or shipping.

Benefits Of Corrugated Cardboard Boxes

  • Light: Cardboard corrugated boxes are light weight, therefore more convenient for handling
  • Affordable: They are also relatively inexpensive compared to other box alternatives due to the raw materials used to make the product
  • Box Printing: For companies looking to increase their marketing, they are great for the ease of printing directly onto the box during production.
  • Labeling: Cardboard corrugated boxes are also easy to write on after production
  • Customizable: Cardboard corrugated boxes are available in custom shapes, sizes, designs and can even be dyed to colour, meeting the demands of the particular need
  • When done, cardboard corrugated boxes can be recycled completely making them an eco-friendly product choice

Of course, there are a few drawbacks to consider, as well.

Drawbacks Of Corrugated Cardboard Boxes

  • They are not as durable as boxes made from materials such as plastic or wood. Especially for heavy items or for use under extreme pressure, cardboard corrugated boxes may not be the ideal choice to withstand the pressure
  • They are generally used for shorter-term purpose, as such they are not ideally a long-term investment that can be used over and over again

Vancouver Wholesale Box Deliveries | Canada

Save Storage Space: Boxes Delivered Weekly

Some food distributors and manufacturers can save valuable warehouse space and reduce fixed overhead expenses by converting from buying boxes in bulk to weekly box deliveries, as our recent case study demonstrates.

Buying Bulk vs Prearranged Weekly Deliveries

This study comes from the help of one of Racer Boxes customers who recently switched to using our weekly box delivery service in order to cut costs and save on space.

The findings show that while buying boxes in bulk provides a bulk discount to the initial price, the increased cost of storing bulk orders of boxes can in some cases outweigh the savings. In this case study, the manufacturer’s dedicated inventory space for boxes added up to a monthly loss of $1,120 so at the end of the month he was coming out at a loss.

Weekly deliveries of his boxes were effectively a bigger discount than buying bulk box orders.

Contact Racer Boxes in Vancouver Canada

See if receiving weekly deliveries works for you, contact Racer Boxes – a Vancouver Boxes and Packaging Manufacturer at (604) 270 – 8205. Through a reduction in box inventory, you may even be able to convert your inventory square footage into revenue generating space.

Saving on Wholesale Boxes: China vs Vancouver Canada

We recently wrote a case study featuring Munching and Crunching, a seafood distributor in Vancouver Canada. In this case, their seafood products were packed and shipped in corrugated cardboard boxes made by a local box manufacturer. In an effort to lower the cost of their wholesale box orders, they decided to try out a chinese box manufacturer. But did they end up saving money and was there a better option?

Importing Boxes: Risk vs BenefitsPacking Cartons Vancouver BC Canada

In this case, the Chinese box manufacturer required 30% in advance before they would build their boxes and then full payment before shipment of the completed boxes. After shipping, the total savings worked out to a little under 2% on their seafood packing boxes expenses.

Expensive Lesson

The trouble for Munching and Crunching turned out two fold: (1) the logo was incorrectly printed: it read “Punching and Crunching.” And (2), the quality of the boxes was inferior: as soon as their stackable boxes were stacked 4 high, the bottom boxes would crumple and become unusable.

Better Way to Save on Vancouver Wholesale Boxes

In the end, Munching and Crunching discovered Racer Boxes — a local Vancouver Boxes and Packaging Manufacturer — and successfully reduced their costs without skimping on the box manufacturing and printing standards. Racer Boxes even created a print plate that can be repeatedly used on their future box orders.

Humanitarian Aid with Corrugated Boxes?

Earlier this month, we published an article on how our corrugated boxes were made in Vancouver, B.C. (see: Corrugated Boxes: Local, Sustainable Vancouver Box Manufacturer”). Corrugated cardboard is the most common type of cardboard and it is known for its light-weight but extreme durability in stiffness and in strength. It is made up from three layers, including a wavy middle layer created during the manufacturing process. As such, corrugated cardboard is a material not only excellent for packing boxes or stacking boxes, but it is also ideal for insulation and even shelter.

 Cardboard Insulation & Shelter

Japanese architect Shigeru Ban is known for literally thinking outside the box. He is most famous for his innovative work with paper to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims. His favourite material is in fact the recycled corrugated box, which he has used to build houses and churches, among various other projects around the world.

Shigeru Ban’s modern design as applied to humanitarian projects has inspired many to think about cardboard boxes in more than just one way. They have certainly provided as shelter for individuals in one way or another. In other instances, other creative individuals have repurposed the incredible material for ecological projects, like building a cardboard bicycle. The possibilities are endless; what else can you think about doing with a cardboard box?

How to Organize with Corrugated Cardboard

It’s easy to accumulate stuff. What’s worse is that when you actually need that stuff, it’s nowhere to be found. It’s time to get organized.

Tones of home renovation shows and do-it-yourself blogs will teach you how to be creative. They will also teach you how to spend lots of money on what’s essentially more stuff. Although massive home renovation and DIY projects can offer more options to show off your inner designer, sometimes less is more. Not to mention, we all tend to get sidetracked if it’ll take more than a few hours. When it comes to saving money and time, all you really need for simple organization of your space is a couple dozen cardboard boxes.

Standard Folding BoxesStock Boxes standard folding boxes

Our standard folding boxes are great for storing out-of-season clothing to hide away in the cross-space. They are also great for keeping winter blankets and Christmas decorations out of sight in the summer. Our cardboard boxes are also great for day-to-day storage: Keep sports equipment or your party hosting extras out of the way.

 Cardboard Boxes Made-in-Vancouver

When all is said and done, your now organized stuff in boxes is ready to go, anywhere! Our made-in-Vancouver cardboard boxes are all built durable to last as a reliable packing box for any move. Should you one-day need to pick up and move in a hurry, consider yourself already packed.

Racer Boxes: Your Local & Sustainable Vancouver Box Manufacturer

No matter where you go – to work, to the grocery store, or shopping at your favourite retail store – there are bound to be boxes in sight. Like we can’t escape them, boxes are part of our everyday life because they simply make life easier.  But ever wonder where they come from?

Racer Boxes is a Vancouver box manufacturer here in Canada. From our standard cardboard boxes to custom boxes in Vancouver, this means that we use only locally sourced material from our Canadian forests and work only with local manufacturers here in Canada.

The most common type of cardboard box is the corrugated box. This type of cardboard is stiff, strong, and light-weight and is made up from two layers of brown kraft paper. For customized orders we do 3 layers of kraft paper. Corrugated boxes were first developed in 1884 to resist tearing, splitting, and bursting. The term corrugate comes from the converting process of which wood pulp is corrugated and made into paper. The wood pulp is rolled over to create the famous corrugated waves, and then the paper is cut to size and glued together to form its final shape.

Why we are so proud to manufacture our boxes at home in Canada is because Canada actually leads the world in the adoption of sustainable forest management. The average percentage of our corrugated boxes in Vancouver are made from only just over 10% freshly-cut tree; the remainder is from recycled paper and board or woodchips, shavings, and sawdust left over from other operations. Not to mention, this 10% is less than only 0.5% of Canada’s extensive forestlands. Much more of our forests are burned in forest fires or killed by insects and beetles. Canada has also implemented strict measures for forest regeneration including tree planting and seeding initiatives, which make up for the trees that were cut down for any of our Vancouver box manufacturing purposes.

So join us! In our support for local and sustainable Vancouver box manufacturing practices, for any of your boxing needs.
