Shipping Cartons - Signet

Supplier: Signet

Signet's shipping cartons are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes including archival grade, adjustable and custom-made types. We strive to provide total packaging solutions for any need.


However if you do your research, you’ll soon find that there is a shape to suit or fit just about any  requirement. This includes cartons for long, awkward, cubic or round items, even cartons that you can adjust yourself. To save you a bit of time though, we have compiled a list of the different types of shipping cartons available:

  • Adjustable cartons:

o  As you can tell by the name, these cartons can be adjusted to your required height. This is through score lines every 50mm on the carton starting from halfway up the carton

  • Archive Boxes:

o These are heavy duty cartons specially designed to hold foolscap manila folders or up to 3 lever arch files or 6 ring binders. They have superior stacking strength as they can be stacked up to 6 boxes high

  • Flat cartons:

o  This shape is ideal for narrow or slim products (e.g. albums, books, diaries, documents, plates etc.)

  • Heavy Duty cartons:

o  These cartons are made with a double wall cardboard, meaning they can hold up to twice the weight of normal cartons

  • Long cartons:

o  These cartons have a large opening along one of the lengths for easy inserting and removing of items. This style is suitable for long or awkward-shaped products

  • Mailing Boxes: 

o  Small post-sized boxes in standard mailing sizes. These boxes don’t need staples or tape; just fold into shape and send

  • Neat-Fit cartons:

o  Smaller cartons can be secured together in a “neat-fit” carton (i.e. 2x size "A" fit into carton "B", or 2x size "B" fit into size "C")

  • Pallet Fitting cartons:

o  All sizes of pallet cartons fit neatly together onto a standard pallet (note: it needs to be the 1 size used together)

  • Printer cartons:

o  These cartons are ideal for A4 sized paper, making them ideal for printers to store & send goods. As they are only intended for documents they have a maximum weight of 6kg

  • Removalist cartons:

o  Another namesake carton; this style is versatile, strong and durable making them ideal for moving

  • Square cartons:

o  These cartons are ideal for shipping round, cubic or odd-shaped items

  • Tall cartons:

o  An alternative to postal tubes, these cartons are great for long shaped products (such as paper rolls, posters etc.)

  • White shipping cartons:

o  White cartons are made the same as standard shipping cartons, but have a white exterior for a more stylish appearance.

  • Wraparound Mailer cartons: These are ideal for wrapping around frames, books and other flat items as the cardboard flaps wrap around the product and seal with the heavy duty self adhesive strip.
