Brown postal boxes are the modern standard for eCommerce packaging, offering numerous advantages over plastic-based packaging.
With their die-cut design, these postal boxes feature a hinged lid and tuck-in closure for added convenience. Plus, they can be custom printed both inside and out to reinforce your brand’s identity and create a lasting impression on your customers. These features make brown or white postal boxes a blank canvas for marketing departments that allow you to create a distinct design and a memorable unboxing experience, or simply a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for your brand.
Why Choose Our (140x100x55mm) Brown Postal Boxes
Our brown postal boxes for the perfect “all-rounder” packaging solution. They’re eco-friendly, cost-effective, easy to assemble and help simplify the packaging and shipping process.
Brown postal boxes are perfect for mailing products that require protection during the shipping process. Made from high-quality, single-wall corrugated cardboard you can ship anything from apparel to cosmetics in a sustainable style. These corrugated boxes are made from test liner on both the inside and the outside. They’re also made from 100% recycled paper to help you achieve maximum sustainability with your packaging. Our brown packaging boxes are 100% recyclable, home-compostable and biodegradable after use, making it easy for your eco-conscious customers to dispose of responsibly.
Key Features of Our Brown Cardboard Boxes
Postal boxes are compact, durable, and feature a self-locking design for maximum security. We ship them to you flat, and as one piece of cardboard, making storage simple. They’re also quick to assemble in under 20 seconds. Their sustainable credentials mean the humble 0427 postal boxes will appeal to eco-conscious businesses and consumers looking to limit their impact on the environment.
With a fold-down hinged lid and tuck-in flaps, our brown postal boxes eliminate the need for extra packaging tape, making them extra budget-friendly. Creating a die-cut box from scratch usually requires an initial investment cost for the die-cutting tool, however, if you select die-cut postal mailing boxes from our extensive range of sizes, you won’t have these setup costs — we’ve sourced the most popular box sizes for you.
Why Eco-Friendly Brown Postal Boxes Matter
At Packaging Supplies, we are strong advocates of the circular economy, and we believe that paper packaging is a significant step towards achieving this goal. Through well-designed packaging solutions that optimise storage space and reduce transportation costs, we’ve reduced Kraft board weight without compromising strength, thereby reducing packaging waste.

Our 0427 postal boxes are designed to meet the specific needs of eCommerce businesses. On each page, we state which size our postal boxes are categorised in by royal mail, i.e. small or large parcels, for instance. This information is great for keeping your shipping costs to a minimum. On the other hand, our postal boxes can be custom-made with shallower depths, allowing for a maximum external depth of 25mm. This makes them eligible for classification as a large letter (not a parcel!) by Royal Mail, helping you save on overall shipping costs.
When sending goods via a courier, parcel size and measurements play a crucial role in minimising shipping costs. That’s why we always provide both external and internal dimensions of our boxes, helping you accurately determine shipping costs based on your selected packaging.
Bear in mind that while letterbox sizes may vary, the standard UK letterbox can accommodate packages with maximum external dimensions of 254mm length and 38mm height.
