If you are looking for something a little different, a unique size or printed packaging, we can produce a custom solution for you.
Postal boxes are the new norm for e-Commerce packaging. With their hinged lid and tuck in closure, they are quick to make up and offer a greater presentation of your products when compared to a single or double wall shipping box.

Postal boxes are the new norm when it comes to e-Commerce packaging. Because postal boxes are die-cut, they offer some key additional features compared to your standard single wall box, such as a hinged lid and tuck in closure. Postal boxes can also be printed both inside and out, perfect for reinforcing brand identity and leaving an impression. Combining all these additional features becomes any marketing departments dream, allowing for the creation of a more exciting unboxing experience!
Additional Features: Die cut boxes are a great solution for more complex packaging solutions or to create boxes with additional features.
This range of hinged lid boxes is a standard 0427 FEFCO style. We love the way the hinged lid opens to reveal the products inside, making for a pleasant, hassle-free unboxing experience.
These postal boxes for mailing have front and side flaps that tuck snugly into the box to close it you don't need the usual masses of tape to seal it closed, but many customers opt for a custom printed sticker or tamper-proof sticker for that little added security.
Creating a die-cut box from scratch usually requires an initial investment cost for the die-cutting tool, however, if you select a die-cut brown postal box from our extensive range of sizes, you won't have these setup costs, because we have invested for you.
Our standard postal box range has 9 sizes and we offer them all in White or Kraft. All die-cut boxes come flat on a pallet to save on storage space. They are very quick to make up, with two very simple locking tabs on each side and the hinged lid and fold in flaps for closure.
Many e-Commerce boxes like our single wall or double wall cardboard shipping boxes are categorised by Royal Mail as small or medium parcels, which is great for keeping your shipping costs to a minimum, however, 0427 postal boxes can be custom made to even shallower depths, such as a maximum external depth of 25mm, which is categorised as the maximum size to be classed as a large letter by Royal Mail. This makes this style of postal box attractive to many e-Commerce sectors.
When it comes to sending your goods by courier, the parcel size and measurements are equally important to keep shipping costs to a minimum, which is why we always display the external box sizes alongside the internal dimensions. This will help you best determine the shipping costs for your selected packaging.
Top tip: Whilst letterbox size packaging sizes do vary, the standard UK letterbox will fit a package with the maximum external dimensions of 254mm long and 38mm high.
Standard 0427 brown postal boxes like these are very easy to customise. For low quantities, you might want to consider a printed label or sticker to promote your brand and make your boxes tamper-evident. For quantities of 500 and over, you can get your postal boxes custom printed. Just get in touch with the Packaging Supplies team for an instant quotation.

We can offer all types of support from 30-day accounts to stock and call off for bespoke and printed boxes, all delivered on a next day basis.
Here at Packaging Supplies, we are big believers in the circular economy. Paper packaging is the closest packaging material to hitting this goal, with an impressive 85.5% recycling rate in the EU. This is the reason that we have changed our product offering to be completely plastic-free and focus our attention on paper products which can be 100% recycled.
All of the Packaging Supplies boxes - including our hinged lid postal boxes - are made from recycled material. Our paper packaging products are made up of 80% recycled paper and 20% wood from sustainable forest, however, we can also provide cardboard boxes from 100% recycled content. Packaging Supplies are committed to environmental legislation.

We love the boxes we have had made through Packaging Supplies – they are great quality and value, no-one else came close when we were doing our supplier research. There was a seemingly unnecessary delay when it came to receive the artwork through but everything else was fast and the service was great. We’ll definitely be using this company again!
Excellent experience with Packaging Supplies. We have enjoyed quick communication with Lisa, who has been very helpful, and the packaging we ordered has turned out superbly.

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
