Vancouver Box Manufacturer Discusses Corrugated Vs. Cardboard

RICHMOND, BC–(Marketwired – March 15, 2018) – Every industry has its own confusing terminology. As Vancouver box manufacturers, the team at Racer Boxes deal with one of the most prevalent — corrugated vs cardboard. In a new blog, they explain the differences between these two very distinct products. For more, go to:

Simply put, a corrugated box has a three-layer substrate — the outside layer, inside layer, and the fluting between. In fact, the name corrugated actually comes from this corrugated medium, which increases the strength and durability of the box as a whole. In other words, corrugated cardboard (or corrugated carton) are the sort of boxes used for moving.

The confusion comes in when people refer to “cardboard boxes” in general. While it’s meant as a shorthand for corrugated cardboard (or carton)-plain cardboard actually refers to a thin paper-board like material, such as a cereal box.

Understanding the difference between corrugated cardboard (or carton) and plain, regular cardboard, is very helpful for clients who have precise needs when it comes to packaging and shipping.

Racer Boxes manufactures a wide range of corrugated cardboard (or carton) boxes. From food boxes to garment boxes, there’s something for every industry and purpose. Moreover, the team at Racer Boxes always goes the extra mile to accommodate clients who need customization and printing.
