When you are considering a purchase in custom packages but not sure which one to use, custom printed boxes or tape, if you are looking at cost alone, custom tape is more economical and offers all of the benefits mentioned above. Boxes will be bulky and take up a lot of space in inventory. In addition, someone within your company would have to keep checking to see whether or not there are enough boxes in each size and that can take some time depending on how organized your inventory is. As for tape, it only comes in rolls and a standard size depending on your organization’s needs.
An important thing to think about is if you tend to under stuff or overstuff your boxes. The only time you would need different size tapes for these two situations. When overstuffing, it is important to use a wider tape such as 3 inches. This will stick better in transit and will not allow the tape to slowly unbind due to pressure. The best solution for under stuffing is to use a box that is a more appropriate size.
