F.A.Q.

Payment and Delivery

Our terms are cash, company cheque or credit card for the first order. Credit arrangements can be made for subsequent orders.

Delivery is free for commercial orders of $300 or more within the greater Toronto area bordered by Ajax to the east, Markham to the north and Burlington to the west. We do not deliver beyond these boundaries but of course orders can be picked up from our warehouse.

Samples and Photos

We can email photos of boxes showing printing and other markings. Actual samples are also available.

Box strengths and measurement

Although the rating shown on the "class stamp" of most corrugated boxes these days will be ECT (which stands for edge crush test) the former pounds per square inch test is sometimes referred to. Following is a chart which shows corrugated box strengths in both ratings.
