At Bolt Boxes, we understand that industry terminology encompasses many types of shipping boxes, and it can be challenging to tell the differences between types! That’s why, in this article, we’re going to let you in on some industry jargon around custom RSC boxes.
What are RSC corrugated boxes? What makes RSC style boxes different from other shipping packages — and why would you choose them over another? We’ll answer these questions and more to help you determine if an RSC carton will properly satisfy your packaging needs.
What Are Custom RSC Boxes?
A custom RSC box, or a regular slotted container, refers to the standard style of box construction in the packaging industry. The four flaps of an RSC style box all fold over one another, meet in the middle and are usually taped or stapled shut.
If your product requires additional protection where it meets the bottom of the box or on top, corrugated pads may be placed between the inside flaps of an RSC style box.
RSC Carton Specifications
When you need precise specifications for your RSC box, Bolt Boxes has got you covered. We can custom manufacture a wide range of lengths, widths and depths to ensure our RSC corrugated boxes work for your products.
Simply enter the box dimensions you need, along with the quantity, material and whether or not you need printing, and we’ll create a structural prototype and provide images of printed boxes we’ve produced in the past. If you grant us your approval, all that’s left for us to do is schedule the job, manufacture and ship.
All flaps on an RSC corrugated box have the same length, and the two outer flaps, or lengthwise flaps, equate to one-half of the carton’s width. This way, the two outer flaps can meet at the center of the box when folded.
Why Choose RSC Style Boxes?
Custom RSC boxes are the package of choice for a variety of applications. Why? The RSC style box is versatile, durable and produces very little manufacturing waste. These custom packages are a popular choice for heavier products and offer additional support. RSC style custom boxes lend the most economical structure for shipping products of various weights and sizes as they use less material than other types of boxes.
In general, if you’re searching for the most efficient corrugated packaging option on the market — especially if you need a bulk order completed — the RSC style box is the way to go. RSC corrugated boxes are easy to manufacture and assemble and can be built into just about any size box you need.
