Use this list of questions as a starting point, if you have any questions contact our sales department at 401-245-5900 and ask for Julie or Leila.
1. What size box do you need? (length x width x depth)
*Measuring hint: The basic rule of box dimensions are as follows: place the product on the table sitting the way it will be placed in the box. The length is left to right, the width is front to back, the depth is from the table top to the ceiling, and the lid height is how far down the lid will cover the base.
2. What are the dimensions of the product? A sample of the product will ensure proper fit.
3. When measuring an existing box keep in mind that all measurements are based on the inside dimensions, from score line to score line. Base measurements control the dimensions of the box, (be sure to include the depth of the lid).
4. What style are you looking for? (Box Construction)
5. Are you looking for a specific color or material for the inside and outside of the box?
6. Will there be any decoration? (We can foil stamp, emboss, deboss, etc.)
7. Are the wraps going to be printed? (Process Flow Chart)

Taylor box manufactures rigid paper boxes using a variety of chipboards and paper wrap materials, as well as clear PVC boxes. The basic components of a rigid box consist of paperboard, paper, and glue. The choice of board determines the strength and rigidity and is determined by the intended use and desired appearance. We offer board in a natural chipboard color, black, and white, the weight of the board varies depending on the contents of the box and typically ranges between .040 point and .060 point.

Everything that Taylor Box produces is custom and sizes can range from as small as 1-11/16" x 13/16" x 5/16" to as large as 24" x 16-1/2" x 5" for rigid boxes. Clear PVC boxes can range in size from 3" x 1-1/4" x 1/2" to roughly 16" x 14" x 2-3/4".
