With your business needs in mind, we can even impart more safety by adding thicker flutes or using double wall corrugated soap boxes.
Are you ready to give your customers that ‘premium’ feel? The rigid material is not only strong but can also impart that elegant and stylish look that customers crave. The minimum thickness of the rigid material is 32pt. This kind of material is used when you want to create gift soap boxes or if you’re planning for international deliveries of your soaps.
