Corrugated Envelopes

Lil Packaging's corrugated envelopes offer a perfect blend of rigidity, strength, and durability, making them ideal for shipping items in e-commerce. Over the decades, we've refined our approach, incorporating innovative features to ensure our corrugated envelopes are among the best in the industry. We select high-quality cardboard that balances shipping weight with structural strength, helping you save on postal costs without compromising on rigidity.

Our corrugated envelopes are designed with ecological sustainability in mind, constructed from FSC® certified environmentally friendly materials. Their unique 'contoured' glue seams maintain envelope shape while providing strength, ensuring that these rigid envelopes fit perfectly in a variety of shipping contexts.

Pre-folded flaps make closing our corrugated envelopes a breeze, and 'ghost creases' add flexibility to accommodate larger contents without causing damage. This makes inserting items like books and DVDs into our durable envelopes much easier.

To speed up fulfillment, a crucial aspect of e-commerce, we've added overhangs to our white release paper, allowing for quick and easy detachment. This feature helps your team package products faster, enabling quicker delivery to your customers. Our unique hot melt glue process ensures envelopes stay securely sealed until they reach their destination.
