Box sizes are measured by using inner dimensions unless otherwise specified. The size of your contents actually determine the inner box dimensions. Domestically (within the United States), those dimensions are listed in the following sequence: Length (L) x Width (W) x Depth (D)*. Internationally, the dimensions are stated as Length (L) x Breadth (B) x Height (H). Dimensions are based on the opening of an assembled box. Looking at the opening, the longer of the two sides is considered the "length." The shorter of the two sides is the "width." The side perpendicular to the length and width is the "depth" of the box.How To Measure Box Looking at the opening of the box, measure the longest or length panel first. Using a tape measure, place it in the bottom of the box approximately one inch from the back wall and measure from left to right. Repeat the process for the shorter width panel. Then, folding a side flap inward until it is perpendicular to its vertical side wall, place the tape measure at the end of the flap and extend it downward until it rests on the inner flap at the bottom of the box (see illustration). This exercise will give you the depth dimension of the box. One-piece, die-cut boxes, such as the "mailer-style" with a tuck-in top, do not have flaps when assembled, but the measuring procedure is basically the same. For the box depth, use the inside back panel as it has a visible score line (crease separating back panel from lid). For the width of a die cut box, measure between the score lines found on the inside of the top or lid. And, of course, for the length of the box, place your measuring rule on the bottom of the box approximately one-inch from the back panel. Measure from left to righFlutes Corrugating is defined as the imparting of wave-like shape to a paper. Kraft paper or fluting media paper is passed through heated corrugated rolls obtain continuous rolling, wave-like shape. These are called flutes. Observed vertically, they form a row of columns - a basic structural form capable of supporting great weight. Viewed horizontally, flutes are arches- another basic structural form capable of providing cushioning properties. The combination of columns and arches pro –duce a material far stronger then the paper from which it is converted.
