Without exception, the size of a corrugated cardboard box is always expressed by three dimensions: Length, then Width, then Depth. (L x W x D) (Most of the time Length is the longest dimension or side of the box) These measurements refer to the inside dimensions of an assembled box, to assure the exact fit for your product.
At the same time, when palletized boxes are organized for shipping, the outside dimension of the box is taken into consideration. Both stock boxes and custom size boxes can be sourced easily and conveniently. If we don’t have the exact size corrugated “stock box” in our inventory go to the “corrugated boxes custom size” link on the home page and input the dimensions of the box you are looking for.
Custom corrugated boxes for shipping are subject to a variance of 1/16″ to 1/8″ when produced on certain corrugated converting machines. Generally this applies for small order runs in quantities of 1,000 or less.

RSC Box blank shows parameters and measurements.
Custom box designs and die cuts, scores and slotting measurements are determined by following the diagram of an RSC box drawing. The “score to score” to your left is the width of the box, the “score to score” to your right is the height of the box. The length of the box is figured by measuring one of the large panels from left to right or vice versa.
