September 2006

Great Little Box Company earned 2nd place in the Tappi Corrpak 2006 Corrugated Design competition. The recognized design was the Proheat protective packaging container for Teleflex Canada Limited Partnership. Great Little Box Company was approached by this customer to design packaging for their product that would protect the 50 lb product during international shipping. Through discussions with the client, it became apparent that traditional foam protective packaging was not an option as some countries would not allow foam inserts. Our design team went to work to create a unique and creative way to not only protect the product, but to also to accommodate the smaller version of the Proheat product. The resulting design not only has been extremely successful in protecting the valuable product, but it has also eliminated the need for two different sized boxes therefore reduced the client’s packaging costs considerably.
