Tips to Help You Choose the Right Packaging Size

Whether you’re shipping one package a day or hundreds, finding the right fit for your packaging can reduce costs and offer more protection for your products. Companies ― maybe even your own ― often use boxes that aren’t the right fit for the items being shipped. And to keep the item in place, they use a whole lot of paper or other material to fill in the extra space. While this may be necessary to protect fragile items, nonessential additional packaging can cost you big.

Here are some tips booksellers can use to optimize their packaging.
