How to cut down a box

Save money on shipping by cutting your boxes down to size.

Step 1: Determine the hieght of the item going into the box

Step 2: Draw a line across that box at that hieght all around

Step 3: Cut the corners from the top to the line that you drew

Step 4: Using your cutting knife, lightly score the outside layer of the cardboard

Step 5: Fold the box at the score.  Depending on the length of the scored piece you might need to trim it off so its not larger than the box.   The video link in addtional information below is well done and exemplifies the technique quite well.

Good Shipping!
