History of Cardboard Boxes: When Were Cardboard Boxes Invented?

We take them for granted, but shipping operations would not be the same without the

invention of cardboard boxes - how long do you think they have they been around?

When Was the Cardboard Box Invented?
The cardboard Gift Box was

invented all the way back in 1817 in England. The box was simple paperboard and was not

corrugated, but it was a box (Kellogg Cereals helped popularize this box in the mid-


There have been many incarnations of the cardboard box along the way though, which

we will highlight next in the evolution of the cardboard box section.

How Has the Cardboard Box Evolved?

Corrugated paper was patented in 1856, but used as a liner in hats for the beginning

of its existence.

It was not until 1871 that the corrugated cardboard

Cosmetic Box came into existence

as a means of shipping and handling materials. It only took three years for the first

machine to produce large quantities of corrugated board to come into being, creating the

corrugated cardboard box we all know and love today. 1890 brought about another huge

innovation in cardboard boxes, as pre-cut single pieces of board that could be folded

into boxes were invented. By 1895, corrugated cardboard boxes jumped shores and began

being produced in America for the first time.

What Came Before the Cardboard Box?
Wooden crates were the predominant means for moving materials prior to the invention

of the Round Gift Box. Those

wooden crates were (and still are) pretty expensive and hard to replicate on a grand

scale though.

How Are Cardboard Boxes Made?
We could explain how cardboard Lip Balm Tube Boxes are made, but would not you rather watch them get made?

The Science Channel is here to help us all with their fantastic “How It’s Made”

series. Watch their video above to learn about how cardboard boxes are made!

Why Do We Need Cardboard Boxes?
Cardboard Corrugated Boxes

remain one of the simplest ways to move things from one place to another.

Whether it is a case of juice boxes or you are moving from one house to another,

cardboard boxes help collect numerous amounts of things into one confined space for easy


Paper Bags have been part of

trade and commerce for more than centuries. Traditionally cloth and jute bags were used

to pack goods in larger quantities during its transfer from manufacturer or farms to

retailers and shopkeepers then used the paper bags to distribute smaller quantity goods

to end customers. In fact, paper bags are still used by small food retailers like –

sweetshop owners, street food vendors, bakers and by small vegetable sellers.

On the other hand, a paper bag’s structural firmness and surface feature made it

ideal to print high-quality images, logo, designs better as compared to a plastic bag,

and that made paper bags a hit for fashion, luxury and premium gift packaging industry.

With the right apps, a smartphone can do almost anything, but it is also useful to

occasionally ditch your phone in favor of a trusty


Switching from relying on your phone in every aspect of your life to using a

physical notebook can be beneficial for more than just your handwriting. You can not

check social networks on your notebook, for one. Committing to using a notebook for

certain aspects of your life—say, your to-do list—can help wean you from your

smartphone addiction. Overusing your phone can lead to sleep issues, anxiety, decreased

productivity, and other issues, and experts recommend putting away your phone

periodically during the day to break the cycle of checking and rechecking your

notifications every few minutes.

Benefits of Using Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes are cost-effective

and easy to use. Their design makes them great for highlighting important information as

it contrasts against standard documents and books.

A study conducted by Randy Garner at Sam Houston State University which was noted in

the Harvard Business Review found that sticky notes were a persuasive instrument in

getting people to comply with a request. This was owed to the fact that adding a sticky

note with a handwritten message on a file added a personal touch which people responded

well to.

That e-books have surged in popularity in recent years is not news, but where they

are headed – and what effect this will ultimately have on the printed word – is

unknown. Are printed Books destined to

eventually join the ranks of clay tablets, scrolls and typewritten pages, to be

displayed in collectors’ glass cases with other curious items of the distant past?

And if all of this is so, should we be concerned?

Answers to these questions do not come easily, thanks to the variability in both e-

reading trends and in research findings on the effects (or lack thereof) that digital

reading has on us. What we do know, according to a survey conducted last year by Pew

Research, is that half of American adults now own a tablet or e-reader, and that three

in 10 read an e-book in 2013. Although printed books remain the most popular means of

reading, over the past decade e-books have made a valiant effort at catching up.
