If your product is to be placed on the shelf, it has to have a "sell yourself" look. By displaying boxes you can advertise your product or service. Colourful packaging is one of the most effective ways to be noticed by the customers.
The strength and durability of corrugated boxes lie on the fact that they are manufactured in a way as to ensure that there are three layers in the material with enclosed rows of air.
