Need to pack and send holiday gifts? Look for higher box prices.


The packing and shipping industry is set to see a price increase for  box prices right before Christmas.

While box prices have not gone up in about three years, there is an increase this year. The overall December price increase is between 6%-10%.

This includes  Kraft paper, corrugated boxes, corrugated roll and  flat sheets of cardboard.  So, if you need boxes for mailing holiday gifts, ordering before December 15 is your best bet to save on box prices.
