After experimenting for years with different sizes and forms we decided to go for custom made boxes some time ago. Now we only use one size for all items - which is cheaper than having three or four different sizes since we get a larger discount if we order a large amount of only one box. One time costs for the cutting die were about 400 EUR. Our boxes also have adhesive strips - so we do not need additional tape or straps to close the boxes. Saves money and prevents "tape arms". After working with those heavy tape dispensers for a few hours my employees always used to complain.
