We have padded envelopes for single book / dvd type purchases and then we have a number of other boxes for multiple purchases / toys and other products.
Care to share what are the common sizes? Looks like Amazon has a pretty standard set of boxes they deliver the products in.
Couple of our sizes:
12 x 12 x 6
12 x 12 x 12
14 x 14 x 18
14 x 6 x 6
16 x 12 x 10
24 x 24 x 18
Most of our orders are 2 - 7 pieces of somewhat random size and shaped items. We found it was considerable cheaper to use peanuts, paper or air pouches to fill the empty space vs more box sizes. We now by the boxes by the pallet per size and have a smaller storage area.
And it seems that cardboard is a competite business, and it really paid to shop around a little.
One of the outcomes of this is I ended up with a new size box (16x6x4) which is now my most popular to use. This replaced an 18x6x6 box. Some of my other standards are 10x8x6, 12x12x6, 18x14x4, and 20x6x6.
