When hobby shops order bulk quantities of comic boxes, trading card boxes and record boxes from BCW Supplies, we strap the boxes into bundles so we can efficiently ship them. In the past, this process involved strapping the bundles with a plastic band. As the band had to be tightly wrapped around the bundle, and the band was only 3/8 of an inch wide, the band could dig into the boxes on the top and bottom of the bundle. The boxes on the outside of the bundles would be slightly damaged in this old process – not enough to make the boxes unusable, but they were no longer in pristine condition.

While this is industry-standard method for shipping bundles of cardboard, this process was not acceptable to BCW Supplies or our valued customers. To remedy the problem, we searched the manufacturing marketplace to find a new system to bundle cardboard boxes. Our solution is a new stretch film bander. This bander wraps bundles of boxes with a plastic film similar to the plastic wrap you may use in your kitchen to store leftover food. As this wrap is flexible and wider than the previously used plastic band, the wrap does not harm the cardboard on the outside of the bundles.

As soon as possible, all BCW cardboard boxes that are bundled will be wrapped with the new plastic film.
