Its, true…you learn something new every day.
And recently, I learned what a carton mark is.
I’ve been through a couple of orders already with my supplier and I like to think that I’m pretty on top of the questions that they will ask me.
So when I got an email asking what I wanted for my carton mark, I was confused, I’d never been asked that before.
What is a Carton Mark?
After some research, I learned that while pretty simple, a carton mark is actually really important.
It is the information that goes on the outside of all your boxes and tells people what is inside the box.
A carton mark should have these things, at minimum:
- Your shipping label (including a receiving and return address)
- Country of Origin
- Contents of the Carton*
- Numbered Box + Boxes in shipment (Example: 1 of 3)
- Weight + Measurements (metric)
- Written in English
*If your contents are high value, you may not want to advertise what is inside in case unsavory characters come across your goods.
