The DSC is made from two scored and slotted trays, a bottom tray and a top tray. The top tray is slightly larger than the bottom tray and serves as a lid. The lid can vary in depth from a few inches to the full depth of the box. This box is shipped flat and is set up usually by stapling or gluing the ends. The extra thickness of the corrugated on the sides and the ends gives it extra stacking strength.
This box is adaptable for many items. Its flat surfaces make it ideal for the packaging of thin flat items such as large paper products. Its extra stacking strength makes it good for the shipment of fragile items such as glassware or delicate dolls. Genetic seed companies find it ideal combined with inner partitioning for holding test seed packets.
