Notes:

  1. Weight is shown when empty and is the minimum for the style of packaging
  2. Protection refers to the overall degree of protection offered, although this may improve with wrapping
  3. Pack shows whether the packaging can be machine assembled, or requires hand packing (slower and more expensive)
  4. Wrap indicates whether the packaging can be cello wrapped or shrink wrapped
  5. Cost is comparative and will depend on the volume of product ordered
  6. Mail refers to whether the packaging can be mailed without further external protection. It will normally need to be cello or shrink wrapped and an address label stuck on. This is still no guarantee that it will arrive intact!
