How to Measure a Box

Seems simple enough, but when it comes down to asking for a quote, it can be a little tricky. Which way is length or height? Depth or width? See how it becomes slightly uncertain? Let's set a VisiPak standard so everyone is on the same page when it comes to requesting a quote.

Three Measurements to Consider:

  • Depth = a front to back measurement
  • Width = a left to right measurement
  • Length = a top to bottom measurement

Clear Box Tolerances
Dimensions cannot be produced in increments smaller than 1/32”.
Tolerances on all dimensions are +/- .020”.
When providing dimensions, please specify inside or outside measurements so the wall thickness can be properly calculated.

Note: All dimensions are in inches and should be used for relative comparison. Please contact VisiPak for actual specifications and tolerances before applying to an engineered print.
