    Anyone have a source/recommendation for printing on Cardboard shipping boxes? We are currently just stamping our logos on them with a large 10"x4" rubber stamp. We have multiple sizes, but the 2 most common would be 30"x4x4" and 24"x4x4. Would be ordering a couple thousand at a time.

    This would be a simple screenprint process.
    NazDar 9700 would work great. We've done it often

    Cardboard box HPFB500

    Im trying to figure out the output/capacity for short-run cardboard box packaging using the HP FB500 Scitex Printer,
    is it viable for entry-level packaging (cardboard carton box) prints ?

    The problem with running boxes on the Scitex is that they are usually not flat enough to go through without getting some headstrikes, even getting knocked askew. We've done a few smallish runs and you have to pretty much babysit the machine while it is printing. It's not cost effective.

    Printing on (Corrugated) Cardboard box material

    We have a FB500 in studio and run 2-sided boxes nested on 60”x120” corrugated cardboard. Media setup is done with the warped media setting, I lost about 24” of printing material when all is said and done. I haven’t had a problem with head clearance (striking the media) on either side of the prints. I usually have the head height set around .085”-.095”. Indoor/Indoor+ works well for me as far as the print mode. Our MultiCam takes over after that, contour cutting each box and creasing the folds. Other than the wasted material, two strips of 60”x12” cardboard from each end of the sheet, everything production-wise runs smoothly.

    Where do you buy your cardboard? We are looking at doing some a large run of cardboard but our substrate vendors don't offer cardboard. We are getting some from ULine but it is only white on one side and it is always very warped.

    Thanks
