- Make sure the contents of the box aren’t too heavy — First things first, if the contents inside the package are heavier than what the box can support, it won’t matter how much tape you reinforce the seams with; the package will bust open at some point. So, make sure you’re not overloading the box
- Use the right tape — Tape your box shut along the seams using 2-inch wide tape. Make sure it’s packaging tape that you’re using. Don’t use scotch tape, masking tape, or any other type of tape. And don’t use string or twine.
