Cert Stamp Usage

Aaron asks:

Out of curiosity, does it say anywhere that box stamps have to be round (our most common certs we use)? I was looking at maybe a redesign of our certs just to set us apart from other companies.

Well, maybe going to red or blue in an election years may not be a good option.

But seriously, one is not required to even place a BMC stamp on a corrugated box. If your customer is shipping by common carrier or rail, the stamp is there in the case of damage claims. Heard about any of those making the news lately? Some companies use the square stamp, but that has no legal legs in damage disputes. UPS has their own set of packaging guidelines. See the next issue of July/August BoxScore to learn more!
