    Don't you think that it is about time somebody manufactures a nice sturdy box for copy paper. While they are doing that get rid of the two straps that never make it to the final destination. Tape the damn box closed.

    Or go to OfficeMax or Staples or something like that.

    Yonko, the problem is that these boxes, just like the TV(LED/LCD) boxes were never designed to be shipped individually
    they were designed to be palletized and then put on a store shelf, not designed to go SOLO through the UPS/FedEx systems.

    I feel ya there. Sometimes I wish they would just ship the tree, it would take up more room in the truck. I always ask the customer"where did you dig the hole ?" Some get it and some don't . The ones that don't, get the patented answer " for this tree I have on my shoulder".

    Those straps really come in handy when lifting those boxes. Please don't get rid of them.

    I agree. Keep the straps. As far as I am concerned, straps are handles.

    Occasionally you will get a shipper that tapes the straps down. I hate that.

    Before UPS I worked in the printing industry. I used to grab 2 and sometimes 3 of those boxes together when we got deliveries. Now I can hardly pick up one.

    I always found it easier carrying two( if by the straps ) for balance. We're the hell does the 3rd one go ?

    ​I find that the pain subsides quicker if you go up in ounces, say 24 oz cans. Just me maybe.

    Costco paper boxes falls apart. Along with those HP toner return boxes, sometimes those toner cartridges spill residual powder all over the place.
