There is a variable sized "V" series box as well. I know of the V3 and V4.

PM2 - thin, white, flexible plastic 15.5" x 12".

B2A - (JM2) padded manila envelope: 11.5" x 9.5" (10.5"x9" inside)

BA8 - padded manila envelope: 15" x 10.5"

BK1 - 13.25" x 10" x 0.5" , but variable due to wrapping format.

Do you have a box from Amazon that I have not listed here? Send the information to: kevin@incompetech.com.

Note from a contributor: A few days ago, I asked you why there were two numbers on each box. I figured out out. "1AD' is the size of the box. "B25" is the box's part number. The B25 is printed on the box in several places; it is also shown as a Code 128 bar code in several places on the box. (Everything within a Fulfillment Center has a bar code: Associates, product, boxes, shelf locations, etc., etc.) An Amazon Associate can scan the bar code on a box, and their handheld unit will probably show them the location of more boxes in the warehouse. I would also guess the Amazon Purchasing Department uses the box's part number (e.g., B25) to reorder that box.

My friend Pat says I should call this page "Get out much?". But I don't care. I like boxes.
