Packaging Pranks for April Fools’ Day

April 01, 2014


It’s the most wonderful time of the year for packaging people like all of us here at Ernest Packaging Solutions … April Fools’ Day! Why does this holiday, which dates back hundreds of years, matter so much to us? Because corrugated, tape, packing peanuts, bubble wrap and all sorts of products we use to engineer custom solutions play a vital role in April Fools’ Day pranks.

Want to see some of our favorites, from the funny to the just plain confusing? Check out below:

In this classic gag, an unsuspecting coworker returns to find his entire office has been replaced by corrugated copies. Now we’re no experts – wait, yes we are – but it seems like to really pull this prank off, you need to know how to make corrugated bend to your will. Just like when we made a corrugated snowboard.
