The EazyFind Story
Ever had one of those a-ha moments?
Well I did, and that's when the concept of EazyFind was born.
As I opened my mailbox I remembered the pile of shoes that I saw on my daughter's closet floor two days earlier. I closed the mailbox then opened it again. Since I'm in the box business I stood and stared at the mailbox thinking, can I do this in corrugated? That evening I sketched out my idea for a box that would open like my mailbox. It worked, and I thought "How cool would it be to have a photograph on the front". The material was there so I added a window.
I now had a drop-front opening box, with a place for a photograph of its contents. But I noticed that I could incorporate one more important feature that is lacking in almost all other boxes. If you look at what's available for shoe storage, they all say stackable, but that only means that one box sits on top of another. If your shoe choice is in the middle or on the bottom of the stack you need to move boxes and remove the lid/top to get to them. Interlocking stacking tabs were easy to add to the new design, and because of the drop-front opening, our box would provide easy access without creating clutter or disrupting the column.
Viola! I had designed the perfect answer for shoe lovers, EazyFind. – Bill Goodman
