Custom Printed Boxes

by Donald Prill

In today’s fast moving media oriented market place, getting your product noticed by potential customers has become a battle of unique product packaging, eye popping artwork, applied printing and content.

Creating a custom packaging solution for your product requires you to make choices for the selection of the package materials.

A very popular packaging material most selected today is the corrugated paper products. The reason, this packaging material is a popular solution, simple it satisfies the main requirements for many of today’s packaging requirements.

·        The material is recyclable:

·        It is very cost efficient  

·        Shipping friendly and strong 

·        Design and printing friendly

·        Available

Here are 5 types of custom boxes that are used today for decorative boxes, slip cases, promotional presentation, Literature and CD/DVD packaging.

·        Flexible printing on fluted corrugated provides terrific cost advantages over most other packaging constructions.• Strength • Economy • 80 -100 maximum line screen • Exposed corrugated fluting along edges and minimal screen detail result in a more “industrial” presentation.

·         Literature totes -Ideal to hold literature and booklets. Add file tabs for easy identification and all self contained with easy access like a file drawer concept.

·        Corrugated front lock mailers – Used for self mailing, strong durable but attractive to get customers attention. Includes die cut corrugated inserts to hold your promotion.

·        Corrugated litho you have the advantage of luscious 300 line screen offset printing on a light weight paper stock. The dried press sheet is then adhered onto fluted corrugated. The container takes final form after die cutting and assembly.

•  Benefit from an upscale look at a higher unit cost than fluted   

 Strength/durability

•  Fluted corrugated edge remains visible.
 

Cavity Boxes –Self mailing but Light weight to save in mailing cost. Comes with pockets to hold your literature and a custom fitted cavity opening , or multiple cavities to hold your promo item(s)Flap closures is ideal for easy opening and makes for a nice presentation like a book.

Quality offset printing directly onto cover weight paper stock results in a premium looking package. Added durability can be enhanced through the use of film lamination in place of typical varnish. The complex die cuts are then scored, folded and assembled using glue tabs strategically built into the die design.

Solid fiber board--no unfinished edges • Wide range of paper options available • Geared for quality • Perfect for DVD/CD mailers & folders • Totes & presentation boxes • Folding Carton Containers

Rigid 2 piece boxes –Keepsake, long lasting, the most durable of all boxes. Very high profile. You can add die cut foam inserts to hold your promo item

Hinged lid rigid boxes.- Again the most durable of all boxes (keepsake) with the added feature of a hinged lid. You can add magnet closure, or Velcro closure to seal it shut.

+ 1 extra = Rigid Slip Case boxOpen on 1 end to hold magazines. Also called library cases. Long lasting and great to use as a reference library and to keep materials organized. Also ideal to hold multiple CD and DVD sets.

 Rigid case-made construction produces presentation tools of unsurpassed strength and beauty. Inside, rugged strength is achieved using rigid chip-board construction. Outside, offset printing on text weight paper maximizes graphic possibilities. Choose from many premium options like solid Pantone® colors, foil stamping and embossing or debossing. Decide on a protective resin or film laminate for durability. Your sheet is then carefully wrapped around the heavy-duty inner core. Once its edges are turned and creased, they are sealed into place by an inner liner that fully conceals the core. Fabric and vinyl are also available but are more limited graphically.

• Highest quality • Wrapped edges • Extreme flexibility • Keepsake

• Most rigid product • Higher cost • Ideal for books, book boxes, presentation cases, binder covers and ring binders.

Consider all the features before deciding on which application is right for you.
