What is a Product Box?

The box that houses your actual product can be made in a variety of different formats.

Depending on the value of the merchandise, this can even fall into the category of “Luxury boxes” like 2 piece rigid (set-up) boxes, sleeve boxes, drawer boxes, and a variety of magnetic boxes. But for most mass-market products found in drug stores, department stores, or grocery stores, the product box is just one of a variety of cardboard folding cartons.

What is a folding carton?

Folding cartons are produced by printing directly onto a piece of flat (not corrugated) cardboard. The most standard options are recycled kraft, clay coated (partly recycled) white board, which is usually white or kraft on the flipside, or premium white (SBS) board. There are many style options, the most common of which are:

  • STE (Straight Tuck End) or RTE (Reverse Tuck End): Like a box of playing cards, or perfume, or tea, these boxes ship flat but pop opens and assembles easily. Just close the bottom flap, insert product, and tuck the top to close.
  • Hymes (or “Auto”) bottom with tuck-top: One step up from RTE/STE, the “Hymes” bottom is glued, so that when it pops open, it locks. So, you just fill, and tuck the top to close.
  • BEERS – style: 1 piece - 4 corner, 1 piece – 6 corner, or 2 piece lid and bottom. Pop open, fill, and close. No assembly required.
  • Other styles include; 1 or 2 piece Simplex (double-wall) box, Gable box (with handle), Pillow box, etc.

Why choose a folding box?

The folding box requires 2 or 3 high-speed processes: Printing, die-cutting, and if necessary, gluing. Each of these processes requires a degree of set-up and waste, but run quickly and efficiently once optimum speed is reached. In other words, it is the most cost-efficient, premium-printed packaging solution at high volumes (10,000 units or more).
