E Flute Corrugated Printed Box for Helmet Packaging

In this article, we will talk about a E flute corrugated box we made for the Circuit Of The Americas, which is a very famous brand.

The most intriguing thing about the box is the PMS color printing, the black color and the blue color, which makes the printing look very crisp. We do the litho printing on our Heidelberg Speed-master press, which has the brilliant image effect. Also the glossy laminating is applied to protect the printing inks and adds a glossy effect.

As for the box structure,  it is the typical TTSLB box style, which refers to the tuck top snap locked bottom. The advantage of the box is that it can be assembled within a minute for the helmet packaging. While for the shipping, it is flat shipped.


While for the paperboard used, we used the 300gsm CCNB paperboard laminated on the E flute corrugated board. This gives the box enough rigidity and strength to protect the helmet inside during the transportation.

Corrugated Box Printed Inside and Out

This article is about the high-end corrugated box printed inside and out. Corrugated box can be luxury and high-end when it is printed inside and out by using the B flute, E flute or F flute corrugated board.

There are 2 printing solution to the double sided printed corrugated box. One is the litho printing, which is also referred to as offset printing. The other solution is the flexo printing.

The 2 solution has quite the different production process.

For the paper material, the litho printing is usually applied on the E flute corrugated box, which usually has 4 layers, CCNB paperboard laminated on both sides.  It is strong but heavy due to the high grammage.  While for the felxo printed cartons, the 3 layer B flute paperboard is used with white kraft liner on both sides.

For the printing quality, the litho printing has the more vivid and crisp color. While the flexo printing usually has the simplicity of beauty. Litho Printing Solution

Great Strength Paperboard

The board for the corrugated box printed inside and out consists of 4 layers, 300gsm art paper (SBS C1S paperboard) on the exterior and interior of the box, the middle 140gsm E flute paper and the 170gsm kraft liner. The combination gives the paperboard the excellent rigidity and durability, which is better than the ordinary 3-ply corrugated board. This will be very useful for the shipping of the products inside.
