Recently we made a POP display box for an American client who used the box to pack the mist humidifier. The client sent us 12 mist humidifiers and let us to create the display template for them. The humidifier is very well designed, which has a very attractive look, like a tulip.  The stem of the tulip is fixed inside a clam-shell blister, which is used to pack the cords of the device.

The corrugated POP display box consists of 3 parts, the display box and 2 separate die-cut inserts. The clam-shell blister of the humidifier can slide into the cut of the white insert below. It is made of the E flute corrugated board, which is the same as the display box. The brown die-cut paperboard below is a very thick corrugated board, which has the AB flute combination. It is around 9mm in thickness, used to fasten the base of the humidifier and to prevent it from moving side to side.

The print design for the pop display box is quite clean and simple. The printing color turns out very crisp and vivid. It is a typical CMYK full color printed corrugated display. When the printing is finished, we laminate a glossy film on the top of the inks to protect the graphics from scratching and smudging. The glossy laminate is used used to prevent the folds of the display box from cracking.





Matte Black Corrugated Box Printed Inside and Outside

Corrugated Box can be beautiful and high-end. Sometimes it can rival the rigid paper box when you get a great design. The matte black corrugated box below which is printed inside and outside is a great case in point.

The core concept for the box design is simplicity. Only 2 colors are used, black and green. It has the matte black laminating outside the box and the semi-glossy varnishing finish inside. The two colors blends quite well, which is very aesthetically pleasing. On the top of the box is the line drawings, while on the back of the box is the brand name and the website address.

The inside printing of the corrugated box is green color with the text design.

Another important factor of the successful design of the box is the E flute corrugated board used, which has the great combination of strength and beauty. It is only 2mm in thickness,, leading to a crisp image printing.

The special structure of the box is roll end tuck top with the dust flaps, which makes the box strong enough for the postage and express purpose. This is also a typical mailer box.

Pantone Silver Inks Printing and Silver Hot Foil

Pantone metallic silver inks printing and the silver hot foil are 2 different methods to achieve the metallic silver effect on the paper printed box.

Recently we happened to make a very special E flute corrugated printed box for our client, which has the pantone silver inks printing for the background color and silver hot foil stamping for the logo text.

Pantone Silver Inks Printing

There are 2 kinds of metallic inks available for the pantone silver printing, the pantone 877C and the pantone silver 107077C.  And there is an obvious contrast between these 2 inks.

PANTONE 877 C is the silver base used to blend the ‘conventional’ PANTONE Metallic colors, which have existed since the mid-to-late 1980’s.


PANTONE Silver 10077 C is the specialized, non-leafing silver base manufactured by Eckart and used to formulate the PANTONE Premium Metallic colors, which were introduced in May 2010 with the PANTONE PLUS SERIES upgrade.

‘Conventional’ metallic base colors contain metal flake, which leafs to the surface as the ink dries to produce the metallic effect.  The extent of this ‘leafing characteristic’ can vary depending on the length of time it takes for the ink to dry.  This can lead to inconsistencies in the appearance of the colors from run to run.

Within the PANTONE Silver 10077 ink, the metallic particles are evenly dispersed within the vehicle of the ink, thereby removing this ‘leafing characteristic’ and leading to more consistently repeatable results.

Besides the metallic silver inks printing, another popuplar metallic inks printing is the metallic gold color printing, PMS 872.  They are widely used for the high-end corrugated printed boxes, paper printed boxes and rigid paper boxes.

Silver Hot Foil

Silver hot foil as well as gold hot foil is one of the most popular color for the hot foil finish, which is a speical kind of finish where paper foil is used to create striking designs and graphics on the outer surface of the packaging box. It gives the paper printed box a shiny and incredible look, adding a very luxury feel. The silver hot foil is widely used on the cosmetic paper boxes and rigid boxes.
