How to Measure a Box

To get the most accurate estimate when ordering a retail packaging  folding carton box, use this as a guideline to give the correct measurements.

ALWAYS MEASURE THIS WAY:
1. Length (L) x 2. Width (W) x 3. Depth (D)

Which way is length?

1. LENGTH
Sit the package on its Tucks. Face the front of the package in front of you. Length of the face panel (usually the main graphic panel) is measured right to left, score to score of that panel only.

2. WIDTH
Sit the package on its Tucks. Face the front of the package in front of you. Length of the face panel (usually the main graphic panel) is measured right to left, score to score of that panel only.

Note:  The length and width are always meausred on the box openning  direction.

3. DEPTH (HEIGHT)
Depth of package is last. The “load” dimension of the product.
