Corrugated Printed Box- 0206 Center Special Full Overlap Container (SFF)

The following is an initial set of custom paper box styles that form the basis from which a large majority of corrugated boxes are developed. Each of these paper printed box styles is accompanied with its International Case Code, name, an acronym, an image, a description, and a layout.

Additional corrugated box styles may be found in the Corrugated Printed Box Handbook, which is available our download page.

0201 Regular Slotted Carton (RSC)

All flaps of the corrugated printed box have the same length, and the two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one half the box’s width, so that they meet at the center of the box when folded. If the product requires a flat, even bottom surface, or the protection of two full layers, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps. This is a highly efficient design for many applications in various industry. There is very little manufacturing waste of the paper material. This corrugated printed box can be used for most products and is the most common corrugated box style.

There are a number of derivative box styles of the RSC that are widely use in the packaging industry.

0200 Half Slotted Carton (HSC) is a RSC style corrugated box without the top flaps.

0202 Overlap Slotted Carton (OSC) is a RSC style paper box with the outer flaps partially overlapping on the top or at the bottom.

0203 Full Overlap Slotted Carton (FOL). A RSC carton with the both sets of outer flaps overlapping to the full width of the custom corrugated box.

0204 Center Special Slotted Carton (CSSC). A RSC shipping box with inner and outer flaps cut at different dimensions so that both pairs of flaps meet in the center of the corrugated printed box.

0205 Center Special Overlap Slotted Carton (CSO) is a corrugated box with inner flaps meeting and outer flaps partially overlapping.

0206 Center Special Full Overlap Carton (SFF) is a strong corrugated shipping carton with inner flaps meeting and the outer flaps verlapping to the full width of the corrugated shipping box.

In this article, we will talk about a special full overlap carton. This is a heavy duty oriented corrugated printed box, which carries the bolts and nuts inside. It is made of the B flute corrugated paperboard, which has the white color outside. The texts are black color printed.

The corrugated mailer has the tuck lock on the front panel to close the box tightly.

The mailer box is die cut out of a whole piece of E flute, or B flute corrugated board, with connected lid, front panel and bottom tray. The front panel has the roll end on the sides to tuck into the bottom tray. With such structure, the corrugated printed box provides extremely sturdy support on the sides and front panel. The corrugated mailer could handle heavy duty packaging and shipment directly,

In this post, we will introduce a special corrugated mailer box. The mailer box has the tuck lock on the front panel for tight closure.  With this tuck closure, the tape can be avoided to seal the box well. Besides, it has a half finger cutout to open the box easily.

The other appealing feature of the corrugated box is its white kraft color inside, which is a perfect alternative to the kraft color inside. The white kraft color comes from the white kraft paper, which is gluded on the back of the fluting paper box.

On the outside, the corrugated printed box has the full color printing for the UV box.  And there is a blue color printing for the background color. The top and the bottom has the white color. The print ink outside is protected by the matte laminating finish. Also, the UV box can be spot UV varnished to have an eye appealing visual effect.

A Great Custom Corrugated Paperboard Insert

The paperboard insert inside the custom paper box can be quite flexible. And there are quite many alternatives. Custom corrugated inserts are widely used for some heavy duty shipping cartons and corrugated mailers.

The E flute corrugated board, F flute corrugated board are simply diecut to be flat packed and shipped to the production line. But the design process of the custom corrugated insert takes a long time. We need create many graphic designs for the structure as well samples for the small revision. All we need do is to get a perfect insert, which can hold and protect the items inside very well.

In this article, we will introduce a great corrugated paperboard insert for a toy bricks packaging box. It is used as a holder inside a corrugated mailer.

As shown in the picture above, the corrugated tray has very strong shoulders on the sides, which can resist very strong pressure outside. The custom paper box is quite difficult to crush. Thus, it would have a perfect protection for the toy bricks inside. And the product inside are not possible to be damaged or broken at all.

One of the great benefits of such a tray insert inside is that we can have a thin paperboard for the outer paper box. When the paperboard used for the paper printed box is thin, the printing quality can be better, very impressive and beautiful.  Another great benefit is that the total cost won’t increase a lot.
