An Inquiry of a Candle Box

We are a small candle manufacturer in the UK about to launch a glassware range next year in the UK.  We take receipt of all decorated glassware later this month and are now looking at trying to finalise the packaging supply.

Hoping the attached is self-explanatory.  The artwork is naturally draft from a dimension perspective as it will require modification to accommodate the final box design / material selection.  Please note the template design adopted is not finalised, the current template has purely been used to understand and demonstrate artwork layout and content.

he quantities would be as previously discussed.  We are looking for luxury feel to the packaging and certainly open to any suggestions you may have with regard to finishes etc.

Our initial thoughts are for a clean, simple, contemporary design i.e. white (not brilliant white) with blue foiling for the front text and the horizontal band. All text on side, base and back will require to be printed in CMYK.

Let me know your thoughts and if it is something you may be interested in doing.

See if you are able to manufacture flat pack type boxes with internal liner.

 

We are a small candle manufacturer in the UK and looking for 3 sizes of candle and diffuser packaging.

 

Although the packaging is to be flat pack we are keen to present a quality luxury feel to the box i.e. smooth texture white finish, blue foiling and sharp printing.

Packaging Solution

We have the soft touch paper as your options. It would render a very luxury feel at the first sight, which is pure, clean and pretty. Maybe we can produce some sample boxes first if you are interested.

I thought flat pack candle containers have an internal liner, the weights of the candles and diffusers are…

  • 30cl candle – 0.7kg (700gm)
  • 55cl candle – 1.2kg (1200gm)
  • 100ml diffuser – 0.36kg (360gm)

Do you think the 400gsm will support all of these?

A separate liner would cost a lot more.
I suggest that we use the F flute corrugated board, white liner inside, which is 1.2mm in thickness. Check the box attached.

When Embossing Comes Across Foil Stamping

With the embossing finish, letters and images of the logo raise in relief from the paperboard. Thus, the logo stands out. While during the foil stamping process, the brilliant color on the foil paper is partly transferred to paperboard under the pressure of the engraved die, impressing a glittering logo on the paper printed box. Hence, when embossing comes across foil stamping, a printed paper box starts to be under a glamour, being attractive, alluring and extravagant.

Recently we made such a custom paper box for a client from UK, which gives us an opportunity to tell our customers more details by pictures.

When embossing comes across foil stamping…


This is a custom paper box for the coffee packaging with its brand name JEEVES & JERICHO embossed and foil stamped. The color of the foil is glossy black, glittering brightly by reflection of the light. Thus, the customers can recognize the brand easily in the store. Besides the logo texts, the black stars on the sides also have a glossy black color foil stamping, very appealing and attractive.

Glamorous as it is, the perfect alignment of the embossing and foil stamping is the key. Incorrect and improper registration can lead to disasters, an ugly look paper box. Therefore, the registration is the biggest challenge during the operation. Patience and caution are entailed in the process to prevent any dangers and risks, which mean a huge financial loss.

The coffee paper box is printed on both sides, inside and outside.  With regard to the inside, the finish inside is quite simple compared with the complicated finish outside. It is just black color printed with some white introductory texts on the top lid.

The package adopts a TTSLB box structure with the tuck top and snap locked bottom, which is quite easy to be assembled on the production line. It is made of the 400gsm, 22pt SBS C2S paperboard, providing enough strength for the good protection of the coffee inside.

Jewelry Paper Box With Gold Foil Stamping

Recently we made a sample box for Aura Jewelry, which is a very well-know brand in Europe.  There are several designs, each of which was printed with a solid PMS color for the under-painting. Thereafter, a soft touch finish was added to the printed paper box by doing a soft touch laminating outside, which gives the paper box a velvet touch outside, soft, smooth and silken.

Thereafter, the logo was gold foil stamped. The interesting and intriguing part of the custom paper box is the crown like logo, which consists of a lot of fine dots and lines. They very almost inconspicuous. The foil stamping for the logo would be quite demanding, which would require much time, effort and attention.

Jewelry Paper Boxes of 7 different designs, each of which has a PMS color printed as under painting.

With regard to the box structure, the jewelry paper box adopts the a straight tuck end paper box style. Because the length, width and height of the printed paper box have the same dimension, it is like a cube, which is also referred to cubic paper box.
