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.
