Folding Paper Boxes & Trays

The folding paper boxes, trays are simple diecut paper boxes, which can be assembled easily without the help of the glue. Unlike the rigid paper boxes, they are usually packed in the flat state and are shipped flat. It is a very popular paper printed box for the light-weight products, like gifts and chocolates.

The folding paper box has the cover and base, which are both folding paper trays.

The folding paper boxes and trays are usually made of the thin paperboards, like CCNB chipboard, SBS C1S, C2S paperboard, F flute corrugated board according to the strength requirement. The lift off lid paper box above is a custom paper box for the snack food, almond toffee. It is made of the 20pt 350gsm SBS C1S paperboard. The cover and base are both paper trays, which come together to have a lift off lid paper box structure.

The custom paper box has 2 separate parts, the top cover and the bottom base. Both has the CMYK full color printing outside and white color inside. The printed box has the glossy laminating finish to have a glossy effect outside.

There are 2 main benefits for such a folding paper box. First, it is a simple diecut paper box, which can be set up without the help of the glue. Therefore, it is more environmental friendly. Second, the boxes can be shipped flat, packed flat. There are less fees for the delivery and warehouse storage. The bad thing is that it takes some time to assemble it. Like any other boxes, there is not a perfect solution.

Inquiry from the client:

Hi Kris,

We are a small business in Australia looking for prices on custom boxes we already get made locally. Looking over your website I can’t see anything like we currently use so I have got our Dieline Template attached for you to look at and see if you can create this style for us.

As I’ve stated on the Templates all measurements are in mm and they are 0.5mm paperboard.
I have also attached a photo to show the glued sections on both the lid and base with all other lines pressed so we can fold it up for packaging.
I have also attached 1 of the 4 designs we currently use. All are very similar. We are looking at a few new designs on the same style boxes.
If you can accomodate making this type of packaging can you give a quote for 20,000 units. 
If you need any more information please let me know.
Thanks Andrew Schembri
