Custom BoxesDo you need a quote? Here are some basic information that we will need to assist you. If you already know what you need, click here to request a quote.
STEP 1: MEASURE YOUR BOX
STEP 2: WHAT IS THE WEIGHT OF YOUR PRODUCT?
Approximately how heavy is the product that you will be putting into this box?
STEP 3: WHAT IS THE PRODUCT QUANTITY?
Specify the quantity that you require. For example, you would like a quote on 250, 500 and 1000 boxes.
STEP 4: WHAT IS THE BOX STYLE?
|Regular Slotted Carton (RSC) – Standard packing box. The two outer flaps are
one-half the carton’s width, so that they meet at the centre of the box when folded.
This style requires tape on the top and base for closure.
The RSC can be used for most products and is the most common box style.
|Five Panel Folder (FPF) - A single cut and scored piece features a fifth panel used
as a closing flap, completely covering a side panel. This style requires tape on the
side and top and base openings.
|Corner Cut Folder (CCF) - One piece of board is cut so that it provides a flat bottom,
with flaps forming the sides and ends, and extensions of the side flaps meeting to
form the top. This style requires one tape line on the top for closure.
|Corner Cut Folder – With Dust Flaps (CCFWDF) – As the corner cut folder with
additional panels to cover the corner. This style is suitable for items with a height
over 120mm. This style requires one tape line on the top for closure.
|Die Cut Carton- A single cut panel which has been die cut to your size and style.
No gluing. Flaps fold in to assemble.
|Half Slotted Carton (HSC) – Open top box which tapes up on the base.
Similar to the RSC without the top panels for closure.
|Full Flap Slotted Carton (FFSC) – Similar to the RSC. Instead of the two outer flaps
being one-half of the container's width, they are full width. The closures are reinforced
with double strength.
STEP 5: WHAT IS THE BOARD GRADE?
When deciding which board grade you require there are a number of factors to consider such as, weight of product, storage conditions, printing and presentation. The information below is to be used as a guide line in helping you make that decision. If you are unsure we can provide you with recommendations.
FLUTE TYPE'Flute' is the corrugation between the internal and external lining papers of the board. The various flutes available offer different properties over each other such as Compression, Crush or Burst strength, Print-ability or storage space.
B FluteBoard thickness approximately 3mm.
The most widely used flute profile due to its all round compression strength, compactness, printability and cost effectiveness.
C FluteBoard thickness approximately 4mm.
A larger flute than 'B' offering greater compression strength, but can be more easily crushed.
BC Flute (double wall)Board thickness approximately 7mm.
A combination of 'B' and 'C' flute is normally used when compression and stacking strength is important.
Suggested Board Grades for Content WeightThe quality and strength of the board lining papers are generally determined by the weight per square meter in Grams e.g. 125, and also content mix of new and recycled wood fibre Kraft paper ('K') being of better quality (higher content of new wood fibre) than Test paper ('T').
For example: 500 K/T B would mean the weight of the paper used is 500 grams per square meter, the external paper being Kraft and the internal being Test quality with 'B' fluting between.
