Types of cardboard boxes

Types of cardboard boxes

Some box models can be produced using die-cutters and there are also boxes where this is not necessary. To make the most cost-effective decision for your business, it is important to consider the benefits of each solution. Here are the advantages of a group of standard boxes such as flap boxes, bottom + lid or so-called wrap boxes, and cut (die-cut) boxes.



The group of standard boxes includes:

  • simple flap boxes (FEFCO 201)
  • flap boxes with full flaps (FEFCO 203)
  • boxes bottom + lid (FEFCO 300)
  • wrap-around boxes (FEFCO 409)

Advantages of the above standard cardboard boxes:

  • popular cardboard box models available on the market,
  • no need for initial die-cutting costs,
  • very easy to assemble,
  • delivered flat takes up little storage space,
  • economical and versatile,
  • customisable dimensions,
  • smaller production minimums than cut boxes,
  • are made up of flaps which, when folded, cover the entire product dimension.

Advantages of cut (die-cut) boxes:

  • no packing tape is required to assemble the box,
  • aesthetic appearance,
  • huge choice of styles, very high personalisation possibilities,
  • printing on such boxes looks much more favourable,
  • possibility to produce dedicated inserts for boxes, which immobilise the product inside the box,
  • possibility to use the box not only for shipping, but also as a gift box or product box.

If you've just set up your online shop and don't want to invest a lot of money from the start - then we recommend the standard box solution. The choice comes down to your personal preference of design and style suitable for your products.
