Get Your Cardboard Box Packaging Customized in Desired Shapes, Styles and Sizes
Cardboard boxes are manufactured in a wide range of shapes and sizes to suit the many uses for the boxes. There are many different styles and shapes of cardboard box packaging, but they all share the same purpose. They must be able to hold a certain weight and size of the product, keep it safe from damage during shipping, and allow for easy handling during the packing process.
These are very important considerations when designing your own custom cardboard packaging. The first thing to consider is how your product will be shipped. If you know what type of shipping container you will need, you can choose from several different styles of cardboard box packaging.
Standard Cardboard Box
This is the most demanded and popular style of a cardboard box. It is produced as either a cube or rectangular shape, with one opening on the top to allow you to access the internals of the box and usually a built-in flap system that allows you to close and secure the box once packed. These boxes are usually used for simple storage, shipping items or moving house.
Corrugated Cardboard Box
The most common type of cardboard box packaging is the corrugated container, which comprises two or more layers of material stacked on top of one another. Each layer has grooves on each side that allow easy stacking and storage. You may have seen these containers in grocery stores, pharmacies, or warehouses where products are stored in large quantities for extended periods.
Bespoke Cardboard Box
This is the same as the standard box. Still, it has been specially designed to fit around your product, maximizing protection and saving money on packing materials like bubble wrap or peanuts. This also ensures that your item will not move inside the box during transportation, and this also helps maintain its integrity throughout transit.
Presentation/ Display Cardboard Box
The presentation/display type of packaging is popular among the retailers or mail-order companies that sell their products in a pre-packaged state. Presentation boxes are normally made from strong cardboard and produce a good first impression when presented to your customer. They will normally have some form of die-cut window that allows your customer to view your product without opening up the packaging itself.
Blank Cardboard Box
This type of cardboard packaging is made from one piece of corrugated material that has been die-cut and scored to form the box. These types of boxes are quick and easy to assemble but have lower bursting strength than glued construction boxes.
Glue less Construction
These types of cardboard packaging boxes require tape or glue for assembly. They are usually made from multiple pieces that have been die-cut and scored to form the box. These boxes have a higher bursting strength than blank construction boxes.
Flatpack boxes are another type of cardboard box often used by removal companies when moving house. Flatpack boxes are erected into shape when they are needed, reducing both storage space taken up on their vehicles and the delivery cost from the manufacturer.
Regular Slotted Container (RSC)
It is a rectangular cardboard box where the two ends of the box are cut to a specific length and width and then glued together. The top of the box is called a cover and usually has one flap that folds inside but can also have two flaps that fold inside or outside.
Telescoping Partition Box
This box is similar to a regular slotted container but with an added partition. This allows items to be stacked on top of each other without damaging them.
Full Overlap Slotted Container
This is a variation of the RSC, but with the flaps overlapping each other by more than half the width. This extra overlap adds strength to the box, allowing heavier items to be packed inside without worrying about crushing it between pallets or during shipping.
Five Panel Folder
This cardboard box has five panels, two side panels, two end panels and one bottom panel. When these panels are folded inward, they form a sleeve that can hold products like posters or maps.
Cardboard Mailing Tube
A mailing tube is a cardboard tube used to ship posters, blueprints, documents, and other rolled rather than folded materials. Mailing tubes are available in various diameters to accommodate different sizes of items being shipped.
Not all cardboard box packaging is the same, however. You can choose from several different styles, each offering its own advantages depending on your product, budget and personal preferences.

Innovative printing techniques for cardboard box packaging to make it stand out
When you are about to start a new business or want to re-launch an existing one, the first thing that comes to mind is the packaging of your product. What kind of box should you use, and what type of design should be printed? So many brands compete with each other regarding product packaging, and so much money is spent on it. The reason is that packaging plays a vital role in attracting customers. The more creative your packaging will be, the more attention your brand will get.
As packaging is a crucial aspect of product marketing, businesses want the best possible printing for their boxes. The quality of the design and the material, along with the printing technique, determines the outcome of your custom box. The quality of print on custom cardboard boxes depends on the technique you choose. Here are some of the most popular advanced printing techniques for cardboard packaging that we employ at ZEE Packaging:
Offset is a printing technique in which a rubber blanket transfers ink from a plate to a substrate. It is one of the most commonly used printing techniques nowadays. This technique is used for both large and small print runs because it allows you to print high-quality graphics at an affordable price.
Flexography or flexo printing is a modern version of relief printing. Flexography uses flexible relief plates wrapped around rotating cylinders on a rotary press. The press applies the ink directly onto the cardboard using flexible relief plates or rotary dies. The rolls of material are passed between the cylinders. They pick up the image from the plate cylinder and then transfer it to another cylinder or directly onto the substrate. Flexography is suitable for larger order quantities (more than 1000 boxes) and gives a good result when it comes to large areas of solid colors. Flexographic printing can be done in registration colors or Pantone colors.
Digital printing refers to printing from a digital-based image directly to a variety of media. In this case, we are talking about the cardboard box. Unlike offset printing, digital printing does not require the use of plates that need to be replaced every time you make changes in your designs. This technique is suitable for smaller order quantities (500 boxes or less) and results in a high-quality print comparable to offset printing.
Screen printing is another option often used to print on cardboard boxes. This method involves forcing ink through a screen made of silk or polyester onto the surface underneath (in this case, cardboard). Silkscreens allow for clean and complex shapes, but the process can be time-consuming and expensive if you're looking to print high volumes.
Versatile Finishing Options to Give Stunning Look to Cardboard Box Packaging
The printing and finishing techniques used by a company make all the difference in the appearance of the custom cardboard boxes. A well-designed and professionally finished cardboard box can help enhance your product's value.
The finishing options offered by ZEE Packaging include gloss, matte, spot UV, phantom UV, spot AQ, gold/silver stamping and embossing. In addition to these traditional techniques, you can also get customized boxes with window cut-outs or die-cut handles. You can customize them with different printing and finishing options offered by ZEE Packaging. It will give an alluring look and enhance the durability of the box.
Lamination is an economical solution for adding shine to your cardboard box packaging and protecting your product from the external environment. Laminated boxes can also be used for shipping purposes as they have high resistance against water and moisture. You can choose between gloss and matte lamination depending upon your requirement.
Die-cutting is a finishing technique that uses a die to cut the cardboard into a given shape. The die is typically made out of metal and is custom-designed to fit either the graphics or the shape of the desired product. The die is then attached to an advanced press machine, which applies pressure and heat to the paper or cardboard to cut it into the desired shape. The use of dies means that there are no limitations in shapes, sizes, or styles so that they can be used for any type of custom box printing.
UV coating involves using ultraviolet light to apply a glossy protective layer on top of printed images on cardboard boxes. It has more visual appeal than traditional varnishes, plus it has excellent durability against wear. The coating acts as a barrier to the elements and some types of dirt, but it can also change the appearance of the cardboard box. The UV coating makes the cardboard appear glossy, while a regular varnish has less sheen or gloss. UV coated cardboard boxes can be found in various sizes and shapes, including square, rectangular oval-shaped with lids or without lids, depending on your needs for shipping purposes!
Embossing and Debossing
These two processes produce raised or recessed designs on a cardboard box or even a label. The process includes pressing a metal plate onto the surface to get the desired design with raised or recessed effect. This technique is widely used on book covers and greeting cards as it gives an elegant touch to the product. In the case of embossing, the design is raised, while in debossing, it is recessed from the surface. It is best used on labels of soft drink bottles, cosmetic products, etc. It highlights your brand name at first glance.
A luxurious metallic effect is applied to the box by heating a die that stamps foil onto the surface of the board. Foil stamping works particularly well on textured boards. We offer a full foil stamping service, available in gold, silver or any other color on request.
Some Other Finishing Options to Enhance the Usability and Effectiveness of Cardboard Box
This is the simplest and cheapest type of finishing for cardboard boxes and involves using tape to hold the box together. Taping can also be used to secure inserts and flaps in place as well as reinforce corners and edges.
Glue is another cheap option for finishing cardboard packaging. It's often used in combination with taping to provide extra strength and durability and prevent fraying or tearing at seams or folds in the cardboard.
Adhesive labels can be used on cardboard packaging to provide branding, logos, text, barcodes etc. These can also add extra strength to the box by making it more rigid and less likely to bend or crumple when handled.
Grommets can be used for tying down large cardboard boxes to pallets or skids or as handles for carrying smaller mailer-style corrugated boxes.
Staples can be combined with glue or tape to close small cardboard boxes that aren't under too much pressure. Staples are also used for securing hinges when making folding cartons.
