The main four categories of custom folding cartons.
Folding cartons are a type of product packaging
that enables you to package products in various ways. For example, they can be folded flat or into cubes or other shapes. Folding cartons come in many different sizes and styles. From simple paperboard boxes that stand upright on their own to reusable plastic crates that can be stacked for long-term storage or transport.
In this article, you’ll learn about the four main types of folding cartons:
Custom Folding Cartons
are the most common type of custom packaging on this list. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. If you need a custom folding carton for your business, here are some things to keep in mind:
- Folding cartons are made to fit a specific product. They can be designed to hold anything from wine bottles to medical equipment or pharmaceuticals. They help protect products during shipping and storage by keeping them secure inside the box while allowing easy access when needed.
- They also come in three different types: palletized (which means they’re ready-to-ship), assembled (preassembled), or tray-packed (unassembled). Tray-packed boxes look like small boxes that fit together on top of each other; they’re designed so multiple units can be shipped at once without worrying about damaging any individual pieces inside them during transport time.
Assembled cartons have already been put together before being shipped out. These are often used for heavier items such as appliances or furniture.
Custom Product Packaging
Custom folding cartons are designed for products. This means that your custom folding cartons will fit your product so that there are no gaps where dirt and moisture can contact your product. This also prevents any damage during transport due to improper fitting or tearing.
Keeping your products clean and dry will reduce waste and save money on replacement costs because they will last longer.
Also known as flat-folding cartons or pouch-style folding cartons, they are made from paperboard and used to package products that are not fragile. They can be made from many layers of paperboard, which gives them strength and durability.
They can be sealed using glue or tape. Because they are not pressed flat like other types of custom packaging, they take up less space on a pallet or shelf once assembled and folded. They’re used for pharmaceutical products because they can store liquids at room temperature without leaking or spilling out the contents inside the container (which would be dangerous). These boxes have several benefits compared to other styles of custom packaging, such as corrugated boxes:
- Decreased shipping costs when compared with similar-sized corrugated boxes.
- Higher capacity for holding heavier items like cans.
- Lighter weight than corrugated boxes.
Packaging design is an important part of the process. You want to ensure that your customers can open and close your packaging and transport it to another location if needed. Your packaging should be eye-catching so that consumers will notice it on store shelves and remember it later when they’re ready to purchase.
Printing services are available for custom folding cartons
- Full-color printing (CMYK)
- Pantone color matching (PMS)
The packaging style for pharmaceutical products helps keep consumers and patients safe. When it comes to the style of packaging for medical or pharmaceutical products, there are four main categories:
- Flat-folding cartons
- Panel-folding cartons
- Semi-rigid folding cartons
- Rigid folding cartons
Flat-folding cartons protect goods that need to be shipped in large quantities. They can be made from different materials, but they’re known for being affordable and flexible. Panel-folding carton styles allow you to construct more complex shapes than flat-folding options without sacrificing protection or safety.
Semi-rigid folding cartons offer strength and flexibility while providing excellent support during transportation. A rigid folding card is a must if you need your product to have maximum structural integrity to receive FDA approval. This category also offers an attractive aesthetic that will help consumers see what’s inside the package before opening it up.
