Carton Board Packaging
Carton board packaging or, simply put, ‘printed cartons’ are a brilliantly customisable, sustainable and practical packaging solution.
Eliminating plastic from the packaging chain is a key focus for all packaging suppliers, and cartons give us the opportunity for almost unlimited customisation without costing the earth.

The Three Main Types of Boxes
Also known simply as cartons, cartonboard, paperboard cartons and paperboard boxes. These are the kind of boxes that you see in most shops. They are lightweight, highly customisable and extremely popular.
Cartons are made from printed carton board or boxboard, in a range of thicknesses (microns). The board is cut to shape with a cutting form, creased, folded and glued along one edge to created a flat carton which is then ready for packing.
Normally used for premium and luxury products, rigid boxes are sturdy and can be supplied as two part boxes, otherwise know as lid and base boxes. These can be designed in a variety of shapes and sizes with different closures, which makes them perfect for presentations, gift boxes, jewellery boxes and promotions.
This type of box is made by wrapping a printed paper around a stiff rigid board. All sorts or printing techniques and finishing touches can be added to the wrapping paper to add a touch of class to your product.
As well as being used for general packing and transportation, corrugated boxes can be customised for display, retail and other forms of primary packaging. They are made of a central 'fluted' or wavy layer of card lined on one or both sides to give a smooth surface for printing and customisation.
Different grades of fluting relate to the size and number of waves, e.g. E-Flute / C-Flute etc. Typically the larger flute sizes (A-Flute) have more cushioning properties, while smaller flute sizes (E-Flute) offer a flatter finished surface.
