Foldable & Lid and Base Boxes

Foldable Lid and Base Boxes

Foldable lid and base boxes, also known as foldable two piece product boxes, are great for storing lightweight products such as apparel or food items. The lid and base can be folded together easily to form a sturdy box structure. While foldable boxes are thinner than rigid boxes, they can be shipped flat so that you save on shipping costs. For sturdier lid and base packaging that cannot be flattened, opt for rigid boxes instead. Alternatively, you can also browse our folding cartons.

Can I order a printed sample of my foldable lid and base box?

Yes! We can provide a Simplified Sample which is printed but doesn't include finishes (e.g. matte/glossy) nor add-ons such as foil stamping or embossing. We'll include a dieline for you to add your artwork to once you place an order for a sample. For two piece rigid boxes, please visit the rigid box page for more information.

What format should I provide my artwork to you in?

Please send us your artwork in a dieline file (PDF or AI format) that can be edited in Adobe Illustrator. Please keep the dieline as a separate layer in your AI file, and be sure to follow all of these dieline design tips to ensure your artwork file is production-ready.

Does my foldable two piece box need extra packaging when being shipped?

While these can be sturdy, we do recommend shipping them in an external carton such as mailer boxes to ensure your foldable two piece box doesn't get crushed during transit.
