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.
