Folding carton boxes, also known as custom product boxes, are paperboard boxes primarily used for individual product packaging (e.g. perfume, candles, and beauty items). These boxes typically have a tuck flap on one or both ends of the box. Folding cartons can be fully customized with print on the outside and inside of the box, giving you the best storyboard to share your brand.

The price depends on the size of the box, the amount of printing required, additional features such as embossing, and the quantity, so prices can vary quite a bit depending on these elements. As an example, for a 3" x 3" x 3" folding carton box, the price ranges from:

  • US$0.45 - US$4 per unit for volumes under 1000 units
  • US$0.20 to US$0.40 per unit for volumes over 1000 units.

Custom folding boxes are great for lightweight products such as cosmetics, candles, toys, perfumes, and more. The feature of printing on the inside and out as well as the add ons such as embossing and foil stamping give you the chance to market your brand using your boxes.

Yes, you can! You can get as creative as you feel with the design. Custom prints and add ons such as embossing, debossing, foil stamping, spot UV, soft touch and more only add to the aesthetic.

Folding boxes are typically square or rectangular. If you have a different style in mind, let us know!

We do recommend an external carton for shipping. Folding cartons use thin material and shipping them on their own could result in scratches and dents on the boxes. In order to ensure your product and packaging is secure until it reaches the hands of your customers, you could opt for a blank kraft mailer box as an external shipping carton. After all, your packaging is the first thing your consumers will see, so ensure your first impressions count!

All folding carton boxes come with standard matte or glossy varnish. Other add-ons include:

  • Embossing and debossing: Embossing is the process of creating a raised pattern on paper, fabric, wood or other materials. It gives your custom printed box a unique texture and look. Not only patterns, but you can also emboss your company name or logo to ensure your branding stands out (pun intended). Debossing, on the other hand, is when the pattern is imprinted into your packaging, creating a depressed effect on your box.
  • Foil stamping: Also known as hot stamping, uses heat, pressure and foil to create shiny and luxurious looking imprinted patterns and words on your packaging. Foil stamping is both environmentally friendly and economical.
  • Spot UV: Spot varnish or spot UV is the process of giving a part of a pattern or design an added layer of coating and using UV light to cure it, in order for it to have a striking appearance.
  • Soft-touch: Soft-touch finish or soft-touch coating is applied onto the box after printing to give it a velvety texture and enhance the look and appeal.

We use Solid Bleached Sulphate (SBS) paper for folding carton boxes which is a standard 350-400gsm. For kraft folding carton boxes, we use kraft paper that is 300-350gsm. If you're looking for a specific gsm, get in touch!

Absolutely! The SBS paper we use is made from mostly post-consumer content, and we use soy-based ink for all print.

PackMojo aims to be eco-friendly with all our practices. Right from the use of recyclable materials to sustainable inks, we offer several ways in which your packaging can be sustainable. Click here to learn more.
