Folding Carton Boxes

Folding carton boxes, also known as custom product boxes, are paperboard boxes primarily used for packaging individual products (e.g. perfume, candles, beauty products). These boxes usually have tuck flaps on one or both ends of the box, and can be corrugated for storing fragile or heavier products (check out other corrugated box types here). 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.

What our customers have to say

Wendy and the team at PackMojo were incredible. After a disaster with a previous printer it was such a smooth and enjoyable process to work with the PackMojo crew - now I recommend them to everyone! The quality of printing is exceptional, as is the material offerings. They were contactable whenever I needed and always delivered before our agreed timing. All in all, 8 out of 5!


We didnt have much knowledge about packaging and the design process of it, so with the help of PackMojo we created a technical, advanced, environmentally friendly packaging set which we really like. PackMojo is quick and helpful and have an extended knowledge of whats possible in packaging. Thank you for your support!!


PackMojo reached out to me about a year ago through an introduction from a mutual friend and I am so glad they did. I had been racking my brains trying to figure out how to create a cost-efficient customised packaging + insert for my Lacquer Kit product and I never knew that there was a company like PackMojo out there that could provide me with the solutions. I only wished I found out about PackMojo earlier!

Can I order a printed sample of my folding carton 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.

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 folding carton need extra packaging when being shipped?

We would highly recommend this as folding carton boxes aren't designed to withstand the wear and tear of shipping. It's best to packaging your folding carton boxes in an external mailer box or shipping carton.
