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. 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

PackMojo made the entire process from creating the artwork, getting a press proof right through to final production a breeze. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.


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.


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.
