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.

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!
