Foldable Rigid Boxes

Want the premium feel of a rigid box with a smaller budget? Foldable rigid boxes, with the use of different materials, provide the sturdiness and are delivered to you flattened. The benefit? You save on shipping fees and storage space. Watch this video to see how to assemble a foldable rigid box.

How are Rigid Boxes Made?

Rigid Box Production Process Flat Paperboard

Rigid boxes start off with a flat paperboard, usually at least 800gsm thick where it is cut and scored to its correct size. The dotted lines show where the paperboard will then be folded up.

Rigid Box Production Process Paperboard Folded Up

The sides of the box are folded up and secured to form the base shape of the box. Once folded, you have the basic skeleton of your packaging.

Rigid Box Production Process Wrap

A design is printed onto a piece of paper (the wrap), gets laminated, and other add-ons such as foil stamping or embossing is also done now. The wrap is then automatically glued to the shape of the box.

Rigid Box Production Process Finished Product

The wrap covers your box tightly and brings your rigid boxes to life. Voila!

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 a rough guide:

  • Lower volumes (<1000) = US$5 - US$10 per unit.
  • Higher volumes (>1000) = US$0.50 to US$5 per unit.

Rigid boxes are typically more expensive to make and do cost more than other alternatives. Foldable rigid boxes are a type of rigid box that might better fit your budget. These boxes are less expensive to make and cheaper to ship to you since they can be flattened. Mailer boxes, while not as thick as rigid boxes, offer great benefits as well!

Custom gift boxes are great if you want to give your products a premium and luxury feel. You can package just about anything in these boxes right from clothing and shoes to candles, jewelry, books, designer handbags, electronics, and more!

Yes you can! You can get as creative as you feel with the design.

Rigid boxes are typically square or rectangular, but they can be any shape you'd like! We do not have any minimum and maximum sizes - you can let us know what you have in mind and we'll let you know if it's feasible! We use materials according to the sizes given and aim to keep the wastage to a minimum.

We do recommend an external carton for shipping. Rigid boxes shipped on their own or in thin polybags could cause dents on the edges and scratches on the boxes. In order to ensure your premium packing stays premium until it reaches the hands of your customers, you could opt for a blank kraft mailer box as an external shipping carton.

Generally, rigid boxes are around 1000gsm thick and would depend on the size of your box. We're always happy to work with your specific requirements if you have any!

All rigid boxes come with standard matte lamination or glossy lamination. 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.

Solid bleached sulphate (SBS) paper is used to cover a standard rigid box, and is the material that's used to print on as well.

Kraft rigid boxes use kraft paper. It is paper or cardboard that is derived from chemical pulp extracted in the process of converting wood into wood pulp. Kraft can withstand being stretched and pulled making it tear resistant. It is also more eco friendly than SBS paper.

Custom rigid boxes are environmentally friendly and a great alternative for plastic packaging! Most commonly, these gift boxes use SBS paper. The boxes are then printed on and laminated. Without lamination, boxes that use SBS are 100% recyclable. While using sustainable inks is eco-friendly, using lamination makes it harder to recycle the boxes since laminating involves the use of a thin layer of plastic.

Kraft rigid boxes are made of kraft paper which is more eco-friendly than SBS paper as they are not bleached. Kraft gift boxes aren't usually laminated, making them fully recyclable.

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.
