The price of your packaging is dependent on how many sides you will be printing on. For packaging such as mailer boxes, folding carton boxes, and rigid boxes, we'll ask if you want any artwork printed on the outside of the box, inside of the box, or both.
We produce all of our mailer boxes using offset printers as it yields the highest quality print. Designs are printed directly on the substrate (paper) which is then laminated (i.e. glued) to the corrugated board. Printing on a smooth substrate as opposed to printing directly on corrugated cardboard results in higher quality results.
The small tradeoff is that because we're using an extra layer of substrate (paper), it makes the box slightly thicker and heavier. Upon your request, we can also print using flexographic printers. Please contact us for more information!
Your artwork is printed on a substrate (paper), then laminated to the outside of the corrugated board. The layers are:
Your artwork is printed on two substrates (paper), then laminated to the outside and inside of the corrugated board. The layers are:
Your artwork is printed directly on the liner of the corrugated board and there is no additional substrate layer. The quality of print won't be as high as with offset printers, but this option allows your boxes to be more lightweight.
All artwork for rigid boxes is printed on a thin substrate (paper), which is then wrapped around the thick paperboard. Learn about how rigid boxes are made.
Your artwork is printed on a substrate (paper), then wrapped around the outside of the paperboard. The inside of the box is blank white, and the outer substrate is will be slightly visible on the inside because it's wrapped.
Your artwork is printed on two substrates (paper). The inside artwork is wrapped around the paperboard first, then the outside artwork is wrapped last. Note that the outside substrate will cover the inside artwork slightly.
