What is the purpose of carton packaging?

Folding carton packaging is a versatile solution that offers an optimal surface for high-quality printing and is susceptible to a wide variety of special finishes compared to its corrugated counterpart.
Commonly used across the entire retail market, folding cartons are among the most popular packaging solutions due to their affordability and capability to be highly customizable.

What folding carton box styles do you offer?

We carry a wide range of folding carton packaging styles to choose from. Some of our most popular options include:

  • Straight Tuck End
  • Reverse Tuck End
  • Auto Bottom
  • And many more...

However, if you are not seeing a particular style that fits your needs, our structural engineering team can custom design a structure based on your needs. Contact us here to get started.

Can folding cartons be recycled?

Absolutely! All paperboards can be recycled; however, this may change based on the coatings and inks you add to your packaging.
As a general tip, if you are looking to be more sustainable and avoid any possibility that your packaging is not fully recyclable, we recommend going with Kraft Paperboard printed with vegetable inks. This ensures that your paperboard packaging is not only recyclable but also safely biodegradable!

How important is the type of paperboard used for folding carton?

It's essential! Folding carton has one of the largest collections of options for paper, making it highly customizable. In addition, there are plenty of different paperboard types with unique characteristics, textures, and thicknesses available to craft a unique box.
If you are having trouble or looking for a specific paperboard, our product specialists and sourcing team will be able to help you decide or find the specific paperboard you need. Contact us here.

What coatings work best for folding carton packaging?

Varnish, Aqueous (AQ) coatings are most popular for folding carton packaging. AQ coating is a water-based coating that is fast drying and eco-friendly. On the other hand, Varnish is not eco-friendly but provides an optimal moisture barrier to protect your products and artwork designs. Both AQ coatings and Varnishes allow for either a matte or glossy finish.
