The road to designing a custom box can be frustrating. There are a few things that can make the process much easier and keep you a happier designer.
Corrugate v. Paperboard Boxes
What you need depends on how the box will be used.
If you are carrying heavy wood, tile or glass samples, using the box as a mailer or protecting a delicate sample you may want to use a corrugate box. There are different thicknesses of corrugate giving you strength options along with the visual composition of your box.
Paperboard boxes, on the hand, are great for information or lighter samples. These are not great as mailers except in the small sizes. They can be used for organizing information (like patient medical information) with a set of tab dividers. This way variable information (each patient is different!) can be easily added as needed.
Customizing you boxes
Whether you are offset printing, foil stamping, direct printing (corrugates), using spot UV highlights, both paperboard and corrugate boxes offer a wide range of options depending on the look and feel you design. If you can design it, chances are it can be done!
Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, is beautiful, idyllic and needed some presentation materials. We got excited.
Turtle Bay Resort is an absolutely gorgeous resort on Oahu in Hawaii. When they contacted us about creating some 3 ring half sheet binders and custom boxes, we knew we were the right people for the job.
Even though we didn’t get to go stay at Turtle Bay, we all felt a little more relaxed working on this one. And the project turned out great! Check out the custom half sheet binder and really cool sales box below, and read more about the project here!
