Custom Corrugate and Paperboard Boxes

Should your Sales Boxes and Marketing Kits be corrugate boxes or paper board?

When you are looking for boxes for sales kits, information packets or sample marketing kits it helps to know more about your materials, possibilities and printing options.

The world of boxes is vast – do you need a corrugate box to help architectural samples or a heavy paper stock that can hold patient information kits or a bottle of perfume?

Printed corrugated boxes - Corporate Image

 First lets break it down.

Corrugate Boxes and Packaging

E-flute, single faced, double wall – all of these are corrugates and all of them have interesting properties and uses for your design projects.

The main thing you get from corrugates is strength.  If you need a sturdy box to hold samples or need to convey a greater sense of solidity with your brand, corrugates may be the way to go.

Customizing Corrugates:

Printing and more:

The best quality printing (4cp +) is done on a C1S (coated 1 side) sheet which is run through an offset press and then adhered to the corrugate.  There are also options of foil stamping and debossing and direct printing.

Die Cuts and Custom Dies

Corruagate cuts well, so the shape of your box, window cuts, custom closures and flaps are all possibilities.

Paperboard Boxes

Printed heavy paper stocks can be made into an amazing array of boxes for anything from patient information kits for healthcare to financial portfolio or organizational kits and more.

Customizing Paperboard Boxes:

The Corporate Image Difference

We specialize in first impressions

Corporate Image is in the business of creating good first impressions. One of our presentation packages, whether it’s a custom binder, folder or box speaks volumes about a company, product or service. The Corporate Image difference extends far beyond our printing ability. Nowhere is our attention to detail more evident than in the care and thought which have gone into the design and engineering of our basic styles. Each is designed to meet a specific presentation packaging need.

Should one of our basic styles not meet your presentation packaging needs, our internal package designer can help you create a custom binder, folder or box and send a mock-up. Whatever your presentation project, we’ll design a distinctive professional package. Also, we make your job easy! We’ll email a template into which you can drop your art and after we receive it, we’ll review it and send you a color proof to approve. When the job is finished, it is shipped fully assembled or flat if you wish to conserve valuable space.

We’re becoming a  leading source for quality presentation packaging. Our products and services set us apart from the rest.    Printing standards are very high, which is evident when you receive your job. We use offset presses that are dedicated to printing only covers, so our pressmen go the extra distance to get the color right. We’re in the business of creating good first impressions. And that’s the Corporate Image difference.

Yet they’re flexible enough to allow you to customize presentations and update information on the fly. Printed binders add dimension to your presentation, reinforcing your message and products in a memorable way. And they’re eco-friendly, unlike many vinyl binders that release hazardous chemicals into our environment. With durable hinged binders board, sturdy metal rings, cloth printed covers and your choice of protective lamination finishes, our printed binders leave a lasting impression — beautifully.

 

Pocket folders are the ideal multi-purpose tool when companies need to present an important message.

Pocket folders offer both flexibility and versatility with a complete range of styles, sizes and options like portfolio closures, expandable pockets, USB holders and glueless pockets that ship flat. With full color printing inside and out, a choice of lamination finishes and decorating options, the design possibilities are endless.

Custom boxes create an immediate hands-on experience and a WOW factor guaranteed to open doors. Our packaging options are designed to present a multi-level sales story in a professional, organized format. A sturdy build and beautiful four-color printing inside and out, work well to deliver brochures, samples, materials or gifts while providing premium real estate for presenting the brand.

The Best Sample Binders

When you want a sample binder or custom box to reflect your company image and products, you’ll want the best quality presentation possible. For 30 years, Corporate Image has been designing solutions to hold samples from carpet, tile and wood for flooring, to glass, sealants and other widely used materials in the building industry. Our binders and boxes can be configured in multiple ways to secure and display samples to make it easier for your audience to see and choose among your products. We have a package designer on staff to help you create the right solution for your project and if you want to see a mock-up, there is no extra charge – and it only takes 10 business days to produce your project after receiving proof approval. It’s all part of the package designed to make it easy to work with Corporate image and to help you be successful. We also keep the production process under one roof so it is more convenient to coordinate the project on your end.

If you want a product to reflect your company’s environmental perspective, we have a variety of recycled papers from which to choose and it can be certified by a leading organization for forest management.


Corporate Image’s Amazing New Lamination

Our new Natural Matte lamination is so subtle you can hardly see it. Made from polyproplene, a non-reflective film that minimizes color shift, it creates a unique, sophisticated look with a smooth, silky feel. Your 3 ring binder, tab divider, folder or custom box project will not only be protected, it will be far more earth friendly than ordinary vinyl bindes that are toxic to both the air and land.


Presentation Products for the Furniture Industry

The furniture business if a vast industry including nationally-recognized manufacturers, regional home furnishings retailers, national franchise organizations, and online home furnishings retailers with a diverse range of clients.  Clients want to know that they can count on the industry for quality and variety.  It is important to present the expertise that you bring to your client's business. 

When making presentations, show professionalism and quality with presentation materials by Corporate Image.  Your impression exhibits your confidence and knowledge while representing you and your firm or company.  We find that the furniture industry likes an easel binder, a three-part binder that easily displays information to others.  Corporate Image knows that living in the digital environment, more infmoration can be added to disc or USB drive.  To pass on the added information without using a tree to print the amount of materials, choose the eco-friendly presentation folder with a specialized space for a USB drive, and or any sized software disc, or accompany a custom folder or 3-ring binder with professional software packaging.  

In the office, keep an organized account of in depth analysis, data, trends, market share, and forecasts with Corporate Image custom binders and folders.  With a variety of sizes to choose from, also add a finger pull as a sleek customized design for ease of storage and access on the office shelf.  Tab dividers make a great custom addition that can organize each binder by personal divisions. 

Whether you're looking for something eco-friendly or just a beautiful custom design for you, your firm, or client, Corporate Image has you covered.  We have a reliable design department to support you with the ease of templates, mock-ups, and samples.


Corporate Image: Eco-friendly Custom Box on Smart Paper’s Genesis Paper

Corporate Image has searched out companies making sustainable papers to use in our custom eco-friendly products.  Smart Papers is another sustainable company that, as a green printer, Corporate Image likes to partner!  Located in Hamilton, Ohio- about 10 hours away from the Corporate Image location in the heart of the midwest, this company has been in business for over 110 years.   We choose to partner with them because, like us, they are dedicated to creating sustainable products using sustainable practices.

Smart Papers has made large strides toward greening their company and products.  They  strive to lessen landfill dependency by being one of the largest users of coated paper waste.  Over 20 years ago they produced the first 100% Recycled Premium Text and Cover paper brand.  They also use recycled fiber throughout the entire product line of fine papers and continually strive for green growth.  The company is growing greener all the time with Smart Paper’s 20 Year Green Performance, mapping the company standards on fiber, pulp, chemicals, solid waste and more, and their two current green goals for energy and water reduction.

Eco-friendly Custom Box:
Recently, New York State Energy Research & Development Authority, NYSERDA, approached Corporate Image to help create a beautiful box that met the State of New York’s eco standards, requiring state agencies to purchase 100 percent recycled paper.  Smart Paper’s Genesis Line was the way to go because the size of the box required a heavier weight stock paper. NYSERDA chose to use Genesis 160#  Double-thick Cover that is 100% post consumer waste recycled.   With all of Smart Paper’s eco-friendly options, clients are sure to find a paper that suites any project.

Presentation in a Box

Sales Boxes are designed to help you market your products and services by holding everything from brochures, loose sheets, tab dividers or nearly anything else you can imagine. People refer to them as Presentation Boxes, Sales Boxes, Welcome Kits, Tool Kits and Sales Totes. But whatever the name, they will keep your materials neatly organized and keep on selling your message. They’re the perfect solution to a wide range of presentation packaging needs. For example, colleges and universities use them for admission information; medical companies use them for patient or product information and manufacturing companies present samples in them. The possibilities are limitless.

Our boxes are printed directly onto 18-or 24-point card stock and can be finished in your choice of gloss, semi-gloss or natural matte lamination. We offer several flap styles and a variety of sizes. They can be customized to give the look of a tote or a briefcase by adding a plastic handle and a secure locking mechanism.
