Sorry to get all Buzzfeed headline on you, but some projects are so special you just have to share.
We worked with Q2 down in Austin, Texas. What resulted is kind of special!
It starts with a corrugated slipcase with another corrugate box inside. Both of these are printed, laminated with soft touch laminate with lines of spot UV.
When you pull out the inside box, you have a tray with a paperboard box resting inside. This custom box matches exactly with the corrugate from the printing to the soft touch lamination and the spot UV.
Under that box is a book. A present in a present.
But wait. you are not done.
Inside the paperboard box is a pocket folder with a box pocket. This folder acts like a four flap enclosure (yes, one of our sister companies is Archival Products and in preservation they use a lot of four flap enclosures). Open the custom pocket folder and find a brochure (whose main image peeks out at you from a custom die cut in the folder).
Scroll down and check out the great design. Wouldn’t you be happy to get this presentation?

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?
Looking for a sales box or marketing kit but not sure what you need?
You have a few choices and if you want to stick to recyclable materials the best are corrugated boxes or paperboard boxes. These both have advantages so if you need a custom marketing kit, sales box or sample presentation kit a quick read may be in order.
Lets break it down.
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.
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.
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:
These stocks print like a dream, so you have the same wide range of options from 1 color PMS to 4cp+ and spot varnishes.
Printing two sides is also not a problem, allowing your to have the inside of your box as well branded as the outside.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies:
Corporate Image has a wide range of sales box and paperboard box dies to choose from already, but if you have a need for custom windows or looks, you can work with our package designer to get what you need.
Marketing materials set an emotional tone for a company, balancing the need to stand out, make a statement and supporting a brand.
