Boxes and Cartons Printing

On this page you will find further information about our Box Printing and Carton printing. On the website you can choose from our range of ten standard Boxes. Please use the price calculator on the Box Prices page to work out your price.

Construction

Our boxes are die-cut and creased, then glued and delivered flat

Materials

Small boxes are printed onto 505mic Folding Box Board (FBB). Larger boxes are printed onto 200gsm gloss art and this is then laminated onto E-Flute board, which gives greater rigidity.

Box Liners

For additional rigidity and strength, box types B4, B5, B6, B7, B8 and B9 can be specified with a 2mm Fluted Liner, which runs around the largest box dimension.

Lamination

Boxes can be gloss or matt laminated. This is well worth the additional cost because it prevents cracking on the creases of the box.

Spot UV Varnishing

Box types B4, B5, B6, B7, B8 and B9 can be Spot UV varnished. Please contact us for a price.

Popular Box Shapes and Sizes

We have a range of different standing cutters for cutting and creasing our Presentation Folders. Each one has an B code to identify the shape e.g. B2. You can download templates for these boxes from the Templates heading on the menu bar at the top of the website.

Artwork and PDF requirements for Presentation Folders

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service of £20 plus VAT.
  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished job, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a "quiet area" to ensure nothing important is too near to the edge of the finished item; so please leave a 5mm inner margin for anything other than backgrounds
  • Supply files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • Image resolution should be 300dpi or more
  • Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes

If you would like to download a PDF template you can do so from the Templates page which is also accessible via the top menu bar.
