BENEFITS OF RIGID BOXES
Thanks to their construction, rigid boxes are extremely stable.
And when recycled greyboard is covered with FSC®-certified paper, they are sustainable too.

Construction

Three basic designs are most commonly used: the flip-top box, lidded box and drawer box. The biggest advantage of the flip-top box is its foldability: this allows it to be stored and shipped flat when empty, saving space, cost and transport emissions.

Cover material

Art paper is the most popular for detailed printing. Textured or special effect papers can also be used, as can textiles or leather. Alternative plant-based papers and natural-look finishes can help emphasise the sustainability of gift box packaging to consumers.

Printing & Finishing

Classic offset printing allows sophisticated graphics, but it’s the finishing options that truly elevate a rigid box. A combination of gloss and matt finish with contrasting spot UV varnish can be particularly effective. Finishes such as deep embossing help to make prestige packaging even more inviting to touch, while hot or cold foil stamping delivers added elegance.

Inserts

Depending on the product, budget and sustainability, different inserts are available for holding products securely inside a rigid box. Choices include cardboard or fibre-moulded, thermo-formed, foam or cork inserts.

Closures

Magnetic clasp, press stud, tuck-in flap, band or Velcro fastener: there are plenty of secure closures that work well with this type of gift box packaging. Ribbons and loops allow for easy opening and can add a splash of colour for a more flamboyant touch.

Creation

To make a rigid box, the greyboard is grooved so it folds into the prescribed box shape, which is held in place by the cover. This allows the box edges to be soft and rounded, or clean and sharp.
