Luxury Folding Carton Packaging

Folding box board packaging is an extremely cost effective way to package and protect a wide variety of products. Folding carton boxes also allow for unique design and product presentation opportunities to allow for more creative brand touch points with prospective customers. 

We have produced luxury product packaging for some of the world’s best-known brands, including printed carton boxes for retail products and custom folding cartons for promotional use.

We have an established global manufacturing base so we can supply folding box board packaging in any shape, size or form, with or without inserts, fitments and acetate windows. An example of this is our A-Frame folding carton packaging which created an interestingly different way to present men’s fragrances.

The folding carton packaging case studies below are examples of printed cartons and other folding box board packaging examples that we have produced for our clients.

What Is a Folding Box Board?

Folding box board (FBB) is a low-density paperboard packaging that is easy to laminate, emboss, laser-cut and print onto. Stiff and foldable, its flexibility makes it a popular choice in a whole host of consumer goods industries including foodstuffs, cosmetics, medicines, stationery, homeware and jewellery to name a few. One of the many advantages of folding box board is the huge number of ways they can be folded to construct clever custom folding cartons.

Also known as folding carton packaging, folding boxboard is best suited to lightweight items or used as the outer casing to a sturdier boxed product. Printed folding box board cartons are easily paired 

Features of Folding Box Board 

Folding carton packaging is the smart choice for presenting products to today’s consumer market. A range of features makes Maxipos tried-and-tested folding boxboard uniquely competitive. And, as customers increasingly opt for plastic-free options, FBB is an ever more popular packaging choice.

Eco-friendly

Fully recyclable eco packaging means excellent presentation without contributing to landfill. We are happy to source reclaimed wood pulp boxboard for an even more environmentally sustainable option.

Adaptable

It is simple to introduce an acetate window to show off a part or the whole of the product while keeping it safe from scratches and damage. We are experienced in creating a range of three-dimensional shapes for custom folding cartons – Christmas crackers, pillow boxes, cubes, pyramids and more.

What are Folding Cartons Made From? 

Folding box board is a low grammage multiply paperboard made up of at least three layers. The central layer is either mechanical or thermomechanical pulp – this is what makes FBB uniquely lighter weight and less resource-intensive than its alternatives. Sandwiched on either side of the central core are two layers of bleached chemical pulp. 

Thanks to its unprecedented smoothness, folding box cartons are the prime option for high-quality printing. An added benefit, therefore, is the chance to achieve light-catching shiny packaging for maximum appeal. Additionally, the even consistency of folding box board surfaces allows for the fail-safe application of hot or cold foil.

Its multiple environmental benefits include easy recycling and responsible sourcing.

Types of Folding Carton Boxes We Offer

Endlessly adaptable, folding boxboard comes in a range of styles according to client specifications. If you are uncertain as to exactly which design best suits your products, our capable advisors will walk you through some options and send prototypes at your convenience.

Types of packaging in this range include printed carton boxes and custom folding cartons. One of our many successful projects is a bespoke gold foil slipcase and drawer design for Blink Brow Bar’s Christmas promotion. Small, accurately designed rectangular cartons complete with ribbon tab went down a treat with the beauty brand’s growing customer base.

Another example is the curved A-frame FBB carton with a crash-lock glued base and printed artwork produced by Maxipos for L’Occitane. This design achieved the dual goals of competitive pricing plus a uniquely appealing look.

How Can Luxury Folding Carton Packaging Benefit Your Business? 

Quality manufacture and bespoke design are the two pillars on which our customer satisfaction is built. Maxipos guarantees 100% client satisfaction and we would love to explore design options for luxury folding carton packaging to promote your next product launch. 

Attractive folding carton boxes can increase brand awareness and strengthen loyalty in a variety of ways. For instance, loose company merchandise materials are easily lost or damaged. Yet a luxury folding carton can redouble your marketing efforts and extend the reach of a promotional campaign; prospective customers spend longer engaging with your brand as they hold, unfold and reveal a concealed surprise within a folding boxboard container. After all, who can resist opening a boxed gift?

Another considerable advantage to luxury FBB is decreased transportation costs arising from its lightweight yet durable material. Regardless of company size or the scope of your project, our teams are highly experienced at curating designs suited to specific briefs and budgets.
