With most other types of packaging, you must assemble or fold the box prior to placing your product inside. Rigid Setup Boxes arrive already formed so there is no additional labor or equipment needed to use the packaging.

Simply place your product inside and close the box!

Rigid Box Design

/Year
Rigid Setup Boxes are constructed by cutting and forming a chipboard sheet (sometimes referred to as greyboard sheet), and then wrapping that formed structure with a printed sheet of paper.

The result is a robust box with high-end graphics that offers a great presentation and frustration free opening.

Since the box or tray structure is wrapped with a flat printed sheet, all embellishments and capabilities offered by the print industry can also be incorporated into your rigid box.

Want to take your rigid box to the next level? Consider adding lamination to the flat sheet prior to wrapping! Lamination can give your box unique properties such as soft-touch feel, high gloss look, or scuff proof durability.

Rigid boxes can be constructed in many different ways, but they generally consist of two parts: a lid and base. However, the shape, size and function of rigid boxes can vary greatly depending on the product and purpose of the packaging. The base and lid can also be hinged together to give your packaging a different feel and opening experience.

FAQ's

Rigid boxes are much stronger than folding cartons and are typically four times thicker. Depending on your product and the packaging application, rigid boxes are typically strong enough to survive parcel shipment. Most companies still elect to put the rigid box inside of a shipping bag or over-pack box to protect the graphics.

Full telescope rigid boxes are very common. Telescope refers to the way in which the rigid box is assembled. The lid of the box “telescopes” over the base of the box.

Full telescope means the lid fully telescopes the base. A thumb notch can be added to the lid to make opening the box easier.

When opened, the lid detaches from the base leaving you with two components.

This is the reason this style of rigid box also falls under the category of 2-Piece Rigid Box.

Partial telescope rigid boxes are similar to full telescope rigid boxes. The difference: the lid for the partial telescope rigid box only “telescopes” over part of the base of the box.

A thumb notch is less common in this style of box since its design makes it naturally easier to open. When opened, the lid detaches from the base leaving you with two components.

This is the reason this style of rigid box also falls under the category of 2-Piece Rigid Box.

Shoulder rigid boxes are a type of partial telescope rigid box. An additional tray is glued to the inside of the base that protrudes up past the top of the base. The protrusion creates a “neck” and the top edge of the base creates a “shoulder”.

The additional tray can also be placed inside of the lid to give the box a different look while keeping the function the same.

The neck can be extended so that it is visible even when the box is closed. This is often referred to as a “neck reveal” and can give the packaging a unique presentation and branding opportunity since the neck can be printed with the same graphics as the box.

Both of these designs consist of 3 components, and therefore falls under the packaging category of a 3-Piece Rigid Box.

Slipcase is the term used to describe a rigid base tray that slides into a sleeve or another rigid tray that is oriented differently. The result is a box that opens like a drawer.

This type of rigid box can give the custom a unique unboxing experience. The slipcase can also be used to store the product long-term as they are typically very durable and easy to open / close.

Hinged rigid boxes have the lid and base of the rigid box hinged together.

The construction consists of a rigid base tray with a flat chipboard sheet attached to the back of the tray. This style is also referred to as a cigar box.

In addition to packaging, this style of rigid box is often used for marketing and sales kits. The inside of the lid can be printed providing marketing real estate or additional space to tell your story.

Hinged binder book boxes are comprised of two components: a book cover and a rigid tray.

The rigid tray is glued to the book cover, which gives the box a book / binder look. The spine of the book cover can be attached to the tray or left unattached depending on the desired presentation and function of the packaging.

In addition to packaging, this style of rigid box is often used for marketing and sales kits. The inside of the lid can be printed providing marketing real estate or additional space to tell your story.
