Stands out in the crowd. May have a tuck in base as shown (with or without a postal lock), an envelope base or a glued crash lock base. The angle of the taper is limited for machine gluing.
Many variations on this – may have one or two pockets each with one or two glue flaps. One or both may have capacity. Not all sizes or styles can be machine glued.
The bookflap style lid may be printed both sides just by printing one side of the sheet. Tricky to erect and only suitable for certain sizes but the results can be stunning.
The side walls may have slots to accept products such as blister cards for display. Can be used with a lid with an acetate window, so the buffers enable the full viewing of the product.
As TP224, but with the extension that adds rigidity and enables the inside to be fully printed by just printing one side of the sheet. Can be just used on the lid or on both the lid and base.
Box and lid with fold-over ends and sides, mitred in the corners. It costs more to make up than TP217 but is stronger and neater in appearance. The lid may be full or part depth and can include optional thumbholes.
Functional and cost effective. Requires no gluing and is easy to make up. Known as ‘FEFCO 0422’
Retailers are now requesting this but it does cost more to produce. There are a limited range of dimensions for which it is suitable.
Excellent ‘designer pack’, but stacking strength is not good. As a general rule the smaller dimension of the opening needs to be 50% or less than that of the larger to enable ease of erection.
Economical to produce as there is no gluing involved – blanks are supplied in the flat. Takes time to erect however and stacking strength is not great. Can be separate box and lid.
