Everything we produce is bespoke

Whilst much of what we manufacture follows the normal tried and tested FEFCO carton styles, we are adept at creating innovative packaging concepts to enhance presentation or pack complex products. Talk to us about your project – we’d love to help.

tapered carton

Tuck-in top cartons

This can be supplied assembled or unassembled. Buffered sides and ends can be considered when extra protection is require.
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.
The 4 flaps may meet or overlap. Unless taping is acceptable, should only be used if automatic packing machinery is available, else a tuck in end carton is better.
This stronger reinforced base may be ‘mixed and matched’ with different tops. However, it is more expensive to produce than a ‘standard’ crash lock base.
This format keeps the front panel neat. When a postal lock is used as shown it is hidden at the back of the carton.
Fully automatic base make up when erected. May be produced in cartonboard, micro flute, e flute, litho laminated grades and according to dimensions even b flute.
Also known as FEFCO 0215. It provides a strong interlocked base and is not as costly as a crash lock but doesn’t automatically assemble like a crash lock.
This is necessary on very thin cartons to enable gluing. The seam may be positioned off centre.
One of the most popular carton styles May be economically interlocked Also known as ‘RTIE’ and ‘FEFCO 0211’

Cartons with headers

Retailers are now requesting this but it does cost more to produce. There are a limited range of dimensions for which it is suitable.
All the advantages of a glued crash lock base with a hanging panel for display. Shown with an acetate window on the front panel.

Cartons with lids

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.
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.
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.
Quick to erect. The front flap normally tucks in. An option is to apply peel and seal tape so it may be stuck on the outside if a tamper evident pack is required.
An economical blank which is viable only for large quantities. It is often used for printers ream boxes and ay be produced to collapse flat either ‘infold’ or ‘outfold’
May be referred to as a ‘shirt box’ The lid can be full or part depth. The tray may be used with an acetate lid or with a sleeve to produce a ‘shell and slide’

Cartons with carry handle

An alternative use for this style is to place a euroslot instead of a handle hole in the top and you have a central header.

This version of a carry pack is more suited to certain dimensions. Has the advantage that the handle will fold flat for bulk packing.

Functional and cost effective. Requires no gluing and is easy to make up. Known as ‘FEFCO 0422’

Folders, Wallets, Pillow Packs



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.
