What you need to know about bespoke....

   

Box Style

Their are many different styles of carton, ranging from a standard 0201 to a more complex die-cut style such as 0426. When making your bespoke carton, the first step is to decide which style of box you will need.

Board Grade Fluting

When dealing with different types and styles of corrugated board, we often refer to its 'flute' or 'flutes'.

E Flute Thickness approx 2mm

-superior printed surface and work best for small die cut boxes and shelf ready packages that demand high quality print.

It is often used as a replacement for carton board packs.

 

B Flute Thickness approx 3mm

- the most common grade used for corrugated packaging. Most of what is seen on the shelves of supermarkets would be produced from this grade of board and is used from transit packaging for lighter goods through to display and shelf ready boxes and trays,

 

C Flute Thickness approx 4mm

- used as a performance alternative to B Flute. Due to the increased thickness it gives a higher stacking strength. This type of flute is slowly being phased out and being replaced by double wall BE flutes. C flute has a reduced print quality due to the size of the flute.

 

BE Flute Thickness approx 5mm

- becoming the preferred alternative to heavy C flute. It has the advantages of superior stacking strength to C flute with a printing surface associated with B flute. It is often used in the produce industry where it is made into trays that are used for fresh fruit and vegetables.

 

BC Flute Thickness approx 7mm

- is the thickness of conventional board grades. Stronger than a single wall structure, double wall enables heavier objects to be shipped and should be used when a stronger box or extra padding is needed and is excellent for heavier items. Often this flute is used for transit packaging on heavy electrical goods. 

Board Strengths

It is important to consider the weight of your item. When choosing your box, the right board grade should be considered. Please see a rough guide on board grades and their weight capabilities (please note this is a guide only).

Sizing

When sizing a bespoke carton, all we need to know is the internal carton size, or the external product size in mm. (length x width x height)

Printing

For your bespoke carton it is always nice for the final finish to show off your brands logo. This is a great way to advertise your business at a very low cost. Providing us with your logo, we can print up to two colours, making your carton stand out.
