Lightweight Folding Carton Packaging

Folding carton (also known as box board) is a low-weight solid board ideally suited to the packaging of lightweight products. We offer a range of folding carton styles such as boxes and trays, all using a variety of folding techniques. These can be manufactured flat or pre-glued for hand or machine-erect based on your requirements. The flexibility of folding carton allows you to design ‘curves’, creating innovatively shaped packs that can differentiate your product from the competition.

The shape, in combination with high quality print, creates an eye-catching pack to maximize both brand impact and sales. Window patches can also be added to enhance the pack appearance and offer consumers excellent visibility of the product inside. Folding carton packaging also offers environmental benefits, as the lightweight material allows cost to be taken out of the supply chain and is 100% recyclable.
