Walk into any Wal-Mart, Costco, or Target and look around. You will find printed chipboard boxes everywhere. Chances are, some of those chipboard folding cartons were designed right here in North County San Diego at Peek Packaging. There are four different aspects to a chipboard box: material, thickness, style, and printing.
Custom tuck top auto bottom is one of the more popular styles of chipboard boxes because it allows for easy custom printing and quick assembly on the production line. Just like the name says, the top of the chipboard box tucks in and the bottom is automatically popped into place quickly and easily. Common uses are custom food packaging, custom retail packaging, custom biotech packaging, custom coffee packaging, custom tea packaging, and custom sporting goods packaging.
Custom same side tuck end box is glued with each end folding and locking on the same side. The STE can give you a better graphic presentation if the tucks are on the back of the custom box. A fifth panel can be added for hanging on pegs and giving additional space for graphics. Common packaging uses for this chipboard box include custom vitamin packaging, custom pharmaceutical packaging, custom perfume boxes, custom soap boxes, and custom food packaging.
Custom rolled end tuck top is an unglued box that needs to be folded when assembled. The sides are 3 layers of custom chipboard for added strength and the top opens and closes with a tuck to the inside of the box. Common uses for this custom chipboard box are custom vitamin packaging, custom retail packaging, custom coffee packaging, custom tea packaging, Costco packaging, and custom pharmaceutical packaging.
Same as a STE but the custom reverse tuck end ends tuck and lock on opposite panels. The custom RTE is a more cost effective chipboard box than an custom STE due to the fact that you can have more boxes print on a sheet. Custom packaging uses for this chipboard box include custom vitamin packaging, custom pharmaceutical packaging, custom candy packaging, custom perfume boxes, custom soap boxes and custom software packaging.
Same as the standard RTE but the custom hang panel provides more space for advertising as well as a hole which can be used for hanging the product from pegs and clip strips. Custom packaging uses for this chipboard box include custom vitamin packaging, custom pharmaceutical packaging, custom software packaging, and custom food packaging.
