We have the answers to your questions

What type of box is right for me?

We can work it out together. Our selection is enormous, and can be finely coordinated, starting with the product characteristics: size, format, weight, special features. It is then clarified where the packaging will eventually be used. Further options are then considered – finishing, patched window, inlay etc. With this info, our development department creates a packaging solution perfectly tailored to suit your needs.


Solid cardboard or corrugated cardboard?

It depends ... It is important to clarify: Where will the packaged product be used? What does the packaging weigh? How will the product be transported in the box? Is extra protection needed – for transport or for a particularly fragile product? In the latter case, laminated corrugated cardboard is the right choice. Standard packaging for the point of sale is made from solid cardboard.


How many cardboard packages should I order?

Things get interesting at 1,000 or more. Fundamentally, one-off costs are incurred in the development and manufacture of any packaging, for example for the data handling or tools. Accordingly, the unit prices for very small quantities are high. The larger the print run, the lower the unit price. As a rule of thumb, orders should therefore be for at least 1,000 units.
