Types of Rigid Boxes:
Rigid boxes refer to premium finished thick cardboard boxes. Rigid packaging significantly enhances the unboxing experience for your customers through the use of a delicate velvet/silk clothing coating to give your packaging a luxurious feel. Rigid boxes are also sturdier and thus offer a greater degree of protection for the enclosed products.
While there are many different types of rigid boxes, some of the more commonly used ones are:
Levels of Packaging:
Packaging is a core part of the success of many products. In order to design the right type of packaging, it is important to identify suitable materials and finishes that align with the function that the particular packaging project is trying to accomplish. The first step in identifying ideal materials and finishes is to decide on the level of packaging that you are trying to design. The three levels of packaging that are commonly used are:
Types of Corrugated Fluting:
Fluting refers to the wave-like part of a corrugated sheet or box that provides stacking strength and durability. Different types of fluting can be described in terms of the number of flutes per linear foot and the height of the flute itself. Corrugated sheets manufactured using different fluting types are commonly referred to as:
- A Flute
- B Flute
- C Flute
- E Flute
- F Flute
In order to assure adequate levels of strength and durability for a specific task, it is imperative that appropriate types of corrugated sheets are used when manufacturing different types of corrugated packaging.
Corrugated Board Types:
Custom product and shipping boxes manufactured using corrugated paperboard are commonly referred to as corrugated boxes. Corrugated paperboard is composed of rows of paper columns that are commonly referred to as fluting. The fluting layer contains air pockets that provide additional protective cushioning for any packaged products. The fluting layer is combined with a paper liner layer to create the corrugated paperboard material. The combination of the fluting and the liner layers makes corrugated board significantly stronger than ordinary cardboard.
Common types of corrugation, providing varying degrees of protective capability, are referred to as:
- Single Face Board
- Single Wall Board
- Double Wall Board
- Triple Wall Board
