are some of the most common types of consumer packaging on the market. They are used in retail packaging to hold individual products, and they can also be
used to effectively display and promote products in order to generate impulse buying. Whether you have used folding cartons for your business for many
years or are considering them for your business for the first time, you should be aware of the many advantages that come with this packaging solution.
The paperboard that is used to create a folding carton comes in
a variety of weights, and this allows for the carton to remain structurally sound and to keep the contents secure. Additionally, these cartons can also be
made through the use of corrugated board, and this can provide for additional support needed to house a heavier product. These cartons are also ideal for
shipping containers that are branded.
Creativity and Flexibility
Folding cartons are engineered and designed, and they can be created into a variety of different styles. Each style can then be tailored to meet certain
specifications. Features like hanging tabs or windows can be added. If necessary, wet strength paperboard may be added to keep moisture from penetrating
into the board and causing curl, and other specifications can be added.
Most of the pulp that is used to create non-virgin paperboard has been manufactured from entirely recycled materials. In addition, the scraps that are left
over from the folding carton manufacturer and the created carton can also be recycled, which can minimize
potentially negative environmental impact. This creates a cyclical process that contributes to minimal landfill waste products.
Folding cartons also offer clean graphics. This can be done through the use of a four color process. The option also exists to print up to seven colors,
and this allows for a wide variety of product branding options. This results in crisp text and graphics that can be placed both outside and inside of the
folding carton. The colored graphic printing ability of folding cartons is unmatched to other styles of packaging, and this also allows for the folding
carton to serve as a key marketing device that can make your product stand out among the competition. The carton can also be given a matte or glossy look
during the printing process, and this can be done to protect graphics and text from damage or abrasions.
