If you prefer to be a little informed before striking up a conversation, here is a summary of the different box ranges that you may see on some packaging company sites:
0100 Range – Rolls or sheets of corrugated cardboard
These are typically used to provide protection when products are stacked.
0200 Range – Slotted boxes
This is the basic delivery box, which is shipped flat packed and assembled on the packing line. Tape or glue strips are needed to form into a sealed box.
0300 Range – Telescopic boxes
Formed from two pieces, this is a box with a separate, removable lid; a shoebox is a familiar example.
0400 Range – Folded boxes and trays
These are formed from a single, hinged sheet of cardboard, which folds together. It can be a simple flat wrap or can include locking tabs, handles and die-cut panels.
0500 Range – Sliding boxes
A separate sleeve slides over a central box, a matchbox is an example of this drawer-like style.
0600 Range – Rigid boxes
In this instance, a rigid box has two separate ends, which are attached to the central panel with an overlaying flap. This strengthens the edges of the box, making it more rigid.
This is a slightly confusing term, as the term ‘rigid boxes’ is also used to describe the high-end laminated packaging which was the subject of a recent rigid boxes blog.
0700 – Ready glued boxes
These boxes are glued or stapled at the join. The base is designed to securely slot together to form a strong hold. When filled, the top can also slot together or it may require glue or tape to seal, depending on the design. It is a popular delivery box design and cardboard 6-bottle wine carriers also come within this range.
0900 – Internal cardboard sections
The inside of a box can be fitted with cardboard dividers, cardboard blocks and other features. These help to keep components apart, reduce the risk of damaged parts and improve product presentation.
