Carton Styles & Sizes
To help get you started with your Custom Carton enquiry, our standard Carton Styles can be detailed as follows…
RSC – Regular Slotted CartonThese are the most common type of carton. They are easy to erect and can be closed by taping or gluing the top and base flaps. Flaps meet in the centre top and bottom.
FOLF – Full Overlapping FlapThese cartons are similar to the RSC except they have flaps on the top and base that fold right across the width, giving two full layers of board for extra strength. [divider_flat]
5 Panel FolderCreased cardboard with 5-panels that wrap around a product and are taped closed. The flaps on the end fold in, providing stacking strength and protection for long articles. The 5 Panel Folder is particularly useful for packaging long and narrow products.
Box and separate lidThe larger versions of box and lid come flat packed and require gluing by the client. Die cut box and lids are available in smaller sizes. These are self-erecting, requiring no glue or staples. [divider_flat]
And a note on sizing…
When quoting we work to the internal dimensions of the box measured in millimetres.
Length (L) x Width (W) x Height (H)
- Length – The length is the longest side
- Width – The width is the shortest side
- Height – The height is from the base to the top
