Box Styles

Five Panel Folder

A single cut and scored piece features a fifth panel used as the closing flap, completely
covering a side panel. The closed box has several layers of combined board on each end,
providing stacking strength and protection for long articles of small diameter which
might be damaged, or damage the box, if pushed through the ends.

Regular Slotted Cartons (RSC)

All flaps have the same length and the two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one-half the container's width, so that they meet at the center of the box when folded.

Full Overlap Carton (FOL)

All flaps have the same length (the width of the box). When closed, the outer flaps come within one inch of complete overlap. This style is especially resistant to rough handling. Stacked on its bottom panel, the overlapping flaps provide added cushioning. Stacked on its side, the extra thickness provides added stacking strength.

Printing
Printing on corrugated is an important feature in packaging design.  There are a variety of different ways to apply graphics to corrugated board.  We offer direct flexographic print.

Flexography
Flexible printing plates are mounted to a cylinder and pick up a fast drying water based ink from an anilox cylinder that is metered by a rubber roll or doctor blade system. Sheets are fed through the cylinders and graphics are transferred to the corrugated board. This is also known as direct print. There are a number of machinery alternatives available to converters and every converter is equipped a little differently. Flexography is also used in preprint applications where the printing is applied to the outside liner prior to being converted into a corrugated sheet. This process offers printing advantages but requires certain levels of volume before it can be considered an option.

Structure (flutes)

Corrugated sheets are made up paper and starch. The fluted medium is bonded to the liners with a starch adhesive. Once bonded the combined board resists bending. The flutes provide cushioning when pressure is applied from the sides and when placed on end they form rigid columns capable of supporting a great deal of weight.

The most commonly used flutes are C and B flute. Generally, larger flutes offer greater vertical compression strength and cushioning. Smaller flutes offer printability advantages as well as structural advantages for retail packaging.

Types of Corrugated Fluting
We offer double wall and single wall fluting

Singlewall:
The corrugated medium is glued between two sheets of linerboard.

Doublewall:
Three sheets of linerboard with two mediums in between
