Custom Box Packaging Prototypes

Paperboard Boxes. These are typically used for food and other smaller consumer goods. Our product box mockups can also be made with windows, making them perfect for action figures, dolls, and other toys.

  • White. With white paperboard boxes (SBS, SUS), you can easily put custom artwork on all of your packaging. Utilizing the white board can cut costs as you do not have to print a white ink. SBS / SUS Stocks are great to get vibrant colors.
  • Natural Kraft (CCNB). Custom paperboard boxes with brown insides are typically used for cereals, protein bars, pastas, and other food products. The brown paperboard is also made from recycled material which has become a largely sought-after substrate in whole foods, organic, and healthy lifestyle packaging. This type of packaging is the epitome of eco-friendliness.

Corrugated Boxes. These strong boxes are used for heavy-duty products, such as frying pans and coffee makers. The pleated material is made up of three separate layers of thick paperboard – featuring two flat liners on the outside with a fluted material in the middle. This type of package is typically crush proof, and the majority of shipping boxes are even using this material to protect your products inside.

Rigid Boxes. This type of box is often associated with luxury retail items. Made of an extremely condensed paperboard, it is quite durable yet still fairly lightweight. It is easy to incorporate a book flap or magnetic closure, in addition to compartments, domes, and other premium features on this type of prototype box packaging.

Straight Tuck

Clean, compact, and straight to the point.
Both upper and lower flaps are connected to the main panel and open in the same direction creating a refined front panel display area great for advertising your product. Straight tucks are known for compact storage, quick loading and easy assembly. If you’re looking for a popular choice among most retail displays, food, beverage and personal care go for the straight tuck.

Reverse Tuck

If you’re looking for a more cost-effective option than a straight tuck and you’re willing to stretch on the overall aesthetics, then reverse tuck is what you want. Reverse tucks feature a closing panel attached to the back of the box with the other connected to the front causing a less refined shape. However, reverse tucks don’t require tape so they can be manually or automatically assembled, are easier to open for the consumer and ship/store flat. Reverse tucks are go-to’s for small parts, samples and other lightweight products.

POS /POP Displays

Point of Sale & Point of Purchase displays are competitive box structures designed to initiate impulse purchases, highlight your product, and maximize retail space. POS displays are placed near cash registers providing last minute visual exposure where you can incorporate promotions and encourage your consumer to take advantage of the deal. These are best for convenience goods, lighters, novelty products, candy, gum, souvenirs, and bulk sold items. A few common POP displays are Endcap Displays, Standees and Pallet displays and are placed where consumers are making purchasing decisions- all throughout the store. These promote new products or sales, elevate brand exposure, communicate brand image, and increase consumer product interaction. POP and POS displays are brand billboards that give you a creative and competitive edge, beneficial to all industries.
