Flap cartons are the most frequently selected type of box. The design of this type of packaging is set out in the FEFCO 0201 international catalogues. Due to the lack of die-cutting design and production, the cost of producing flap cartons is lower, compared to competing shipping products. In order to assemble flap cartons, it will be necessary to obtain adhesive tape.
What are flap boxes used for?
Flap cartons are the most commonly used packaging in all industries, for all products, whether for courier or palletization. They are the cheapest cardboard packaging available on the market. Their use ensures the immobilization of items during transport. It guarantees the possibility of using corners to protect and strengthen the pallet of goods during transport. At Naturepak, we focus on the availability of flap boxes in traditional and non-standard sizes to fit, for example, Euro pallets. For the production of flap boxes, B, C, E, BE, BC waves are most commonly used. These differ in the frequency of the wave in the middle of the cardboard and in the height of the wave.
Printed flap packaging
Choosing large-size flap packaging provides a large area of its walls, which can be used at the stage of creating a visual identity that increases brand awareness among customers. At Naturepak, we will carry out any printing on flap boxes regardless of the size of packaging you choose to send. Take advantage of this option to put your company logo, contact details, QR code or company slogans on your boxes.
