Box Makers – Custom Box Quote
A wide variety of box styles can be made at Makkipak. Made to measure boxes reduces packaging material and will enhance your green image. Here is a list of the most popular conventional (no tooling required) and die cut (tooling required) styles available
Conventional Case Styles - In most cases no tooling is required
Similar to 0201, but flaps at 1 end only. Can be supplied with a glued or stitched join. When inverted it can be used as a “tea-cosy” style case over a pallet.
The outer flaps on both ends fully overlap. This style is useful when the breadth dimension is small. Can be supplied with a glued or stitched join.
Box and Lid with the glue/stitch flaps on the same side. The lid can be full depth or less, as specified. Normally supplied flat for self-assembly but can be supplied assembled if required.
Unassembled box and lid. The lid can be full depth or less, as specified. Normally supplied flat and will need to be glued, taped or stitched. We can also supply assembled.
Telescopic box and lid for use where the length and breadth are constant but where the height varies. See style 0321 in the die-cut section for a die cut alternative.
Commonly called a 5-panel wrap. This style lends itself to packing large flat items, such as panels, printed boards etc. On this style the side panels overlap, but the minimum height we can manufacture without die-cutting is 80mm. See also style 0411.
Commonly called a 5-Panel Wrap and useful for packing large flat items such as wooden panels or printed boards etc. . On this style the join is down the centre of the case so there is no minimum height.
Die Cut Case Styles - Tooling required for non stock items
Commonly called an Opposite Tuck Carton, because the flaps tuck in on opposite sides. Normally supplied glued.
This style has a tuck-in top and an envelope-tuck base. The base locks together without glueing or taping. Other variations of top flap arrangements are available.
A Telescopic Box and Lid with self-locking end panels. This is a very economical style as no glueing is required by the manufacturer.
A simple cruciform pack for books and printed matter. On this style the outer flaps meet and there is a gap between the inner flaps, but other variants are available e.g all flaps meet, or outer flaps overlap etc.
Another variant of the cruciform pack, this time with a rolled buffer on the ends for maximum protection. Another variant of this is Style 0400 (not illustrated) which uses less board.
Self-locking side panels and a tuck-in top make this a popular style for shoes etc. A locking tab can be added if required.
0422 / 0423
A die-cut Tray, with self locking end flaps. Also available with the self locking flaps on the long edge (Style 0423) . Both these styles can be used as a Pallet Tray.
This style makes a very rigid pallet tray having a double thickness of board all around the perimeter and 3 thicknesses in the corners.
Sometimes called a Toleman Wrap this is an ingenious design for packing books. The single piece of board twists through 90 degrees to form a three-dimensional wrap. Additional creases can be added to give a multi-depth pack. Closure is by a locking tab as illustrated or by taping. A self-seal closure can also be incorporated, subject to quantity.
