1. What are boxes with carrying handle?

Carry-handle boxes or also called lunch boxes, trade fair cases, cardboard cases or cardboard boxes with carry handles are elegant, high-quality and at the same time stable packaging solutions for your products. This type of box can be used in many ways. For example, it is ideal for on the road, because with its handy handle it functions as a cardboard case for customer gifts, advertising materials, business reports, lunch boxes, etc. The cardboard box with handle stands out positively and leaves plenty of room for creativity. With an individual design, attention can be drawn specifically to the product or the company.
Like all our folding boxes, we offer our folding boxes with handle in many different materials. Every material that is available in our calculator can be printed and finished as desired. Our large material portfolio includes carry-handle boxes made of white cardboard in various grammages. White cardboard can be printed freely and allows any colour variety to shine. Do you prefer a more natural, somewhat simpler design for your carry-handle boxes? e offer our folding box with handle in brown as well as black natural cardboard. Both the black and the brown natural cardboard can, of course, also be printed and finished.

2. How are carry handle boxes constructed?

The sturdy cardboard box with carrying handle comes in three variations.

  • With insertable base: The plug-in bottom is characterised by its robustness and good stability. It consists of one tab on each of the four sides of the base opening. These tabs hook into each other as they are folded inwards, forming a stable base.
  • With automatic bottom: The carry handle box with automatic bottom or also called lightning bottom or folding bottom is glued to the bottom closure and is therefore very stable. The folding box opens automatically when erected and thus enables quick filling.
  • With tuck-in flap: The carry-handle box is quickly and easily closed at the bottom opening with a tuck-in flap. The carry-handle box with tuck-in flap is suitable for lighter contents.

The closure technique for all variations consists of elongated carry handle flaps that are folded towards each other to close the opening. The secure closure is then provided when the side flaps, which have a slot, are slipped over the carry handle flaps.
All three variants are resealable and therefore intended for reuse.

Our cardboard cases are a very sturdy and particularly high-quality type of folding box, which is made of high-quality cardboard and is attractively printed and can be finished with various techniques. The packaging design of the folding box with handle offers a high attractiveness factor, which is why it is a popular packaging as an advertising medium or for promotional campaigns.

4. How are carry-handle boxes printed and finished?

High-quality printing, matched to the cardboard, is hugely important for any folding box. Our high-quality customised cardboard boxes are printed using digital offset printing. This technology has several advantages over offset printing:

  • the immediate drying enables seamless further processing
  • particularly favourable in small and medium runs
  • individual printing is possible
  • high print quality in a short time
  • Use of different print substrates (paper, foils, SK material) without changeover or special inks

In addition to the printing of the cardboard cases, the finishing of the boxes, which is tailored to the purpose, also plays a role. As a professional folding box manufacturer, we offer a wide range of finishes.

Finishes can be selected directly in the online calculator:

  • Dispersion coating (matt/ glossy)
  • Protective laminate (matt/ glossy)
  • Shape die-cutting
  • Blind-friendly tactile warning triangles

Other optional finishes for our carton with carry handle are:

  • Blind embossing
  • Cellophaning or laminating
  • Hot foil stamping (gloss and matt effect - gold/silver)
  • Die cutting and creasing
  • UV coating (high-gloss, full-surface, digital)
