The packaging solution for light products
Folding boxes with tuck-in flap are probably the best-known representatives of box packaging and printed packaging. Today, they are used in almost every industry and for all kinds of products, also together with labels. They are particularly suitable as packaging for light and medium-weight products.
Versatility for many industries
Thanks to the wide range of options in terms of material, printing and design, folding cartons with tuck flap can be found in many variants and industries. They often serve as visually appealing secondary packaging.
The advantages of folding boxes at a glance
The structure of folding boxes with tuck-in flap
The structure of folding cartons with tuck-in flap is extremely simple: they consist of a body which is glued at points on the long side with an adhesive flap. By then folding in two dust flaps and a tuck-in flap, the box can finally be securely closed at its top and bottom.
The tuck-in flaps (1) hold the lids in place when closed, preventing them from opening by themselves, and also make the boxes resealable.
The dust flaps (2) are folded under the lids and thus prevent foreign bodies such as dust and dirt from entering the box interior through side slits.
The glue tab (3) is glued to the opposite side. This forms the flat cardboard into a three-dimensional object with a bottom and lid opening.
There are four designs of folding boxes with tuck flap available at Labelprint24, each of which is differentiated by the positioning of its flaps.
From good protections to marketing
The primary and most important function of packaging is always to keep the contained product safe and intact until it reaches its destination, the end consumer. On the way there, however, packaging takes on several other important tasks. For example, they serve as information carriers and brand ambassadors.
Protection from external influences
Folding boxes effectively protect the packaged product from external influences such as dust, moisture and UV rays. During transportation, the cardboard walls also protect against physical impact and prevent bruising and scratching.
Transport, storage & presentation
Thanks to the practical cuboid shape, the folding boxes are excellently stackable, which makes transport and storage efficient, as well as good presentation on the sales shelves.
The six exterior panels provide enough space to accommodate all essential product information, such as mandatory food and drug labels.
Whether on the outside, inside or on the flaps - our folding boxes can be printed over the entire surface and individually. This opens countless possibilities for creative designs with an effective element of surprise - for example, a colourful interior print with a personal thank-you note to the customer.

- Width: 15 to 250 mm
- Height: 30 to 400
- Glue tab: 8 to 25 mm
- Adhesive flap: 8 to 25 mm
Tip: To ensure that the boxes later offer enough space for your contents, the inside dimension should always be about two millimetres more than the product dimensions.
The look and feel of a package make a significant contribution to the positive perception of your product. For the necessary finishing touches, you can choose from various finishing options in our configurator:
- Protective laminate: matt, glossy or soft touch
- Protective varnish: matte or glossy and with or without cut out

- Braille and tactile warning triangles
Other finishes are available on request:

At Labelprint24, we offer offset printing, flexographic printing, screen printing, gravure printing and modern digital printing to best suit your needs and design ideas - all of which produce a high-quality printed image.
Which printing technique is the best choice in your case depends largely on whether you want varying print data(these can only be implemented using digital printing) and on the run size(for large quantities, offset printing, flexographic printing or gravure printing is more cost-efficient).
