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.

  • Food

    such as tea bags and spices

  • Cosmetics

    such as creams, lipsticks and perfumes

  • Electronics

    such as computer and smartphone accessories

  • Industrial products

    such as small components and illuminates

  • Pharmaceuticals

    such as ointments, gels and tablets

Important:
 The load-bearing capacity of folding cartons with tuck-in flap is limited. For products with a high weight (such as filled bottles and particularly heavy jars), folding cartons with tuck-in bottoms or folding cartons with automatic bottoms are a more robust and secure packaging alternative.

The advantages of folding boxes at a glance

  • fully printable

    maximum surface for information, design and advertising messages

  • easy to handle

    particularly easy to open, fill, set up and close

  • stackable

    practical format for transport, storage and presentation of goods

  • made to measure

    configuration accurate to the millimetre for customized packaging

  • many design options

    full-surface printing, transparent viewing windows and various finishes

Note:
 Our folding boxes with tuck-in flap are foldable and are delivered in a flat, i.e. folded state. This makes them particularly space- and resource-saving during transport and storage - and they can be set up as required.

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.

Tab functions

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.

Variants

There are four designs of folding boxes with tuck flap available at Labelprint24, each of which is differentiated by the positioning of its flaps.

Tip:
Folding boxes with tuck-in and security flap represent a special form. Here, the tuck-in flap of the lid is provided with a slot through which a small security flap is inserted. This improves the grip of the lid - and visually, this closure device also makes a very noble impression.

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.

Information

The six exterior panels provide enough space to accommodate all essential product information, such as mandatory food and drug labels. 

Marketing

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.

Folding boxes with tuck flap from Labelprint24 - completely made to measure and desire

For us at Labelprint24, the perfect folding carton certainly exists - and it will match your exact specifications. That's why our online configurator offers you comprehensive options for designing your individual dream packaging:

Materials

At Labelptint24 we offer you a wide range of cardboard types with different colours, thicknesses and grammages:  

  • standard white cardboard
  • bright white cardboard(coated on both sides)
  • colourful cardboard(brown, light brown, black)
  • thick cardboard(high grammage & thickness)
  • recycled, natural and grass cardboard

The material thickness varies between 0.315 and 0.6 millimetres, depending on the type of cardboard. In terms of grammages, our offer ranges from 215 to 500 grams per square meter.

Free formats

Precisely fitting folding boxes require customized production. Regarding the box format, our configurator box format therefore gives you a free hand. Technically solvable are formats within the following values: 

  • Length:15 to 350 mm
  • 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.

Finishes

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
  • Form punching and transparent viewing windows
  • Braille and tactile warning triangles

Other finishes are available on request:

  • Blind embossing
  • Cellophaning or lamination
  • Hot foil stamping: Gold, silver or copper
  • Creasing and die cutting
  • UV varnishing(high gloss & full surface)

Printing methods

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).
