Inverted boxes

What are inverted trays

Slip lid boxes are a very popular type of printed packaging and consist of two parts, a lid and a bottom part. They are sturdy, versatile and are particularly suitable for high value products. 

We offer two different variations of slip lid boxes as well as labels in addition to different sizes, materials, colours and finishes. Choose in our online calculator between a rolled or a turned bottom part! Of course, you can also order the lid and the bottom of the slip lid boxes from us individually.

Functions of inverted trays

The telescope carton offers your products a first-class packaging function, protection function and marketing function. It is the optimal packaging for many products, because it can be easily transported and stored. At the same time, it protects the product from environmental influences so that it is not damaged. Due to the large area of the slip lid packaging, it is perfect for advertising purposes and thus makes a decisive contribution to customer loyalty. 

Structure of slip lid boxes

The two-piece slip lid box consists of a lid that slips over the bottom part. This makes the box very sturdy and strong. The construction of the box works as follows: The lid and base are pre-glued on both long sides or can be built up quickly and easily by folding in the flaps. We deliver our slip lid boxes in a flat state or in a ready-made state. Whereby delivery in the flat state is significantly more cost-effective and space-saving. 

Advantages of inverted trays

  • Universal:

    The boxes can be used for a wide variety of products

  • Functional:

    The matching packaging provides protection and can be used for promotional purposes

  • Optional:

    A choice can be made between different box types, materials and finishes

Possible applications of the slip lid box

The slip lid box is a popular packaging and shines as gift packaging, promotional packaging or packaging for delicatessen. It is also perfect for high quality products such as jewellery or chocolates. The box also finds its place in industry, as it is ideal for heavy and delicate products such as metal products. Due to the two-part construction, the slip lid box can be opened and closed at will. For this reason, it can be very well reused. 

Differences to other products

Compared to other packaging, the telescope carton has a very high protective function. This is very similar to that of standard folding boxes. However, the difference is the greater robustness due to the two-part structure with base and lid. In addition, the slip lid packaging looks very high quality and is therefore perfect for gift giving.
