Telescope boxes

Telescope boxes

The telescope box is a special type of folding box which has a particularly large lid opening. The lid of the box is "slipped" over this opening and the folding box is thus closed. Telescope boxes usually have only a small height and are rather flat.

    Telescope box

    Telescope boxes are mainly used to pack flat objects in industrial packaging or to provide little content with an promotionally effective area on the lid. Typical areas of application for telescope boxes include the packaging of clothing and foods. Everyone knows a box of chocolates for example, in which some chocolates are packed in an elaborate plastic inlay. If the large lid is opened, the pralines which are often located behind a layer of paper, becomes visible. Also high-quality shorts, T-shirts, representative gift articles or cutlery are packed in the  telescope boxes even partly in tissue paper.
    As for the type of lid, there are two different types of telescope boxes. Either the lid is still fixed to the box or it is placed as a second separate folding box from above on to the lower part of the box. Both box parts must be individually printed in this case and then folded. 
    All finishing for folding boxes are also possible in telescope boxes. Window-cuttings on the upper side are especially popular, behind which one can take a look at the contents of the telescope box . 

    Advantages of telescope boxes:

    • Large lid opening ensures easy opening
    • Noticeable advertising is possible, especially on the lid and on the base
    • Can be filled very well
    • Window-cutting
    • They can be easily closed again
    • They are well stackable
