What Are Custom Die Cut Packaging Boxes?
Die cut boxes are made using a bespoke cutting tool during manufacturing. This method of packaging production creates boxes to fit an array of products. If you like the look of our standard box styles, we can customise and print these designs to give you a custom die cut packaging solution.
We can also create a range of additional box fittings for your die cut boxes — handles, locking tabs, self-seal strips, perforations, fold-over lids, and crash-lock bases can all be added to your packaging for a bespoke solution.
Custom die cut boxes are best suited to packaging small to medium-sized items. Boxes made using a die cut method offer superior protection for fragile or irregularly shaped items, making them a popular choice for businesses across various sectors.
How Are Die Cut Packaging Boxes Made?
First, we create a cutting tool, commonly known as a “forme” in the packaging industry. This forme stamps out the overall size, shape and style of your box. There’s a one-off cost for creating the forme, often referred to as the “initial tooling charge”. We keep these forme costs to a minimum, helping you get your new packaging project into production quickly and cost-effectively.
What Materials Can Be Used to Make Custom Die Cut Boxes?
Almost any corrugated or cardboard material can be die cut, giving you plenty of options for a bespoke eco-friendly packaging solution. We can die-cut all types of single-wall and double-wall corrugated boxes, folding box board (FBB) boxes and rigid boxes to create bread trays, postal boxes and much more.
