What Are Custom Die Cut Packaging Boxes?
“Die-cut” boxes are any packaging boxes that require a bespoke cutting tool to be used during the manufacturing process. This unique method of packaging production allows us to create irregular shaped boxes for your products. If you like the look of our standard box styles, we can modify and adjust these designs to suit your needs.
A huge range of additional box fittings can be created using the die cut method too, including a variety of interesting features like handles, locking-tabs, self-seal strips, perforations, fold-over lids and crash-lock bases.
How Are Die Cut Packaging Boxes Made?
We first create a cutting tool, commonly known in the packaging industry as a “forme”. It’s this forme that stamps out the overall size, shape and style of your box. There’s a one-off cost for creating this forme, often referred to as the “initial tooling charge”. We keep these forme costs to minimum, helping you get your new packaging project into production efficiently.
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, meaning you can create bread trays, gable boxes and postal boxes for all kinds of products.
