What are common types of boxes you ask?

Regular Slotted Cartons (RSC)


These cartons are primarily shipping and storage boxes, and always require glue, tape, or staples to close. They’re more economical than die cuts (custom boxes), and combine functionality with protection in a single package. To add flare to your rsc boxes, printing can be added: your company name and logo in a few colors, or your own artwork in full 4 color lithographic brilliance.  FYI- ALL BOXES CAN BE CUSTOM PRINTED IF YOU WANT THEM.

Corrugated Mailers


Mailers are a one-piecebox with an attached, self-locking lid. Often used for CD, DVD and VHS shipping, they are ideal for promotional products for your company. Mailers lend a far more attractive and functional aspect to your product as they can be opened and re-closed without any damage to the box itself.

Folding Cartons


This style of box is perfect for boxes that are intricate yet need to be able to fold into a size suitable for storage. These are great for the retail level and can be print with detailed 4 color printing and high gloss UV coatings. Some assembly is required before the box is put into use, but don’t worry, it isn’t origami!

Bin & Storage Containers


These open tray -type boxes are ideal for maximizing your shelf space by organizing supplies, parts, magazines and newsletters.
