These are the boxes that are made from the paper-based material which is really cheap, effective and easy to handle.

Paperboard is also available with the name of folding carton. It is a consumer friendly option for packing variety of products. The smooth and flexible texture of its paper material allows you to try your hands for whichever sort of printing and processing you want.
The paper board material is made from the turning of fibrous (naturally occurring) materials that come from wood. These are also made directly from the recycled waste paper into pulp and bleaching it. You can use this material for the packing of cosmetics, medicines, milk, juice, frozen culinary items and more.
There are many types of paperboard material that you can use as per your requirement. These include white paper board, kraft, food-grade, CCNB and SBS. However, the Kraft paper is found less resistant to moisture, making it less suitable for food products. So it is recommended not to use them in food packaging.
It is a versatile mailer box that imparts a sturdy, stylish and a scintillating look to the boxes enveloping the gift boxes, subscription boxes and e-commerce packaging. These are usually seen as the smaller sized boxes almost equal to the size of envelops with square edges.
These boxes are simply known as Cardboard. It is one of the most widely used packaging entity in the box factories. The most appreciable feature that make these boxes more desirable than all others is its 3 layered material. This box material is made from 3 layers of paper, an outside liner, an inside liner and a corrugated medium as the innermost layer. This corrugation imparts strength and rigidity in the material. It is used in retail packaging, pizza delivery boxes, small consumer goods and so on.

Package Printing Style
After box making with your chosen material (type) as per your product size, the second important step is how to curate and decorate your packaging. To do this beneficial step, here we suggest you three basic types of printing methods to impart a final look to your packaging product.
It is a common form of box printing. In this printing work, we use a printing plate that rotates on a rotatory drum, picks up the ink and stamps it on your corrugated packaging box.
It is another type of printing that is more commonly used for the smaller sized orders. This printing is just like a standard laser jet printer, that you use in your homes.
Litho-Printing, a short of lithographic printing, is more like a wall paper type. In this printing type, instead of directly on box, prints are taken on the paper sheet, processed, cut and then pasted on the boxes. This printing method gives a cleaner and a high resolution result.
