Description

More information on Die cut boxes

Die cut boxes are a great choice for a wide range of packaging applications.

Being easy to assemble and pack, not only do die cut boxes look great – making them perfect for end user applications such as ecommerce packaging – but can help to improve packing and fulfilment times too.

They can also be designed to provide excellent levels of transit protection, particularly when combined with additional inserts manufactured from corrugated or foam materials. This makes die cut boxes equally suited to industrial packaging applications too.

Other benefits include features such as hinged lids, self-sealing closures, integral fittings and even carry handles.

All of this means great usability for your customers alongside the levels of transit protection, improving their satisfaction.

Custom die cut boxes

Although GWP can manufacture any die cut box from the FEFCO styles catalogue of box designs (with FEFCO 0426 and 0427 being very popular options), sometimes an “off the shelf” or standard box simply will not meet your specific requirements.

With custom die cut packaging however – even if this is just tailoring the sizes to your products – you can actually benefit from optimised levels of protection.

GWP’s approach of producing bespoke die cut packaging has a number of advantages when compared with stock sized cardboard boxes.

As you are not having to select a size that is slightly too large to fit your products in, you do not require excessive void fill to fill the empty areas, and do not pay to ship this wasted space either. Both of these factors can combine to make a significant (positive) impact on your ongoing costs.

And as well suggesting suitable inserts (if required), GWP can also carefully select a suitable corrugated material to manufacture your die cut boxes from. This allows for not only the optimum strength and protection in transit, but also helps to balance this with your budget as well. You won’t be paying too much for over spec’d boxes.

This approach of course allows for you to source printed die cut packaging too, with the option to add logos, instructions, and other information to your boxes.

And you can even add specialist coatings, including water resistance, scuff proofing, and even corrosion inhibiting (VCI) properties.

FAQs

Questions about die cut boxes

If you are thinking that custom die cut boxes could be a good fit for your business’ packaging needs, but have a few questions, then the below section should help.

However, if not, or you still require further information, please get in contact with a member of the GWP team on 01793 754 444 or [email protected]

What is a die cut box?

A die cut box is effectively a form of packaging that is cut from a single sheet of material using a cutting tool or forme (die refers to the tool used, cut refers to the process – literally “cut by a die”). This allows for a number of varying designs, many of which will slot together without the need for tapes or adhesive to assemble or seal them.

What is a FEFCO 0427 die cut?

A FEFCO 0427 box (and its close relative the 0426 box) are perhaps the most popular form of die cut packaging. Sometimes known as a pizza style box, FEFCO 0427s can be assembled and closed with no tapes etc, thanks to their hinged lid design. There are a wide range of other die cut layouts in the FEFCO styles catalogue too.

Can die cut boxes have my logo on?

Die cut boxes can be printed in a number of ways, in many cases during the actual manufacturing process (i.e. the box will be cut and printed in one pass through the manufacturing equipment). This allows for simple one- or two-colour printing using flexographic methods, all the way through to full colour, photographic imagery (typically printed using litho laminated or digital methods).

What material are die cut boxes manufactured from?

Die cut boxes tend to be manufactured from corrugated cardboard, but can also be produced using Correx® corrugated plastic. If using cardboard, there are a still a wide range of options to choose from, including both double or single wall fluting and white or kraft paper liners. GWP will be happy to advise on the best material option for your specific application, balancing both cost and required performance.

Will I need to pay for a cutting tool?

Typically, there will be a charge for a cutting tool if you are looking to use die cut packaging at your business. However, the cost savings of using custom sized boxes (such as reduced void fill, minimised shipping costs, less damage etc.) means that any cost is usually offset very quickly. Please speak with a GWP adviser if you have any concerns.
