How to Make a Folding Box
Step 1: Material Selection:
Choose the appropriate carton or paperboard material for your folding box. Consider factors like durability and the intended use of the box.
Step 2: Design and Dimensions:
Determine the box's design, dimensions, and style (e.g., tuck-end, snap-lock, or gable box). Accurate measurements are crucial.
Step 3: Printing and Artwork:
Create or provide the design or artwork for your box, including branding, text, and imagery. Ensure it is in the correct format for printing.
Step 4: Die-Cutting:
Craft a custom die that corresponds to your box design. This die will be used to cut the material into the desired shape.
Step 5: Printing Process:
Utilize the chosen printing method (e.g., digital, offset, or screen printing) to apply your design onto the flat material sheets before folding.
Step 6: Die-Cutting and Scoring:
Use the custom die to cut the material into the box shape. Additionally, score along the fold lines to facilitate precise folding.
Step 7: Folding and Assembly:
Fold along the scored lines to shape the box. Assemble any tuck flaps, closures, or locks according to the design.
Step 8: Gluing or Fastening:
Apply adhesive or use other fastening methods, if required, to secure the box's structure.
