Custom Rigid Boxes

A rigid box (also known as a set-up box) is an outstanding package for products that require extra care & a high-end look. Rigid boxes are similar in style to folding cartons, but they are often made of thicker material and do not have the ability to collapse. As a result, set-up boxes are a great option for holding delicate products such as perfumes, health & beauty products, or medical devices such as the Quadrabloc which we showcased on our Packaging Design Center case study area.


Most Important Functions

Protection: Due to the material used to make rigid boxes, as well as unique un-collapsable style, they are amongst the strongest chipboard box options for delicate products. The most fragile products that require a high-end look will find their home in a set-up box that will keep it safe & showcase impressive branding.

BrandingThe way your product arrives, and how it is shipped is an extension of your company and brand; and because of this, we work directly with design and marketing teams to ensure your custom rigid box is an accurate and exemplary reflection of the quality and value of your brand.

Cost EffectivenessDespite the fact that rigid boxes are more expensive than regular shipping boxes or folding cartons, they do not have to be damaging to your budget. We have the capacity to run short runs & production runs of a range of rigid box options that can fit in your product's cost profile.
