With Newprint custom boxes you can find a packaging solution for a very wide range of products.

Retail Boxes

These are made of simple but elegant paperboard carton that always looks great on shelves. We can print both the interior and the exterior of the box. Premium paper and top-quality print ensure that your boxes stand out among others. They come in four versions:

Reverse Tuck End (RTE)

These have top and bottom closures that swing in opposite directions, with the bottom flap folding in the front and the top flap folding in the rear.

Straight Tuck End (STE)

These have both the top and the bottom flaps that tuck into the rear. This makes a clean and elegant front panel that has no raw edges. With both flaps in the rear, nothing interferes with cutouts that you may want to place on the front panel for product visibility. They are time-saving because they are easy to assemble. This box is very versatile.

1-2-3 Snap Lock Bottom Box

This is almost exclusively used as bottom closure. They have a large locking panel that goes in first, followed by two dust flaps and a small locking panel. This is often combined with a tuck top closure. 1-2-3 Lock is an economical packaging solution for a significant volume order, with a fast-folding process. If you are choosing the packaging for heavier items, they are probably not the best idea.

Auto-Bottom Lock

This is an automatic bottom closure, often paired with a tuck top closure. The base is easy to assemble by simply pressing on opposite corners of the box, which will spring into shape with the bottom locked firmly. This makes it great for busy production lines where packets need to be assemblied and filled as quickly as possible. This box doesn’t need the tape to hold the bottom together, which reduces your additional costs.

Hinged Lid Boxes

This can be used for a wide range of products. The lid can tuck into the box, or they can have locking flaps that tuck into the front for extra security. Premium paperboard is a perfect surface for a high-quality print, and this combination is what makes your packaging always look exclusive.

Roll End Tuck Front (RETF) Box

This is one of the most common hinged lid boxes that provides a sturdy structure on both the front and the side panels. It has a connected lid and the front panel with two locking flaps that lock into the space between the double side walls, thus protecting from dust and dirt in transit. This box has a high presentation value, and it is reusable. The end consumers love the unboxing experience that they have with RETF boxes, which makes them great for subscription box packaging because they offer a sense of quality. You usually have to assemble and lock it by hand, which requires slightly more time and effort.
