What is a Cardboard Box?
A cardboard box is made using cardboard and is primarily used for shipping and retail purposes. It offers low printability, thus accounting for the lack of printed cardboard boxes. Cardboard boxes feature interlocking flaps and don’t require adhesives. GoTo Packaging makes use of the flexibility of cardboard to create custom cardboard boxes.
Different Finishing Options For Cardboard Boxes
Simple cardboard is not attractive, rather quite bland, and that’s where the problem lies. When we’re talking about retail boxes, an attractive design becomes a compulsion. The conventional printing options don’t work very well with the cardboard because it offers little to no printability. However, the flexibility that it offers is unparalleled. GoTo Packaging relies on various finishing options to make the cardboard boxes attractive while utilizing its flexibility.
Some of the finishing options that we employ include the following;
- Sleeve Cover
We can smoothen the surface of the cardboard boxes with gloss coating while imparting a ‘shiny’ look to it.
The matte coating absorbs light while offering a premium look with sober ambiance.
A sleeve cover can also be printed and then applied to the cardboard boxes. The sleeve cover can feature anything you want, and it will help the cardboard box stand out from the conventional cardboard boxes.
Cardboard Boxes And Custom Inserts
Inserts can significantly enhance cardboard boxes’ performance, and that’s why we offer a variety of custom inserts for our cardboard boxes. These inserts enable us to customize the cardboard packaging as per your products’ needs. The inserts can do a variety of tasks, including keeping the product safe, imparting protection, and making sure that components within the cardboard box don’t end tangling up with one another.
Two of our most used and asked for inserts include the following;
Trays are made using a rigid cardboard sheet and fitted inside the box. You can get custom die-cuts with this particular add-on as per your product’s specifications. The product can either be inserted into the tray or placed underneath it, depending on its design.
We offer all variants of foam that are available in the market. Foams not only offer protection but also enhance the overall outlook of the box. They are placed inside the cardboard boxes and serve as a necessary add-on because of the protection it offers against bumps.
Glue – Free Cardboard Boxes
Welcome to a convenient life where everything is straightforward and doesn’t require a manual for you to figure it out. Our cardboard boxes are designed to be straightforward and can be stored flat. The best part, though? They can be erected without much of an effort as well.
Our cardboard boxes feature a diverse set of locking mechanisms that are quite easy to understand. Furthermore, visual guides are provided as well, thus making the process even easier for you. If glue becomes an absolute necessity due to the product and design limitations, we use specialized glue that has been tested to be safe.

An archive box is a cardboard box specifically created for storing documents and photographs. Despite being single-walled, once assembled, they prove to be quite sturdy and can survive for an extended time.
Full overlap boxes
The full overlap box is intended for heavy-duty purposes. It features flaps that extend all the way to the opposite side of the box once folded and completely overlap each other – thus the name. This particular kind of design allows for structural and stacking strength. It is considered ideal for shipping or storing heavy items. Full overlap boxes are durable and damage-resistant.
Packing cartons are one of the most basic and widely used types of cardboard boxes. We offer them in various sizes based on the needs of your products. Packing cartons do not offer a closing lid and must be glued or taped.
While the pizza boxes’ primary purpose was the delivery of pizzas, but the style of this cardboard box has found various other applications.
