Understanding & Choosing Your

Box Type

When deciding what type of box you should choose for your product, besides measuring it correctly, it’s important to think about the experience you want to offer to your customers.

When engaging with your product, what side of the box should speak to your clients? Should your customers open the box from front to back, or from back to front? What’s the best closing mechanism considering the shape and weight of your product? We’d love to help you make an informed decision.

Below you can get familiar with all the standard box types we create at YourBoxSolution so you can make the best choice for your product. We can also create a custom box from scratch for you if you have a special requirement.
