Standard White is the typical corrugated material used for packaging. It has slight variations in the white color.
Premium White adds a look of luxury to your box, and is available in both matte and gloss finishes. Gloss finish is a process in which ink is cured to appear glossier than a traditional matte finish. It is only available on Premium White.
Kraft is the standard brown material you typically see on boxes. Once you add your colors and logo, your custom branded boxes will stand out. Be sure to think about the colors you use when choosing this material. Colors will look darker on Kraft than colors printed on Standard or Premium White.
Yes. If you would like to see your design in any size or style, you can order a Custom Sample for just $29 plus shipping costs. Just enter a quantity of one (1) when checking out. Note: Orders with a quantity of 1 will not receive a proof, and the final box will be printed and shipped out within 3 business days.
No. The preview only shows how the graphics align on the box. The final print is much sharper, as long as vector or high-resolution graphics are used. You will be contacted if your graphics appear to be at too low a resolution.
Yes. To ensure the best quality, do not rotate or alter the structural template (CAD Die Line). Make sure to include this die line in your print file because it contains Spot Colors for the cut and crease lines. These colors tell our machines how to convert your box. Do not change these lines to CMYK colors or they will print on the final product.
We recommend that you use 10 point or larger font with a heavier weight for text that is reversed out. All type should be outlined in your final artwork file. Avoid specifying small trademark and register mark symbols to print in reverse, as they may fill in when printed.
Graphics and text designs (i.e., non-photographic content) are best submitted as either vector-based PDFs or Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files. This ensures lines and text are crisp. Please make sure there are no cut or crop lines, all transparencies have been flattened, and all fonts are embedded (or outlined) before saving your designs.
When using text or line art:
Make sure text is at least 8 point — smaller text can look good on-screen but will not print well.
Try to keep text in bold colors made up of one or two inks only (C, M, Y or K).
Artwork registration to any panel may vary up to 1/8".
Include at least a .25" bleed in areas where graphics extend past the die line.
When printing lines in a solid or dark color, they should be no thinner than 1 point.
Make sure all fonts are embedded or outlined.
Save your designs using the Adobe PDF/X-1a preset, where possible.

Yes. If you want to enhance the look of your box, use the gloss finish option. This unique solution is accomplished through a UV curing process and helps your design pop. Note: Make sure to choose Premium White paper with a gloss finish while on our site. Gloss finish is not available on our Kraft or Standard White boxes because it may cause the ink to look spotty.
