Carton package design


To a large extent, carton packaging uses its exquisite shapes and decorations to promote and beautify products and increase their competitiveness. The shape and structural design of the carton are often determined by the shape and characteristics of the packaged goods, so there are many styles and types, including rectangular, square, polygonal, special-shaped carton, cylindrical, etc., but the manufacturing process is basically the same . That is, the process is to choose materials-design icons-make templates-stamping-then combine boxes.


Paper product packaging is the most widely used type in the packaging industry. Carton boxes are the most important form of transportation packaging, and carton boxes are widely used as sales packaging for various products such as food, medicine, and electronics. With the change of transportation methods and sales methods, the styles of cartons and cartons are becoming more and more diversified. Nearly every new type of non-standard cartons comes with a set of automated equipment. And the cartons with novel shapes have also become Means of product promotion.


The carton design is also an abstract language expression. The shape of the carton can be excavated and created from the aspects of vitality, dynamics, volume, and depth, while combining formal beauty principles such as jointing, contrasting, proportioning, integration, change and unity, and dynamics to create a dynamic and interesting life Shape of carton package.


Carton packaging cannot come without carton, so how much do we know about carton? Carton boxes are the most widely used packaging products. According to different materials, there are corrugated boxes, single-layer cardboard boxes, etc., there are various specifications and models.

Carton material


Cardboard boxes are commonly used in three layers, five layers, and seven layers are used less. Each layer is divided into lining paper, corrugated paper, core paper, and face paper. Inside and face paper are teaboard paper, kraft paper, corrugated paper for core paper, and The color and feel are different, and the paper (color, feel) produced by different manufacturers is also different.


Packaging cartons, as an indispensable part of modern logistics, bear important responsibilities for packaging, protecting products, and aesthetics. The physical performance indicators of packaging cartons have become the basis for their quality assessment.


The design of carton products is particularly important, otherwise it will be difficult to meet customer requirements, and returns may occur, causing significant losses to the enterprise.


When choosing a corrugated box, first of all, take into account the nature, weight, storage and transportation conditions and circulation environment of the product. Secondly, it should be designed according to the principles of shockproof packaging design and corrugated box design methods. In addition, relevant standards must be followed. For example, export product packaging must comply with international standards. Standards or requirements of foreign businessmen, and relevant tests, should be paid attention to the following two points when selecting corrugated box packaging.


First, the corrugated model of corrugated cardboard. Corrugated models are classified into A, B, C, and E according to the height of the corrugated board. The mechanical properties of different corrugated boards are also different.


Second, the box shape of the corrugated box. Under the premise of ensuring the quality of the carton, it should try to save the carton processing materials and packaging costs.


In addition, the following points need more attention. Compared with the standard box, the roll-type carton is characterized by less material, the carton and the contents are closely attached, and high-speed automation can be realized. Separate cartons can be combined with various auxiliary materials on the basis of traditional standard cartons to make small cartons, or a new molding method. The triangular column corrugated box is formed by one box and the corner lining. The four corners of the corrugated box form a triangular column or a right angle column structure, thereby improving the compressive strength by 20% -50%.

4 carton printing processes


1. Plastic gravure composite carton process. The advantage is that the production cost of the carton is low and the printing is beautiful.

2. Coated paper gravure composite carton process.

3. Direct offset printing corrugated box process. This process can not only ensure the good formability of the carton, but also complete the exquisite face printing, but the printer used is more expensive

4. Flexo preprint and gravure preprint corrugated carton process. In recent years, the development has been relatively rapid. Both processes are first printed in roll paper, and then the production of corrugated cardboard is completed on a fully automatic corrugated cardboard production line. The printing quality and molding quality of the carton are relatively high, but the investment is relatively large, and it is not suitable for small batch production.


In order to improve the quality of cartons, reduce the total cost of cartons, obtain maximum profits, and increase their competitive advantage in the market, it is imperative to adopt new printing cartons.
