From cosmetics to electronics, fine jewelry to fancy confections, high-quality products deserve high-quality boxes. Durable, substantial, and smooth to the touch, rigid boxes are the perfect choice.
In this guide, we give you everything you need to know about these elegant storage containers: their defining characteristics, advantages, and use cases—as well as the many ways you can personalize yours through our custom packaging services here at Impak.
In the world of product packaging, not all boxes are built equal. On the high end of the quality spectrum are rigid boxes. Unlike regular folding cartons, these premium containers do not typically fold or collapse. They’re usually several times thicker than standard cartons—and most are finished (wrapped) with smooth paper for a luxurious look and texture.
For these reasons, they’re typically used for high-end products to ensure safety and create an elegant unboxing experience.
Depending on the product you’re selling—and the brand identity you’re maintaining—choosing rigid boxes can have a number of benefits for your business. Here are a few of the big ones.
The material used to make rigid boxes is several times thicker than the material used for foldable cartons. This means it’s significantly more durable, which ensures better protection for products of all kinds.
Nothing supports a premium unboxing experience quite like a rigid box. Not only do these boxes feel substantial in construction, they can come in specialty finishing options, giving them a luxurious quality that pays dividends for the perception of your products.
Further, with a choice of custom boxes provided by our team at Impak, you can choose between of a number of designs to further elevate your unboxing experience.
Some popular options include ultra-sturdy magnetic-closure rigid boxes, classic two-piece rigid boxes, and even a host of uniquely collapsible choices.
Yet another advantage of choosing a custom rigid box is the ability to brand it exactly to your liking. A variety of paper, printing and finishing options provide the perfect canvas for specialty branding both inside and out.
The premium build of today’s top rigid boxes makes them excellent candidates for reusability. Odds are, you have at least one rigid box you’re using for storage in your own home right now. This reusability is a definite plus for customers, and a strong argument to brands who prioritize environmental responsibility.
Many rigid boxes are sustainable. At Impak, we partner with organizations like the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and How2Recycle to craft sustainable packaging that’s not only made from recyclable materials, but easy to recycle curbside, too.
