What Is a Tuck Top Auto Bottom Box?
The tuck top auto bottom box the most popular general solution for several kinds of retail packaging. The bottom four flaps are glued together, making these boxes sturdy and robust for handling, transportation, and storage. They also look great on shelves or in window displays. Tuck top auto bottom boxes have a firm, pre-glued bottom for added strength and a fold flap at the top end for opening. Fully customizable and brandable, they’re excellent cartons for housing and presentation of your products. These boxes are ideal for human or machine-assisted assembly and loading.
Structural and Style Features of Tuck Top Auto Bottom Boxes
Tuck top auto bottom boxes are designed on a single sheet of card or paperboard—typically 250 to 350 gsm C1S paperboardor E-corrugated paperboard or F-corrugated paperboard, which we print with your custom artwork and text, before die-cutting, folding, and gluing to make the final carton. We can provide them pre-assembled or flat-packed for storage and self-assembly. Self-assembly time is greatly reduced compared to other box styles because of the “auto bottom” which folds and locks together with great ease.
Which Products Are Best Suited to Tuck Top Auto Bottom Boxes?
Tuck Top Auto Bottom Box Material Options
Tuck top auto bottom boxes are normally made of either C1S (coated one side) paper or cardboard. For larger boxes that need greater strength, corrugated cardboard is a sensible choice. Which materials you choose depends on your design needs and your budget. Cardboard is stronger and more rigid than paper, but C1S paper may be better for full-color printing and customization. Kraft paper is a good choice if you want a natural look or the carton is intended for eco-friendly products.
