Manufacturing bath bomb boxes requires a lot of precision and careful planning. For example, the cardboard box needs to be sturdy enough to protect the product but also lightweight so shipping costs are low. The perfect kraft paperboard is strong yet light enough for delivery, which makes it an excellent material for manufacturing custom bath bomb boxes.
Process for structuring the packaging:
You need to cut the sheets into desired size pieces. Then you need to glue them together in sets of four or six. There will be two long flaps on either side, and then you need to fold them over and glue them down. You also need to cut off the ends at an angle. Where they meet at one end that is call a tab. This protects it when it goes for shipment because if something falls against the corners of the box, it will not break off easily and cause damage.
After putting glue to them together, each set can have print on in full color for branding or to add unique details. When the printing process is complete pieces are cut out to form windows. So that when they all stack up it becomes easier to recognize what is in each box.
Depending on the size of the product, you will need to order a certain number of items. If you have small products, then an A2 box is good. You can’t put anything bigger than twelve by five inches in it because it has three flaps instead of two long ones. If you have large products, then a B1 box may be better for you. It has two long flaps and one short one which means that nothing will fall out or get damaged during shipping.
inserting design in the kraft paper packaging:
When you are designing a kraft box insert, you will have to work with different types of hinges. These will be the things that hold the package together during the folding process. The most common type of hinge is famous as wafer or no-flap because it attaches without glue or fasteners. But some designers even use buttons and string bows as a quick way to close each package section until final assembly.
There are two main types of boxes that you can order. There are also some variations which means that more choices are available for a variety of items. For example, a booklet style box is available which does not have flaps but instead each side folds in and secures with a sticker or glue.
Window displays help customers know what they are buying. The windows make it easy to see inside the shop. If the windows are clear, you do not need to put labels because people can see what is inside just by looking at them.
Kraft boxes come with their own set of challenges to designing effective and efficient inserts .
To avoid these problems, you should know that no two manufacturers use the same size of boxes. There are different standards for each company. You can make a general plan for this by knowing what is allowed in the box and how much space it will take up.
Proportioning is when you use common sense to make a design look good. If you don’t do it, then the design will not look good. It might be awkward with spaces or shapes that make the package difficult to assemble. When there is more space on one side of a kraft insert, it looks like one section of the box does not belong and likely won’t compliment the rest of each section.
When you are making any project, make sure to leave enough room for folding. You need to make sure that the text or graphics are not cut off when you fold it. And all the sides should be the same size. It will not work if one side is bigger than another side.
2) Unfolded flat area vs folded flat areas
There are different ways to fold paper, but the most important thing is that you use creases. This will prevent any ripples from happening in your design. It also means that the folds will not have stress and could break your kraft inserts. In general, it’s best practice to use as many unfolded flat area as possible when folding. However, there are times where it may make sense to fold a piece twice or more depending on each project’s specific needs.
3) How the insert will be used in a box
Kraft boxes are environmentally friendly and provide good insulation for products. The thickness of the material should consider, as well as how it will bend. Heavy weight paper may not work well in foam inserts or other rigid inserts, but could be used with cardboard. The same is true vice versa; cardboard may not work too well with heavy weight paper because it won’t easily bend.
4) Space between equipment and side walls of the box
When placing inserts into a kraft box for cushioning, empty space is important. If there is too much empty space between the insert and the side walls of the box, then products can shift and move freely in transit, leading to damage. For inserts such as foams, it’s best if they are tightly packed against each other. A good way to achieve this is by inserting them into a rigid kraft or custom printed cardboard boxes that will keep them in place during transport. Cardboard slides between foam and crates may be use to fill spaces more securely. Foam peanuts will help fill any remaining gaps left after packaging.
5) Part thicknesses and board weights
Thicker boards are in need if the weight of the product in the box is to keep below a certain point. If you are using heavy products, ensure that you use heavy boards. Another factor for this is the board’s size. The bigger it is , the more material will have requirement and therefore heavier.
When designing the boxes to hold your items, you need to think about what is inside. The weight, size and fragility of what is in your box will affect which type of packaging product you will use. Your main goal is to protect the items in transit and make them look great when customers get them.
