It is inevitable that “color box” packaging will become the mainstream packaging form in China.

Colored Gift Boxes WHOLESALER

colored gift box making process

The production process of colored gift boxes is much more complicated than that of folding boxes, which are generally processed by printing – surface treatment (hot stamping, silver plating, lamination, UV, impact convex, etc.) – die-cutting – pasting boxes – checking – packaging.
The production process of the colored gift box is through printing – surface treatment – die-cutting of outer material – die-cutting of the gray board – slotting of the gray board – molding of gray board – pasting of outer material – assembly – inspection completed – packaging. From the process of the two products, the production process of the gift box is complicated and cumbersome, and the process standard is much higher than that of the folding box.
In our daily life, most high-end gift boxes are packaged with paper, and the surface of the paper is also the most suitable for multi-process applications, so the following describes the process with paper as the fabric.

Paper selection

The choice of paper is very important according to the design requirements of customer documents and the effect to be reflected. The main consideration in this regard: is the type of paper, such as coated paper, art paper, and pearl paper. the thickness of the paper. The paper should not be too thick. It is easy to wrinkle when pasted, but not too thin. Consider surface decoration.

Surface decoration

The surface decoration process is very important, the most common main offset printing, and then various processes based on this are: ① reverse glazing; ② lamination (glossy film, matte film, tactile film, scratch-resistant film, etc. ); ③ hot stamping (gold, red gold, colored gold, silver, laser, etc.); ④ partial scratching of UV oil or screen ink; ⑤ special colorful powder;

Select greyboard paper

Grey-board paper, called gray card, is made from a type of recycled waste paper. Mainly divided into single gray, double gray, full gray, and high gloss, according to customer requirements for surface flatness. It is an environmentally friendly packaging material. There is no upper limit for the thickness and quantity. Usually, the appropriate specification gray board is selected according to the size of the box.


Die-cutting is the key part of the process. For special gift boxes, the die-cutting technology has high requirements, and the product quality is accurate and accurate. A little error directly affects the quality of subsequent processing.


Slotting is to use a slotting machine to discharge V-shaped grooves on a gray board with a thickness of 1~4MM. Generally, the connecting layer of about 0.25MM is maintained. The V-shaped groove is an angle, generally 90 degrees, according to the product structure. V-grooves at different angles. Slotting is a critical step in making gift boxes. Before the dashboard is formed, it must be V-shaped to eliminate the dashboard so that the dashboard can be curved, straight on the outside, and square on the inside, with sharp edges and a precise four-corner fit.


It is a necessary process for the frame, and gift box craftsmanship, it is based on the requirements of different products, bonding paper, art paper, wool, leather glue or glue, and tightly adhered to the gray board, so the surface of the gray board looks brand new, not only The appearance of the cabinet is beautified, and the added value of the cabinet is improved. Usually, the box is a die-cut frame, and only the paper gift box can be die-cut after installation. The purpose of this is: first, to be afraid of stains on the outsourcing material, which will affect the appearance; second, the harmony of the overall effect of the gift box. Only after installation can the support body be completely covered, so that the greyboard is wrapped in novel design outsourcing material, presenting us with a gorgeous work of art. Third, some boxes with complex structures are still inseparable from manual pasting. This is not because machines cannot be replaced, but every detail of the box body is manually pasted in place so that the external installation paper and the gray board can be pasted more closely.

Quality defect name in colored gift boxes

There are many steps involved in making a colored gift box. The control of each step is the key to the quality of the box.
In this process, there are hidden risks in the quality of each process. Most of these risks are caused by the lack of quality awareness and uneven skill levels of operators, and the process control is not rigorous, which often occurs Quality loopholes, are the worst enemy of colored gift boxes with stable quality. This is especially important.

CUSTOM Colored Gift Boxes

The most common flaws or quality control points

Loose edges

After the paper is pasted, the four mouth edges of the box body are not tightly adhered, and there is a phenomenon of hanging between the paper and the gray board.


After pasting, the surface of the paper forms irregular dead folds of different lengths.

Broken corners

After the paper is pasted, the four corners of the box appear to be damaged and whitened.

Exposed ash (exposed bottom)

Due to the inaccuracy of the knife plate making, or the deviation of the positioning during the pasting operation, the pasting paper is folded and the overlapping position is dislocated, causing the gray board to be exposed.


The surface of the box is partially raised and irregular, and the size of the bubble is different.

Glue stains

Traces of glue left on the surface.

Protrusions (acne)

There is particulate matter remaining in the lower layer of the packaging material, which partially supports the surface and destroys the flatness of the surface of the box.

High and low angle

After the gray board is half-die-cut or slotted, the four sides are folded and formed, and the two adjacent sides are inconsistent in height.

Water ripples

After the box body is pasted, to make the corners adhere more tightly, it is necessary to scrape the four sides of the box body with a scraper. Due to the irregular force, the entire edge will appear in Strips or vesicles of different lengths and bumps, like water ripples.

Common colored gift box structure designs are all here!

In the entire packaging industry, colored gift box is a relatively complex category. Because of different designs, structures, shapes, size and processes, there are often no standardized processes for a colored gift box. Today, the editor has sorted out the structure design of the common colored gift box single carton, which is mainly divided into two parts: tube packaging box and disc packaging box.

Tube packaging structure design

Tube packaging is the most common form of daily packaging, and most colored gift box, such as food, medicine, daily necessities, etc., use this packaging structure. Its characteristic is that during the molding process, both the lid and the bottom of the box need to be folded and assembled (or glued) to fix or seal, and most of them are of a single structure (the unfolded structure is a whole), and there are sticky openings on the side of the box body. The difference in the structural characteristics of the tubular packaging box is mainly reflected in the assembly method of the cover and the bottom. Let’s take a look at the different cover and bottom structures of the tubular packaging box.

The structure of the lid of the tube packaging box

The lid is the entrance for loading goods and the exit for consumers to take goods, so the structural design requires easy assembly and easy opening, which not only protects the goods but also meets the opening requirements of specific packagings, such as multiple opening or one-time anti-counterfeiting. the opening method. The structure of the cover of the tubular packaging box mainly includes the following methods.

Insert rocker

The box cover has three flap parts, and the main cover has a protruding tongue for inserting into the box body for sealing. When designing, attention should be paid to the occlusal relationship of the flap. This cap is most widely used in tube packaging.

Lock type

In this structure, the flaps on the front and back are inserted and locked with each other, so that the sealing is relatively firm, but the assembly and opening are slightly troublesome.

Mortise lock

It is a combination of plug-in and locking, and the structure is stronger than that of the plug-in flap type.

Swing cover double insurance plug-in

This structure enables the flap to be double-occluded, which is very firm, and the occlusal opening between the flap and the flapping tongue can be omitted, which is more convenient for repeated opening and use.

Adhesive sealing type

This bonding method has good sealing performance and is suitable for automatic machine production, but cannot be opened repeatedly. It is mainly suitable for packaging powdery and granular commodities, such as washing powder, cereals, etc. Once disassembled, it cannot be reused.

Disposable anti-counterfeiting

The characteristic of this type of packaging structure is the use of tooth-shaped cutting lines, which destroys the packaging structure when the consumer opens the packaging, preventing people from reusing the packaging for counterfeiting activities. This kind of packaging box is mainly used in pharmaceutical packaging and some small food packaging, such as film packaging/tissue paper packaging boxes are currently also using this opening method.

Positive press seal

Taking advantage of the folding resistance and toughness of the paper, the folding line of the arc is adopted, and the sealing can be achieved by pressing the pressing wings. This structure is extremely convenient to assemble, open and use, saves most paper, and has a beautiful shape, which is suitable for the packaging of small commodities.

Continuous swing-wing socket type

This kind of locking packaging structure is beautiful in shape and highly decorative, but it is troublesome to assemble and open manually. It is suitable for colored gift boxes and is used in wedding, candy boxes and Christmas gift packaging boxes.

For the first time customizing the printed packaging box, it is generally necessary to make a digital sample. If it is stricter, it even needs to be printed on a printing machine to make a real sample, because when printing a digital sample, the color of the digital sample may be different when printing in large quantities. Proofs ensure consistent color in mass production.


After the proofing is confirmed, the batch can be produced normally. For the production of the packaging and printing factory, this is the first step. The current color box packaging box color process is very beautiful, so the published version colors are also varied, many color boxes.

Paper materials

The choice of color box packaging material has been determined when proofing, here is the type of paper used for packaging box printing

Single copper paper

Coated paper

White board paper

White board paper is a white paper on one side and gray on the other side. The white side is printed with patterns. It is useful as a single box, and some are used as a pit carton.


The printing process requirements of the colored gift boxare very high. The most taboo is a color difference, ink spot, needle position overprinting, scratches, and other problems, which will also bring trouble to the post-press processing.

Printing surface treatment

Surface treatment, the most common color box packaging is glossy glue, over-matte glue, UV, over-varnish, over-matte oil and bronzing, etc.


Die-cutting is the most important link in the post-press processing process, and it is also the last link. If it is not done perfectly, the previous efforts will be in definitly vain. Die-cutting should pay attention to the indentation and not burst the line, and not die.


Many colored gift boxes need to be glued and glued together, and some special structure packaging boxes do not need to be glued, such as aircraft boxes and sky and earth covers. After bonding, it can be packaged and shipped after passing the district quality inspection in production line.
