Four Panel Style Boxes

Four Panel style custom boxes often include end closure panels and flaps which are fastened in a variety of ways to create tuck end, seal end, or lock end closure devices.

Reverse Tuck End (RTE)

In the RTE box, the top closure hinges off the front panel and tucks to the rear, while the bottom closure hinges off the rear and tucks to the front. This style is preferred for custom cosmetic boxes since it presents a more finished appearance and better graphic design opportunities. It is also used for custom automotive boxes, custom bakery boxes, custom candy boxes, custom cannabis boxes, custom food boxes, custom medical boxes, custom pharmaceutical packaging boxes, custom retail boxes , and custom vape boxes.

Straight Tuck End (STE)

In the STE box, the top and bottom closure panels tuck from the rear to the front or from the front to the rear. It is particularly well suited for products requiring a paper box with a window in the front display panel. The STE is used in most categories, including custom automotive boxes, custom bakery boxes, custom beverage boxes, custom candy boxes, custom cannabis boxes, custom cosmetic boxes, custom food boxes, custom medical boxes, custom pharmaceutical packaging boxes, custom retail boxes, and custom vape boxes.

Straight Tuck End (STE) with Hang Tab

The STE with Hang Tab box is used for small, light products. It is an ideal point of purchase display to be placed on a peg. This box is often used for custom automotive boxes, custom cosmetic boxes, custom medical boxes, and custom retail boxes.

Straight Tuck End (STE) with Side Hang Tab

The STE with Side Hang Tab box is a common way of developing a header panel or hang card. It can be oriented with the header card up or to the side. Common uses for this box include custom cosmetic boxes, custom medical boxes, and custom retail boxes.

Seal End

The Seal End box is typically erected, filled and closed by packaging equipment. It is often used for custom bakery boxes, custom candy boxes, custom cannabis boxes, custom food boxes, custom medical boxes, and custom retail boxes.

Tuck Top Snap Lock Bottom (TTSLB)

The TTSLB box is used almost exclusively as a bottom closure, generally in combination with a tuck top closure. This is a hand erected and closed style.

Sleeves are commonly used for custom bakery boxes, custom candy boxes, custom food boxes, custom medical boxes, and custom retail boxes.

Edge Locked Sleeve

The Edge Locked Sleeve is generally used for custom food boxes and is used to hold one or more plastic containers.
