Easy to assemble
No, we wouldn’t recommend it. Our Pillow Boxes are designed to be primary packaging, such as retail packaging for in-store display or gift packaging. TIP: our customers normally ship these product boxes by combining them with shipping packaging, like the Corrugated Mailer Box or the Expandable Kraft Mailer.
At this point we do not offer any standard sizes for this product. You can customize the size of pillow boxes – just add your required dimensions during the quoting process.
Yes, but with one main limitation. First of all, the cardstock used in our pillow boxes is locally fabricated from certified wood. Only alternative inks are used in printing. After use as packaging, the material is not only recyclable but also biodegradable and compostable. What does this mean? Over a short time, the material will not only biodegrade to a natural state, but it will also act as an agent to assist the composting process of other materials around it. But it all depends on what finishes you choose. For example, certain foils can limit the recycling, biodegradable and compostable properties of the box. → Find out more about the eco properties of our packaging.
The pillow box is a really versatile piece of packaging. They are great product boxes for eyewear, jewellery, cosmetics, hair care products, hair accessories, and small items of clothing (e.g. underwear). They are also perfect for gift cards, corporate gifts, employee onboarding, complimentary gifts, and gifts for wedding guests, just to name a few.
If you want to get technical, the industry standard is to measure this type of cardstock by grammage – or grams per square metre (gsm). But as a general rule, a heavier stock is also usually thicker and sturdier. Our product boxes are available in three paper grades. The standard grammage is 300gsm for both White and Kraft. You can also request 350 or 400gsm in White. If you need the exact thickness by the millimetre, reach out during the quoting process and our Packaging Experts will answer your questions in detail.
It depends. The strength of your pillow boxes will be determined by the construction design and the material (300-400gsm) you choose. Reach out during the quoting process and our Packaging Experts can provide you with a solution tailored to your product’s specifications.
The short answer: they’re delivered pre-glued and folded flat, but not assembled. Our Pillow Boxes are glued at one point on a side flap during the production process. This saves your team from applying any adhesives, meaning assembly is quick and easy. Just pop open the collapsed box and fold in the bottom and top.
It’s up to you. As an add-on, you can choose to have the cardstock laminated with a matte or glossy foil either on the inside or outside. So, you could have a glossy finish on the outside and a matte feel on the inside of your pillow boxes. There’s also the choice of soft-touch or Spot UV varnishing. Just make your selection during the quoting process or reach out to our Packaging Experts for any more complex finishing requirements.
