CUSTOM MADE BOXES

 

Custom Made Boxes are essential for many businesses and most will set out to get a detailed Die Cut box. But did you know this has a set up charge known as “Tooling” or “Knife Cost”?

While there’s no doubt this popular design known as a “roll over with tuck in ears” looks great.

 

DIE CUT BOX

It carries a premium cost for your first order. If you’re in your set up phase of your business, juggling this sort of capital outlay is the last thing you need.

If this design isn’t imperative, then why not consider other options that don’t require tooling and save yourself some money?

This acquisition, which is effective from the 1st  January 2014, follows similar expansion events over the recent years by UBEECO™ and is a continuation of The UBEECO™ Group’s strategic positioning in the industrial packaging market in Australia.

 

UBEECO™’s MD Joseph Borg noted that:

TIPS FOR GETTING YOUR FRUIT CRATES CUSTOM MADE

November 26, 2013 Tuesday. Tags:

 
 

FRUIT CRATES

 
 
 

The creativity of our customers never ceases to amaze me. As an industrial manufacturer, we’re used to making Wooden Pallets and Boxes for machinery and heavy equipment but this fashionable phase of industrial repurposing is not our ‘standard’ style of customer.

 
 

Whilst it’s not our focus, and far from being what keeps us in business, we’re still happy to try and help with the dozen or hundreds of boxes you need for your creative project.

 

Whether it’s a retail display or a creative office display;

 

FRUIT CRATE BOX

 
 

  Fruit Crate Wall & Furniture

 
 

There’s a few things you need to keep in mind…

 

1 – PRICE -

We cannot make you a box for $5 or $10. We will make this as affordable as possible, but don’t see this as being an ultra cheap exercise

 

2 – MATERIAL –

If Rustic is what you’re after, then we can help. We’re an industrial manufacturer so we wont have Oak or beautifully finished timber. Consider the material options you have with us.

 

3DESIGN -

What style of box are you after? Do you want a Tray or a crate? Can you have gaps? Do you want handles? What about corner posts?

 

4 – SIZE –

This is probably the most important thing to keep in mind. We go by INTERNAL measurements of Length x Width x Height. This is something you need to me mindful of when telling us what size you need to be quoted on.

 

 

This is not all you need to consider, and its not all we can do, so get in touch with our team to tell us about your vision and what we can do to bring it to life!

4 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIE CUT CARTONS

November 25, 2013 Monday. Tags:

 

DIE CUT CARTONS

 
 
 

There’s no doubt that Die Cut Cartons look great, especially when it comes to using as gift boxes, but there’s a few things you need to keep in mind before you start making calls.

 
 
 

WHAT IS A DIE CUT CARTON?

 

As a rule of thumb, if the box has self locking flaps, walls that fold into each other without the need of tape, or shapes cut out of the board then you can be pretty sure its a die-cut box.

 
 

Die Cut Cartons

 
 
 
 

SET UP COSTS

 

Die-cutting requires a “tooling” charge. This charge varies depending on the size of the box, the detail, and the run size. This cost can start at around $650 and run into the thousands. So ask yourself do you want to outlay money for the size and style you want?

 
 
 
 

RUN SIZE

 

This is no different to any custom made carton, the more you buy the better your price will be. I say as a rule of thumb, 500 units is the best starting point for getting a decent price on your die cut cartons. You could get 50, but your price would be out of this world!

 
 
 
 

STOCK SIZES

 

Some carton manufacturers will have a range of ‘stock’ cartons available. We can NEVER please everyone. Its impossible to range a size that meets everyone’s requirements, but its worth asking the questions before you invest in tooling.

At the time of writing this, we have a number of die cut “Mailing Cartons” available with height limits of around 7cm.

 
 

Whether you want custom made, or something in stock, we’d be pleased to talk over your options so get in touch with our team today!

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT CUSTOM MADE CARDBOARD BOXES

CUSTOM MADE CARDBOARD BOX

 
 

So you’re looking for a Cardboard Box? Do you know what you want, or even what’s available. We’d like to give you some pointers to help you find the right solution.

 

 
 

WHAT STYLE OF BOXES CAN I CHOOSE FROM?

Here are a few of the most common style of boxes we get asked for and manufacture.

 
FIVE PANEL FOLDER

DIE CUT BOX

HSC CARTON WITH LID

RSC - REGULAR SLOTTED CARTON

CAN I GET A CUSTOM MADE DIECUT BOX?

 

99% of our callers want a custom made die cut box. Well they think they want this until they understand the costs.

Die cut cartons require tooling to set the job up, this is an average of $800 in cost. So if you don’t have the capital to consider outlaying this sort of cash, you need to look at something standard or a custom RSC.

 
 
 

WHAT IS A STANDARD BOX?

 

An RSC is a Regular Slotted Carton. This is your traditional looking shipping with flaps open at the top and bottom and would be classed as a “Standard Carton”

This style is considerably cheaper, its also easier to get your hands on a stock range of sizes from most carton suppliers.

 
 

WHAT’S THE MINIMUM ORDER FOR CUSTOM MADE BOXES?

 

My answer is always pretty standard there’s no minimum, it’s all about what you’re prepared to pay to get what you want.

If a custom made A4 box is $0.50 for 5000 units, you can be sure it’ll be closer to $5 if you only want 50. So how valuable are these 50 custom cartons to you, and can you use something standard?

 
 
 

 HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET PRINTING?

 

For a 1 colour print, the unit cost doesn’t change too much, it might be 10 -15% more in price to get something printed. But there will be a set up charge that start from around $550+ depending on the detail and run size.
