What are folding cartons?

Folding cartons are small to medium sized “cardboard boxes” made from cartonboard. They are referred to as folding cartons because they are usually delivered to the packer in a flat form, either as a side seam glued carton, which is folded flat, or as a flat piece of printed board cut around the perimeter to a carton profile. This feature provides a major space saving benefit in storage and transportation prior to packing.

The term folding is used to distinguish it from the rigid carton or box which is “set-up” by the manufacturer and delivered in its three dimensional shape to the packer.
