Build your custom cardboard box

At Boxtopia, we’re specialists in customising cardboard boxes and packaging, so it’s only natural that we give our customers absolute freedom to create the exact box they need. We allow you to take every design factor into consideration, helping you to create fully personalised packaging boxes. Not only can you alter the size of the box, but the type, cardboard thickness, and colour, too.

When you’re happy with your box design, simply add however many you need to your cart! Play around with the calculator to test different configurations and find the one that works best for your requirements and budget.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Choose your box type: Choose between standard boxes (0201), boxes with full width opening flaps (0203) and wraps or folding boxes (0411). We also sell die cut boxes/postal boxes (most common styles being 0426 and 0427). You can buy from our cardboard box shop but this only gives a selection of sizes. We can produce any style or any size you need.
  2. Choose your cardboard thickness: Your box can be made from lightweight 3mm ‘single wall’ board or from stronger 6mm ‘double wall’ board.
  3. Choose your box colour: You can stick with the standard brown, or add some individuality to your packaging with black or white cardboard.
  4. Choose your box size: Set each of the three dimensions to the size you require. Remember, these dimensions are for the inside of the box, not the outside.

Quick guide to our custom cardboard box types

FEFCO 0201 Box – The Industry Standard Packing Carton

Our standard style custom cardboard boxes are quick to assemble whilst offering great protection for your goods when sealed up with parcel tape. 0201 boxes are perfect for packaging goods safely for shipping or storage. The simple economical design with top and bottom flaps make the box both strong and rigid, and easy to put together. We can custom make this industry standard packing box to provide the perfect fit for your products.

FEFCO 0203 Box – Full Overlap for Greater Strength

The 0203 is an alternative box type to the 0201 that gives the whole structure even more rigidity and is ideal for fragile goods that require more protection. Instead of meeting in the middle, the flaps on the top and bottom each fold all the way across the box. The 0203 also looks neater than the 0201 if a very small custom box is required. The overlap offered by the design of the 0203 box gives a stronger box for safer transportation and storage. So if you need a custom box for heavyweight packaging, the FEFCO 0203 is the choice for you.

FEFCO 0411 Box – Folder Type Packaging

This is one of our folder-type custom boxes that is easy to wrap around the product and meets in the middle. The box is made out of one piece of cardboard and hinged. The ends of the box fold inside the box and will need to be secured with tape. This box is ideal as custom packaging for flat pack furniture products and uses such as boxes for books and paintings.
