Folding Styles

We have the ability to accommodate custom folds at Instafoil, but we typically offer these various folding styles to most of our clients.

Reverse Tuck End Boxes

RTE Boxes, also known as reverse tuck end boxes, have a design where the top closure moves from the back to the front and the bottom closure moves from the front to the back. The reverse tuck end boxes are easy to open and close, allowing for repeated use without compromising the quality of the box and keeping it fresh and intact. Compared to other types of boxes, these boxes offer more security, ensuring that the products inside remain contained and do not spill out.

Straight Tuck End Boxes

These products are frequently used and can be customized in any style and design the clients desire. There are various types of boxes used daily, but we often overlook their specific names. Although we may not recognize them by their original name, straight tuck end boxes are widely used and easily accessible in the market. They are suitable for enclosing a variety of products and work well for all types of merchandise.

Seal End Boxes

The packaging boxes offered are distinct and come in various custom designs, shapes, sizes, and colors. Upon request, we will promptly deliver packaging boxes of any preferred sizes, shapes, or colors. Our top-notch packaging team in the industry guarantees that all delivered packaging boxes meet industry standards.

Tuck End Auto Bottom Boxes

Folding these boxes is extremely simple. They come pre-glued on both sides and at the bottom. If you require a custom size, shape, color, or design that will enhance your business and brand, we can tailor it for you quickly. Our skilled team is prepared to provide exceptional packaging boxes that will elevate your business. We utilize advanced printing technology and techniques.

The Gable Bag Box with Auto Bottom

The custom folding cartons manufacturer attaches this to the bottom, enabling fast loading. It is mainly utilized for custom cosmetic boxes and custom food boxes.

The Four Corner Tray with Lid

The assembly, filling, and sealing are usually done manually. It is appropriate for a wide variety of relatively lightweight items and is frequently employed for personalized food containers (such as custom bakery boxes) and personalized medical containers.


The Six Corner Tray

The customer receives this in a flat shipment and usually sets it up and loads it manually. It is frequently utilized for personalized food packaging and customized medical packaging.

Pillow Box

The subsequent shape is distinctive and is utilized for personalized cosmetic boxes, personalized food boxes (like custom candy boxes), and personalized retail boxes.

Display Box

The purpose of this design is to offer a point-of-purchase unit that can accommodate multiple individual packages or products without requiring any glue for assembly. When using this unit, the retailer can easily open the box’s top and fold back the lid to facilitate convenient advertising. Custom display boxes are frequently utilized for personalized cosmetic, food, medical, pharmaceutical, retail, and toy packaging.

Dispenser Box Packaging

These packaging boxes are distinct and are utilized for dispensing various products in a highly convenient manner. Additionally, they may include a bottom opening tray. These distinct packaging boxes find applications in medicine, retail, candy bars, tea, and food packaging.

Hexagon Box

The hexagon box has all six sides of equal dimensions, but it is often made with the front and back panels longer than the side panels. In any case, it can be folded flat. Hexagon boxes are commonly utilized for personalized cosmetic, food, retail (apparel), and toy packaging.

Punch Partition Boxes

The colorful printing and attractive packaging of these custom boxes not only ensure the safe delivery of products to the market but also help in attracting sales when they are showcased on store shelves. Despite the careful handling by the shipping department, there is always a significant risk of breakage. If you manufacture delicate goods, it is your duty to invest adequately in ensuring that your products reach the market safely.

Self Lock Cake Boxes

The boxes offer ample space, are dependable, and come with three-way locks for user security. They provide enough room to store food items and shield them from heat to maintain their freshness for an extended period.
