Set Up Boxes

Set up boxes, also known as rigid boxes, add a premium touch to your products

Premium quality set up boxes, also called rigid boxes or paper boxes, are by far Brimar’s most popular box style. In fact, we make millions of set up boxes every year. A set up box is a two piece cardboard box that cannot be broken down flat without it being destroyed. Think of a game box, like Monopoly®. We manufacture our paper boxes using a variety of materials on several types of specialized machinery that automatically wraps and glues paper around a cardboard tray to create your custom rigid boxes. Because of Brimar’s manufacturing range and experience, Brimar set up boxes are popular in both retail and industrial applications. We can make rigid set up boxes as small as 1.25″L x 0.75″W x 0.5″D to hold a ring or a bearing or a bug. We can also make paper boxes as large as 22″L x 15″W x 7″D to hold a jacket or a diamond grinding wheel or a car part. Brimar’s minimum quantity for manufacturing custom set up boxes is usually 500 boxes, but this minimum can vary depending on your project specifications.
