Designing specialty boxes is what Brimar does best. Since we are a custom manufacturer of boxes, we are highly trained in the structural design of our products. Whether you’re an ad agency with your own design staff or an inventor with little packaging knowledge, Brimar will help you decide which box options best suit your needs.
Your corporate image and sales demographics, along with your sales outlets and your shipping methods are a few factors Brimar’s highly trained staff will use to design your box.
Custom samples need to be produced to ensure that you are comfortable with what you are buying. Will the box being quoted be strong enough? Will your products be laid out correctly in your box? These are a few questions that can easily be answered by creating a custom-made box sample. Most of the time there will be a charge associated with a custom box sample.
Perhaps an existing sample of a box from our sample department will suffice. Since specialty boxes are so unique, samples may be limited. Existing specialty box samples will be sent out free of charge by UPS or FedEx Ground service.
Sample materials will always be sent out free of charge by UPS or FedEx Ground service. If you need to see available papers, foils, or board colors, then we would be glad to send you samples to help you decide what materials will be used to make your box.
The most common hinge on a hinged box is achieved by adhering the lid paper to the bottom of the box. Most often, this style of hinge is used when the cover of the box extends all the way down, or is full telescoping. If extra strength is needed, you may include a reinforcing strip of paper or tape on the inside of the box
Taped and Stitched Hinge
Our strongest hinge for custom specialty boxes is called a taped and stitched hinge. This style is made by stapling the cover to the bottom, then adding a piece of paper or tape to cover the staples. You can add a taped and stitched hinge to a box that has a short lid or a full telescoping lid.x
Neck boxes are three-piece boxes, with a “neck” glued into the bottom of the box. The Neck can be another rigid setup tray, a diecut and glued sleeve, a thermo-formed plastic insert, or any material that when glued in the bottom of the box will support the cover. Learn more about Neck Boxes HERE.
Shoulder boxes are three-piece specialty boxes, with a “shoulder” glued or friction-locked into the cover. Usually, the lid of a shoulder box is deeper than the bottom, and the shoulder prevents the bottom from pushing up into the lid
Plain Stay Boxes
Plain stay boxes are traditionally used as an inexpensive industrial parts box. This specialty box is a standard set-up box with the stay, or tape, on the corners left exposed. Dress up an inexpensive plain stay box by only wrapping the lid.
