|FAQ's Learn More|
Is there a minimum order quantity for auto lock boxes?
No, there is no minimum order for auto lock boxes. You can order as few boxes as you like. Ordering a few boxes is perfect if you would like a sample to check out before committing to a larger order. However, due to initial costs involved in setting up a print job, ordering bigger quantities will typically result in a lower per unit cost.
What is the difference between auto bottom lock vs. snap bottom lock?
Auto bottom allows for the boxes to be shipped flat and to be quickly assembled on the production line.
Snap lock bottom is also referred to as 1-2-3 bottom and has four flaps that are folded and locked together to form the bottom in 3 steps. This design offers a stronger bottom compared to the auto bottom style.
The proof for my auto lock boxes looks blurry. Will it print that way?
No. The emailed proofs only show how the graphics align on the box. The final print is much sharper, as long as vector or high-resolution graphics have been used in your design file. You will be contacted if your graphics appear to be at too low a resolution. If you have any concerns, please feel free to ask us a question.
Can you send me samples of your custom auto lock boxes?
We can send samples of our recent print orders. Please submit a sample request and our sales representative will be in touch so that appropriate product box samples can be sent.
What types of enhancements can I add to my boxes to make them unique?
These are some of the unique features that can be incorporated in the design in order to make sure product packaging unique:
Spot UV Varnish: To call attention to your logo or brand name, an ultra-high gloss finish, Spot UV varnish, can be applied to these areas. This finish is typically applied over a matte or soft-touch laminate to create the desired contrast.
Foil stamping: In order to create a more luxurious look, a shiny foil sheet can be stamped with heat and pressure onto the surface of a card. Foil sheets come in a wide variety of colors and our design team can help you select the desired color that best fits your design.
Embossing & Debossing: A engraved metal die is used to create a relief imprint on the printed surface. Depending on the direction from which the die is applied, it creates an embossed or debossed imprint on the surface.
Auto Lock Bottom Boxes
An auto lock bottom box, sometimes also referred to as an auto bottom carton, is a folding carton box with an automatic locking bottom. These boxes can be easily assembled by squeezing the sides so that the box pops into shape with the bottom already locked closed.
