Different custom packaging materials are suited not only to different applications but also quantities.
For example folding box board packaging is typically used for 1000 plus unit requirements and in 1000 plus numbers can achieve a cost effective piece for any product launch or presentation.
Rigid board boxes or paper over board as it is sometimes known has the greatest flexibility because it is possible to produce a much lower quantity for more targeted marketing campaigns or for more expensive contents.
Metal packaging or light alloy based material offers a real WOW factor impression for products that require a very high end presentation. These are very expensive but will provide a real element of luxury, especially when used with other materials such as soft touch PVC.
