Sophisticated Rigid Cigar Box

July 21st, 2014

The rigid box shown below is a variation of a classic cigar-style box with a small addition that makes a big difference. Notice how there are two panels extending from the main tray instead of the standard one. This is simply an elongation of the rigid flat that wraps around the box tray that sits flat open. This creates an extra cover to shield the contents of the box. Not only does this serve a functional purpose, but it allows the designer extra space for branding and design. Surface real estate for packaging can be used up in a flash, so more space to extend your design and mission statement is a valuable asset. This box was used as a part of a promotional marketing campaign. Exuding class and sophistication, this turned edge cigar style box with custom design and silver foil stamp adds value to your marketing repertoire.

A kit like packaging solution, this premium hinged box uses just the right amount of color and white space to appeal to a designer market. The inside tray was custom made to hold the product exactly without risk of damage, but also to house the pen with proper display.

This shows credibility to the consumer- that the product will speak for itself when it comes to quality, and it is worth the premium box that it comes in.
