While we have in the past offered e-flute corrugated options as well as SBS paperboard and poly materials, our in-house specialty is definitely turned edge, also known as rigid construction. The use of durable chipboard and a custom wrap of our clients’ choosing offers an affordable and effective way to stand out among competitors whether the package is for marketing promotions or even a retail product. The three items shown above have all been produced by us with custom turned edge. Ranging from a large intricate sales kit for a tool set, to a simple Flashpad with particularly thick foam and then on to a simple setup box with a bare inside- turned edge packaging solutions are so customizable that all of these products were feasible under the same roof. As a turnkey manufacturing house, we pride ourselves in the ability to source correct materials, print any graphic design or artwork, and of course create a final product that is fulfilled and ready to ship. While turned edge is not a household term, we like to refer to it as hardcover because it is the same way a hardcover text book is made.

Turned Edge Components: Wrap, Liner, and Board

To create a quality turned edge product, there are a few elements that need to come together to create a cohesive packaging solution. Whether the final product is a three ring binder or a cigar style presentation box, the inside liner, internal chipboard, and of course the exterior wrap need to be intricately measured, cut, and placed.

Chipboard: The most common color of chipboard is a brown/gray color, as shown below. However, if the board is showing in any way for the project, we recommend something that will complement the entire package- maybe for you that is brown, but other colors specifically black and white are readily available.

Inside Liner: The interior liner of your box or binder needs to complement the outer wrap. To add dimension, it is important that it differs in some way to the outside. If you will notice the two piece set up box below, the inside liner is white with the company logo in the same color as the wrap- a great way to get a little more brand recognition as well as tie the whole piece together.

Exterior Wrap: An integral piece of the puzzle, the exterior wrap of your turned edge represents everything inside. Choose from textured papers, fabrics, linens, and other materials to create a look and feel that you believe best represents your product line and organization. Jazz it up with offset printing, embossing, or foil stamping. The sky is the limit with graphic design and custom features- create something unique and memorable.
