Flutes give strength and structure to boxes, serving as a protector, insulator and cushioning device. Our system is set up to automatically select the flute options that will function best for your box size and style.
E-flute is ideal for high quality printing with a thickness of 1/16″. It is generally used for mailers and some specialty displays like the beer and wine cases.
B-flute is a good alternative to E-flute when wanting to support heavier items. With a thickness of 1/8″ and shorter flutes, this type of box still provides a rigid, flat surface for printing.
C-flute is commonly used for shippers. The flutes are taller here at 3/16″, giving C-flute somewhat better cushioning properties than B-flute.

No! The preview only shows how the graphics align on the box. The final print is much sharper as long as vector or high-resolution graphics are used. Our team will reach out to you if they think higher resolution or vector-based art is needed. We want to make sure you are 100% happy!
CompanyBox accepts artwork in both CMYK and RGB, however we encourage customers to convert images to CMYK before uploading. This ensures you will be able to soft-proof your CMYK images on you monitor and see color results after the conversion. Images supplied in RGB will be converted to CMYK with an automated process using embedded RGB profiles.
Please be aware that screen colors (RGB) may appear duller or lack contrast when printed.
The black lines indicate where the box will be cut and the red lines show where there is a fold. No worries though, these lines will not be printed on your box.
Standard White is the typical corrugated material used for packaging. It has slight variations in the white color if you look very closely.
Premium White is our high performer. It will add a look of luxury to your print. Premium White is available in both a matte and gloss finish. Gloss finish is a process where ink is cured to appear glossier than a traditional matte finish. It is only available on Premium White.
Kraft is the standard brown material you see on boxes, but once you add your branding (logo, color!) it’s not so standard anymore. Be sure to think about the colors you use when choosing this material. Colors will look darker on Kraft than colors printed on Standard or Premium White.
There are no hidden fees. The price you see updates real time and includes printing, cutting and gluing if needed. Once you put the order in your cart you will be able to see a shipping price.

Currently, we do not offer white ink. Our digital print supports the CMYK color spectrum. An alternative method you may want to consider is to replicate the look of white ink of a kraft box. We recommend you use a white box and simulate the kraft material with ink as a vector-based background.
If you want to enhance the look of your box, try out our gloss finish. It will really make it pop! This finish is a unique solution accomplished through a UV curing process. If you’d like to see it first hand before you order, check out the sample kit.
Note: Make sure to choose Premium White paper with a gloss finish while on our site. Gloss finish is not available on our Kraft or Standard White boxes because it may cause the ink to look spotty.
We have two main printers. Our Luxe printer uses water-based ink that is food safe & odorless. This ink meets Nestle guidance and Swiss Ordinance stringent food packaging demands. It is safe for both primary and secondary food packaging. Download the PDF to learn more about the HP water-based inks we use. HP Water Based Inks – Regulatory and DfE attributes
We are the manufacturer. We do the printing, cutting and gluing in house. We oversee your product from beginning to end. This means we can walk over to check on your order anytime during production!
We use UV inks that are cured with LED and UV lamps to make sure smearing is not a factor. Our new C-500 digital printer will use a water-based ink, which also will not have any smearing issues.
