Production process

This is a raw material processing technology where a specified shape is cut out or stamped from a sheet using a special machine called a "platen press."

The process involves the use of special knives that create precise contours and lines. The machine operates by pressing a cutting knife onto the material under pressure.

Production is typically divided into stages:

  1. Preparation: The chosen material is loaded onto a special table. This can be paper, cardboard, plastic, leather, and many others.
  2. Knife setup: Depending on the desired shape, special knives are installed on the press to perform the stamping.
  3. Pressing: The press is applied to the surface with the installed knives. This precisely and neatly cuts out the required shape.
  4. Part extraction: The obtained blank is removed from the substrate and is immediately ready to use.

It's worth noting that this method allows for the highest precision and detailing, making it particularly valuable for creating unique design solutions.

Formats and thickness

One of the key advantages of die-cutting with a platen press is the ability to work with various material formats. The maximum knife format is 480 x 680 mm, allowing the creation of both small and large elements. Furthermore, the technology demonstrates high flexibility in choosing the thickness of the source, ranging from 0.3 to 3 mm. This enables working with diverse types of materials, including paper, cardboard, fabric, plastic, and many others.

We can manufacture cardboard boxes in various sizes – from small ones for small items to large boxes for bulky goods.
Can you print a logo or other information on cardboard boxes?
Yes, we can print a logo, company name, any artwork, or other information on the boxes. We use silk screen, offset, or digital printing (depending on the request) to ensure high-quality printing on our products.
What materials do you use?
We use a variety of laminated and craft cardboard, natural and partially synthetic fabrics, and various decorative elements. The box itself is made from environmentally friendly raw materials. We can add additional materials or accessories, depending on your needs, such as handles, foam or cardboard inserts, windows, plastic holders, and more.
What is the minimum order quantity?
We understand that personal and business needs can vary, so we try to accommodate even small orders. Typically, the minimum quantity depends on the size and complexity of the product, and we are willing to discuss this on an individual basis. Wholesale orders start from 50 units and above. If necessary, we can produce smaller batches from 1 to 50 units, but at retail prices.
Can you provide a sample box for our order?
Before manufacturing a full batch, we can offer to create a sample box for you to finalize all the details of the final product. You will need to pay for the sample box, and its cost will be the same as for manufacturing a single box. However, if you proceed with a production order after approving the sample, and return the sample in the same condition it was received, we will refund its cost. We produce boxes from a single unit upwards. If you only need one box, we will produce it as a separate order, not as a sample. If you want to ensure the quality of our products, you can visit our office and view samples of our products there. You can also discuss all the details with a manager, finalize materials and design, and place your order.
Can you produce 100 boxes in two to three days, and what does the production time depend on?
If you have an urgent order, we can expedite it, but you need to inform us by phone or email and coordinate it with our managers. If it's technically possible, we can produce your boxes within three days after approval. Please note that the standard production time is 10-14 working days after approval. This period depends on the quantity of boxes, their size, complexity, additional work required, and other factors. We usually provide a more precise estimate of production time when discussing the details of your order. We are always ready to help and provide guidance if any difficulties arise with your order. It's important to remember that an order is considered approved only after all print layouts, box sizes are finalized, and a prepayment is made.
I want to make a bank transfer for the order payment. What documents will you provide?
If you are paying for the order on behalf of a legal entity, you will need to provide us with the registration details of the future payer, and we will send you an invoice without VAT along with a shipping invoice. In turn, we will also provide you with documents related to the person who will be billed.
Is delivery to another city possible? What are the delivery times, minimum order, and transportation cost?
Yes, we work all over Ukraine. Our company is based in Kyiv, but we offer delivery through postal services such as “Nova Poshta” or “In Time”. The cost of transportation is not included in the price of the boxes and depends on the current rates of the chosen carrier. Boxes are packaged in film and corrugated cardboard to ensure maximum protection during transportation. Typically, delivery to major cities takes one day, while to small and medium-sized cities, it can take up to five days.
We can ship your order even if it consists of only one box, and the delivery cost will correspond to the courier service rates. On average, the cost of transporting one small box is 80 UAH, and for larger orders, it can be up to 2000 UAH. For large orders, we offer a special loyalty system. Don't worry; we will find the most convenient and affordable way to transport your beautiful boxes to you on time and at a reasonable cost!
