Identify the right paperboard for you folding carton project
Before starting identifying the paperboard, one shall identify the features absolutely required by the project. We shall asses the needs from three perspectives : packaging design, product and supply chain. If the design requires impactful colors and visual effects, the brightness and the whiteness of the outer side of the board are essential. If the designs requires printing on both sides, one shall focus on C2S board (coated 2 sides).
In case of liquid and food packaging, a barrier to moisture could be required, or a barrier to grease. Will the food be in direct contact with the folding carton? Will the packaging (and the product) be facing important variations in temperature and / or humidity levels?
Narrowing the choices at this stage will help paperboard and packaging buyers focus on the structural design with the appropriate options.
