Which type of paperboard should I choose?

We suggest you choose a low thickness for small sizes packagings and light products and higher thickness for mid/big sizes packaging and heavier articles.

400 gsm paperboard available on Packly can support a maximum weight of 1/1,5 kg: in this case, though, we always suggest to realize a single box in order to check if the box will keep the product well.

As for packaging realized with a white background and with a paperboard characterized by a high thickness, the result might show little chromatic difference between the cut edges of the box and its surface. This oxidation, that will look straw-yellow, depends on the cutting technologies used by the industry and, therefore, it is a typical feature of the manufacturing process that will be visible only on white packaging.
