Dollard Packaging’s Advice on Packaging Structure.

As with any carton design project, our advice is always to check the feasibility of your proposed carton structure with us long before you sign off on your new carton design. This is because the carton structure is fundamental to how your carton will function throughout its lifecycle. It is imperative to get a dialogue open with us and your carton designer so that we can advise you which carton structures will function well throughout manufacture, being filled, storage, display, use and recycling. We will also supply your graphic designer with a carton keyline which will ensure that the artwork is correctly formatted.
