Thumb Cut Game Box Lid

Thumb Cut Game Box Lid

Thumb cuts are an eclipse the size of a finger tip cut into the box lids for easy removal. No more struggling to pull the lid off your board game!

Adding thumb holes is a small detail, but one that shows your customers you care about the functionality of your packaging as much as your game’s mechanics. It’s a practical option that will make a big impact on your project.

Thumb cuts are added to tuck boxes by default for both our international and domestic print service. However, they do not come as a standard option for two piece boxes, so please keep that in mind when filling out a quote or when sending us your project specs.

If you’re interested in reading more about custom game printing, be sure to check out our custom board game hub and our custom card game hub. These parts of our site contain all the information you need to know about creating a board game or a card game – beyond just the standards listed here, these hubs also contain detailed information on all the types of materials and packaging types we offer for your game. We’ve also analyzed board and card games to figure out what makes them work – and how you can apply these principals to your custom game. Check it out!
