Tuck Boxes

Great news…..we have MANY tuck box templates available already for STANDARD SIZE cards. You can find these pre-made templates here!

If you find your project utilizes a unique card size or if you have multiple components to be included in the tuck-box, you will need to place an order or place a downpayment on the order to receive your custom template. If you would like to place a downpayment, you can do this by saving a quote and including “I would like to place a downpayment on my order to receive my custom tuck box template early in the additional information section. Your Account Manager will be in touch with you about the payment once you have done this.

Submitting Your Tuck Box Artwork

So, you have your template….what do you need to submit for print-ready artwork?

We will need a total of 2 PDFs uploaded*:

  1. 1 PDF with the template guides overlaying the artwork
  2. 1 PDF with only the artwork – guide layer removed

*PLEASE NOTE: If you have chosen to include any specialty add-ons, we recommend also submitting two versions of each add-on, one with and one without the guide layer visible. For example: 1 PDF of the foil stamp artwork with the template guides / 1 PDF of the foil stamp artwork without guides.

Manufacturing Requirement

Every project we print legally needs to say something along the lines of “Printed in China” or “Printed in PRC.” Be sure to include this in your artwork somewhere conspicuous on the outside of your box.

Two-Piece & Magnetic Closure Boxes

 

 

We do not have custom templates on hand for two-piece or magnetic closure boxes.

We will provide a custom template for your two-piece or magnetic closure box within 2-3 business days AFTER you either place your order or place a downpayment on the order – we cannot provide custom templates ahead of time due to their custom nature and the amount of labor involved. If you would like to place a downpayment, you can do this by saving a quote and including “I would like to place a downpayment on my order to receive my custom box template early in the additional information section. Your Account Manager will be in touch with you about the payment once you have done this.

Manufacturing Requirement & Considerations

  1. Every project we print legally needs to say something along the lines of “Printed in China” or “Printed in PRC.” Be sure to include this in your artwork somewhere conspicuous on the outside of your box.
  2. Be mindful that there is an inherent, unavoidable manufacturing variance. This means the artwork can shift 1-2mm when printed. Keep this in mind when designing your artwork as elements that may be required to line up when the box is assembled, will more than likely not line up perfectly.
