Folding Cartons

5 Panel - Folding Cartons

The 5th-panel folding carton, which is also sometimes called a book cover folding carton, allows for two additional panels to a standard tuck box. This extra landscape gives more room for marketing messages or instructions for use. The extra room can reduce the need for additional literature inside the box. It provides more room to tell a product’s story, versus a conventional tuck box there is insufficient space. When there is extra space accompanied by a window opening, it allows the consumer to see the product without having that product visibly on the shelf space.
