Before starting the design, we need to measure the net weight of the product, the length, width and height of the product, if the shape of the product is irregular, we need to measure more data for reference.

There are many types of boxes. Different types of boxes can protect products of different weights and sizes. At the same time, the production costs of different types of boxes are also different. You should choose a suitable box type according to product specifications and budget. Usually, you can choose a rigid cardboard box or a foldable card box. Cardboard boxes are divided into lid and base boxes, magnetic book-shaped boxes, drawer boxes, collapsible magnetic boxes, etc.

3. Select the material of the box
