Box Sleeves

Customise generic packaging with your own personalised box sleeves! Custom box sleeves are a versatile way to promote your branding, without the price tag associated with a full printed box design. Create personalised packaging and branded packaging that will catch eyes, and save money. 

Box sleeves printing

We can create printed box sleeves in a wide range of sizes, materials and shapes. To pick your perfect size, simply pop the dimension of the box into the box size calculator and your sleeve size will be auto generated.

Our box sleeve packaging can be printed on a variety of materials, including silk paper as standard, box board for extra durability and recycled paper for eco-conscious businesses. If you’re really looking to demonstrate your commitment to the environment to your customers, we also offer Kraft paper for your box wrap: fully recycled, recyclable and unbleached (so uses less energy to produce).

You don’t have to stick to the conventional rectangle, either! Choose a belly band for a thinner strip across your packaging, or get in touch with our friendly team to discuss die cut shapes. With the latest digital cutting technology, we can create box sleeves in a custom shape – perhaps your logo or best-selling product! Send us your desired shape and we can provide a box sleeve mockup for you to see, before we go to print. 

Create your own sleeve designs with a downloadable box sleeve template, or take advantage of our in house design services. Our graphic designers will make a unique sleeves design, to your specifications. We can also create a square sleeves design, or custom shapes. 

Add an extra eye-catching touch to your box sleeve design with coloured foiling or hologramatic foiling: perfect for adding authenticity to your product packaging. Alternatively, opt for brown paper sleeves to offer added support and durability to your packaging. 

Alternative box sleeve uses

You can employ a box wrap in almost any setting to give your product cheap, branded packaging. Use postal box sleeves to address your packaging in style and create eco friendly mailing sleeves: a green alternative to plastic mailing sleeves. Use thinner box sleeves, known as ‘belly bands’ to hold together gift sets (a box band is particularly popular for makeup kits, haircare sets and confectionery). The perfect personalised packaging, create branded boxes without the cost of a full box print. 

Similarly, this handy printed marketing product can be used for a whole host of other things, including recyclable food packaging – for example, the sleeve on a microwave meal or a can sleeve. In a similar vein, an electrical box sleeve can be included around a tech product, giving care and set-up instructions. A cake box sleeve can wrap around a birthday cake providing crucial allergy information. A book box sleeve will save the need for a dust jacket; use book sleeves to add your own company branding to a textbook or manual. A box wrapper can provide personalised food boxes, a box band can be used on any box imaginable… the list is endless!

Cheap box sleeves can be used in almost any industry as a cost-effective, eco-friendly addition to generic packaging.

How will my printed box sleeves be supplied?

Your sleeves will be supplied and posted flat and pre-creased with self-adhesive tape for ease of assembly. Alternatively, we can supply them taped and assembled.

As an eco sleeve maker, we know that recyclability is key. All our non-laminated sleeves are fully recyclable in domestic recycling, and our Kraft brown paper sleeves are made from reclaimed paper. We are a trusted plant sleeves supplier – our eco-friendly Kraft paper makes for perfect plant and seed sleeves.

FAQs

How will I know what size box sleeve will fit my box?
Use the free calculator tool on this page – pop in the dimensions of the box you’d like to cover and your size will be generated for you.
Would we add our designs to the template and send the mock up back to you, or do we need to supply just the images and text to the design team and they add them to the template?
As standard our designer will send you the artwork template for you to add the design and send back to us. If you’d prefer to send you files to us for our designer to create the artwork then this is fine but there may be a small charge.
Your Artwork Guide says ” If using one of our templates you should either remove the template before supplying or leave it as a separate layer”. What does this mean?
This is a safeguard to ensure that the template doesn’t accidentally get printed. One file should be supplied with the template lines included and one file with the template removed.
Should I wait to receive the template and add our designs to them before making payment or do I need to pay first.
It’s best to make payment as soon as possible to avoid delays in production, however if you’d prefer to wait for the artwork template before making payment then this is fine.
What if I don’t want the sleeve to completely cover the box?
When using the calculator, pop the desired sleeve width in instead of the box width- this will create a thinner band that will still get round your box.
Why do i need to send my box in?
Measuring your box carefully with a ruler can give a fairly decent result but when you factor in the stretch of paper and the scoring process a couple of millimetre difference can drastically alter the fit of your sleeve!
Thats why with our bespoke tailored service we will do an actual mock up sleeve using your box and a silk stock paper on our scoring machine to create an accurate template.
Why are some sleeves printed in sections?
We can print a maximum paper width of 700mm, so if you have a longer box sleeve we may need to print in two sections and neatly join them with tape to accommodate.
Also shorter runs are generally printed on our digital press for cost effectiveness, this has a maximum printing width of 440mm so any short run sleeve over 440mm in length may be printed and joined in two parts also.
Head to foot or side to side?
Depending on which way you turn your box can effect on how you would set up your artwork, specifically the panel that sits on the bottom.
This can be a subjective choice but we would recommend if the box is small and can be turned with one hand then the artwork should be set up side to side, for a larger box we would advise setting up the bottom panel so it is viewed from head to foot as people would tend to hold these with both hands. See diagrams below for set up guide or get in touch if you need more assistance.
