Rigid Boxes are called “rigid” boxes for a reason. They’re strong, durable and non-collapsible which offers protection for your products. Candles, medical supplies, glassware, and candy are more items that are often packaged in Rigid Boxes. When you’re looking for protection, a Rigid Box is the way to go. Standard Rigid Boxes at Gift Box Mart are made of 1200g (2.0 mm thickness) paperboard. For added strength, we can use up to 2000g to 3000g paperboard, and we can make them stronger, still, with board lamination. Be sure to tell us  what type of product you’ll be putting in the box. We can suggest what weight of paper board to choose.

As experienced manufacturer,  Gift Box Mart has sold and manufactured Rigid Boxes for 30 years, and now rigid boxes have become more and more popular, The reason is simple; Rigid Boxes offer elegance, and elegance never goes out of style. A Rigid Box lets your customer know that something special is inside, and assures them they are buying a quality product. Because of their durability and elegance, customers often keep, save and re-use rigid boxes. When your company logo or name is printed or foil stamped on the exterior, it increases the time in which your customers, and others, see it. For this reason, they are an excellent branding and marketing tool.

Nothing says quality product like quality packaging. Rigid Boxes have no rough edges, no tabs to tuck or insert. They are sleek, uniform, and resilient, even after many openings. Our Rigid Boxes are individually checked for quality so that every box you receive is as perfect as the next.

There is no tooling cost involved with Rigid Boxes. That makes them more affordable than you may think. Why spend hundreds, even thousands, of dollars on dies for other types of packaging?

Foil and holographic papers are just another way to add flare. 

--Gloss Paper

Gloss Paper offers crisp, clean and elegant simplicity. Offered in White, Black or 48 Color choices, it can provide flare without being too bold. Can’t find the perfect color match? We can flood print your gloss paper any color you want.

--Matte Paper

Choose matte paper when you want a soft, natural or earthy look. Matte paper also lends itself nicely to foil stamping and hot stamping to offer up a box your customers are sure to want to keep.

--Foil Paper

Foil papers offer elegance and depth. When your Set-Up Box needs a classy or delicate look, plain or embossed foil papers are a good choice. Available in many colors, embossing patterns, and finishes, bright foils add a clean, modern look while dull foils will make your set-up box look soft and delicate.

--Acrylic Latex Paper

Acrylix Latex paper has a unique and sensual appeal. Its soft matte finish provides a look of understated elegance and sophistication while the rose-petal softness of its surface begs to be touched. Available in black, white, tan, navy and crimson it is ideal for applications requiring tactile richness coulpled with strength.

--Embossed Paper

Whether you choose gloss or matte, you can have the paper embossed. Choose embossed paper for high-end products. Linen, Leather, Crocodile and Ribbed are just a few of the hundreds of embossing patterns available. Embossed paper can take a Set-Up Box from beautiful to exquisite.

--Specialty Papers

Choose specialty papers to give your customer a hint of what’s inside or just for fun. Foil paper, kid’s designs, patriotic, floral, stripes, polka dots…the possibilities are endless. Paper that looks like metal; paper that feels like suede; paper that looks and feels like snakeskin; you are only limited by your own imagination.


Whether you choose to say it simply or scream it boldly, graphics are your opportunity to communicate with the customer. Graphics tell your customer who you are, what’s inside, how to use it, and sometimes, even when to throw it away. Your graphics can be as simple as a one-color line logo or as complex as a four-color photographic image. Foil stamping, hot stamping, and embossing are also available. Varnish, aqueous coating, UV coating, and film lamination can be added when needed or desired.

--Offset Lithography Printing

Add graphics to your rigid box with conventional printing. One- or two-color line art on white or colored paper is the most cost effective. However, the rich four-color photographic images on your rigid box really catch the consumer's eye. You can print just the top of the lid or flood the entire lid and base. Looking for a cost effective way to get your four-color photographic image? Print the entire telescope lid, and leave the base white.

--Foil Stamping/Hot Stamping

Both foil stamping and hot stamping are cost effective ways to say what you want to say and say it with distinction. Stamping has its own unique look that printing cannot emulate. Stamping also adds flare for high-end products. Choose foils for a vibrant, sophisticated look. Choose non foils for a softer, more subtle style.


The art of embossing has been around for hundreds of years without showing any signs of extinction. Throughout the years, mankind has embossed many surfaces such as jewelry and metals, book covers, and legal documents, invitations and stationery. For an elegant, and timeless look, let us raise your graphics through embossing. Embossed patterns can then be foil stamped or left “blind”, the term for embossing patterns that are left unstamped and uncolored. Embossing signals your customers that something stylish is just inside of bags.

All Rigid Boxes consist of a base and a lid, often referred to as a top and bottom, or box and cover. A base is a base. However, not all lids are created equal. You can define your style of box just by the lid you choose. Not sure which to choose? The following is a list of definitions and common uses for each lid style:

Shoe box Lid

A shoe box lid is always 1” deep regardless of base size. The most common example is an actual shoe box lid. Shoes are often stored and sold in a box that consists of a base that is around 4” deep, and a lid that is only 1” deep. Shoe box lids offer easy opening, and are perfect for boxes that are opened and closed frequently.

Telescope Lid

A telescope lid covers the entire base regardless of the base size. A common example of a telescope lid is a candy box lid. Most every box of chocolates has a telescope lid. Telescope lids are perfect when you want a little more protection, and the box is not going to be opened and closed several times. If you like the look of the telescope lid, but know that the box will be opened and closed frequently, ask for “thumb notches” or “thumb holes”. We can notch out a semi-circle to make your boxes open easily every time.

Partial Telescope

Any lid that goes down the base more than 1”, but not the full depth of the base, is a partial telescope lid. Common examples of a partial telescope lid are jewelry box lids and candle box lids. Many jewelry boxes are 1” deep with a 5/8” lid. Some candle boxes are 2-3/4” deep with a 1-3/4” lid. Partial telescope lids are also commonly seen on gift boxes and higher-end product boxes. They offer both charm and practicality to provide a box that’s beautiful, yet easy to open.

Hinged Lid

A hinged lid with embedded magnetic catches is commonly used in repeated use packaging such as a curling iron box or dial indicator box. Easy to open, use, load, and store hinged lids are ideal for boxes that are used for vanity or workbench storage units.
