The folding carton is the most popular packaging box to date. They are so popular, in fact, that we have an entire blog post highlighting them.


In its history, the folding carton came into existence in the 1800s and back then were only used for expensive and luxury products. Back then, pins and strings would hold everything together – we’ve come a long way to say the least! Now this industry is roughly worth more than $100 billion.


We use paperboard in the manufacturing of folding cartons, which is a thick paper-based material. LeKAC offers many options in terms of finishing, and unlimited possibilities in terms of colour. Choose from white, Kraft, or even food-grade paperboard as your base, and then go from there. Versatility is the biggest advantage for this type of packaging as you can use the folding carton in any industry, such as:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Makeup
  • Fine Foods
  • Tea & Coffee


Another major advantage of the folding carton is the shipping ability as they have the ability to ship flat to the consumer. These boxes are easy to assemble and commonly come in one piece. Folding cartons are perfect for packaging products of all sizes and can also help market your business.


There are many other advantages to using the folding carton of course. Some of these advantages include:

  • Printing Capabilities
  • Rigidity and Freedom of Structure
  • Unlimited Detail Options
  • Sustainability
