How to order, measure and get a quote for your custom made gift boxes?


Measuring your gift box is easy:

We always use the following inside dimensions:

Length (longest side) x width (shortest side) x height (top to bottom) of the inside of the base of the gift box.

Always have these dimensions ready measured in millimeters (mm).


Another item to measure on the box is the lid lip (the overhang of the lid over the base of the box, also in mm).

Our gift boxes are normally done in 550 or 1200 micron board and is sturdy (not a fold-up gift box).

Your gift boxes can be either lined in white or black matt paper on the inside as the standard (WE NEVER manufacture boxes with a raw (grey) inner), or you may choose to cover the inside of your box in any paper type available. 

The outside of the gift box can be covered in any of our standard paper types available, and subject to the size of the box, we can add custom branding like screen-printing or hot foil stamping on the lid of the gift box.

Standard Ordering Process and MOQcandle boxes soy

For custom made to specification gift boxes orders, we start at a minimum quantity of 100 units with an approximate minimum lead time of 15 working days.  

Orders over 600 boxes, or complex orders that include things like inserts, custom colour prints, foiling, foam inserts or any other custom modifications may take longer to make, please take this into account when placing your order - we will check the production schedule and confirm a due date with you that may take up to 20 - 25 working days. 

The reason for this is that external companies are used to create our foiling blocks, or if we have to print, the prints have to fall into another production line waiting list before it arrives at the box factory.  these things may extend the time frame in which we are able to complete orders. Should you need your order quickly, please try and keep it as simple as possible!
