Sturdier, laminated cardboard gift boxes in the foreground


Makers are improving product quality and procurement terms.




  • Lamination on the rise: Water resistance and suitability to any type of paper are prompting more China suppliers to use this technique. It also strengthens boxes and may come in different colors.
  • Improved product quality: Upcoming pieces will have sturdier and smoother fasteners or joints linking several sections together. Laminates will be flatter and free of bubbles. Additionaly, makers are adopting printing techniques that yield sharper colors.
  • Foldable & compact structures: Suppliers are continuing to boost output of small and KD boxes to minimize shipping space and costs. Some pieces are in progressing sizes, allowing bigger ones to contain the others.
  • More manageable terms: Companies are cutting delivery time to 15 days from the previous 20 to 35, and lowering MOQs to 2,000 pieces. In the past, clients had to purchase between 3,000 and 5,000 items at the least.
  • Price forecast: Markups of up to 10 percent are expected in 2H12.
