Folding carton packaging

The folding carton market is set to reach over $100 billion by 2020 (1), folding carton is seen as one of the most sustainable packaging.

The way brands design, pack and distribute packaging is changing and they request converters to deliver more sophisticated folding carton packages to stand out on the shelves and engage with their consumers in new ways.

Color consistency, spot varnish, hot-foiling, embossing, innovative designs, easy opening and closing are becoming mainstream requests. BOBST’s decades of experience make a difference in protecting the goods while promoting them cost effectively.
