Auto lock bottom box dieline - custom folding carton and packaging solutions

Auto Lock Bottom Boxes

Discover the efficiency and durability of auto lock bottom boxes. The specially designed bottom automatically locks into place, offering a quick and secure assembly process that significantly enhances packing speed. In addition, it ensures a sturdy and reliable structure. Auto lock boxes provide superior protection for your products during transport and display.

Ideal for heavier products, auto lock folding cartons are perfect for candles, large cosmetics, and supplement bottles. It’s important to remember that because the bottom flaps on auto lock bottom boxes are different, you can only print uninterrupted on certain areas.

Straight Tuck End Boxes

Experience the clean, professional look of straight-tuck folding cartons. Straight tuck end boxes have a straightforward design with the same top and bottom flap closures. When the box is laid flat, the flap closures line up parallel to one another. This design offers ease of assembly and opening, making it a popular packaging choice among brands.

Straight-tuck cartons are ideal for light to medium-weight items, making these boxes a good choice for cosmetics, soaps, CBD & vape products, and essential oils. In addition, you can have uninterrupted print on the bottom of the box, which may be helpful if you need to print barcodes on your boxes.

White Paper

An economical and sustainable choice, our White Paper folding cartons are perfect for dry consumer goods. Crafted using a sturdy 18-point paperboard, this material provides strength and design flexibility. Our White Paper Carton is an FBB board (Folding Box Board) without optical brighteners, meaning your print looks as good next week as it does today, even if exposed to direct sun or fluorescent lighting.

Bright White Paper

Our Bright White Paper Cartons stand out as our most favored material choice. Thanks to our optional Moisture and Oil Resistant Coating, the adaptability of these folding cartons extends to products that encounter moisture or oil. The use of optical brighteners in the SBS board displays a brilliant white hue, ensuring that your packaging remains visually striking under various lighting conditions.

For products with high oil or moisture content, our Inside Coating option is recommended to ensure lasting durability and print integrity.

Metallic Paper

Our Metallic Paper cartons captivate attention and convey luxury by offering a unique solution to product packaging. Designed to shimmer like traditional foil, this distinctive material choice is perfect for indoor applications and is particularly favored for products like cosmetics, vitamins, specialty foods, and premium candles, enhancing their shelf presence and consumer appeal.

By applying semi-transparent inks, you can achieve a metalized effect on your folding cartons, making your packaging visually stunning.

Rainbow Holographic Paper

A material with an iridescent finish, our Rainbow Holographic cartons mimic the appearance of traditional foil but add a unique twist with their vibrant, ever-changing colors.
Ideal for indoor applications, this folding carton material is a brilliant choice for CBD products, vitamins, supplements, specialty foods, and premium candles.

Black Vellum Paper

Our Black Vellum paper cartons feature an ultra-black specialty paper that provides a striking backdrop for your product packaging. Ideal for artisan candles, high-end beauty products, and any item requiring a touch of luxury, these cartons ensure that your brand captures attention with unparalleled color contrast and visual appeal.

This premium material is not only a stylistic choice but also an environmentally conscious one, being 100% Blue Bin recyclable, aligning your brand with eco-friendly practices while maintaining a high-end aesthetic.

White Vellum Paper

With an unparalleled premium aesthetic, our White Vellum Paper cartons boast a 97 Brightness and, making it a great choice for packaging that requires a sophisticated presentation.
As our brightest paper option, the White Vellum Paper also has a smooth vellum finish without the need for laminates.

Crafted from premium virgin fiber board, it is an eco-conscious choice, being 100% Blue Bin recyclable and FSC certified.

I found Sttark a couple of months ago needing a 9000 label order. I didn't really know what I was doing since it was my first time designing and producing something of this scale. Sttark was super helpful every step of the way and had really good guides for me to follow. Every time I messed up, had questions, or needed help with something they were super fast and thoughtful with their responses. Seriously one of the best customer services of any business I have ever worked with.If you're a business needing some high quality labels and have people care and help you along the way; go with Sttark. Just look at all these other reviews, I mean common...these are happy customers just like me.

In the 5 years I have been running our spirits company, getting the label designs and printing to where it is now has been possibly the hardest part. Creating a product for the shelf that will attract new customers and also impress people already familiar with your brand is a constant challenge. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Sttark Labels when I did… At this point, it feels more like a partnership than us just ordering labels online. Incredible quality, amazing turnaround time, and even better customer service. The Francis James family appreciates all you do for us, cheers from NJ!

Coming from a design background and not a printing background, their customer service has been very helpful with making sure my files are set properly for the best print job possible. Therefore, in future projects I can keep those printing standards in mind and make it easier for both me and their printing team. Their team is courteous and knowledgable and the print quality has always been top notch. I appreciate their online instant quoter making it easy to order and find the best price/size for my projects. I highly recommend. I have switched all of my client's labeling needs to Sttark.

I help run a cheese company here in Vermont and we have been ordering our labels from Sttark. I have been extremely pleased with them -- high quality materials, color, and printing. Turn around time is fast and I often get the labels even earlier than the estimated date. Our customers always comment on the labels and how striking they are. Also -- their online ordering portal is FANTASTIC and super easy to use, to both create new orders and to just do a basic reorder. It's so hard to find a B2B business that has a great online infrastructure, so this would like be a sixth star if i could.

I have worked with hundreds of companies over my last several decades in business. Because I happen to orbit the marketing sphere and have a passion for it as well, I pay perpetual attention to how companies service their customers. To Date I have never worked with a company that was so Customer service centric. They blow my mind. What’s most amazing though is I can talk to any of the people that answer the phones and I will get the same exact feeling. As a brand manager I know what a brand is. A brand is what it feels like to do business with a company. Sttark hits it out of the park each and every time with each and every one of their staff members. I got so inspired after dealing with the staff working with our labels over multiple orders and multiple interactions, even some troubles we had, that I went back to my team and told them we all need to be as good as Sttark Label. Their ability to turn around labels with speed is mesmerizing as well. And the quality of their products is excellent.
