Three Major Uses of Folding Cartons

The folding carton is a staple of the packaging industry. It is created from paperboard that is then folded, cut, printed, and laminated in order to be transported to a variety of manufacturers for their business packaging needs. They can also be sold in retail stores for customers to use in their own homes for their personal needs. They are shipped completely flat to the manufacturer and are then folded into their proper state to fit the manufacturer’s needs. Folding cartons have a variety of uses, the most common of which are discussed below.
