You can discover a box shape several times in our shop: the sliding box (drawer box). Because of its extremely easy to assemble and use characteristics, the practical all-rounder Sliding Box has become the most commonly used structure for product packaging. In this article, let’s dive into what is sliding box is and then move on.


What is Sliding Box?

To understand the principle of a sliding box, it is enough to imagine a certain box known to all: the matchbox. Just like them, our sliding boxes consist of a slipcase and an associated slot for pushing into each other, which is why the boxes can also be called slipcase boxes or drawer boxes. The slipcase is either open on both sides or closed on one side. Depending on the budget, the lower part is either rolled up or equipped with a hollow wall.


What Are Sliding Boxes Suitable For?

Due to the robust construction of the custom sliding box and the use of individual inserts, there are hardly any limits to this box in terms of filling material and intended use. Whether as an attractive jewelry box or cosmetic packaging, as an original mailing for customers and business partners, or for the packaging of electronic goods such as USB sticks, mobile phones, and CDs – sliding boxes always form a noble frame.

The sliding box is also suitable for shipping as well as packaging for advertising materials, brochures, documents, or writing pads. For this version, the box is usually produced with a stronger cardboard.


What Types of Sliding Boxes in the Market?

We manufacture sliding boxes either in carded form and with a hollow wall. The slider box has a folded double outer wall, while the hollow wall boxes have an integrated hollow edge. In the following, we will introduce you to the four different variants of this bestseller in more detail covering the advantages of each sliding box type:

Sliding boxes are practical and are also suitable for sensitive products – when combined with an inlay. Thanks to custom inlays, even multi-part or fragile products arrive safely at their destination.
