Choosing the Right Bakery Box
GET THE KNOW HOW...
The package will be your customer’s first experience with your product, so it’s important to choose the right package. Below are tips to help you determine the perfect packaging solution!
DETERMINE THE BOX SIZE
It’s a piece of cake! When choosing the right bakery box for a CAKE, first determine what size pad you will be placing your cake on, then find the matching size package. For example: If you have a 9” cake on a 10” pad, you would want to purchase a 10”x10” bakery box. To choose a proper height, add 1” to however tall your cake is.
I’ve got a great “filling” about this! If it is a PIE you are trying to find the right box for, be sure to choose a box that is the same size as your pie. A 9” pie will fit into a 9”x9“ box.
Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes. Finding the perfect package size for your CUPCAKES is based on how large your insert is and how many cupcakes will be placed in the box. If you have a 10”x10”, 6-count insert, place this inside a 10”x10” box.
DECIDE ON THE BOARD/MATERIAL TYPE (substrate)
Below is a short list of some types of Board Material you might choose:
Kraft: Unbleached paperboard with a natural brown color on both sides.
SBS: A premium paperboard that has a durable surface. SBS is white on both sides, perfect for printing.
CCK: A natural look that is cost effective. These boxes have one white side that is clay coated for durability and print-ability and a brown side.
URB: Uncoated board made from recycled paper, usually brown in color. Generally, contains post-consumer waste.
