Structural Design and Prototyping

Making a visual impact is important for a successful brand. Ritter’s Printing & Packaging understands that your paperboard boxes and folding cartons need to be custom-created with only the highest quality materials and a keen eye for details. A good first impression is critical when competing for shelf space.

Design is only one part of the package creation process. Once you’ve settled on what you’d like it to look like, we turn the design into a fully functioning prototype sample to check its structural integrity. This means you’re able to inspect and feel your carton way before it ever goes to print. This is where having a team of experts on your side makes all the difference—we’re able to quickly produce high-quality samples in-house that you can use for tradeshows, events, stakeholder approvals, photoshoots, and more.

To make the prototyping process even easier, Ritter’s design team is there during every step of production. This enables you to visualize what your package will look and feel like while also giving you the ability to easily make any essential changes on the spot.

How to Measure your box

The three standard dimensions are length, width, and depth.

Make sure to note that these measurements refer to the interior or inside area of the box.

You may want to add some clearance to each side of your product dimensions, depending on how you want it to fit inside the box.

Printing and Finishing touches

Decorative effects and finishes communicate so much more than just good design. Ritter’s has many options to help enhance your packaging to improve shelf appeal. Engaging tactile or visual effects can boost your design and improve the opening experience. Soft-touch film lamination can provide a luxury feel well before any visual cues. Metallic foils highlight strong identity and messaging. Cutout windows offer a glimpse of the interior. Ritter’s has these tools and more to elevate ordinary packaging to the next level.
