Our wire stitched boxes are made from solid cardboard sheets source in Great Britain. Unlike corrugated cases, we have several standard material options and thicknesses and three types of wire stitching.

Box material options

  • Unlined Chipboard (or ‘Greyboard’ boxes)
    • 850micron
    • 1000micron
  • Kraft lined (boxes made with a recycled core and acid free, neutral pH Kraft paper lining on two sided)
    • 1000 – 1900micron
  • White lined boxes (recycled core with white laminated lining on one side)
  • Solid, fully dyed white board
    • 1220micron
  • Poly-coated, black lined board
    • 1100micron
  • Solid, fully dyed black board
    • 1250micron
  • Poly-coated, brown lined board
    • 1100micron
  • Acid/Lignin free/Calcium carbonate buffer solid archival box board in blue/grey
    • 1300micron

Wire stitching options

  • 0.8mm Alloy wire stitched (general all-purpose use, chrome in colour)
  • 2.5mm Alloy wire stitched (heavy duty use, chrome in colour)
  • 0.8mm Brass wire stitched (archiving, archaeological use, gold/brass colour)

Box Finish options

A plain wire stitched cardboard box does have its own appeal, but we also offer three alternative finish options to add a touch of personalisation;  

  • Hot Foil blocked boxes – one colour or ‘blind’ impression, usually made in the lid using a hand-press. Our foil supply partner has one of the largest ranges of hot stamping foils available.
  • Paper laminated boxes – a decorative fine paper mounted onto a plain cardboard substrate
  • Printed boxes – your artwork digitally or screen printed onto a plain cardboard substrate

Please note that…

The die/stamp is manufactured to your logo artwork (high-resolution PDF). There is a one off cost for the die to be created, which is invoiced on the first order

Paper laminated and printed boxes are subject to minimum quantity orders.


Samples available on request – if you need to see a sample of your box before making a decision, please don’t hesitate to ask – we hardly ever charge for this service. We hope you will appreciate that we cannot provide personalised free of charge samples i.e. printed or foil blocked with your artwork.
