This box looks like an ordinary die-cut, folded and glued box with a standard bottom … until you try to open the lid.
The lid is glued shut! Glue dots are applied to perforated tabs (see image below) on both sides of the lid so the contents cannot be removed before sale.
The alternative to having glue dots on perforated tabs (to protect the product contained inside) is to wrap the box in cellophane like the box pictured below was.
To open the box, the user simply slides a finger between the box and the lid to tear the perforations. The lid opens and the glued tabs stay glued to the box. The lid can then be easily opened and closed repeatedly.
The image below shows the die-cut sheet before it is folded and glued.
If your customer has a food product that they want to keep secure until purchase without using a plastic or cellophane wrapping, call us!
