Paperboard Folding Cartons

Paperboard folding cartons are an ideal packaging medium for consumer products because of their billboard space, decorative options, protective properties, and sustainability attributes.

A well-designed package that surprises or delights consumers adds distinction and reinforces the premium positioning of an upscale or luxury brand.

Utilizing state-of-the-art technologies, Diamond Packaging designs and manufactures innovative:

Leading Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) brands continue to incorporate packaging embellishments because it wins at the First Moment of Truth (FMOT) and increases the value proposition of their product.

Diamond employs advanced printing and decorative effects to achieve greater impact in the crowded retail environment (in-store and online):

These effects create a compelling visual display that engages consumers and increases the value proposition being offered.

Sustainable Folding Cartons

The ongoing trend towards more sustainable packaging with higher recycling rates has increased demand for paperboard over the last several years.

Paperboard is the most recyclable substrate in the market. In fact, the paper recovery rate was nearly 68% in 2022, and accounts for 66.5% of municipal solid waste (MSW) recovered for recycling in the U.S.

When you consider the aesthetic, protective, and sustainable properties of paperboard, it’s the natural choice for environmentally friendly packaging.
