Discover how our custom cardboard inserts can be an excellent addition to your affordable packaging solutions.

What Are The Best Materials For Crafting Custom Inserts?

We offer several kinds of cardboard materials for bespoke inserts, such as:

White Cardboard: 

  • This material has a clean, professional appearance and is often utilized for its aesthetic appeal, particularly when exhibiting high-end products.

SBS C1S (Solid Bleached Sulfate – Coated One Side): 

  • Known for its smooth, glossy finish on one side, giving a perfect surface for high-quality printing and presentation.

Natural Brown Kraft:

  • An eco-friendly choice created from unbleached pulp that has a natural, rustic appearance while also being strong and durable.

Natural Kraft Board: 

  • Similar to Brown Kraft but with a smoother surface, blending the natural look with a slightly refined appearance of your inserts.


  • A thicker and more sturdy version of cardboard, chipboard is good for heavier items as it provides more protection and stability.

Which Printing Techniques Transform Custom Cardboard Inserts Into Art?

Our broad range of printing techniques for custom-printed cardboard inserts includes:

  1. Digital printing: This quick turnaround method produces full-color, high-quality prints in full color, making it perfect for smaller quantities or complex designs.
  2. Offset Printing: Suitable for elaborate designs and brilliant colors, this approach is ideal for bigger quantities and gives exact and consistent color reproduction.
  3. Flexographic printing: A reasonably priced choice for large orders, particularly for single-color or simple designs.
  4. Screen printing: This technique provides vivid colors and the ability to print on a variety of materials, making it perfect for striking designs and special effects.

Which Finishes Perfect For Your Cardboard Inserts?

PackagingMines provides finishes that can boost wholesale cardboard inserts:

  • Gloss Lamination: Provides a bright, reflecting sheen that enhances colors and acts as a protective layer.
  • Matte Lamination: Adds a classy touch and improves readability by providing a smooth, non-reflective finish.
  • Gloss AQ (Aqueous Coating): Provides a glossy finish with scuff and fingerprint resistance while being environmentally friendly.
  • Gloss UV (Ultraviolet Coating): Adds a high-gloss sheen to the printed graphic, increasing durability and vibrancy.
  • Matte UV: Provides a non-reflective, muted surface that improves readability and adds a tactile sense.
  • Spot UV: Creates contrast and visual appeal by highlighting selected areas with a glossy, raised finish.
  • Embossing: Creates a tactile and visually appealing effect by elevating particular portions of the design to provide texture and dimension.
  • Foiling: Adds luxury and eye-catching accent to the insert by incorporating metallic or colorful foil.

Standard cardboard insert sizes usually vary depending on the packaging they are intended for. However, some common dimensions are as follows:

For Small Products: 

  • Inserts can measure around 2 inches by 2 inches (5 cm by 5 cm) up to 6 inches by 6 inches (15 cm by 15 cm).
