What is rigid packaging?

Rigid packaging has long been a staple in the packaging industry and is still being used in new exciting ways. It's defined as any packaging that is unbendable or unable to change shape.  Although flexible packaging offers many additional benefits, rigid packaging may still be the best fit for some projects. 


Typical forms of rigid packaging include folding cartons, corrugated boxes, and clam shells with inserts while materials often used in rigid packaging include hard plastics, paper board, cardboard, glass, and metals.

Types and Benefits of Rigid Packaging

Variations of Rigid packaging:

  • Rigid plastic packaging – plastics are typically used to make clear folding boxes, bottles, clamshells, thermoformed trays, and jugs.
  • Rigid paper folding boxes – made often with high quality SBS (solid bleached sulfate), or paperboard for luxury packaging for items like chocolates, jewelry, and gifts
  • Rigid corrugated boxes – made of corrugated cardboard that's often used for added protection of more breakable items

Benefits of rigid packaging:

  • Rigid materials offer a high level of protection
  • Merchandising needs may require rigid packaging
  • Stiff, heavy materials give the impression of being expensive and luxurious
  • Can be branded with hot stamping, embossing/debossing, coatings, and decorative elements
