Providing Quality Folding Carton Packaging since 1982


Structural Packaging Design

Structural Design

It’s no secret that consumers are drawn to products that make an impression. Creative, eye-catching designs are much more likely to inspire buyers to purchase than packages that offer nothing new. General Converting (GCI) features a state-of-the art structural design facility complete with Impact CAD software and a Zund plotter. We can handle any request from duplicating a standard style folding carton or a custom design.

Our structural packaging and prepress services give you the power to let your imagination run wild. Whether you want to create a carton that stands out on the shelf or add functionality to an existing design, our expertise allows us to get creative.

  • If you want a box that is shaped like a boat or a train, we can do that for you!
  • We do not charge for samples or our design work
  • Samples are normally turned in 24-48 hours!

Luxury products such as cosmetics can benefit greatly from a captivating package design. Something beyond a standard square or rectangular box can grab a shopper’s attention and communicate that your brand is something special. However, that’s not the only kind of product that can receive a boost from our capabilities. A carton shaped like a car or rocket ship can be a great way to present a toy for kids, for example.
