The material and its thickness for plastic packaging for gifts

In general, clear box packaging plastic materials are mainly divided into two kinds according to the transparency: one is clear material, the other is frosty material.

According to the usage of your products and product effect you want, you can choose the suitable material.

For Clear Material of clear box packaging plastic

If you want the clients can see the inside products clearly, it is better to use plastic clear box packaging. Let me tell you what kind of clear material you can use to do the plastic box clear packaging.


PVC is the material that we used the most frequently. It is not food grade material, it can’t touch the food directly. So clear pvc boxes was often used for electronic or daily products cause PVC is hard and it is the cheapest material.


PET is Eco-friendly material and it can touch the food directly.

If your product is food, you should use PET material, like clear plastic cake box packaging. If your country have strict requirements for Eco-friendly, PET clear plastic packaging boxes is your best choice.


PETG is higher Eco-friendly level than PET. From the appearance, you can’t see the difference between PET and PETG.

PET requires high MOQ, the MOQ for PETG is 1 ton at least and the price is higher than PET. We suggest you can use PET clear packaging box.

Clear PP

The original color of PP is frosty effect. But PP also can do clear effect. PP also belong to Eco-friendly materials.

PP material will be softer than other material, it can’t resist high temperature condition. Therefore, PP is generally not used to do cylinder packaging, but used to make plastic packaging boxes.

For Frosty Material of plastic box clear packaging

If you don’t want to show the inside products completely, frosty material is your best choice. Frosty material plastic box packaging only can see the shape of the products roughly.


PP is frosty effect material. It is also Eco-friendly material.

But PP is not very hard. When you bend the PP and other material, you will feel PP is softer than other material. Clear PP material can be used to do the clear plastic packaging box for food and clear plastic boxes for gifts. If the your product is colorful, frosty pp plastic box packaging will suit for your product perfectly.

Frosty PVC

The original color of PVC is clear. But PVC also can do frosty effect.

If you want cheap material, frosty PVC is cheaper than frosty PP.

The Comparison Between Different Material

In order to make you have a clearer understanding for the material(plastic boxes for packaging information), here attach a form about the material comparison. Wish it can be helpful to you.

The meterial thickness

The material we used frequently for clear plastic box packaging is from 0.3-0.45mm. If you don’t know what thickness you should use, please tell us the size you need and the wight of inside products, we can give you professional suggestions according to your info.

The box structure style for transparent clear box

Clear plastic packaging box have a lot of different structures, the first thing for plastic box information you need to know is about the box style/structure.

When we do the transparent plastic box, we use the die-cut machine to cut the plastic sheet and use glue to glue the box. Because we will array the die-cut of the plastic box in one plastic sheet, this is what we called composing. The box structure will affect the composing which will effect the cost of raw material. Different structure will have different composing, so the price would be different.

If the clients don’t say what structure of the box they want, we will quote the toothpaste structure box cause it is the cheapest box structure. If you want to know more about the structure of the clear packaging box for your products, you can leave a message or contact us. Now, let me introduce more box structure for you.

Normal Structure/Toothpaste Structure

Toothpaste structure box is the box structure we used most frequently in the packaging market. It is also the cheapest structure box because of the composing. You can put your products into the box from top or bottom.

This structure of the box can be used to hold some small or relatively light weight products, such as clear plastic eyelash packaging box. If the product is too heavy, the lid at the bottom can easily be squeezed open by the product, and then the product is in danger.

Semicircle bottom Structure

The top and the bottom is semicircle structure.

The advantage of this box is the stable bottom. It is stronger than toothpaste structure box but it needs more time to assemble the clear plastic packaging box of this structure.

If you think it is difficult for your customer to open the box and get the product , you can also choose to do the toothpaste structure on the top of the box and the semicircle structure at the bottom of the box.

Two end semicircle Structure

As you can imagine from the name, both of the top and bottom are semicircle structure.

This kind of structure is very stable and usually it is used for big size box.

If the size of the clear packaging box you need is big, it is better to use this structure for the strong bottom.

Snap Lock Structure

The lid is toothpaste structure and the bottom is snap lock structure.

This structure is very easy to fold and assemble. Normally this structure is used for light weight products, such as clear box plastic cookies packaging.

Auto-Lock Structure

This kind of box can save your time for assembling the products.

You just need to press it into square shape and put products inside, then close the lid.

But it is complicated for us to produce the box, the price will be higher because of the more labor time. The very popular funko pop clear plastic packaging box is the box with this structure.

Pillow Box

The structure of the box looks like a pillow, so it is called pillow box or pillowcase.

The arc-shaped appearance make the box look fashionable. You will feel good when you touch the box. In addition, the pillowcase is also very simple to assemble, which can save a lot of time.

This kind of pillow box is suitable for small size products. Clear pvc plastic pillow packaging box it not only can show the product, but also can improve the inside products’ level and make the products look interesting.

Circle corner lock bottom box

The lids of this box is the toothpaste structure, but there is a small buckle on the lids, so that the lids can not be easily squeezed open by product.

The four corners of the clear plastic packaging box are rounded, so you don’t need to worry the corners will hurt your hand.

Match box or sleeve box

The box is a combination of a sleeve and an inside box, so there is no lid at top and bottom of the box. If you want to open the box, you can push the inside box towards both ends.

This structure of the box is generally used to as plastic packaging for gifts, or some more high-end products.

The printing craft that can use

The commonly used printing craft are the silk screen printing and the offset printing ( CMYK ). These two printing craft can meet the clear packing box printing needs of most customers.

Silk Screen Printon Plastic Clear Box

It uses the silk screen in Manroland/Roland Printer Machine to print the ink on the Clear Printed Plastic Box.

Only one color can be printed at each time, and the other color can be printed after the ink is dry. Usually silk-printed boxes can be printed with less than four colors. If you prefer the simple style of box printing, silk-printed boxes are a good choice.

Due to the printing ink and air drying ink by manual (not directly exposed to the sun, is in the Screen Engraving Machine to lay the printed PVC/PET plastic sheet, and then let the ink dry), so it takes a certain amount of labor and time.

In the case of a small order quantity of clear plastic folding boxes ( about 3,000 pieces – 50,000 pieces), the price of screen printing clear boxes will be cheaper than the price of offset printing clear plastic packaging boxes.

Offset Printing on plastic packaging boxes

It is also called CMYK, it is the craft of using the Heidelberg printer machine to print what you want on the PVC/PET plastic sheet material.

It can print many colors at the same time, so you can get the less labor and time, but the start-up cost is relatively high.

Generally four or more colors will be used CMYK, gradient color printing also belongs to offset printing. Offset printing is suitable for multiple colors’ printing, large quantity of orders requiring mass production, as well as the printing of RGB colors. In fact, RGB colors are just display colors. If you want to print them on the clear PVC boxes, you can only use offset printing craft.

In addition to the above two commonly used printing crafts, if you have the special requirements for printing craft, Agreen Packaging also can make the Silver/Gold Hot Stamping, UV spot, Embossing on clear packaging box.

Silver Hot Stamping on clear plastic gift boxes

Through the principle of hot press transfer, the metal plate is heated, foil, then to print silver words or patterns on the printed matter.

Because the main material used for silver stamping is anodized aluminum foil, so silver stamping is also called anodized aluminum stamping

On the surface, it looks silvery. People will be easy to notice the words of the silver stamping part on the plastic box packaging. So customers usually choose to make the logo printing with silver hot stamping.

Silver Hot Stamping has good weather resistance and high temperature resistance, the fastness is also very good, and can maintain a long silver light.

Gold Hot Stamping on clear plastic box gold packaging
