The G790 is the just the right size for holding a golf ball marker and is particularly suited for retail display and shipping.

Hinged boxes are a classic choice for earrings, pins, necklaces and other wearables. Our square hinged boxes, like the 1×1 square or 2×2 container, which work especially well with a flockboard insert, are ideally suited to hold earrings, necklaces or pins. Their locking feature keeps items secure and their crystal clear sides allow the product inside to shine.

For other accessories, our G1110 is a favorite for storing dramatic faux lashes. And our hinged boxes come in such a broad array of sizes that they can serve as home for Halloween and cosplay accessories like fangs, tiaras, long claws and nails. The hinges provide easy open-close access and the clear sides make contents easy to find when they’re needed.

Craft Supplies

Our clear, hinged compartment containers have up to 18 individual compartments, perfect for filling with collections of buttons or other crafting supplies like needles, scissors, threads, and pins.

What better way to organize, showcase, and store tiny parts like beads, foam pieces, “googly eyes”, sequins, pompoms and other specialty items? Our boxes are recyclable and fully reusable, increasing their value over other types of packaging.

Retail isn’t the only industry where our hinged boxes stand out. Dentists love them for teeth and crowns, from our tiny 1×1 inch hinged plastic container, to larger boxes like the G1550 or the G2280.

Our dental customers appreciate the flexibility to insert their own custom-crafted interiors to keep cuspids separate from molars and incisors, or to separate orthodontic bands by color and resistance.

Consumers may be more familiar with the soft plastic containers for housing their bridges and retainers at home, but professionals in the dental and orthodontics industries know that delicate components need to be secured and protected during shipping. Our boxes are sturdy, durable, easily stacked, and can withstand the unpredictable conditions of shipping and handling.

From the tiniest microchip to the most high-end medical equipment, we have boxes designed to preserve and protect.

Our hinged ESD boxes are specially designed for expensive, delicate, and high-end equipment and can be custom imprinted with the ESD symbol on each box. Imprint additional information to suit your specific application, including your company name and address, logo and even product-specific details.

Combine these boxes with a variety of foams to protect sensitive items, including the traditional pink static dissipative foam, as well as a high, medium, and low density black conductive foam for superior product protection.

Create collections of treats in a presentation worthy of a hostess gift, party favor, special event, holiday, or just an everyday special surprise. These boxes lend themselves to being shrink wrapped and decorated for special occasions – think red and green for Christmas, or red-white-and-blue for Fourth of July celebrations.

All of our boxes are food safe and BPA free, so your edible products will be displayed beautifully, contained safely, and delivered without crushing or breakage.

One of our smallest boxes, the G702 in a two-compartment configuration, is a favorite for medical hearing aids. Or choose one of our single compartment containers for storing everyday hearing accessories like wax earplugs.

Couple them with custom inserts to create the perfect environment for safely transporting and storing these important items, and ensuring that they remain clean and safe from contamination by dust or other debris. Hinges make it easy for your customers to access the contents of the box, and their clear sides keep contents visible.

Since our boxes are injection-molded, they are formed seamlessly, which makes them resistant to cracks, breaks, and weaknesses that plague products that are glued together. That makes them just as functional for lab use in the biosciences as they are for consumer use.

With sturdy hinges, they are easily opened and closed without breaking or spilling contents. They’re available in many sizes and shapes, with one or more compartments, as well as in a variety of translucent colors that can be used to categorize lab samples.

These unique boxes are resistant to corrosion, heat, compression, and organic impregnant, which makes them superior to other plastic options.

Baking Decorations

Our compartment containers are an ideal choice for tiny confections, from sprinkles to edible glitter, sanding sugar, confetti and other baking supplies. Divide items by type, color, or size for an attractive and elegant display in a fully recyclable, reusable, and food safe container.

Compartment containers in variable configurations can also hold other decorating necessities, like icing bags and decorating tips. Products can be safely shipped, enticingly displayed, safely stored, and easily accessed with a flip of the self-locking lid.

These are just some of the ways that our rigid hinged plastic boxes are used and reused to store, ship, protect, and display products across myriad industries.
