What Are Kraft Gift Boxes?

These are gift boxes crafted from kraft material. Kraft material is environment-friendly. This can be used as part of your brand promotion as well. Furthermore, kraft offers appreciable protection to the encased items and can be printed on as well. This makes kraft gift boxes an incredible tool for your brand. 

Popular Printing Techniques For Kraft Boxes

Printing techniques are used to transfer the digital artwork onto the kraft gift boxes. Many brands focus solely on the cost when choosing the printing technique. We do not recommend this approach because there are many factors that need to be considered.  Some of the factors include turnaround time, print quality, ability to cater to design changes, and the set up time involved. Dodo Packaging offers the following printing techniques:
  • Digital Printing Technique
  • Offset Printing Technique

Digital Printing Technique

Digital printing is done using an ink jet printer. The advantage of digital printing is that it can cater to small quantities and offers relatively short turnaround times. The disadvantage is that while it offers good print quality, it isn't the best print quality.  On the flip side, it doesn't require any setting up and is quite cost-effective for low-volume orders. In addition, it can cater to design changes without leading to extra costs and any kind of delays. 

Offset Printing Technique

Offset printing uses a four color process where a plate is created from the digital artwork and then printing is done using a cylinder press. The advantage of offset printing is that it offers the best possible print quality for your kraft gift boxes. However, it is only cost-effective for high-volume orders and requires setting up time.  Furthermore, it can't cater to design changes without leading to additional costs and delays in turnaround time.  When you reach out to Dodo Packaging, our experienced staff will help you select the best possible printing technique based on your requirements and budget. 

Color Models For Kraft Gift Boxes

Color models are used to create colors that are then used in conjunction with the printing techniques. Whether you're ordering large kraft boxes or kraft gift boxes with lids, it is crucial that you choose the right kind of color model.  Dodo Packaging offers the following color models:
  • CMYK Color Model
  • PMS Color Model

CMYK Color Model

The CMYK color model is a four-color process that stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key. As the name suggests, these colors are used in conjunction to create different colors.  This color model is widely used in offset printing because it offers brilliant print quality. In addition, this color model offers a wide range of colors. 

PMS Color Model

The Pantone Matching System color model uses numbers to denote spot colors. It features more than 1,000 colors and it is possible to recreate the same color with consistency over different printers when you're using this color model.  However, it can't create color hues that can be created using the CMYK color model. 

Customizing Your Kraft Gift Boxes

Even if you're placing an order for kraft gift boxes wholesale, it is strongly recommended that you opt for customization options to achieve a unique look. Our customization options are given below:
  • Add-Ons That Help Your Kraft Gift Boxes Stand Out
  • Finishing Coats That Grab Your Customers' Attention

Add-Ons That Help Your Kraft Gift Boxes Stand Out

Your brown kraft gift boxes can outshine the competition when you pay attention to the details. Add-ons are small changes that can be made to your kraft gift boxes while keeping their functionality and aesthetic appeal in mind.  Dodo Packaging offers the following add-ons:
  • Window Patching
  • Embossing
  • Debossing
  • Spot UV
  • Hot Stamping

Window Patching

Window patching is a great option for kraft gift boxes because it allows the customer to see the contents of your brown kraft boxes. You can include a logo, a slogan or any other brief description about your company's identity. This add-on is offered at an extra cost and there are no minimum quantity requirements attached with it. 


This add-on makes your kraft brown boxes unique and it is possible to achieve different levels of embossing according to the quantity you order. Embossing adds texture to your box which can be used for branding purposes or simply to provide a more ergonomic feel. 


Debossing is a process where a box is created with a raised surface. This add-on can be used to highlight the contents of your gift brown boxes by adding artwork or logos. 

Spot UV

Spot UV refers to treating a small area on your custom kraft boxes with UV rays. It is often used for brand promotion purposes because it is an inexpensive way to make kraft boxes stand out. 

Hot Stamping

Hot stamping is a process where a metal stamp is heated and used to apply branding or designs on the surface of your brown kraft gift boxes. However, this add-on can only be applied to surfaces that are flat.

Finishing Coats That Grab Your Customers' Attention

You can give your brown kraft boxes a unique look by opting for finishing coats. The following options are available with Dodo Packaging:
  • Matte Finish
  • Gloss Finish
  • Varnish Finish
  • Soft-Touch Finish

Matte Finish

Matte finish or flat finish is a coating that gives your brown kraft boxes a uniform appearance. It is widely used on the lids of gift boxes and it doesn't change the look of your logo or artwork. 

Gloss Finish

You can use gloss finishing for all parts of your custom kraft gift boxes to achieve a shiny look. However, this coating tends to highlight imperfections and it can be time-consuming and expensive during the finishing process. 

Varnish Finish

A varnish finish is a great option for brown kraft boxes because it provides protection from scratches and fading without giving off a shiny appearance. This coat also protects your gift box from absorbing grease and your designs won't be affected by it. 

Soft-Touch Finish

This coating allows the materials to be soft and tactile while adding a matte appearance. It's a great option for brown kraft boxes because it features good resistance against scratching, fading and greying. In addition to this, it is an eco-friendly option that adds no toxicity to the product during the manufacturing process.
