Brown boxes (AKA Kraft) are great for printing dark and bold colors, but the finished box won’t necessarily have the same color intensity as the online preview. White and lighter colors will not show on a brown box. Our designers will check for lighter colors but if vibrant printing is important on your box then we recommend going with a white or glossy white box material instead. The white or glossy materials produce the highest print quality boxes for all colors, especially lighter ones. Adding the gloss finish will not affect the print but simply adds a shiny coat. This cost considerably more but results in a very premium feel for luxury products.
