Did you follow the packaging trends this past year, or were you a bit of a product marketing and merchandising trail blazer? Before we start counting down the seconds to the ball drop, we’re recounting our most popular confection boxes. See what the stats say and peruse the confection packaging “people’s choice.”


5. Auto Bottoms

Auto Bottoms are basic folding cartons, but they’re a staple for confectioners. The reason is simple — they’re quick and easy to assemble, they pack/stack well, and hold a variety of different kinds of sweets and snacks. They’re also popular to customize with hot foil stamping and imprinting. Check out Tap’s array of Auto Bottom design, size, holiday, and color options.

4. Two-Piece Folding Box

7 different quantity sizes, 4 different lid colors — Gold Foil, Silver Foil, Red Foil, or White. Heart or oval shaped windows give your customers a peek, or be mysterious with plain. Great for custom hot foil stamping or imprinting. These Two-Piece Folding Boxes are double the thickness with rolled edges, so you can be sure your assortments are safe and sound. And the 16-piece quantity size is also available with a clear lid.

3. Artisan Rigid Set-Up / Artisan Rigid Set-Up with “Reveal”

Stunning shimmer and black textures, wrapped in premium materials. A luxury feel. Designed to hold 6, 12, or 24 truffles, but versatile for other assortments. The original Artisan Rigid Set-Up displays one solid color, but its counterpart “reveal” version allows you to mix and match base and lid colors for a more interesting visual merchandising strategy.
