COMMON MOBILE PHONE PACKAGING

V. Ryan 2007-2017

 

Mobile phones arrive in the shops in stylish boxes / packaging. This is usually manufactured from card with the insert being made from either lower quality, recycled card or vacuum formed hi-density polystyrene.

Card is popular as it is cheap and can be recycled. Also, colour and images can be applied using a number of printing techniques. Normally the card is lacquered to give the box a gloss / satin finish.

Usually the packages are cuboids in shape as this means that they can be transported and stacked on shelves easily, efficiently using space.
