Your advantages at a glance

FEFCO 0201 Faltkarton

High quality

With FEFCO 0201 boxes, you know exactly what packaging you're getting. But that's not the only standard we meet. Because with our high-quality materials and production processes, we ensure the highest quality all around

Versatile use

Folding cartons are used in various industries, mainly as shipping boxes. However, they are also ideally suited as primary packaging for sensitive products.

Cartons from Germany

We at packaging warehouse produce exclusively in Germany. This way we keep your supply chains as short as possible - and you contribute to the protection of the environment and the preservation of local jobs.

Sustainable packaging

With our corrugated cardboard folding cartons, you can rely on a paper-based and therefore very sustainable solution. Depending on your configuration, the corrugated cardboard boxes are up to 100% recyclable.


The FEFCO-ESBO-CODES serve as an internationally valid standard for the classification of corrugated and solid board packaging. The coding system was developed as early as the 1960s by the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers (FEFCO) - with the aim of breaking down language barriers in the European corrugated board industry. However, the codes are now in use worldwide and, since the participation of the European Solid Board Organization (ESBO, formerly ASSCO), also include packaging made of this very material. Today, the FEFCO catalog contains about 200 packaging materials, each of which has a unique identification code. Learn more about FEFCO codes here.

Folding cartons according to FEFCO 0201: assembly & set-up

What is a FEFCO 0201 folding carton?

FEFCO 0201 folding cartons are extremely simple in design and consist of only one piece of corrugated cardboard. At its factory edge there is a flap, which is glued to the opposite edge of the carton. This step takes place during production - so we deliver your cartons pre-glued and ready for use.

Along the lid and bottom opening are four flaps. When setting up and closing, you simply fold them inwards - first the two closures on the wide side, then those on the long side.

Important: The carton flaps do not catch. Without additional bonding, they do not provide a firm hold for the carton contents. To pack your goods securely, you will therefore need a parcel or strapping band.

Structure FEFCO 0201 folding cartons

What distinguishes folding cartons?

Folding cartons are mainly used as shipping packaging in e-commerce - it does not matter whether B2C or B2B. Also, the robust corrugated cardboard boxes are used as product packaging, especially as a solution for fragile and sensitive goods.
Folding cartons are a popular packaging choice for a number of reasons. In addition to their excellent protective properties, the ease of handling, the wide range of design options and the sustainability aspects are the key factors with which corrugated cardboard boxes are able to convince.



The transport routes taken by goods in e-commerce are often long, bumpy and so always associated with a certain risk - especially with regard to sensitive goods. However, this can be minimized very easily with the right choice of packaging.

Corrugated cardboard is convincing here for several reasons. One of the main advantages is the high protective performance with only very low material consumption and own weight. Because although corrugated cardboard consists of several, but very thin layers of paper, the material has excellent barrier properties.

Firstly, the corrugated walls form a multilayer barrier against external influences such as moisture, dirt and UV rays. Secondly, the inner corrugated layer (along with its cavities) forms a buffer zone that effectively absorbs scratches and impact damage.

Goods protection is one thing, environmental protection often another. But with our FEFCO-0201 folding cartons, it's easy to ensure both at the same time. Because corrugated cardboard not only forms a robust shell, but also scores points with regard to recycling.

On the one hand, all corrugated cardboard in our range consists of 99% recycled waste paper - the remaining percentage is accounted for by newly added virgin fibers. On the other hand, the material is nevertheless fully recyclable again after use.

The various recycling codes on the packaging also provide precise information on what material a product is made of and how it can be properly recycled.

At packaging warehouse you have a wide choice of different materials, so that you can create the perfect packaging for every application.

There is plenty of room for your creative ideas. Because our folding cartons are fully printable. Your designs may therefore also extend to the inner surfaces and flaps of the boxes.

Thanks to digital printing, it is even possible to personalize each individual box, for example with a greeting formula or a short thank-you note with a personal address - in this way, you are guaranteed a great unboxing experience.

Configuration & Design

With our online configurator you have a practical tool at hand that guides you step by step through the configuration of your desired boxes. In addition to the required number of pieces, you also inform us of all the essential specifications of your packaging, from the material to the finishing.
The price always remains transparent and updates automatically with each of your entries. This means that you always have a clear view of the costs during configuration. This also gives you the opportunity to compare the prices of different packaging options.



For our FEFCO-0201 folding cartons, we use different corrugations, all of which have their own special characteristics:

  • The E flute is a fine flute with a thickness of 1.5 millimeters. It is particularly suitable for product packaging or weights of up to 7 kilograms. It is available in three color variations - white/white, white/brown and brown/brown (outside/inside).


  • The B flute is a 3 millimeter thick fine flute and carries weights of up to 14 kilograms. This makes it ideal for packaging light to medium-weight products. It is available in three versions, white/white, white/brown and brown/brown.


  • The EB flute is a double flute consisting of one E and one B flute. This results in a thickness of around 4.5 millimeters and a load capacity of up to 32 kilograms. The material is thus perfectly suited for heavy contents. The EB flute is only available in one color, white or brown.

The basic design of the folding cartons is standardized by the FEFCO code. However, the format is variable. You can therefore decide on the dimensions of the cartons individually. However, the following minimum and maximum values must be observed:

  • Length: 50 to 700 mm
  • Width: 50 to 500 mm
  • Height: 50 to 600 mm


Note: For technical reasons, the maximum values mentioned can not always be combined with each other. If your desired dimensions are not realizable, our online configurator will inform you directly.



Even though both printing processes deliver an excellent print image, there are smal ldifferences between digital and offset printing. As a standard, we decide which printing process to use based on the size of the print run.

In this way, we can pass on the advantages of both techniques to our customers: The offset process, for example, is more cost-effective and time-efficient for larger print runs. Digital printing, on the other hand, offers a time and cost advantage for short and medium runs.

Another factor is variable print data. Unlike the offset process, digital printing makes it possible to print changing designs within just one print run. Additional tooling costs are not incurred thanks to digital data transmission.

The surface properties of corrugated cardboard can be optimized very easily with the help of finishing.  One of the most common methods, for example, is the application of a transparent protective coating or lamination. These two finishes offer several advantages at the same time:

On the one hand, coated materials are more resistant to moisture, dirt, scratches and light-induced color fading. On the other hand, coatings and laminates also influence the visible and tangible material properties.

With packaging warehouse, for example, you have a choice of varnishes and laminates with either a matte or glossy look, as well as a soft-touch laminate that provides a particularly pleasant touch sensation.



1. Configure folding cartons: The first step is to open our online configurator. There you define the order quantity, the dimensions of the cartons and all other desired specifications.

2. Edit print template: Once you have completed your configuration, our print template will be available for you to download. To edit it, you can use any graphic program, such as Adobe Illustrator.
