Structural samples are blank, unprinted samples of your packaging. They're the most ideal sample if you're looking to test the size and structure of your packaging to ensure it works with your products.
Here's what's included and excluded in a structural sample:
|Custom material||Finishes (e.g. matte, glossy)|
|Add-ons (e.g. foil stamping, embossing)|
Note: structural samples are made with sampling machines, so these samples might be harder to fold and you may see some small creases/tears in the paper.
Process & Timeline
Generally, structural samples take 3-5 days to complete and 7-10 days to ship.
For each structural sample, you will receive:
1 dieline* of the structural sample
1 structural sample delivered to your doorstep
*Note: dielines for inserts are only provided as part of our structural design service.
Structural samples are available for all packaging types.
