The basic decision is whether you want a matte finish or a gloss finish. Gloss finishes allow for brighter colors but also produce a larger amount of glare under artificial lighting. You can also add the following finishes to your box:
1. Linen: This is a textured pattern that is stitched directly into the box itself. Linen finishes are a nice way to give an upgraded look and feel to your box. They also help to cut down on the glare that results from a gloss finish.
2. Thumb cuts: These are small notches cut into the sides of the box top that allows for easier opening of the box. They can also be cut into the sides of the box bottom to help remove the components from the box if the box is packed particularly tightly.
3. Printing and Paper Lining on the inside of the box is available if you would like to print a design (or text) on the inside of the box top. Printing can be done in color or black and white.
4. Foil stamping, Metallic ink, and Spot UV are additional ways to add a shiny effect to different parts of your box. Foil Stamping and Spot UV are best for larger, broader areas of the box, whereas metallic ink is best to highlight text and other smaller, intricate design features.
