Can I create two sleeves that are the same size but have different artwork? 
Yes, simply select “Multiple Versions” on the price calculator and let us know how many versions you need printed. We will only need one box sent in if they are the same size.
Do we need to add our designs to the template and send the mock up back to you, or do we supply just the images and text to the design team and they add them to the template?
As standard our designer will send you the artwork template for you to add the design and send back to us. If you’d prefer to send you files to us for our designer to create the artwork then this is fine but there may be a small charge.
What does it mean when you say “remove the template before supplying or leave it as a separate layer” in your Artwork Guide?
This is a safeguard to ensure that the template doesn’t accidentally get printed. One file should be supplied with the template lines included and one file with the template removed.
Shall I send my box to you before placing my order?
It is up to you, you can send it to us before or after placing your order.
What will happen once I have placed my order?
Once you have placed your order, we will send you over an order confirmation. Please then send us your box/product for us to create a template for your artwork. When sending your box, please include your order number.
Where shall I send my box to for a template to be made?
Please send your template to Box Sleeve Printing, Unit 4 Stanton Rd Industrial Estate, Stanton Road, Southampton, Hampshire, SO15 4HU. Please mark it for the attention of sales and add you order number to the outside of the box so we can match it up with your order!
What can I use box sleeves for? 
Box Sleeves and Belly Bands can be used for any retail products. Either use them as a band to keep your products neatly together or as a sleeve to sit over your box – either way, use the space to promote your product, company branding and important product information!
How are box sleeves supplied?
You can choose how to have your box sleeves supplied – either taped and flat or taped and made up. If ordering large quantities, the option to have the sleeves supplied taped and made up can slow down the delivery date due to the finishing time required to make up the sleeves.
