Cigarette Boxes

These boxes of the cigarettes can be made to have a small or large size depending on the marketing of the cigarette. While most of the companies have standard sizes for their cigarettes, the only thing that changes with the change in the size of the boxes is the number of cigarettes in the pack.

    Cigarette box sizes and their needs

    The cigarette is a product that has been used for many decades and people have been smoking tobacco well before that. The people who smoke cigarette have many different categories just like with the types of cigarettes. Some people like to smoke because of the mental effect it can have on mind as it has nicotine and other compounds which are believed to be addictive. Some other people might just do it as recreation or in groups.

    For each of these types of cigarette smokers, there are different brands available in the market. All of these brands and cigarette types come in packaging of their own specific brands who target the customer base by their type of cigarettes. Some of the brands sell cigarettes in small packaging to attract the customers who like to buy cigarettes occasionally.

    These people do not smoke every day and for that they would buy small packaging so that they can limit their consumption of the cigarettes on daily basis. Some of the customers would want to buy a larger pack for their own smoking. These customers are those who like to smoke regularly and would prefer to have a lot of cigarettes in their pack at all times. All of these reasons are enough for the companies to design their custom-made cigarette boxes.

    Capacity and Size

    Depending on the various factors, the companies would want to sell their cigarettes in different packaging. These boxes of the cigarettes can be made to have a small or large size depending on the marketing of the cigarette. While most of the companies have standard sizes for their cigarettes, the only thing that changes with the change in the size of the boxes is the number of cigarettes in the pack. While some companies have created their packaging in smaller size, they still manage to fit in a good number of cigarettes by cutting on the size of cigarette itself.

    A good example of this is the cigarette brands that specifically target the female audience. The cigarette boxes created for the female customers are lighter and do not contain as much nicotine or tar as the regular cigarettes. This is a marketing strategy from the cigarette companies who like to target their customer base. These cigarettes can be fit into a smaller packaging so that they are easy to carry for ladies in their bags. The sizing of the box of the cigarette is also a good advertisement as people have many different preferences when it comes to the cigarettes.

    Some of the boxes that are small in size could be more expensive as compared to the regular cigarette boxes. The reason for that is the quality of the cigarettes. While some cigarettes can be bigger in size or just have better quality, their prices can rise depending on these factors and more.

    Warning labels and material

    The warning labels on the packaging are a must and most of the governments around the world require the companies to put the warning labels on the packaging of the cigarettes. These warning labels are necessary to make sure that the people understand the harms that the cigarettes can do to their body. Although these warnings should be able to do their job and the sale of the cigarettes should decline, but it does not. In fact, the governments demand that the cigarette companies print the warning labels in the bold words and the pictures of the after effects of the cigarette smoking.

    These warnings should be covering more than the half of the packaging. Despite all of these warnings, people still do not stop their smoking habits and there is no decline in the sales of the cigarette packs. The packing of the cigarettes is done in the small paperboard boxes. These paperboard boxes are than then laminated in the thin plastic covering which saves it from the water or damage. It also saves the cigarettes inside from losing their smell or taste. The tobacco inside the cigarettes is also preserved this way and burns well without getting moist. All the cigarettes in the world almost have the same basic design when it comes to packaging cigarettes.

    Attention grabbing packaging

    It is evident that packaging of the cigarette boxes does not require any special advertisement. It is perhaps one of the products that people would buy no matter what was printed on the box. When it comes to the advertisement of the boxes for the cigarettes most of the companies have the laws where they minimize the exposure to the cigarettes by limiting the advertisement related to the cigarettes.

    The main thing when designing the cigarette boxes is to consider the number of cigarettes that would be kept inside the box. The next thing is to make the box easier to carry as men usually keep their cigarette boxes in their pockets and the women in their purse. The boxes should be compact and easy to carry without squishing the cigarettes.

    If the boxes are not properly covered in plastic, it can damage the product inside. The sizing and the shape of the cigarette boxes is somewhat standard all over the world and beside the colors schemes there is not much change that can be done to the packaging of the cigarettes.
