I am having a hard time believing that these are not readily available.

I am looking for a vector art template for a trading card storage box. Similar to the one pictured here:


I have found several for tuck boxes but I am looking for something closer to the above.

I work for a custom printing company and would like to design and print my own storage boxes for the card games that I have. I can't be the first person who wanted to do this. Anyone got a pointer to someplace that would have them or has one they are willing to share?

I don't, but I'd be very interested in some non-standard sized boxes if you set up a little side business:

- Mini american/euro cards
- Sleeved cards comfortably
- Square 70mm cards

Food for thought!

I had the same problem. I work with a few large printers and ended up realizing that a ink cartridge or maybe charge cartridge box was a prefect card size...

Here is a great site for custom boxes.

Okay this is really hard to see (I'm crap at drawing programs), but here's a rough template:




A= Short edge of card length + about 1/2" extra
B= Long edge of card + 1/2" extra
C= Height of stack + extra (as much as you want but I'd recommend at least 3/4" extra
D= Thickness of 2 layers of the box material (one for the "permanent" front flap, and another layer for the 1/4 circle "ears" on the lid)

You've got a little tab and Hole to accommodate the folding process, but if you're gluing the box ends, you can probably skip that.

Ok I have a v1 cut path that I have developed and will be testing when I have a chance. Once I have a working setup I will put it up for people to use. Thanks for the start Andrew!

Here is the current box that I am using.


So far works really well.

Here is a link to a vector version of the file:

Hello.
I'm searching a template to make a box like this:



I like it, because it has two rows, but if appears one with three or more... it will be ok.

Good day all

I hate to bump an old thread but I feel it may be the most relevant to my question.

A bit of backstory: about 15 years ago, I started playing the ST:CCG card game. Decipher released a series of cards called the Official Tournament Sealed Deck. It was (6) boxes, each with an affiliation logo on the top, with a bunch of cards inside. This is what they looked like:

http://stccg1e.wikia.com/wiki/Official_Tournament_Sealed_Dec...

The box itself is a design I haven't seen since. The bottom is merely a square. The top is 4 sided with a top and no "moving" parts - it merely slides down over top of the bottom. Example of a bottom:

http://www.categoryonegames.com/products/search?q=otsd+botto...

What I have been looking for are boxes designed in that way but blank. But alas, to no avail. Decipher clearly contracted SOME company to do this. It's also not such a crazy design that its "Decipher specific."

I'm wondering if anyone around these parts has either a) seen something like this or b) has figured out a way to make something like this.

Any advice or whatnot would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton everyone
Have a great day!!

Hey Andrew,
Thanks for responding. Much appreciated

I actually saw those in my search. Sooo close. What I am looking for...the sides of the top piece are longer and go to the base of the box bottom.

Basically, the box bottom that I linked? The top is the exact same .. though I suspect slightly larger to accommodate the thickness of the bottom piece.

I saw the thread in the DIY section on making cardboard boxes. My issues are I'm not terribly handy/crafty and I want to make 25 tops and bottoms haha. Miiiight take some time
