PACKAGING

PACKAGING

A great box makes your game stand out on a shelf, and a great tray makes setup and storage easier for players. The best way to start building your packaging components is with the Kylin Template Generator found here.

TWO PIECE BOX

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and the first impression of your game is often the box. Every box at Kylin is custom-made and we offer a variety of thicknesses and finishes to make your box look and feel great. You’ll want a box that’s large enough to contain all of the components without being too big. Pro tip: Make sure your box is at least 15mm larger in each dimension than your largest component so players can easily remove each piece. Your Kylin Project Manager will work with you to determine the best box size for your game.

MAGNETIC BOX

A magnetic box can make a great crowdfunding stretch goal or simply create a premium experience for the right game. We love that satisfying snap! Contact us for a template that matches your project.

TUCKBOX

Does your game only consist of cards and a paper sheet? The best container may be a light, one-piece tuckbox. And tuckboxes make great internal storage for larger games that stress organization and look fantastic. Start with a template from the Kylin Template Generator or work with your Kylin Project Manager to create a tuckbox that meets your needs

CARDBOARD TRAYS

Hey, they might not look like much, but a good cardboard tray helps keep your components organized inside the box and protects your contents during shipping. And who says a tray has to be dull? We can print your tray in full-color, too. Ask for a template that will make your insert something special.

PLASTIC TRAYS

Looking for a deluxe storage experience? Vacuum-formed plastic trays look great while keeping pieces organized for play and storage. Custom component containers make game setup and storage fast and simple. They can also be a bank or resource reserve during the game, keeping everything in place and easy to retrieve. Let our experts help you craft a one-of-a-kind internal organizer.


How to choose components for your custom board games?

Here's a step-by-step guide to help you make informed decisions

Define Game Mechanics

Is it a strategy game, a card game, a role-playing game, or a combination? The type of game will influence the components needed.

Consider Player Interaction

Does the game involve a lot of player-to-player interaction or is it more solitary? This will impact the types and quantities of components needed.

Understand the Theme

Consider the theme of your game. Components should align with and enhance the theme. A word game might focus more on cards and tiles.

Balance Cost and Quality

Balance your budget Determine which components are critical for the game experience and allocate resources accordingly.
