Shiseido’s ultra luxe skincare and makeup brand, Clé de Peau Beauté, is known for its light-inspired skincare and emphasis on women’s radiance. The brand called on Burt to design a series of limited edition rigid gift sets featuring miniature versions of its cutting-edge products. The result: three unique box styles in custom, mirror-finish gold foil created to communicate the brand’s modern elegance and exquisite quality. A two-piece round box with a collar reveals product nestled in the most luxurious micro-foam; a hinged box with a magnetic closure unveils stunning bottles, and a show-stopping wardrobe style box with a hand-wrapped hexagonal panel unveils skincare products displayed like priceless jewels.

Philip Morris USA
Produced in the USA by Philip Morris, a division of Altria Corp, English Oval cigarettes have a long history as an elegant brand of tobacco. For decades, Burt Rigid Box has manufactured their thin, paper-hinged boxes on proprietary equipment designed and built at Burt during the 1930’s. Close supply chain oversight and attention to quality are hallmarks of the Altria brand. The rigid box design presents a difficult combination of production techniques and showcases Burt’s unique capabilities and ability to meet the highest standards of safety and accountability in its material sourcing.
Coach is a global leather brand that needs little introduction. Three storied companies came together when Burt helped Coach to package a crossover project with Monopoly, the famous American board game. Burt created a custom paperboard box to hold the massive, limited-edition leather board and storage case, and packed out the paper components printed locally by a Burt partner. After counting, banding, and shrink-wrapping the co-branded Coachopoly money and Chance and Community Chest playing cards, Burt packaged them in the oversized rigid boxes decorated with a gold stamped logo.
RéVive skincare is founded on Nobel prize-winning science and the research of a Harvard-trained plastic surgeon. The prestigious brand is driven by its dedication to engineering on a molecular level, and this attention to detail is clear in the clean lines and nuance of its rigid boxes. When RéVive redesigned its packaging several years ago, Burt took on the challenge of producing the entire line of spotless white and silver rigid boxes. Each package features a blind-embossed logo that wraps around the sharp edge of the box, an interior vacuum form tray layered over and masked with an accenting paper that creates a colored “reveal” where the base and lid meet, and a soft-touch or foil wrap that conveys the ultimate luxury of the brand.
Tequila Herradura, made by one of Mexico’s most historic producers, has a proud place in Brown Forman’s family of premium spirits. Burt collaborated on a box design that reflects the brands luxury reputation in a gift set format. The box, done completely in black with crisp silver leafstamping, a reflective silver interior and subtle glossy text, houses a trio of tequilas in a strong die-cut rigid tray. The hinge with ribbon cover stop and acetate window allow buyers to view the tequilas in their unique bottles while they remain protected on the shelf, then enjoy the experience of revealing them in full after purchase.
Burt Rigid Box, Inc.
Displayed on its side so its tremendous height doesn’t overwhelm, this 13” deep rigid box is the redwood of the American paperboard package. Burt owns the only equipment capable of producing a box this deep: a package perfect for special wine, liquor, or spirits. Leaf stamped by Burt in silver foil on the side, base, and lift-off cover, the large format is an excellent canvas for creative branding and eye-catching material like this pearlescent blue paper.
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books, published in the USA by Scholastic, are some of the best-selling novels of all time, inspiring the imagination of adults and children the world over. Burt Rigid Box is pleased to manufacture custom rigid slipcases for this series as well as many other works of popular fiction in both hard and soft cover, including Game of Thrones, the Hunger Games, and Lord of the Rings. Burt’s slipcases are designed to be durable, and can be fulfilled in our factory with books, CDs, DVDs, or a combination, then shrink-wrapped for safe shipment to stores. The finished package is perfect for gifting, display, and most of all, hours of enjoyment.
Creative releases curated and designed by Visionaire, a New York-based organization, bring together luminaries of the art, film, and fashion worlds. Visionaire 64, featuring the work of conceptual artist John Baldessari coupled with modern technology, was presented in three limited, numbered editions, each housed in a box manufactured by Burt. The oversize books and prints fit into heavy-duty rigid boxes covered in a fabric-like wrap and stamped with silver type and one of three vivid primary colors. A black ribbon pull projects from the die-cut interior for portfolio-like access to the contents, and the box base converts into a stand that elegantly displays the heavy, beautiful book.
Lush Cosmetics’ commitments to fresh ingredients and world-friendly practices are just the kind that Burt likes to support. Though Lush strives to minimize their packaging, gift sets like this oversize round box are a worthwhile exception. The bright pink sensations housed thirteen products in a special Tickled Pink collection, and were manufactured in New York on Burt’s custom equipment for local US distribution. Made entirely of paperboard and conventional inks, the box is recyclable and reusable, a perfect keepsake for Lush’s socially conscious customers.
