How should you design them?
Use high-resolution imagery. These stacking cubes are representing you and your products. High-resolution imagery will ensure that your brand looks its best on large formats.
When designing your stacking cubes, make sure that all of the important information is on them and is legible.
Lastly keep the design simple and eye-catching.
While we are on the topic of design, for the best results, use professional design software such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator.

B-Flute The flutes give strength and structure to the boxes, serving as a protector, insulator and cushioning device. B-Flute is a 3.2mm thick corrugated fibreboard material that provides a sturdy, rigid surface for printing.
Are the stacking cubes strong enough to support items?
Yes, they are. Our B-Flute material is the stronger option when it comes to supporting the weight of heavier items. With a thickness of approximately 3.2mm and shorter flutes, these stacking cubes will still provide a rigid, flat surface for printing.
What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
The stacking cube is a lesser known tool used for display advertising. It is widely used for it’s multi-faceted surface and tactile nature.
Scottish-born Robert Gair invented the pre-cut paperboard box in 1890 – flat pieces manufactured in bulk that folded into boxes. Gair discovered that by cutting and creasing in one operation he could make prefabricated paperboard boxes. Applying this idea to corrugated boxboard was a straightforward development when the material became available in the early 20th century.(Source)
