REVISION TIPS – TRY TO FOCUS ON THE INFORMATION WHICH IS RELEVANT TO THE COLLECTING MONEY FOR CHARITIES THEME!
REVISE IN A QUIET AREA AND MAKE SURE YOU RE-READ ANY AREAS WHICH YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT
ASK A FRIEND OR A FAMILY MEMBER TO ASK YOU QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR REVISION

THE CHARITY LOGO BEING SUPPORTED
MADE OUT OF CARD
WHAT DO THESE CHARITY BOXES HAVE IN COMMON?
Easy to assemble, carry
Easy to read font, silhouette of
an image used without the use
of too much detail.
Easy to insert money,
High quality graphics printed
onto card using offset
Graphics protected with
Made out of card, plastic
(PVC – Polyvinyl chloride)
Bright, contrasting colours
Example of a surface development (net)
Tongue to hold the lid down.
Flaps push against the top to give a better grip, as the tongue presses harder against front of box.
Small ‘cut-ins’ allow the top flap to fold over easily.
One glue tab only: this reduces cost and speeds up assembly. The width of the glue tab should only be a few mm less than the side.
The dashed lines are fold lines.
An example of a simple locking mechanism.
A complete self-locking box. These can be used for packaging heavier objects.
Crash bottom and interlocking containers.
Industry aims to reduce waste and keep costs low. Most high-speed production lines cut out the nets using a process called ‘die cutting’. This is computer-aided manufacture (CAM).
To do this, each net is positioned to fit as closely as possible to the next. There is just a small gap to allow for the width of the cutting blades. This process is called tessellation.
Less wasted card reduces the environmental impact and keeps raw material costs to the bare minimum.
Die cutting is similar to high- tech pastry cutting. Blades are arranged to cut the outline and as they are pressed down, other, less sharp blades will either lightly score or compress the fibres on the fold lines. In this way, the outline is cut through completely and the folds are scored for easy assembly.
Holographic – printing produces a pattern that,
Although flat, appears to have three dimensions.
Layers of metallic foil are used to achieve this effect.
Foil blocking works by stamping pre-glued
metallic foil onto the printed surface by heat
and pressure. It is used on cards and expensive
