Regular Slotted Container - RSC
International Box Code: 0201


All flaps are the same depth, and the two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one-half the container's width, so that they meet at the enter of the box when folded.  This is a highly efficient design.  The only overlaps are the flap for a glued or stitched manufacture's joint, and the inner (or minor) flaps.   There is a very little manufacturing waste.
The RSC can be used for most products, and is the most common box style.  If the product requires a flat, even bottom surface, or the protection of two full layers, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps.

Overlap Slotted Container - OSC
International Box Code: 0202


All flaps are the same depth, and the outer flaps overlap by 1 inch or more.  The box is easily closed, usually with staples driven through the overlap area.  This style is used when the length of the box is considerably greater than the width, resulting in a long gap between the inner flaps.  The sealed overlap helps to keep the outer flaps from pulling apart.

Full Telescope Design Style - FTD
International Box Code: 0301


The two-piece box is made from two scored and slotted rectangular blanks, with minimal manufacturing waste.  The full-depth cover slides completely over the body, providing extra thickness of board on all side and end panels.  this provides compression strength suitable for high stacking of fragile articles.   "Design style" refers to the joining of flaps on the side or end panels, rather than on the top or bottom of the box.  The advantage is a flat bottom (and top), suitable for paper, books and similar products.

Full-Telescope Half Slotted - FTHS
International Box Code: 0320


Each of the two box blanks resembles a regular slotted container, but with only one set of flaps.  They are both slotted on one edge rather than two, accounting for the term "half-slotted."  The depth of the cover piece is slightly more than the depth of the body, so that the cover will slide over the body to its full depth.  Two thickness of corrugated board on all four sides provide product protection and stacking strength.  The style is used extensively for fresh fruits and vegetables, frequently with ventilation holes for the circulation of cool air.  At destination, the cover is easily removed so that the contents can be examined.  A single half-slotted box (International Box Code: 0200) is sometimes used as a cover for palletized products, such as refrigerators or washing machines.

International Box Code: 0410
