Tuck in tabs offer easy construction, require less glue and fold flat for delivery and storage. How they are configured can be designed around how they are to be viewed on the shelf.

Crash Lock Bases
A more complex, but stronger structure. The base forms automatically so they are quick to build and to pack. They do store flat, but will take up more space.
Envelope Self Locking Base
Most often used for light items with a large base. They can be more complicated and time consuming to make up for packers, but do offer a strong structure.
Skillet End Base and Tops
Most commonly these are used for products that will be machine packed or require tamper proof packaging. These can incorporate a perforated tear strip.
