It’s always incredibly exciting when the Pantone forecast for the next year arrives. We love following the trends and ensuring our boxes, as well as our ribbons at FoldaBox are always on par. So, whether you’re looking for something trendy for your wedding or product packaging, we’re on top of it.


The predictions from Pantone for 2018 definitely do stand out

From powerful pink to minion yellow, these are the hues you can look forward to seeing in home design next year.


Resourceful: A palette made up of complementary blue and orange colors. “This is quite an interesting color combination,” said Eiseman. “It combines warm and cool tones that you just can’t avoid looking at.”


  • Ourorange A4 wave box lids are wonderfully vibrant and bring products to life with a pop of fun colour. They look great combined with a black wave base, or with added black ribbon. Also great with natural kraft bases for organic food hampers and honey gifts that need a pop colour for a lively contrast.

  • Pale blue makes the perfect baby boy gift hamper or memory keepsake box. A lovely deep, dusky, powder blue, so they are also great as bakery boxes or for lingerie and clothing when combined with black, white or silver grey ribbon. Take alook at our blue collection to see for yourself.

Verdure: Vegetal colors like Celery are combined with berry-infused purples and eggshell blue, symbolic of health, in this palette.


  • Our pale blue collection mentioned above fits this description perfectly but if you’re really looking for something vegetal, then we highly recommend ourhigh quality Sage Green grosgrain ribbon to fit our range of slot gift boxes with changeable ribbon. A warm, pretty and fresh green, perfect to add to white, ivory, silver or black boxes. A great accent colour for luxury specialty food hampers or beauty product gift hampers.

Playful: Think "Minions." Bright yellow, lime popsicle, and all other things fun come together for this color scheme. "People need to stop and smile," said Eiseman.


Far-fetched: With warm, earthy hues such as Cornsilk Yellow blending with rosy tones, this palette "reaches out and embraces many different cultures," said Eiseman.


  • Do you love the idea of minion yellow as much as we do? It will certainly add that pop of colour to your product packaging. Our gorgeoushigh quality yellow grosgrain ribbon will fit our range of slot gift boxes with changeable ribbon. A bright, vibrant and very pretty colour to add to white or black gift boxes. Ideal for cupcake bakery boxes or baby gift hampers. So if you’re aiming for either playful or far-fetched, this yellow is for you.

Discretion: Playful's alter ego. Subtle hues such as Elderberry and Hawthorne Rose offer a new sense of strength. "Pink has developed more power than ever before," said Eiseman.

  • Pale pink makes the perfect baby girl gift hamper or memory keepsake box. Also great for lingerie and clothing when combined with black or silver grey ribbon. A very pretty and contemporary dusky blush pink that works very well alongside Pale Blue Gift Boxes. Take a look at ourpale pink collection here.


Intricacy: A palette of neutral metallics (AKA, the "new neutrals") with accents of dramatic Holly Berry red and yellow Sulfur.


  • When it comes to neutral metallics, we have a wide range for you to choose from. Our signature pearl gift boxes have a beautiful pearlescent matt finish throughout, which represents neutral metallics so well. Perfect retail gift and hamper packaging for gourmet goods, luxury clothing, ceramics, wedding gifts and small soft furnishings or corporate merchandise. It is available insilver,red andgold.

Intensity: This is an eclectic mix of colors that evokes a sense of strength, power and sophistication, all balanced with black and gold.


  • Don’t choose between black or gold, these rich colours should never have to compete. They work together so you could alternate between gold and black. The FoldaBox gold gift boxes with a beautiful, sophisticated and unique gold pearlescent matt finish for the ultimate in luxury gift hamper and retail presentation packaging. Our black gift boxes are incredibly popular and great for all types of luxury retail gift packaging.

TECH-nique: Bright turquoise, pink and purple colors anchored with Brilliant White and Frosted Almond nod to technology. This palette is all about hues "that seem to shine from within," said Eiseman.


  • We definitely encourage the use of cerise pink for this theme. Ourcerise pink, also known as hot pink or fuchsia pink, is a great colour for retail packaging of gifts for her, hen party gift hampers, chocolates, clothing, fashion accessories, lingerie and cupcakes. Our exclusive pink wave box lid looks great in combination with a black folding A4 Wave base.

The Pantone Color Institute's Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, says, “As consumers continue to embrace color, designers are recognizing the need to show more color in their collections...Along with this recognized freedom to explore and experiment with more color, experts at the Pantone Color Institute note that fashion, and the people who interact with it, no longer want to limit themselves by following traditional color guidelines.”
