BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the invention

The invention relates to a package technique and, more particularly, to a package box and a method for packaging thereof.

2. Description of the prior art

FIG. 1A is a schematic diagram showing a combination of an electronic product and cushions according to the prior art. FIG. 1B is a schematic diagram showing a combination of an electronic product and a package container according to the prior art.

At present, a package container 1 of an electronic product 13 usually has a structure with closed four sides, a closed bottom and a top which may be opened. When the electronic product 13 is packaged, first, two ends of the electronic product 13 are against cushions 12, respectively. Then, the electronic product 13 together with the cushions 12 are placed into the package container 1. At last, a top surface 11 of the package container 1 is folded to achieve a sealing effect.

However, when detaching the electronic product 13 from the package container 1 with this structure, first, a user generally needs to fasten the package container 1 and then exerts an upward pull force simultaneously on the cushions 12 at two sides of the electronic product 13 to take the electronic product 13 disposed between two cushions 12 out from the package container 1. The user has to make sure that the electronic product would not drop off in the taking process.

To avoid damaging the electronic product 13 by shocks in the process of transporting, generally, the cushions 12 are closely attached to side walls of the package container 1. Moreover, since an opening at the top of the package container 1 is generally small, the electronic product 13 needs to be placed erectly in the package container 1. Thus, the whole detaching process is very inconvenient for users. Sometimes, the users have to destroy the package container 1 to take out the electronic product 13.

SUMMARY

OF THE INVENTION

The objective of the invention is to provide a package box and a method for packaging an article to improve the prior art.

According to an aspect of the invention, the invention provides a package box for packaging an article. The package box includes a box-shaped body and a sheet. The box-shaped body has a containing space for placing the article and a first fastening portion. The sheet is movably connected with the box-shaped body and is used to wrap the box-shaped body. The sheet has a first lateral part and a second lateral part. The first lateral part has a first fastening unit, and the second lateral part has a second fastening unit. When the sheet wraps the box-shaped body, the first fastening unit of the sheet and the first fastening portion of the box-shaped body are fastened with each other, and the first fastening unit and the second fastening unit of the sheet are fastened with each other. Thereby, a movement of the box-shaped body relative to the sheet is restricted.

According to another aspect of the invention, the invention provides a method for packaging an article. The method includes the following steps. The article is placed in a containing space of a box-shaped body having a first fastening portion. A sheet is used to wrap the box-shaped body, and the sheet has a first lateral part and a second lateral part. The first lateral part has a first fastening unit, and the second lateral part has a second fastening unit. The first fastening unit of the first lateral part is fastened to the first fastening portion of the box-shaped body, and the first fastening unit of the first lateral part is fastened to the second fastening unit of the second lateral part.

According to the package box and the method for packaging an article of the invention, a user can take out an article conveniently. Furthermore, the sheet outside the package box may be reused in the light of articles with different specifications. In a manufacturing process, only partial surfaces of the sheet need color printing, which greatly reduces cost of the color printing.

These and other features, aspects, and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with regard to the following description, appended claims, and accompanying drawings.
