Box-pressed (or "Square-pressed")
cigars are usually packed in two layers in a wide flat cigar boxthat has an attached flip or hinged lid, and is usually made of paper-covered wood or cardboard (as opposed to a plain-wood cabinet). The sides of box-pressed cigars will be gently pressed (so the cigars become squarer) prior to packing; this is because the box is marginally narrower than it would otherwise be to hold the same number of the round cigars, which ensures they are tightly packed, and also reduces the size of the box.
Box pressed cigars come in boxes of 25 or fewer.
