How PackMeister defines "this end up"
Depending on whether you decide to pack an item "standing up" or "laying down", your package will either be "tall and narrow" or "short and wide".

Because packages you create will often be vastly different shapes, it's important to have a clear idea of what constitutes the top, bottom, side, back or front of a package.

Box surfaces are generally described subjectively, i.e. based on how we're looking at the box; a "back" or "side" or "bottom" is usually defined by the way the box is standing at that moment. This is one reason that "this way up" stickers exist - if it were always clear which was the "top", we wouldn't need stickers. So how do we establish which side is which?
PackMeister's TOP
Although PackMeister Pro is quite capable, it can't deal with multiple definitions of the top, bottom, sides, front and back.
In PackMeister, there is only one top, regardless of how the item is oriented inside the package.

  • Top of a package is always the upper surface, as displayed.
  • Bottom is where you'd expect; opposite side to the top.
    At the bottom.
  • Flaps of the box are ALWAYS at the Top and Bottom.
  • Front faces you.
  • Back, farthest away from you.
  • Left is left and right is right.
