This is a corrugated cardboard box designed for children in less-developed regions and refugee children. I have printed the flattened chess pieces on the inside of the outer packaging of the aid through the technique of laser branding, thus avoiding the use of ink. When the humanitarian organization delivers the aid to the target area, the children there can cut out the chess pieces with adult guidance as a way of practising their hands-on skills. This can give the children an educational toy at little extra cost. At the same time, the corrugated cardboard boxes are environmentally friendly.
