Painting Cardboard Cigar Boxes

What kind of paint is the best to use on cardboard? And do you have to use Kilz on it to cover up what is printed on it like you do a wall that is painted and you are changing color? Do you have to seal it and if you do seal it what do you use? I want to paint some cigar boxes for to use to put things in.
