Window Boxes

Every brand uses it as a product showcase due to its transparent display and die-cut designs.

Importance of Window Boxes in Brand Success

Several industries use die-cut display window boxes of some sort to ensure their product is visible without opening the box. It can be classified as a type of display packaging option with a sleeker style. They can be customized, designed, and printed per your brand requirement.

Why Choose Blue Box Packaging?


Using Die-Cuts For Custom Cardboard Boxes

To get into further detail, we need to classify what window boxes are and how they are created. To get started, let us explain what die-cuts are and how they are used in the packaging industry.

Die cuts are custom shape cut-outs extracted from the box layout, as you requested. They can be in any shape you want and have no limitations on size—the two classic directions to head in our windows without plastic covering and windows with plastic covering. We will review them individually, starting with the window packaging boxes without the plastic cover.

What to Consider While Ordering Window Packaging Boxes

There are a few things to consider when discussing  custom product boxes, starting with the material. It needs to be clarified here and now that it is not recommended to add a window to a rigid box because it is tough to do so, and it destroys the purpose. As far as collapsible cardboard goes, there are no limitations to creating die-cuts. You can choose cardboard window boxes to ship flat, and a window in your desired shape can be cut out flawlessly.

One of the best uses we’ve seen around includes cartridge boxes, vape boxes, and CBD boxes. These products have a window to see and sometimes feel the product inside without needing to open the box. Almost all of the products, as mentioned earlier, use a plastic window because the product inside can be pulled out if it weren’t for a plastic cover.

Plastic-covered window boxes have an additional charge for including the plastic since it is an add-on. However, a simple window without plastic does not cost anything additional. Sometimes, soap window boxes have tiny cut-outs or die-cut windows to let the essence out for the client to recognize.

Die-Cut Box Styles Commonly Preferred

Tuck End

Perhaps one of the market’s most cost-effective and customizable boxes includes the custom tuck boxes. They are easy to use, handle and place the product inside. They have an open/close flap with simple construction accompanied by dust flaps on both ends. According to product requirements, they can be ordered in bulk with a window anywhere you prefer.

Tray And Sleeve

Tray and sleeves are also widely used in the food and CBD industry. Prized for their being collapsible and easy to store, they can be ordered with a custom cut-out anywhere on the sleeve or the tray. It is your call to decide if you need to have a plastic sheet to cover the window or not. Remember that just a cut-out is usually free; however, adding plastic to cover it up will cost additional.

To Sum It Up

Starting, we got into some industries that commonly use packaging with windows to show off products. The primary purpose for doing that is to have the option to display or touch and feel the product without actually opening the box. This goes very well for fabrics and scented products because it can help the client get a whiff of what your brand has to offer. Furthermore, different options for the materials available were undergone with some examples.

Toward the end, different materials and box styles were discussed, along with some information about adding plastic. See, as far as die-cuts or windows go, if no plastic is included, there may be no additional cost. However, if a PVC or plastic sheet is included, there will be an additional cost based on the size of the window.
