A “Window of Opportunity”

A window box has the benefits of a paperboard box plus the advantages of a PET clear window. Lots of branding can be printed on the box and a clear window showcases the product. For the holidays this can be for promotional gift sets, Christmas Crafts, Christmas chocolates, Christmas baked goods, or health and beauty promotional gift sets. A window box is a great way to showcase what is inside the package and convey a higher value proposition. In a Clemson eye-tracking study, participants were asked, “When buying personal care products, which package do you perceive as being higher quality?” respondents answered “clear plastic” more than 85 percent of the time. Participants were four times more likely to purchase a product that they could see through the clear plastic package.
