Plastic Window Boxes

As companies strive to make more eco-conscious choices, they often work to use more recyclable materials in their packaging. Window box packaging is a great way to do that. These hybrid boxes are typically made of paperboard with a clear plastic window, which enhances product visibility and increases sales while using far less plastic. This makes them a popular choice for food and candy, cosmetics, toys, and more.

Window boxes are made with Clear PET which is 100% recyclable and that is something many consumers are looking for. Now you can go one step further with another sustainable choice which is our NEW Clear 100% PCR! This Post Consumer Recycled Content (PCR PET) is an innovation as it is clear yet made with 100% recycled materials. Until recently, “clear” PET used to require a mix of 25%- or 50%-part PCR combined with Virgin PET. Now, 100% PCR PET is available, and it is Clear!

As a leading packaging manufacturer and specialist in plastic folding cartons, our expanded product lineup includes rigid window applicators and pick-and-place services. We know how important window boxes are to our customers, and we’re proud to provide these packaging solutions. 

Window Boxes Examples

What Is Plastic Window Box Packaging?

Also called duo-cartons or hybrid boxes, window box packaging is made with SBS paperboard and a clear window to allow shoppers to see the product inside the package. The added visibility increases sales by allowing consumers to take a closer look at contents inside the box. The window also makes your product stand out on the shelf, inviting potential buyers to examine the product before making a purchasing decision. 

Window box packaging comes in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and decoration options. By using decorative processes such as offset printing, hot foil stamping, cold foil, and silk screen printing, you can add attractive accents, eye-catching graphics, and other visually appealing features to further increase consumer interest and sales.

At Printex Transparent Packaging, we have pick-and-place equipment to create window boxes where the entire top half is clear PET, while the bottom half is made of SBS. You’ll see one, two, three, and even four-sided windows on products in many industries, including food and consumer goods as well as cosmetics, toys, stationery, and more. It’s a versatile, effective packaging and marketing solution for many kinds of products. 

The Benefits of Plastic Window Boxes

Window boxes help your products stand out on the shelf. Giving the consumer visual access to a product before they buy it comes with several benefits for both you and your customers. These benefits include:

  • Builds trust between you and the buyer
  • Increases perceived value of the product
  • Improves your brand image
  • Increases sales because consumers are drawn to your product on the shelf
  • Maintains product integrity, as consumers won’t feel the need to open the package in the store
  • Environmentally friendly as PET can be made with 100% Post Consumer Recycled content and all clear PET is recyclable
