Retail Packaging and Retail Boxes

Designing attractive packaging for retail will help to persuade retailers to stock your products and ensure your retail sales are boosted. Print and finishing processes can range from full-colour printing and spot UV, metallic inks or varnishes applied to white cardboard for a glossy appearance to a single colour print to brown cardboard for a rustic appearance. Our corrugated cardboard retail packaging can be designed with custom cut-outs to display your products through the box. Packaging for retail can also be designed with cardboard handles integrated into the cardboard design, or include plastic handles to assist with carrying. WH Skinner is a packaging supplier based in the UK. We offer customised packaging, packaging inserts and printing.

Corrugated Cardboard Retail Boxes

Corrugated cardboard is a great material for retail boxes. Primarily, corrugated cardboard packaging is extremely strong compared to regular folding box board, making it ideal for consumer electronics and heavier or fragile items. However beyond its strength, corrugated cardboard is perfect for direct printing or laminating, varnishing and other finishes including metallic inks, meaning your boxes will look great on the retail shelf as well as protecting your contents.

Our Materials

Single Wall and Double Wall Flutes

Corrugated cardboard is a sustainable and recyclable material which is both lightweight and extremely strong. Depending on the thickness of the corrugations and finish of the liner board, corrugated card can be elegant, strong, and long lasting. Corrugated cardboard can be used for boxes and displays but also furniture, exhibitions, games and art.
E flute is mainly used for inner containers, presentation boxes and smaller countertop displays. Double wall corrugated cardboard such as EE or EB is used where box strength is important, or for free standing displays and dump bins. Single wall corrugated cardboard such as B or C flute is generally reserved for economical outer boxes and cartons. BC flute is used for more demanding applications.

Corrugated Cardboard

All the benefits of corrugated cardboard but with the added convenience of rigidity in sheet form. This material is ideal for use in cardboard furniture, exhibition and semi-permanent displays. It can also be used as packing material for fragile items.

Display board is a solid board without corrugations and is generally used for high-end displays, and in places where curves are desired such as elliptical towers or round displays. It is often used as a cladding material, where the strength and rigidity of a display will come from the corrugated cardboard components inside. Display board offers excellent print finish and a long-lasting high quality surface.

Display Cardboard

Ideal for use where cardboard is not suitable, UV-stable Correx can be used outdoors, in wet weather conditions, can be washed clean, and can be printed as usual. Commonly used for displays in garden centres and DIY stores.

Correx Cardboard

Extremely light weight and very rigid, foam board is ideal for hanging display boards. It has a very smooth surface for high print quality. 

Foamex is a solid plastic sheet material which has excellent longevity. Frequently this material is used for outdoor signage and has a good appearance once printed. Occasionally, Foamex is used for indoor displays where complex and detailed cut-outs reduce the strength of cardboard i.e. standees.


Predominantly, transparent polypropylene sheeting is used for producing mop trays, which are waterproof trays to fit around the base of a corrugated cardboard display. Once fitted, the floor can be mopped as usual without the need to move the display to a dry area.
