Promo Boxes for Retailers

Attract Shoppers with Our Retailer Promo Boxes

If you have an important product launch and you want to present to buyers for retailers, such as supermarkets, department stores, chains of high street retailers, online sellers etc, a promo box is an ideal introduction. You can choose to introduce new brands, product ranges, or new formulations. Buyers will be interested to taste, smell, touch and use your products before making the decision to purchase bulk quantities and stock on the shelves of their warehouses and retail outlets.

Marketing to retailers using promo boxes is easy, here are some simple suggestions:

  • Include full size or sample size products
  • Include accessories which make the experience of testing your product easier, quicker, or more complete
  • Include instructions if they are required
  • Finally, don’t forget a business card detailing your contact information

What to Include in Your Retail Promo Boxes

You may want to consider including accessories to help the retailers test your product. As an example seen in some of our previous projects, a mug and spoon included so that the buyer just needs to add water to the sachet to test out the sachet of porridge. We’ve also seen mirrors included for cosmetic items, sugar and serum included for ready-made pancakes, but also the inclusion of branded or promo items such as branded pens, notebooks and coasters, to sit on the desks of the recipients – and keep your brand in mind in the future. This is really an opportunity for you to have fun and be creative from a marketing point of view.

    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.

    This 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 cardboard such as EE or EB is used where box strength is important, or for free standing displays and dump bins.

    Single wall 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.

    Structural Board Protective Cardboard

    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 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. 

    Foam Centred Board

    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 cardboard display.

    Once fitted, the floor can be mopped as usual without the need to move the display to a dry area.
