Retail Display Boxes

Display Cardboard Boxes

Retail display boxes can be used for a variety of items. From children’s toys to food, these boxes are your easy solution for packaging and display in one easy to assemble unit.

Designed to be pre-filled with your products, they can be palletised and / or dispatched to a high sheet shop or supermarket and placed in the retail environment without having to remove them individually from packaging.

Large shelf ready display boxes are better for large but lightweight products – think boxes of crisps behind the bar at the pub or popcorn on the counter of a deli or cafe.

Maximise your Merchandising with Durable Retail Display Boxes

Welcome to the world where endurance meets elegance in your product presentation. In a busy marketplace, the longevity of your retail display boxes is a crucial aspect of maintaining a pristine and inviting product showcase over time. By prioritising the importance of material selection, your display can endure daily customer interactions while preserving your merchandise.

Choosing high-quality materials for your displays does more than protect your items; it’s a reflection of your brand’s commitment to excellence. This strategic choice impacts customer perception, influencing how they view the quality and value of your products. Hence, a robust and attractive retail display is a subtle yet powerful tool in boosting your brand reputation.

Customisation and Branding: The Key to Standing Out in Retail

Creating a Unique Customer Experience – The modern consumer not only looks for quality products but also values the shopping experience. Custom retail display boxes play an instrumental role in this. At WH Skinner we work with our clients to tailor the design to embody the aesthetics of your brand, creating a visual and tactile experience that resonates with customers, encouraging them to associate these positive experiences with your product.

The Role of Custom Boxes in Branding – To establish a strong brand identity, consistency is key. The customisation that we provide allows us to integrate business logos, brand colors, and messaging across all physical touchpoints. The Retail display boxes we produce act as silent salespeople, communicating your brand ethos and making your brand distinctive in a crowded marketplace. When customers recognise your distinct packaging, they begin to associate your brand with quality and reliability.

Leveraging Color and Design for Brand Recognition – The strategic use of colour and design in your retail display boxes can significantly boost brand recognition. Colour psychology and design elements are used to evoke specific emotions and communicate desired qualities of the brand, making your product instantly recognisable on a busy retail shelf.

Size and Shape Variability in Retail Display Boxes

When it comes to showcasing products in retail environments, one size does not fit all. Bespoke display boxes offer a solution that caters perfectly to product dimensions, ensuring that each item stands out for maximum impact.

Why One Size Doesn’t Fit All – The Benefits of Custom Sizing

  • Versatility: Products come in an array of sizes and custom-sized boxes ensure that each item fits snugly, reducing the risk of damage and presenting the item in the best possible way.
  • Cost Savings: Tailor-made solutions can reduce material waste and save on shipping and handling by optimising space.

Shape Solutions for Unique Items in Retail

Not only do products vary in size, but they also possess unique shapes that require innovative packaging solutions. Custom-shaped retail display boxes address this issue, providing secure and aesthetically pleasing packaging for items that defy conventional shapes.

    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.
