Applying a window patch to your paperboard or mailer boxes is a great way to add a professional touch. Window patches are most commonly used for product packaging, but they can also be used for other purposes, such as marketing collateral or direct mail.
Keep reading to learn more about window patches, when to use them, and how to apply them.
What is a Window Patch?
A window patch is a piece of clear film that is adhered to the surface of a box. This allows the contents of the box to be seen without opening it. This is helpful because it allows customers to see the product without opening the package, which can help increase sales and reduce returns.
Additionally, window patches can be made in different shapes. No matter what you want your window to look like, we can make it happen. Whether you want a heart-shaped window, a square window, or a window in the shape of your company logo, we can help create it for you.
When Should I Use a Window Patch?
Window patches are most commonly used on paperboard boxes and mailer boxes. They are a great way to show off your product, whether it’s a bakery item, a gift, cosmetics, digital products, or something else. Window patches can be custom made to fit any size or shape of box, and they can be printed with any design you like.
You can use window patches with either sole or multiple windows depending on your needs. There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to use a sole or multiple window patch for your custom paperboard boxes:
First – Consider the size of your box. If your box is on the smaller side, a single window patch may be sufficient. However, if your box is larger, you may want to consider using multiple window patches in order to provide an unobstructed view of the contents.
Second – Think about the shape of your window patch. If you want a more traditional rectangular window, a single window patch will likely be sufficient. However, if you want a more unique shape, multiple window patches may be necessary in order to create the desired effect.
Finally – Consider the location of your window patch. If you want your window patch to be visible from all sides of the box, multiple window patches will be necessary in order to achieve this.
Ultimately – The decision of whether to use a sole or multiple window patch for your custom paperboard boxes depends on a variety of factors. By considering all of these factors, you can make sure that you choose the best option for your particular needs.
In addition, window patches can also be used on other types of boxes, such as rigid boxes; however, window patches are not typically used on shipping boxes which is mainly applied for transporting goods and window patch is not that resistant to tear and damage during shipping.
Window patches are an easy and inexpensive way to add a professional touch to your paperboard or mailer boxes. When applied correctly, they can help generate sales by allowing customers to see the contents of the package without opening it.
