What Is a Counter Display Box?
The counter display boxes are the boxes that you see on top of counters in retail stores next to cashiers. They carry ready-to-purchase products and are a great way to promote sales since the customer has to stop at the counter, and having products encased in vibrant and enticing counter display boxes causes customers to make purchases. Counter display boxes are used for products including CDs, DVDs, candies, chocolates, cosmetics, magazines, and much more. You can even find medicines placed in counter display boxes.
Popular Packaging Styles of Counter Display Boxes
The counter display boxes are meant to be placed in the limelight. They have to actively grab customers’ attention, and that’s why we can’t opt for boring and dull packaging styles. That’s where popular and trending packaging styles come into play. Two of the popular packaging styles for counter display boxes include the following;
- Tuck End Counter Display Boxes
- Double-Walled Counter Display Boxes
Tuck End Counter Display Boxes
The tuck end boxes have become really popular because they offer convenience to businesses. They feature three flaps on the top and bottom end. Two out of the three flaps are designed to be supportive while the third hooked flap ‘tucks into’ the counter display box. Thanks to their design, these boxes are not only straightforward to fold and store but erecting and using them is virtually hassle-free. There are different variations of tuck end counter display boxes that GoTo Packaging offers, such as an auto-locking tuck counter display box. This variation of tuck end display box features an auto-locking bottom thus is capable of handling heavier weights.
Double-Walled Counter Display Boxes
These boxes are famous because of their strength and durability. The double-walled counter display boxes feature two sheets of robust card stock that help protect the box’s contents from each side. We can increase the number of layers based on your requirements. Such boxes are floor-based counter display boxes and therefore require extra protection against bumps and wear & tear.
Other variations of counter display boxes that we offer to our clients include the following;
- Pop-Up Lid Counter Display Boxes
- Vertical Counter Display Boxes
- Punch Inserted Counter Display Boxes
- Perforated Counter Display Boxes

Selecting Materials For Your Counter Display Boxes
It is crucial that you opt for high-quality materials for your counter display boxes. Why? Because these boxes are always going to be at the center of the stage. By selecting the right kind of material, you are making sure that your counter display boxes are sturdy, enticing, elegant, and offer the optimal print quality. Commonly used material for counter display boxes includes the following;
- Kraft Material
- Card Stock Material
- Corrugated Material
- Rigid Material
Kraft is a sturdy material that is also environment-friendly since it is recyclable. Kraft material is lightweight, and handling kraft counter display boxes is easy.
Card Stock Material
Card stock material is also a lightweight material that can help you create stylish and innovatively designed counter display boxes. The card stock material offers high print quality, thus enabling you to entice your customers with your artwork!
This material offers the highest order of protection to the contents of counter display boxes. It is made up of two elements; flute and liners. The corrugated material can also help you keep the moisture away from the products contained within the counter display boxes.
Are you ready to give your customers a premium look with your counter display boxes? If yes, then this material is the right choice for your business. With trending add-ons, you can really leave a lasting impression on your customers when you opt for rigid material.
