Seeing Is Believing

Die Cut Windows

PaperBlister packaging increases the amount of space available for graphics, promotional messaging, product instructions, safety information and unique die-cut windows. Die-cut windows give consumers an advance look at the actual product, allowing them to verify the product’s authenticity and establish an immediate sense of trust. Studies show that windowpane cutouts have a favorable impact on product choice, trustworthiness, and sales. According to Mintel, die-cut windows draw curiosity and attention and allow consumers to become more familiar with your product. Some companies (e.g., cosmetics) use die-cut windows to give their products a more premium look. Others use them to help establish a creative and unique brand identity.

Giving consumers an up-close and personal look at your products can simplify the decision-making process, resulting in faster sales.
