Why Choose the Fresh-Look Carton?
Build your brand and get noticed in the case! Adding a window will help create shelf appeal and enhance your brand. Fresh-Look cartons also satisfy two important consumer desires: to see the product and know when they are running low.
Fresh-Look® Carton
How Does It Work?
Custom windows can enhance your carton design and differentiate your brand. Windows can be incorporated in a variety of shapes, sizes and positions. No adhesives are used. Polymer film covers the window and area surrounding it and is heat sealed on the inside.
Consumer Ratings

In consumer testing, consumers gave paper cartons with windows an overall "A" or "Outstanding" rating. Consumers believe it will be superior to current packaging options at providing key benefits such as:

  • Making the product inside more appealing.
