FSDU design considerations

Durham Box has been designing and producing stand-out FSDUs for many years.  If you are looking for FSDUs to support a promotional campaign, you’ve come to the right place! Here are a few pointers to bear in mind when considering FSDUs:
  • Materials: The materials used will need to suit the durability of the unit and be aligned to the weight of your products. Using sustainable materials such as corrugated cardboard, which can be completely recycled, is an important factor as is ensuring that consumables can also be recycled.
  • Size matters: With many brands competing for retail space, the size of your FSDU matters. We will advise on the best dimensions for your display unit, while keeping to retailer guidelines and providing you with the very best solution.
  • Branding: The branding of your FSDU should be in keeping with your product packaging. At Durham Box, we can provide unrivalled production technology with our Nozomi C18000, enabling us to print and manufacture your secondary corrugated packaging - SRP’s, trays or outers - by using the same process that we use to print your FSDUs. This will ensure a continuity of finish, colour and quality across all promotional opportunities.
  • Creativity: To create maximum stand-out for your promotion, the Durham Box design team will use all of their considerable skills and experience to deliver you the best possible promotional opportunity. Remember, we are specialists in developing unique and distinctive packaging and display solutions.
  • Cost: Opting for standard size FSDUs instead of bespoke can heavily reduce unit cost, whilst still providing you with a purposeful branded unit for your products. Delivering the units flat packed instead of pre-assembled will help reduce costs also.
  • Flexibility: At Durham Box, we have the flexibility through our Nozomi C18000 to change promotional messaging, prices and refresh the look of your FSDUs, without having to fully change to new units per campaign. 
Talk to us

Whether you’re looking for hundreds or thousands of FSDUs for a national campaign or just a few units for a regional campaign [yes, we can support campaigns at a regional level], we will guide you through the whole process, from design concept to delivery.
