Why the 5-Sided Acrylic Box is the Swiss Army Knife of Displays

Whether you’re creating displays for your retail store, office, or special event, ShopPOPdisplays has everything you need to make your vision a reality. While we offer hundreds of display products, there is one item that is by far the most popular among our customers: the 5-sided acrylic box. So why do people love this display item so much? Here are some of the many perks to our 5-sided acrylic boxes.





Acrylic—also known as plexiglass—is a transparent thermoplastic homopolymer that was first produced in 1928 to make airplane windows, canopies, and turrets during World War II. Although it is half the weight of glass, acrylic offers up to 17 times the impact resistance of ordinary glass. While acrylic can crack and fracture, it is shatterproof and impact-resistant, so even if a box gets knocked over, the items inside—along with the people in the vicinity—will remain safe.



There really are no limits to what you can do with 5-sided acrylic boxes. Make floral arrangements for weddings and special events with our acrylic 5 sided box 18″h x 12″w x 12″l tall, showcase colorful candies for a dessert bar in the acrylic 5 sided box with removable divider, or store loose items near the checkout to encourage impulse buys with the acrylic 5 sided box – 6″h x 6″w x 9″l.



Our selection of 5-sided acrylic boxes with lids is easily stackable. Not only do they allow you to design a creative display, but they are also a space saver. We have options with hinged lids, shoebox lids, hasp lock lids, and cam lock lids—all in a variety of sizes.



Acrylic is as transparent as glass. In fact, it can often be clearer because it doesn’t have the same green tint as glass. That means 5-sided acrylic boxes allow items on display to be viewed without distortion.



While clear 5-sided acrylic boxes allow customers to see what is inside—which is perfect for showcasing merchandise and making inventory easy to find—there might be times when you want to add some color to your display. Fortunately, 5-sided acrylic boxes also come in a variety of colors. Choose from red, blue, green, black, and white. ShopPOPdisplays even has fluorescent options, including red, blue, and green, as well as frosted and transparent yellow.




Acrylic is stronger than glass but lighter in weight, so you can easily move your 5-sided acrylic boxes whenever you want to change up your display.

Special UV filtering acrylic will protect your display items from fading and premature aging.

Acrylic is more affordable than glass, so you can really get creative with your designs using 5-sided acrylic boxes. Retailers, business owners, and event planners can order a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors without breaking the bank.


Easy To Clean

Whether it’s fingerprints or dust, you will need to care for your 5-sided acrylic boxes. Luckily, 5-sided acrylic boxes are super easy to clean. Simply wipe it down with a clean cloth. You can also use products like Novus, which gently cleans acrylic without scratching. Not only does it leave a shine, but it also prevents fogging, repels dust, and eliminates static.
