Do You Have a Packaging Design Ready Yet?

Are you thinking about the packaging for your new product? If you aren't thinking about it yet, then you probably should be. The type of packaging that you use can have a big impact on the success of your product. In the first place, the packaging you choose will ensure that the product is not damaged in transit and that it reaches the customer in good condition, but beyond that, the packaging plays an important part in making certain that the customer makes the decision to buy the product.

How does packaging influence the purchase?

The way that a product is packaged often determines whether or not that item is purchased. Sometimes your packaging supplier will wrap the product in such a way that it is displayed to the customer, and at other times, the only thing that the customer will see before making their choice is the packaging. In both cases, you will need to talk to your packaging supplier to ensure that they can supply packaging in the best materials and with exactly the design that will best showcase your product to your customers.   

How can you choose the right packaging?

When you need to select the packaging for any product, then some of your concerns will be practical. You will want packaging that is strong and durable enough to protect your product, but you will also have aesthetic concerns as well. The packaging that you choose must help to clearly differentiate your product from the competition. You could differentiate by using brighter colours or by including images of the product in use. Perhaps you will be able to think of a phrase that describes the product positively and you want that phrase prominently displayed on the box. Working with the packaging supplier is the best way to design and develop the right packaging for your product.

Choosing the right packaging supplier

A good packaging supplier will know their product range well. It's likely that there is already a suitable 'off-the-shelf' packaging solution that is perfect for your product. The packaging supplier will be able to explain which parts of the packaging can be customised, which colours and graphics can be used and how the final packaging would appear once the design is complete.
