You have an amazing product, you have a cool packaging design ready to go, and you’re ready to place an order for packaging. However, before you do so, there are a few key factors to consider that may affect your packaging specification. Here are 4 key considerations to be mindful of before you order packaging.
1. Have you considered how to store your boxes?If you don’t store your packaging boxes properly, you are essentially throwing them away. Paper and cardboard based packaging will deteriorate naturally, making them ideal eco-friendly options. However, the rate at which they deteriorate can be controlled, and simple steps can be taken to keep your packaging fresh and beautiful.
2. Are you using the right type of box?This is often one of the toughest questions to answer, because the “right” type of box is based upon many factors. Everyone prefers rigid boxes because they are often the slickest and nicest looking box. However, rigid boxes are also very space inefficient, costly to ship, difficult to store, more susceptible to damage and more expensive.
3. Have you considered how to ship your product?This is a dilemma primarily for eCommerce businesses. If you have a beautifully designed packaging, are you comfortable shipping it out as is? You might consider wrapping it up first with another layer of paper, or you might protect it with another box.
4. How will you place and protect the product in your packaging?We talked about how to protect your packaging, but what about the product itself? Your packaging is your first impression, and your chance to tell your story to your customers. Even if your product is new, you want to ensure you provide a memorable unboxing experience for your customers.
