Our men’s underwear portfolio includes packaging and labelling solutions to suit your product needs. These are just five of the ways that The Unique Group can help enhance your men’s underwear brand:
1. Gusset Bags for Men’s Underwear
Traditionally, when you think of packaging in gusset bags, coffee, tea or other types of foods come to mind. However, gusset bags have grown to become a dependable means of packaging underwear. They provide a fair amount of space for the items and are large enough in size for creative package designs, logos, and brand promotions.
2. Branded Kraft Paper
Using branded kraft paper is an effective way to promote your brand. It accompanies the rest of your packaging and can house your logo along with other important information about your underwear, including the material and number of underwear in the pack. It is an economical and sustainable option and the material can be used to make both bags and boxes.
3. Branded Polybags for Men’s Underwear
Though polybags can come in several different colours, they are effective as clear bags when you want the underwear to be seen through the packaging. The branding can still be incorporated onto the packaging, which familiarizes consumers with your brand in addition to giving them a glimpse of the product. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) polybags are known for their durability and versatility.
4. Retail Packaging and Stickers
An important aspect to designing men’s underwear packaging is ensuring all the pertinent information is clearly and accurately displayed for consumers. This includes designing the box so that it stands out from its competition and adding stickers that identify the product’s size, style, and colour. Customers want to know exactly what they are buying and your product’s packaging can go a long way in relaying this information.
5. Labelling Options for Men’s Underwear
A product’s label says a lot about the product and its brand. Companies should put considerable thought into the type of label they want to use for their product because not only does it need to be functional, comfortable and durable, but it also needs to accurately represent your brand’s vison. Consider the various labelling options ranging from woven and printed labels to durable heat transfer labels. Heat technology ensures that your label is visible no matter the surface, whether it is printed on cloth, elastic cords or silicone.
