One of the final but crucial steps of delivering a quality product to your customer is the packaging. Ensuring that your packaging accurately reflects your brand while still standing out from its competitors can have a significant impact on sales. It also affects the overall customer experience and satisfaction, which is why businesses must take the time to properly package their products.
The good thing is that it’s never too late to innovate. If your current packaging isn’t getting the results you’re expecting, it’s still possible to make the change. And if you’ve just completed a product and are just about ready for launch, then coming up with custom packaging solutions is even more exciting.
Make Your Product Stand Out
Consider these six factors when creating custom packaging for your products.
Before coming up with any custom packaging solutions for your product, take some time and check out what your competitors’ packaging looks like. The last thing you want to do is look similar to a product you’re trying to beat, and so this step is necessary and must be done in order to stand out.
The shape of your packaging makes a strong impression, and can quickly distinguish your product from others lined up right next to it. If you notice the shape of your product is the same as or too similar to others, it might be time for a change.
We’ve all experienced seeing or opened packages that swallow the product. First, efficiency should always be a top priority, and that includes your packaging. It’s possible your product may not fit in a standard box. That’s fine, just customize your packaging accordingly so you are not wasting any material or space. On a side note, much is made of the impact businesses have on the environment. Keep that in mind when customizing your packaging.
If you’ve noticed that sales are down, a good place to make some changes in the packaging. You’ll be surprised just how much consumers react to the aesthetic of a product, and making that crucial change can be just the right ingredient you need to spur on those lagging sales.
This part of your packaging can’t be an afterthought. Your product needs to get from point A to point B safely, and also needs to open safely. At The Unique Group, we know how to find the right balance between creativity and maintain the integrity of your product.
In today’s society, companies (and consumers) are placing more emphasis on products that are environmentally friendly. When designing your packaging, consider materials that are reusable or recyclable. Packaging that can be reused over and over again, instead of going straight into the trash, not only lowers a company’s environmental footprint, but it also adds more value to the product overall.
