Great quality packaging can make a big difference in the overall experience a customer will have with your product. After all, packaging is often the first thing that they see! Great quality packaging can make your product seem more luxe, more appealing, and overall, more thoughtfully designed. However, there is a flipside to this too. Great packaging makes a helpful statement on your behalf, but bad packaging makes a statement too. Simply not a positive one. Bad packaging can make your product seem sloppy, not well thought through, and generally less appealing. Avoid this, by being aware of some key mistakes to avoid when working with packaging companies in Toronto.
Not Considering Utility
The first mistake to avoid, is not thinking through the real-world applications of your packaging. Yes, packaging needs to be attractive and on brand. However, packaging will also be serving a real-world purpose and, as such, needs to be designed with ease of use in mind. Packaging companies in Ontario should be able to work with you to ensure that customers do not have any big issues with your packaging being difficult. One such example of this, is packaging that is far too difficult to open up. This is a big issue for many customers, and can make their first impression of your product a bit less positive. Likewise, packaging should be designed thoughtfully and carefully, as this will make customers feel seen, and make your company seem more considerate. Packaging that is easy to open, packaging that safely houses your product, and packaging that reseals correctly and well (if that is pertinent), are all examples of thoughtfully designed packaging.
Another big issue for many consumers, is feeling that packaging is wasteful and not environmental. Yes, you want to work with packaging manufacturers to create packaging that is well made and sturdy, that is understandable! However, you do not want to overdo it and end up with packaging that reads as wasteful and ecologically harmful. Something like a box being far bigger than the object it houses, or there being far too much packing material in a package, can ping as wasteful and not necessary to many customers. Especially with so many more customers paying attention to sustainability. It is also not good because, well, wasteful packaging is not as sustainable as it could be! You will be much better able to reach your sustainability goals without excess wasted packaging.
