  2. Does Custom Packaging Means More Than Just Branding?

    As a customer, have you been impressed with the packaging of some of the products that you purchase? This is because the manufacturer made the efforts to ensure that every aspect of the package was designed in a way that would enable you to connect with the brand and relate to it. But does custom packaging only emphasize on branding? One of the most common misconceptions amongst customers and manufacturers is that custom packaging is only good for enhancing branding. This is one of the objectives of custom packaging, but it definitely not the only objective. If you were to look at it from a basic perspective, then custom packaging does offer enhanced protection as well as presentation for the intended products. It all depends on the way the package is conceptualized and designed. Custom packaging helps manufacturers to deliver the following benefits to the customers.

    Assurance of a Damage-Free Product

    A custom packaging design ensures that the dimensions, contours, and build of the package is made to provide maximum protection to the contents. This goes a long way in assuring a damage free product. After all, no one likes to receive a product that is damaged. Not only does this indicate a monetary and financial loss for the customer, but the brand also loses its goodwill due to the dissatisfaction caused by the delivery of a damaged product.


    It is possible that the manufacturer might want to make the package reusable or maybe even functional in nature. All of this would be reflected in the package

  3. 3 Reasons Why Small Businesses Should Use Short Run Packaging

    Start-up businesses or small business have one thing in common - they both lack adequate funding for kicking off promotional activities on a large scale. Without the required promotions and marketing initiatives, the business would not be able to achieve the desired growth in the desired time frame. The situation becomes even more challenging if the business operates in the ecommerce domain. For small businesses, specifically product based businesses, it is important to utilize the budget carefully so as to work with the limited available budget and come up with Effective Packaging Materials for Shipping. Investing heavily in huge orders of custom or branded boxes might prove to be problematic.

As a safe bet, it is better to order less and obtain greater benefits with the use of short run packaging. If you have not yet decided on using short run packaging for your business, then these reasons should encourage you to use it.

The small packages would help you to probe the interests of your target customers without having to lose a lot of money in the process. So in a way, short run packaging helps with direct cost savings that can prove to be a life saver if you have just started out as a business.

  4. The Best Way to Remove Stubborn Packing Tape

    Have you dealt with the issue of removing those stubborn packing tapes from your products? Obviously you might not have faced a problem if the packing tape was stuck to the Cushioning Material (such as bubble wrap) or the packing boxes. But if you have a large electronic equipment, say for example a refrigerator, then you do find some really annoying packing tape stuck to the glossy and beautiful surface. The first thing that everyone tries is soap and water. Was it effective? I guess not, otherwise you would not be reading this. Some people even use acetone or nail polish removers to get those sticky bits off the surface. It does require some muscle power to really scrape those bits off. Such solvents may be the first things that come to mind, but trust me, they are not very effective. Also, you can end up damaging the product itself, which would be even more disappointing if you have just purchased it. No solvents, no soap and water, and definitely not a sharp edged tool to scrape off the bits. Then what do you do? I believe that the best solution for these
