4 surprisingly easy ways to refresh your packaging

custom branding

Have you ever thought about custom branding your packaging?

Maybe to help you answer that, we need to ask another question first-

 what does your current packaging say about your business?

Whether you are a Maker/Artisan just starting out in local craft markets or an established brick and mortar retail store, your packaging should say a lot about who you and what you are about.

For example, it can be a very important part of your product. In the case of a Maker at a market, it can mean the difference of whether a customer chooses your products over those of someone else. That can have a significant impact on your overall sales.

Does your packaging compliment your products?

Does it say, “pick me!” to potential buyers?

For the Retailer, the way you present (or package) your customer’s purchase can have a lasting impact on how they felt about their shopping experience. It can make the difference of whether they keep coming back or not. And whether they spread the word about you…word of mouth recommendations are gold!

Does your packaging reflect your Store’s brand?

Does it say “thank you, we value your business”?

What if you’re an online seller? Since you don’t have personal interaction with your customer, your packaging is the first thing they’ll “meet” when they receive their order.

Does your packaging help create an unforgettable “unboxing” experience for them?

Is it Instagram worthy??

Remember, as the saying goes, presentation is EVERYTHING!! So, let’s take a moment and look at your packaging…

Have you had the same packaging for a while?

Is it interesting or creative?

Is your packaging saying the right thing about you?

If not then maybe it’s time to REFRESH!
