So you’ve got an amazing product – exactly what the customer wants at exactly the right moment. It’s been thoroughly tested, it’s ready to go on the market, but you’ve still got one more thing to get right: the packaging.
Packaging protects your product in stores and during transport, but once it’s in the customer’s hands, it’s job is done, right? Maybe not. Discover how packaging is an investment in more than just product protection.
Great packaging leads to great sales
We all know how important branding is to define the look and perception of your company, and to us packaging is just one step further along that road.
Well-designed packaging will help you to stand out from the competition and can increase the perceived value of your products, resulting in consumers being more likely to see them as a good value option. Consistent packaging transforms a wide range of products into an easily recognisable family that will immediately catch the consumer’s attention.
Your packaging can also help convey any relevant messages or information that consumers might need to know before purchase, all on a perfectly-sized packet, custom designed to your specifications.
Specialised Products need Specialised Packaging
For certain industries, packaging must conform to legal standards, making it even more essential than usual. Specialised packaging has been developed for the food industry to ensure the quality and longevity of the product inside. For example, we make use of grease-resistant and freezer-safe cardboards, as well as laminated board technology for snack products that boast a moisture and fat-resistant barrier.
The healthcare sector is another field where packaging is strictly controlled and must meet high safety and security standards. It’s also a requirement that manufacturers provide a Braille translation on all products. We’re well equipped to handle such requests.
Sustainable Packaging for a Sustainable Future
The journey of your packaging doesn’t just end in the hands of the consumer. Where your packaging ends up will likely reflect upon your business’s reputation. Consumers are also looking more and more closely at how recyclable packaging is and may choose to avoid certain products that use unsustainable materials.
At EIP UK, we believe it’s our responsibility to ensure our packaging doesn’t negatively affect the environment, and that’s why we have a variety of eco-friendly options available for businesses that share our values.
