Product packaging plays an important role across the industry, not just in retail. Your packaging must ensure the safety of the product, as well as promote a positive experience to your customers. One great way to achieve this is through custom packaging.
Many factors determine why a product gets chosen off the shelves regardless of quality. Factors such as color schemes, novelty design, or ease of remembering – all of which can be attained through custom packaging designs.
Reasons Why Your Brand Needs Custom Packaging
Custom Packaging Sets Your Brand Apart from Others
Remember that you are up against hundreds and thousands of products in the market – all vying for your customers’ attention. For you to succeed over your competitors, your brand packaging needs to stand out. Make the design as eye-catching as possible while still maintaining relevance to the name of the product, as well as your brand.
Packaging Color Influences Purchasing Habits of Costumers
Color schemes of your packaging play a vital role in customers ‘ buying decisions. As shown by studies, your brain associates certain feelings or emotions with colors, so choose your packaging colors wisely. For example, white represents simplicity, purity, and peace. Blue represents playfulness and joy while a darker shade of blue is considered to be more professional.
One thing that you can do as a brand is to study your target demographic, and from there, you can determine what type of color scheme is the most ideal for your packaging.
Custom Packaging Creates and Promotes Brand Recognition
If you look at some of your favorite brands, they all have one thing in common; all of them are memorable. One specific brand that comes to mind is Coca Cola. Throughout the years, they’ve only made minor changes to their packaging but overall have stayed true to their original look.
Having a custom packaging can help consumers identify or distinguish your brand among the countless others in the market.
Increase Brand Awareness
This goes hand in hand with promoting brand recognition, your brand won’t be recognized if you’re not making people aware of your brand in the first place. Having a custom package design significantly improves brand awareness.
Rather than use a plain and dry cardboard box, you can custom design your packaging to feature your brand logo or name. Doing so will provide customers with a positive opening experience, as well as reinforces your brand, strengthening brand value.
Packaging has and will always be about creating a positive impression of your brand towards the customer. This is prominent in eCommerce products where the only interaction of your brand and the customer is when the product is received.
In that particular setting, the product packaging alone is responsible for creating a positive user experience. One wrong move can lead to your costumers being turned off, and you don’t want that happening – especially if they’re active on various social media platforms.
By promoting your brand value, you establish an emotional connection with your customers. And having an emotional connecting through your brand and the customer is one key aspect to maintaining a long term relationship.
