You may want your product to be unique and not be offered among various other similar product alternatives, such as looking through the Amazon site, would offer. To do so will require attention to detail with innovative and custom designed retail packaging, and e-commerce custom designed packaging, as you may only get one chance here. Use our checklist as a guide to ensure you are on track!
Ecommerce packaging, utilizing innovative packaging design, including all inner-packaging and anything that is opened, is critical to your success. The latest push is to eliminate as much extra packaging as possible, so today's custom boxes must be eye appealing, yet protect the product and be eco-friendly and recyclable. Make sure it's easy for the customer to open and ensure they are anxious to get at the product because the outside screams "open me"!! Your reputation is on the line too as your customer's friends, family and possible referrals can be impacted by poor quality and disappointed recipients of your products. Statistics indicate over 55% of buyers online repeat the sale if they have a good experience.
So, getting it right the first time is critical as it may be your only time, and keep in mind you are competing against more companies than ever before.
