What is the packaging of a product for? 

Did you know that the first product to have packaging was soap back in the 19th century? 

Packaging was invented by an American, Benjamin Babbit, who created this type of packaging to sell soap in pieces of the same size, while previously, it was sold by weight. 

The packaging consisted of a plain, printed card. The American sensed the enormous advantage of product packaging, and for this reason, he was successful. 

Within a few years, packaging became something synergistic with the sale of the product itself. In addition to functioning as a container and product protection, it offered an excellent promotional and persuasive tool capable of highlighting a product's strengths. And to induce the customer to purchase  

After all, the packaging is the garment of our product, and if it is of quality and inviting, it also becomes what is underneath! 

The rules for good product packaging 

Creating packaging is not always that simple; there are some rules to follow to proceed in the right direction. We at packaging have seen this over the years. Here are some valuable tips to better design yours. 

There is no golden rule in designing the packaging of a product, but, if anything, there are questions to be answered!

  • What product do I sell? The first fundamental analysis undoubtedly starts from the treated product: what do I sell? Which shape does it have? What features does it need? These are the first answers to look for. 

  • Who are your potential customers? Who is our audience, and what are their needs? This is the fundamental question to ask when designing a successful box. Do I make a vegan product? So better think about bio-degradable packaging because my customers will undoubtedly be very attentive to that aspect. 

  • What sensations do you want to evoke? What feelings do you want to convey to your customers when they pick up your product? What trends can you leverage? The sympathy? A sense of sustainability? Luxury? By playing with materials, colours, types of paper and graphics, you can significantly change the feeling communicated by your packaging. 

  • What are your brand values? Do you already have a well-established brand? Did specific colours and shapes maybe characterize you? Think carefully about this when developing your packaging. Do not stray too far from the already established brand image; otherwise, the new product may not be associated with your brand in the consumer's mind. 

  • What are my competitors doing? Analyzing the competition is an essential element both to align with what may be the must-haves of the sector and to jump out of the box to differentiate from the common.

- Check that the resolution is not lower than 70 dpi 

- Check for any overprinting whites and their correction 

- Graphic check on safety margins 

- Check the distance of the graphic elements from the edge
