Benefits of Having A Good Packaging Design

As a supplier, how can you attract consumers to choose your product, instead of buying other substitutes on store shelves? The answer is to have a unique packaging design.

What is a Packaging Design?

Unique packaging design is a harmonious combination of images, colors, designs, materials, and several factors to create a visual that appeals to consumers. Having a unique packaging design is among the most important factors in any marketing campaign.

What are the benefits of having a good packaging design for your product?

Many businesses cover up their unpleasant packaging with splashy colors in an attempt to get the customers’ attention. However, a beautiful packaging design needs to be aesthetic and based on the characteristics of the product.

Making your products stand out in a crowded market

Creative packaging design makes your brand and your products more prominent and appealing. You only have a few second to make an impression on a customer before they have their eyes on other products. A product with a unique and outstanding packaging design will help retain customers’ attention longer. 

Unique packaging design helps attract customers enough to choose your product, take a closer look and determine if your product adds value to their lives.

Enhancing brand awareness

Your packaging shall have all the brand elements like logo, brand name, color scheme, helping customers be aware of your products immediately.

Branding plays an integral role in marketing, no matter your products are on supermarket shelves or online. Packaging design with consistent and strong branding can also keep customers engaged with your product. Creative packaging can evoke positive memories and emotions, which lead to a lasting relationship between the brand and the consumer.

Enhance customer experience

In addition to marketing purposes, packaging design also needs to be practical and functional. So if your packaging provides a useful, handy function to the customer, it can be just as valuable as the product itself.

During the production, sale, and delivery of your product to the end-user, your packaging should provide three main functions, including:

  • Protect: Protecting the product from being damaged by environmental factors. Proper packaging design protects your product until the customer opens it.
  • Storage: Before sending out to the market, the product will be stored in the inventory for a certain period. Good packaging shall ensure your products can be stowed and stored efficiently.
  • Transport: Good packaging makes it easier for the delivery process.

Seaweed, a sustainable source of packaging?

The packaging industry has evolved significantly over the past 20+ years. New and innovative packaging companies are frequently setting trends and pushing the boundaries. However, one obstacle remains a challenge to all in the industry…

Sustainable packaging is important for a whole host of reasons, and can contribute to a better planet on the whole. Luckily, there are many ways that sustainable and ECO-Friendly options can be used in modern packaging manufacturing, but as resources struggle to meet this demand, forward thinking companies are looking for new ways to develop new and sustainable materials to produce the packaging required.

Seaweed seems to be an opportunity in this regard. A company based in Atlanta is looking into developing a source of packaging using Seaweed fibers. The main aim is to replace the need for plastics (and any other materials that pose a threat to the environment). They are working with some biotechnology companies about using these fibers in paper and packaging products.

The benefits of this approach would include a much more energy efficient method and require fewer chemicals to produce, along with a reduced impact on the environment due to the reduced use of plastics and petroleum based packaging.

A Greener opportunity for packaging suppliers

The announcement of this research is an exciting prospect for packaging suppliers like ourselves. At He Tien, we are always mindful of new and innovative ways of using eco friendly methods to product packaging, and will be watching this work closely.

Many other companies, including retailers and store brands are also keen to make a change on this front. Not only to have a positive effect on our planet, but to also meet the consumer demand that is pushing more and more for sustainable packaging. Seaweed could be at the forefront of this change.

Alternatives to plastic and petroleum based materials

The recent hype in regards to sustainable packaging is a positive change, but has not been a smooth transition. It isn’t as easy as just switching to greener materials, it also involves finding and developing these methods in a way that will not be unrealistically expensive.

There has been some progress in the use of natural fibers like straw, hemp, and cotton. Time will tell if these are worthy investments for packaging companies, or If they are even realistic alternatives at all. However, seaweed remains to be a cause for hope. We will be watching this topic closely.

Creative Packaging designs and ideas – 5 picks from our team

Top 5 Picks!

In this article, we have gathered some of our favorite creative designs that we have discovered over the past few weeks. It’s always fun to make a list of what inspires us creatively and finding new creations that influence our desire to make high-quality custom packaging.

1. Creative Meat Packaging

This cleverly designed meat packaging idea caught our eye recently. We have added to our list as it combines an excellent idea to make the meat itself visible to the consumer with a playful use of color and minimal design.

When thinking outside of the box, it is possible to create packaging that not only contains and protects the item itself, but goes the extra mile to make the packaging compliment the product. This packaging is a perfect example of this, and its something that we will see more of the future.

Food packaging benefits greatly from windowed designs. When consumers are buying food, the ability to see and inspect the food is nearly essential. This designs makes the meat shopping experience fun, and also allows for maximum view of the meat itself which only serves to be more convenient.

2. Fun and clever tissue dispenser

Any packaging that makes us laugh almost always makes it into our favorites. This design for a tissue dispenser box is one of those that are also clever. The structure is extremely simple, a cardboard box that has a die-line cut out the hole in the top. 

What sets it apart from the rest is the clever and playful design that uses the product to interact with the customized packaging design.

This creative approach to design helps to create a lasting impression with consumers that help brand identity and sales.

3. ECO Friendly Wine Packaging

A professional packaging company in 2021 should be thinking about the effect that it has on the planet. We are extremely focused on sustainability and ECO-friendly working practices at He Tien

So, when we saw this original and mindfully sustainable packaging choice for wine bottles, we instantly loved it! The design’s resourceful nature impresses us as it is not often seen within the wine industry.

4. Simple and Elegant - Teapea Tea Bag

Simplicity is often a great design choice for packaging. Especially when the emphasis relies on the shape of the product itself. An example of this ‘less is more design approach can be seen in this really awesome teabag, ‘tea pea’ style packaging. 

The designers use a shape of a tea pea as inspiration for this packaging, presumably because it’s a fun and visually engaging idea, but also because it excellently serves the  functionality of the product. The ‘tea pea’ shape actually works very well as a tea bad and as the packaging. Bravo!

5. Nut Container - Simple but Effective

This design is all about the theme of the packaging. Using the wooden imagery as the packaging design provokes the idea of nature, forests, trees, and wood. As the product itself is nuts and seeds, it is obvious why they choose this imagery to bring attention to their product. 

Another very creative addition to this design is the windowed die line cut on the front. Allowing the consumer to see the food itself, 

We hope you enjoyed our top 5 picks! If you feel inspired to create your own custom packaging, He Tien have you covered every step of the way.

The Die Cutting Process in Packaging

Within the packaging industry, the method of Die Cutting is an essential part of the process. It encompasses a huge part of the manufacturing stage and can be applied in many different ways.

Die-cutting is the process of cutting materials into patterns and shapes using die, based on the requirements of the designer. Die-cutting originates in letterpress printing and has evolved steadily into the modern Die-cutting practice we see in today’s packaging industry.

Die-Cut packaging can be seen everywhere in retail, e-commerce and even industrial packaging.

The main use of the Die-cutting process is to create custom packaging. Utilizing the die allows for intricate designs, shapes and branding options which make it widely used among brand packaging. It can also process custom packaging in large quantities, fast and more easily than other methods.

The Die-Cutting Process explained

A Die-cutter works in a surprisingly simple way. The mechanism is pressed into the material, e.g. balsa wood, and using force to ‘cut’ the desired shape. Overtime, the accuracy and precision of the Die-cutting method has increased and has been become an extremely effective way of creating custom packaging.

To start the Die-cutting process, the packaging outline is transferred to the ‘die board’, ready for the cutting stage. To achieve this, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is generally used to digitally impose the design lines onto the board via laser cutters.Ensuring that all of the lines are mapped out accurately onto the board is very important before progressing to the next stage.

There are several types of die-cutting that are used for different requirements. Typically, ‘through cutting’ is used to cut through the material and create a shape of material. This is most often used for custom packaging designs. ‘Creasing’ is used to indent the material with a line, which makes it easier to fold. ‘Scoring’ similar to creasing, leaves a partial cut or indentation. Finally, ‘Perforating’ creates a line of small cuts into the material which results in a line that is easy to tear.

The Methods of Die-cutting

As custom packaging is becoming more and more popular, so are the demands involved. There are many different methods perfect for achieving different results and packaging types:

Flat Bed Die Cutting

Most often used with small batch size packaging manufacturing. It uses steel rule dies to deliver a cut through the material and is used very commonly among the packaging manufacturing industry.

  • Platen Die sizes from 12”x 12” to 24”x 30”
  • Cutting pressure from 20 to 40 tons – Able to process materials of many thicknesses
  • Fast process and turnaround times
  • Low cost

Rotary Die Cutting

Most suited to high volume runs Rotary die cutting uses a cylindrical die to cut shapes out of material. It utilizes a circular motion using blades around the cylinder to cut into the material.

  • Processing at high speeds
  • Tight tolerances
  • Higher cost
  • Max Width 7”

WaterJet Die Cutting

This method fabricates cut through parts using a CNC based water jet machine. A stream of water at a psi of 60,000 is used to cut through materials quickly. It is able to run low to medium batch sizes and is ideal for produce prototypes for qualification studies.

  • Cutting table is 5 ft x 10ft
  • Almost no limitation of material thickness
  • No die costs
  • Suitable for rapid prototyping

Final Thoughts

Here at He Tien Package Co., like many others within the packaging industry makes use of Die-cutting daily. To make quality custom packaging at the level of professionalism that we do, Die-Cutting is essential and allows us to honor packaging orders of all different types.

The process of Die-cutting also allows for finishing techniques on various packaging to make custom designs more special. ‘Embossing/Debossing’ allows for raised of depressed designs on the material. ‘UV Printing’ is an elegant choice for luxury packaging branding and ‘Foil Stamping’ which stamps a design onto the packaging itself.

Die-Cutting benefits the packaging industry on both sides of the fence, from client to manufacture, the whole process is made easier with the use of Die-cutting machines.

How Luxury Packaging Works

The role of luxury packaging goes far beyond the aesthetic. Although, the main draw of luxury packaging is that it is highly attractive and high quality, it serves not only make the product eye catching but to give the consumer an experience, more specifically, an enjoyable shopping experience.

These days, the act of shopping is primarily a visual activity, partly thanks to e-commerce giants such as Amazon. More and more people shop online, scrolling through a seemingly endless volume of items with all sorts of various types, styles and brands.

All the while, the focus is the end goal, the product that grabs your attention and stands out from the crowd. Also, the same holds true for the retail setting. Luxury brands and high end retailers know that if the act of shopping itself is a rewarding experience then consumers by inclined to do it more. It is a there to establish a link between brand and the consumer.

Successful luxury packaging is more than just visually pleasant and a means of physical protection for the product. It can reach into our sense of smell, touch and sound.

Packaging that leaves an impression

By appealing to as many senses as possible through luxury packaging, you are solidifying the link to your brand by leaving a positive impression with the consumer.

You are much more likely to remember a product with sensual packaging because it will resonate with you in more ways than just your sight.

Every interaction should be considered to maximize this effect. The first time you look at a product, pick it up from the shelf, the smell it gives of or even then sound it makes when you grab it. It adds to the likelihood that it will leave an impression.   

The importance of elegance

Elegant luxury packaging can benefit hugely from subtlety. When looking at packaging that is cluttered with bright colors, has too many visual elements or an obvious over selling of the brand, it can often achieve the opposite effect than it intends.

Luxury packaging conveys its status by letting the brand speak for itself. Use of minimal color is very common among luxury brands.

For example, packaging with subtle colors, a spacious text design, tasteful branding or good quality material can help to convey the value of the product.

Also, using high end materials along with metallic finishes give the impression of elegance and quality.

Quality and practicality

For a product to look great and maintain its luxury presence, it has to be practical and good quality. Packaging that looks worn or dented will only serve to devalue the product.

Ensure that packaging is able to stand up against knocks and the process of transit makes all the difference. Also, protection against environmental stresses like humidity is vital as it can cause problems to the shape and structure of the packaging.

The pristine condition of materials when displayed for sale is essential and thought should always be put in to how to combat the elements.

Conclusion

The main thing to consider for your luxury packaging, Is that it should not beg for attention from the consumer. The subtle design and use of color suggests that it speaks for itself and draws customers to it.  

Primary, Second and Tertiary Packaging – Here’s the Differences

Packaging is an everyday part of our lives and it’s easy to overlook the complexity that is involved. Each has its own unique purpose and design and also its own category. In this article we will talk at these categories and dive into each levels of packaging known as primary, secondary and tertiary packaging. There is some surprising differences between each type of packaging in terms how they are used and why they matter.

What is Primary Packaging?

Packaging which is in direct contact with the product

There are many examples of primary packaging among various industries. The main role that primary packaging holds is that of product protection and preservation. If we look at a box of laundry detergent pods as an example. The primary packaging would be the little plastic bags that hold each individual pod of liquid. Without the primary packaging in this instance, it wouldn’t serve any purpose.

The primary packaging is perfect for holding and preserving the product itself, but would be a terrible way to actually store or display the product. That is where the outer packaging is used, it’s easier to be stored on a shelf, is easily held and can have information on them and protects the main product from light, moisture or any other elements that could negatively affect it

although primary packaging is commonly recognized at retail packaging, second packaging plays that role commonly as well. For example, in the laundry detergents case, this secondary packaging contains all of the design elements and marketing of the brand.

So to some up, primary packaging can cover many instances, but is always the packaging which is in contact with the product itself. It can include, cereal boxes, soda cans, detergent pod bags, chocolate bar packaging and many more!

And then there is Secondary Packaging

Packaging that groups together several units into an easy identifiable package

Secondary packaging is used when grouping products together so that can be more easily moved, stocked and counted as inventory. This is known as a Stock Keeping Unit or SKU. We generally see secondary packaging being used in smaller shipments of products and usually consist of the box itself, separators, interior padding and also reinforcement to prevent any damage to the box.

Secondary packaging is mainly thought about when the word ‘packaging’ is mentioned. It is usually the branded customized boxes that stock shelves at retail stores or packaging that incorporates innovative and creative design ideas.

Secondary packaging can also be further customized. It can also be the packaging used to contain multiple custom boxes within a warehouse or retail store. It is easy to confuse these types of packaging as many of the aspects overlap and their uses are blurred. Retail stores can receive secondary packaging that contains shipments of stock that doubles as marketing for the brand itself.

And finally Tertiary Packaging

Tertiary packaging is used as bulk packaging or transit packaging.

 Tertiary packaging takes the role when transporting large numbers of goods safely to their destination. They house and contain boxes full of retail ready packaging on route to distribution centers.

Tertiary packaging is made as a self-contained unit which makes it easier to handle, store, and be used to ship goods with. It can often contain several cardboard boxes wrapped together tightly to limit the amount of which the packaging is bumped around in transit. This kind of

Why use customizable packaging?

Custom packaging makes a big difference and is vital when creating a successful brand. From a customer’s point of view, customized packaging creates a positive impact on your brand and makes it memorable.

At He Tien, we strive to deliver on many aspects of quality packaging solutions and have outlined some key points that make custom packaging so important.

Custom Packaging Will Make Your Products Memorable

In this way, the ability to customize packaging correctly is essential among packaging companies and more importantly an investment for any business owner. Furthermore, customized packaging allows for the ability to cater to the needs of the customers based on the brand, and usually even incorporates subtle design choices and color theory to influence consumer decisions. So, we recommend always making sure to take advantage of packaging customization to maximize your businesses potential.

The Best Custom Packaging Makes A Good First Impression

Similar to  visually appealing packaging that stands out from the crowd, the first impression is also very important for successful packaging. It determines not only the likelihood of somebody purchasing the product, but if their first impression is a positive one, it makes them all the more likely to talk about it and remember it in the future! This is an excellent way to increase sales and brand awareness. Custom packaging is a perfect way to achieve this.

5 ways Packaging Marketing will change in 2021

The packaging industry is always evolving, rich in new trends and technologies. Following the COVID 19 pandemic, social distancing rules have contributed to a huge rise in the use of mail order and food packaging. This increase in demand increases in parallel with the innovation and creative decisions that packaging businesses are making to compete in a competitive industry, and fortunately it also sees a refreshing dedication to sustainability.

As the packaging industry evolves, the key changes and trends remain true to the original purpose. Protection of package contents and increasing consumer appeal remain the key focus for packaging companies. To this end, creative new products and ideas continue to dominate the packaging landscape.

As for materials, 2021 is seeing a continued transition from single use plastics or papers to recyclable papers and ECO-friendly products. In this article, we will be exploring this among other reasons that packaging marketing will change in 2021, and we have come up with 5 of the main ways in with Packaging Marketing will change in 2021.

1. Increase in Sustainability

Sustainable packaging has remained a hot topic among the packaging industry or a while. 2021 is no different; in many ways it is picking up steam across the board and is being aided in part by consumer hype and demand. ECO friendly materials will be used much more frequently and will thankfully contribute to a greener future for our planet. Companies are embracing this change and you are able to see evidence of this on any major E-commerce website. A simple change like changing plastic bags to paper bags will have a huge long-term influence and can be even be seen on Amazon. So, although core function of modern packaging remains the same, sustainability and ECO friendliness as a major new role that the industry needs to fill as has gone a long way to do so in 2021.

2. E-commerce will remain strong

Now, more than ever, e-commerce is dominating. For obvious reasons, customers prefer to shop online than visit stores and although the pandemic will hopefully continue to see a decline, the practicality and ease of use realized from online selling will remain. Hence, the need for fresh, useful and creative packaging companies. A main aspect of packaging that is improving along with this trend, is the packaging ability to safe guard its products. Many brands have started to introduce a dual-layered packaging system to aid in this. For this reason E-commerce packaging will continue to grow in 2021 and be a major aspect of the future of packaging.

3. Focus on Customization

So, as we have established, a packaging’s main use is to keep its contents safe and aid in making a product sellable and attractive to the eye. At He Tien, we believe that the fun really starts with customizable packaging and we enjoy seeing that 2021’s packaging trends seem to be embracing this. An increasingly competitive industry such as packaging see’s its major plays creating new and innovative ways to stand out from the crowd and customizable packaging is an accessible and attractive way that consumers can be jump on board. Offering a customizable packaging option for customers opens up so many possibilities for them, making packaging useable in a whole range of ways, including raising brand awareness and increasing consumer appeal.

4. The effect of COVID 19

It goes without saying that compared to the tragic loss of life and pain caused by the pandemic, any way that the packaging industry suffered pails in significance. But suffer it did, and was unfortunately affected by the lack of materials due to tougher movement from places such as the US, China and Europe. This forced many to find alternative distribution networks and hindered the workflow of many companies. Thankfully, this seems to be easing. Recovery is being helped by in demand items being ordered across the world. Items such as face masks and sanitizers are leading the way. Furthermore, safe and hygienic packaging is making a huge impact and is rising significantly among the online medium. We expect this trend to continue to rise through-out 2021. 

5. The use of color

Finally, we would like to focus on color. A huge yet often overlooked aspect of packaging. Color has the power to convey emotions and feelings that most other sensual mediums cannot. For example, a blue package will have a calming effect on the recipient, red will hint at caution and a sense of urgency, whilst purple will influence a creative outlook. Of course, this is subjective, but there have been many studies into this and a well established color theory is widely accepted. Companies often use bold colors on their packaging as a means of advertisement or to match the products use. It is also used to make packaging more attractive and eye catching. The strategy is clear and will be seen playing out via many packaging companies in 2021.

Lego – Approach to Sustainability

Danish toy company LEGO is an iconic brand, and has logged a considerable boost in consumer interest since the affects of COVID 19’s lockdowns. During this time, LEGO has shown repeatedly that their mindset is committed to sustainability. In this article we will explore several aspects of their approach and look at the impact it will take on the future of packaging.

 

Ditching the single use plastic bag

16th September 2020, LEGO announced that they will be swapping their single use plastic bags for recyclable ones. An encouraging step for such an large iconic brand, and one that leaves us hopeful that other similar companies will follow in their footsteps. This is part of an announced self stated ambition to ensure all of its packaging will be “sustainable by the end of 2025.” The recyclable FSC-certified recyclable paper bags are used to pack the loose bricks. It is durable, lightweight, and able to enhance the building experience. To develop this new material, they have tested several prototypes with hundreds of parents and children to ensure user experience is not hindered by the new design.

Using recycled plastic bottles

Although, not strictly packaging.. LEGOs commitment to sustainability also involves a prototype brick made from recycled plastic bottles. This transition is still in its early stages and LEGO expect it may be some time before we see them appear in their sold products. However, it’s great to see these changes in progress and demonstrates the impact of the combined will of consumers to change the future. “We know kids care about the environment and want us to make our products more sustainable. Even though it will be a while before they will be able to play with bricks made from recycled plastic, we want to let kids know we’re working on it and bring them along on the journey with us” says LEGO groups Tim Brooks.

Looking to the future

LEGO’s plan for the future means making all of their packs recyclable or renewable by 2025. The sustainable materials team has said that they started to phase out single use plastic bags in their stores during 2019 and will continue to develop and refine them before being rolled out in full by 2025. Although, the process will be complicated, it will involve…

– introduction of new machines to make the new packs to produce millions of boxes a day across five factories around the world.

– phasing each change to ensure LEGO can continue to get LEGO to children around the world.

– continuing to explore other sustainable materials for use in the production of bricks

– Ensure bricks produced today will fit with those made over 60 years ago, while being durable and safe enough to be handled by children.
