You’ve probably noticed that we recently launched an exciting new packaging range. For those of you new to these products, please find below some useful tips to get you started on your first orders.
TIP N°1 – SUITABLE SIZING
If your client is selling a range of products, make sure you produce packaging in a range of sizes to suit their requirements and ensure that their products fit snuggly.
TIP N°2 – PROTOTYPING
Before placing your order, try and build your own prototype of the product. Output a laser print of the item, cut it out and make it up into the finished shape. This will help you identify any glaring mistakes early on.
TIP N°3 – PRE-PRODUCTION TESTS
If you require quite a lot of copies, consider creating a pre-production test. Our prices for low volumes are very reasonable so it’s worth having an initial short run done to sign off with the customer and check that you’re happy with all aspects including the weight bearing ability before going into the full production run.
TIP N°4 – VERTICAL MARKETING
Once you have a nice sample of a previous product produced, make sure you reach out to other customers in the same vertical market to show them your capabilities.
