What does “customized packaging” mean? I am not talking about a specific print or logo to market your name or increase brand awareness. I am not referring to actual custom printed cartons or labels to put your brand name on display. I am not writing about specific carton designs to improve shelf appeal to the consumers.
Although custom packaging is definitely an essential part of packaging, today I want to examine the broader picture and how customizing your packaging methods can improve your manufacturing processes. I want to talk about the ability to offer product protection to insure it arrives damage-free. I want to review over-all cube optimization so you minimize distribution and shipping expenses.
There are many ways one can go about packaging – but not every option is optimal for every situation. Here at Nichols, we want to focus on those methods that are most beneficial to you and controlling costs.
