- Use good quality material to package your product
Your product will likely have a lengthy shipping process or will be handled roughly by various labourers and drivers that will help you with the delivery of your products. There is a high chance of damage if your packaging box is made from cheap quality resistant material. Pay attention to the quality of your packaging material and invest wisely.
- Check the size of the Packaging box
The size of the box must be determined after keeping in mind the size and weight of the product. The box must not be too big or too small, it must be the optimal size for the product to ensure the product is safe.
For the sake of inner packaging, you can use bubble wrap, cardboard, or cushioning material. Inner packaging is important as it acts like a protective layer that will protect the product from harsh external conditions
- Use different types of protective material
Every product requires different types of protective material depending on its treatment. One can use highly resilient material for products that are sensitive and crosses more harsh barriers. Non-resilient materials can be used for products where less protection is required. There are different types of foam: open-cell and close cell. Air management pads can be used to observe the maximum shock. There are so many options to cater to your needs, you just need to use the materials that suit your product and its needs.
- Seal the Product Package well
There is obviously a risk of the box opening up due to the various harsh conditions it is subjected to. Sealing the package with tapes provides for extra protection and care. Additionally, you can use pallets for the extra layering. You can add an extra layer of wood on the edges for large or extra sensitive products. The outer layering makes the packaging safer.
- Custom Packaging is flexible
Custom Packaging is a great tool to create different experiences for your customers. You can use a wide variety of colours, textures, and designs for the various range of products that you provide. You can go the extra mile by adding a customized/personal element by sending out little positive notes to your customers. The small unexpected add-ons can get you extra points and create a stronger customer relationship.
- Pre-shipment durability test
Before buying a car, you test-drive it to check if it matches your standards, so when it comes to your packaging, test the package material and boxes before you implement/finalize them. Shake the box, throw it around maybe, do all sorts of fun things, and check if the product is still intact. Try experimenting with different packaging material and boxes, and come to a decision after having checked all the variables.
