    What Is Consumer Packaging?

    Consumer packaging refers to the materials encasing a product when it is presented to potential customers. In many instances, the package is the first thing buyers notice about the item and can directly impact whether they decide to purchase it.

    The benefits of a well-designed and -constructed package include:


    Any package should prevent damage to the item during shipping and handling, whether in the manufacturing plant, on the loading docks, at the retail outlet or in the consumers’ hands. In some cases, packaging can also help preserve and prolong the product’s shelf life.

    Attractive packaging makes the product stand out from others on the store shelf and entices the shopper to make a purchase. It can also convey information about the item that consumers want to know.

    Effective packaging can promote brand awareness by allowing consumers to identify the product quickly and associate it with your company.

    Your packaging should make it easy for the customer to handle, use and store your product, which can increase the likelihood of repeat purchases.

    Custom packaging ensures the perfect fit for the product and reduces material waste. You can pass these savings on to the consumer in the form of lower prices, helping your company win at retail.
