Although the packaging design of the product is often reviewed at the end of product production, the packaging design has a major impact on the lifetime of the product.
Talking about product design, there are several factors to consider, which have a significant impact on it.
The fact that every producer should take into consideration are the following:
- a clear vision of the product itself and its path to end-users
- selection of the packaging materials and design quality in accordance with the budget
- The impact of the packaging design on marketing products
- effective quality control of packaging design and printing
A clear vision of the product itself and its path to end-users
Customers are inclined to identify the quality of the product with the quality of the design.
A well-prepared strategy and a clearly defined group of consumers whom the product is targeted at are the keys to success.
Targeted packaging design for a particular consumer circle can greatly help producers to successfully launch products into the market. This applies to a whole spectrum of specialties that depend on the industry and the purpose of the product.
Packaging design for a specific market demands unique and efficient solutions which are not just about the design of the packaging but also the customization and functionality of the design to the target user group.
This implies a tailor-made design of the product packaging; a custom label, a customized label printing, and packaging, customization of special techniques (Braille’s letter translation and Braille’s inspection).
Selection of the packaging materials and design quality in accordance with the budget
Often, it is the budget that controls packaging design and production process. The question of quality plays heavily on what package producers can produce economically. Knowing the costs involved in designing the package such as; the necessary materials, the quantity, and other elements, largely affects the final choice of a package design. Producers often face a challenge in trying to produce the highest quality of design within the budget.
But what is more important: the cost or the impression? This issue is equally important when it comes to a new product design as well as a new design of the existing product.
The budget is a realistic limitation every producer meets and the good impression that they want to convey to the customers is every producer’s desire.
No cost or quality should be ignored because the first bad impression is hard to repair, while the positive impression attracts new users and/or retains old ones.
The impact of the packaging design on marketing products
Packaging design is the most sales-effective and cost-effective marketing tool.
There are many factors that make a packaging attractive: material, print and letter sizes, labels, content, graphics and images, and even the colors that are used in the product design.
The possibilities are innumerable.
But there are some dangers as well…
If the design is overly complicated or stuffed with information, its effectiveness may be ruined. If the design stays on the side of simplicity, there is a danger for the product to be forgotten in a short time span.
The right combination makes everything fall into place and ends with perfection.
It is often the finishing element that makes the difference between a good and the great final version of the design.
Understanding all this, it is clear that there is a need for quality graphics inspection before final design printing.
Effective control of packaging design
Each producer has the task to make his production more efficient. It implies achieving the best results with the least possible expense.
One of the best investments producers can make for the future of their business is to invest in professional product design.
High-quality packaging design can raise the business to a brand new level.
One of the ways to reduce the cost to a minimum is automation of the production process. Automated packaging technology enables producers to implement an all in one quality control platform which is integrable with the packaging system workflow. The all in one quality control platform includes inspection of text, spelling, artwork, graphics, Braille text, barcode, preprint, and print.
This way, it is possible to avoid errors caused by a human factor in production process control which often results in complete product recalls and therefore unnecessary costs for producers.
