3 Tips To Choose The Right Custom Packaging for Your Product

You may have heard the cliché that the first impression is the last impression. As insipid as this cliché may sound; when it comes to packaging, it holds a lot of value. The first physical touchpoint that your customer has with your product is when they hold the package in their hands.

Studies related to the psychology of shopping show that, “packaging plays a major, if not dominant, role in purchasing decisions. Simply put, the better a product looks on the shelf, the greater the chance it will be rung up at the cash register. Looking good on the shelf isn't just about logos, pictures and colors, however. Consumers want to feel confident that the packaging protects the product at all times (especially when it comes to food). A package should also look as though it will be convenient to use and easy to store in the home.”

At Arka, we provide specialized services for all your packaging needs and we have all kinds of solutions handy for you regarding what kind of packaging works best for your brand. Consider the following tips for choosing the right custom packaging for your product.

1. Keep It Environmentally Friendly

At Arka, we love to keep it green. The sustainability of your packaging is just as important as what is inside the package.  According to a recent survey on sustainable products and packaging, 80% of participants said they felt it was "important or extremely important" for companies to design environmentally conscious products.

As consumers are getting conscious about their carbon footprint, they are more likely to support brands that share their values. At Arka, we are cognizant of this reality and our focus is on suitability. We ensure environmentally friendly packaging through:

  • Using sustainable packaging that can be repurposed
  • Shipping items in bulk
  • Offering carbon-neutral shipping by offsetting emissions
  • Recycling on behalf of our suppliers and offer shipping-friendly items
  • Reducing the size of your packaging
  • Using compostable mailers
  • Working with wholesalers to reduce individual shipments and limit return shipping
  • Offering a returns program for your empty product containers
