No matter what business you are in, there is undoubtedly a sea of competition out there. Finding a way to differentiate your business from the dozens, hundreds, or thousands out there can feel next to impossible. But have you considered the role shipping boxes can have?
Creating something that differentiates your business from the rest out there can be difficult but having packaging that stands out can be an integral thing. Here are five ways that having custom packaging can be a game-changer for your business.
Creating brand awareness is one of the most important things that a business can do. Consumers identify brands based on their logos, their mission statements, and their products. When you can create that awareness, it becomes an invaluable connection between consumer and manufacturer.
With the right custom packaging, customers (and potential customers) will see your logo first and foremost. That will help to ingratiate potential customers with your brand, making you more easily identifiable later on down the line.
There is something to be said about the excitement of receiving an order. You know that it’s coming but unless you follow the tracking meticulously, you don’t know exactly when it is coming. It is part of the excitement of ordering something.
But when it shows up in packaging that’s the same everyone else’s, you can’t tell it apart from the rest. With custom packaging, when it arrives, consumers can be excited to know precisely what they have in their hands. That only helps to raise the excitement level while also furthering brand awareness of your product and company.
Creating custom shipping boxes also offers another distinct advantage: ensuring that the box is the right size each and every time. While that might not sound like that big of a deal, it has two important benefits that cannot be overlooked, one of which we will get to below.
But a major benefit is ensuring that your product is protected while in transit. We all know how these postal carriers can be when handling delicate products. With the right sized box, you can ensure that everything is packed tightly and won’t move around. When it doesn’t move around, you know that there is a far lesser chance of dings and damage.
Another important factor in getting the right sized boxes for your shipments is in the cost. A larger package, which then requires more packing materials to prevent damage, all means additional costs that can really pile up over time.
But when you have custom-sized boxes, it equates to far less empty space. The less empty space that you have to contend with, the less space that you have to fill with packing materials. The savings can really pile up quickly depending on how many items you ship out during a regular week of business.
Better Size Selections
Working with standard boxes means getting a fairly limited selection in terms of size. But when you go with custom packaging boxes, you can really get detailed about the sizes of the boxes that you choose, all of which is great for creating custom packaging no matter how big or small your product may be.
When you create custom packaging, you can create specifications for the sizes needed. That means ordering the proper size for each product to ensure that all products go out in boxes that will fit them properly and keep them amply protected. It is the best way to ship your goods.
