If you have a new product you want to get out on the market, you are going to need to create a package that will help you sell your product. The packaging for your product is just as important as the product itself. You need attractive packaging in order to move your product, which is why you should put thoughtful consideration into the design of your package for your product.
Tip #1: Give Yourself Time for Package Design
Designing the package for your product should not be an afterthought. The design of the package should happen alongside the development of your product. As you work to design your product, you should be working on sketches for the type of package design you want to use with your product.
Taking your time to develop the product packaging, instead of rushing the packing into the end of the product development process, will give you time to test out different designs and even different packaging material. You will have the time to choose the best design for your product and put real thought into creating a great package design.
Tip #2: Don't Overwhelm the Package
When it comes to the information you put on the package, make sure you don't cram every part of the package with words. Of course, you need to include information as such any necessary warnings and product material you are legally required or advised to put on the package.
You are going to want to include information about the product as well, such as the name of the product and what it does. Just make sure that there is also blank space that isn't filled with words. Simple packaging can help move your product.
Tip #3: Make Your Product Stand Out
Next, you need to carefully consider the colors you use on your package. If you already have an established brand, you are going to want the colors you choose to match or flow with your overall brand.
You also need to consider the packaging of who you are competing against. You want your package to stand out on the shelf. Investigate where your product will be placed in stores, and make sure the colors and designs you choose will allow your product to stand out on the shelf and attract attention.
Making your product stand out is not just about the colors it is about the typography you use as well. You want to use text that is easy for your target market to read.
Show your potential product packaging to multiple people in your target audience to make sure the design, colors, and font appeal to them. Take your time developing the product packaging, and remember that the packaging for your product is going to help sell your product, so invest in the process.
