Wherever you are in the world, there’s a packaging business near you. The best way to find the right one? Research. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a checklist of all the important information you need to know before you say yes to the packaging service.
There’s no point even sending the email if the company you’re looking at doesn’t offer the services you require. Make sure you know what you need before you start researching:
Whether your budget is low or high, you’re going to need to find a company who cater to the financial aims for your project. You also need to factor in that if there are adverse weather conditions there might be holding fees and labor shortages. You can always sign an agreement with the service provider before the work saying what you will and will not pay for in the event something out of both yours and the vendor’s control happens.
Again, if they can’t meet your deadlines, (realistic deadlines) you’ll need to find a different vendor. It’s important that you both know what the deadlines are before beginning the project, the vendor will know how realistic your targets are in relation to materials, manufacturing, fulfillment and shipping and coordinating all of those.
These are the 3 most important aspects to look for when researching packaging service providers. Here are the next 3 aspects to consider when researching for your next packaging project:
Design is what will ensure your packaging goes from a pretty shelving piece, to a valuable commodity.
There are a lot of difficulties in getting to the people who make the choices quickly, this is where you want a packaging company that does not have red tape. Where you can pick up the phone or send an email and get an instant reply. A quick turnaround is important when it comes to asking for changes and having them implemented. If you’re working through changes you need to know the people who make the decisions will make them immediately after you’ve hung up the phone; and this leads into the final one.
Above all you should be able to trust your packaging services provider. Trust that they’re giving you the best deal, working to meet your deadlines and collaborate with your brand.
