Retail packaging – Why is it important that your product looks great leaving your store?

In the current day and age where businesses are perpetually trying to dial back costs, why should you purchase more expensive packaging?  It is a valid question that doesn’t have a definitive answer.  I like to approach retail packaging differently than other forms of packaging.  After all, this is the face of your product leaving your store.

Good-looking packaging can set you apart from your competitors.  It can add value to the items in the bag.  Retail packaging is all about perception to the customer and having great products in beautiful packaging can add to the perception that your customer is getting a better value.

There are many facets to your business that a customer sees.  The main one is obviously you!  However, they see your employees and how they handle customer service and make a person feel like their business is appreciated.  There is your store and how products are presented for purchase, decorations are put in place, and amenities provided to add value to a customer’s time.  Your website and social media presence also provides a face to your company.

Packaging is one of those facets, although it isn’t always viewed as such.  Putting a customer’s gifts in a nice bag, with ribbon and your name on the bag gives your business a more serious outlook.  The quality of the packaging can truly finish off a great shopping experience for your customer.  When you have been treated great by staff in a beautiful store and you finalize your purchase with gorgeous packaging that feels great in a customer’s hand, the customer will truly feel that their money was well spent.

Great-looking packaging is a perpetual advertisement for you, as well.  When something bought from your store is taken anywhere around town, you know that people are seeing it and the bag is catching their eye.  Unique color combinations and types of bags can set yourself apart from your competition.
