Instant bottom line profit with right sized packaging

Today’s brands must be responsive to market trends to capture every consumer action they can.

Keeping up with these fast changing trends impacts your product’s packaging in some way: size, shape, copy or graphics may need to be altered. Most brands change something related to each of their products every 12 to 18 months, if not sooner.

Learn how to get control over these changes through right sizing, and how that may improve your business.

What is ‘right sizing’?

Right sizing means you adapt packaging in size, shape, weight or volume.

Such small changes have an even bigger impact the further you move through the supply chain: secondary packaging, transporting and warehousing may all be affected.

Capturing and executing right sizing early on in the design process gives you immediate efficiencies and cost savings, as well as better control over your product and packaging innovation lifecycle.
