Custom Packaging Design is a critical component to delivering a product to market. A package’s design must perform well on multiple fronts in order to effectively carry out its part in convincing a customer to purchase. Advantage has over 25 years’ experience in custom packaging design.

 

 

 

A package’s design must be produced in a manner that will, first and foremost, protect the product, ensuring that it is shipped and moved without damage. Packaging design should assist in capitalizing on transit options. Our clients save money when transportation space is minimized. The correct packaging design will allow for the greatest amount of products in one shipment.

 

 

 

Beyond the transit process, a package design needs to be more than functional; it must be interesting and alluring. Visual appeal can be achieved using a combination of shapes, colors, sizes, and substrates.
