Walk into your favorite toy store, market, boutique, or electronics retailer and what do you see? A beautiful assortment of products, no doubt. But are you looking at the actual products or the product packaging? Probably a combination of the two. Successful stores invest a lot of time and effort into how their wares are displayed to create an appealing, inviting, and alluring environment. You can be sure the chief buyer can spot the difference between strong versus weak packaging design.

Professional packaging design will give the edge your product needs in a competitive, some say cut-throat retail environment. Think about where your product will be sold, how it will be displayed, and how it will look next to your competitor. We call this establishing the retail context; photos are useful, but there’s really no substitute for seeing the shelf space with your own eyes. In some cases, you may want to create a whole new packaging solution that trumps the competition. This has clear advantages, but it pays to make sure retailers will accept a non-standard packaging format.
