Time is of the essence for shoppers – and for also brands. With shoppers making more frequent, but shorter, visits to stores, the window of brand influence on their purchasing decisions is shrinking. Retail packaging boxes are an effective way of maximising the opportunity to influence these decisions where they happen and matter most – at the shelf.

The power of packaging for retail

Your retail packaging boxes don’t just make it easier for a store to display and restock your goods. It should also attract the shopper’s eye, make them want to look closer and ultimately pick-up your product from the shelf and purchase it.

Retail packaging has been proven to enhance and encourage a consumer’s path to purchase and ultimately boost sales. In our blog ‘How Shelf Ready Packaging can increase sales’ we reveal how your packaging boosts a consumer’s path to purchase.

How we design packaging for retail

When shopping every second counts, shoppers are quick to decide in their path to purchase. It takes them on average 5-7 seconds to search and select a product. We can help shoppers make faster, better decisions, by understanding their behaviour and using our expertise to make it easier to find what they are looking for.  With our retail packaging boxes we aim to:

  • ATTRACT: Create a stand out design using contrast, colour and shape, and combine your brand graphics to make your packaging distinctive. 
  • ENGAGE: Design packaging in-line with your primary pack to ensure products are visible, well-presented and optimised on the shelf.  
  • CONVERT:  Make it easy for shoppers to take the product from the shelf and use clear messages to give them a reason to buy (now)!
