The packaging design process made easy by A3 Design & Print

Good products start with great packaging but knowing where to begin is often the hard part. That’s where we come in. At A3, we support you through the entire production process, from the design stage to the printing and execution.

We get involved with the creative thinking process from the start – taking the time to listen first and understand exactly what your requirement is before we create the packaging right here in the UK. It is this approach that ensures your packaging is always perfectly suited to your product.

We’ve put together this simple step-by-step guide to help get you started and take the stress out of the process!

1. Know your packaging

Know your packaging considerations

Before you even think about designing your packaging, there are five important considerations:

  1. How is my product being dispatched?
  2. How is my product being displayed?
  3. How does my product need protecting?
  4. What quantity do I need?
  5. What budget do I have per unit?
