Packaging Design Process

The customer requested that the company name and product remain confidential, so we are unable to provide specifics on the project. However, we are able to provide some high-level information.

The product is made of tempered glass and is susceptible to product damage shipping through a small parcel supply chain. The weight and narrowness of the product were key considerations in the package design. It was critical that the product disperse its weight over a cushioned surface during drop tests. Because the product is packed domestically, labor cost was a critical part of the solution.

Variables such as performance, packaging materials, pricing, customer unloading experience, etc. were all included in our analysis. Since BoldtSmith Packaging does not manufacture or sell packaging, we are unbiased as to what material should be utilized in the design. After solutions are developed, we create the specifications which our customer then owns. This gives the procurement department the power to bid through as many packaging suppliers as they please.

During small parcel shipping, products are typically dropped multiple times. The option we decided to move forward with utilized corrugated and PE foam to prevent the product from moving during shipping and provide adequate cushioning. Corrugated caps were utilized to disperse the weight of the product against PE foam. Packaging samples are created in-house using a high-speed CNC table that cuts out corrugated cardboard and foam.
