Innovative Package Designs For Maximum ROI

Over 65% of consumers say creative package design influenced their decision to try a new product. Even in a competitive environment, consumers typically decide what to buy in under 10 seconds. The best product package designs balance material cost, damage protection and brand perception for the highest return on investment.

Other packaging design companies specialize in design services like packaging optimization or graphic design. BoldtSmith Packaging is different. We handle package engineering, optimization and branding in-house and use our custom-made CNC machine to produce samples internally. Our customers then own those packaging specifications and can purchase them from whichever supplier they choose. BoldtSmith packaging designers have engineered retail, e-commerce, industrial, food and military packaging. BoldtSmith Packaging offers a wide variety of packaging design services handling all product and packaging types – primary, secondary, and tertiary.

What is Packaging Design?

Packaging designers keep the function and form of the package in mind to create well-designed packages. Your package engineer is experienced in all phases of the product supply chain and logistics to design a reliable, efficient and appealing package. Packaging design improves product protection and saves you money on packaging material costs. It also has a substantial impact on transport costs, warehouse space and packaging time. This means you save money through the entire supply chain and end up with the best packaging solution for your product.

Benefits of Working with Packaging Engineers

Working with a packaging designer has several benefits since they are dedicated to quality and efficiency. They:

Utilizing in-house sample-making machines, we are able to create packaging designs and samples internally. This includes corrugated, paperboard, foam, clamshells, films, etc. We also have a woodshop for creating wooden crates and pallets. With this service, we do not have to rely on packaging manufacturers to create packaging samples. You get your packaging samples faster and designed exactly as specified by our packaging engineers.

BoldtSmith in-house packaging engineers specialize in creating corrugated and paperboard designs. This resource allows us to create corrugated and paperboard designs and samples internally. Packaging types for corrugated and paperboard range from retail packaging to displays and master cartons.

Products shipping through challenging supply chains such as LTL require packaging solutions designed to provide adequate protection. This can be in the form of wooden pallets and crates used for expendable solutions or metal crates used for returnable systems. Utilizing design software, we create 3D renderings of pallets and crates. Then we create specifications to bid out through packaging manufacturers.

Fragile products require specialized packaging solutions whether you are shipping knockdown furniture or a microwave. The packaging must be designed with an understanding of how the product and packaging will be handled during shipping. Exploring all protective packaging materials is a critical step in exploring optimized protective packaging designs. Common materials include foam, honeycomb, molded pulp, etc.
