Spruce Up the Holiday Packaging Experience of Your Customers

Holiday packaging is not just about getting your season's specials safely to your customers. Think of it as another way to delight your customers, through memorable packaging. Always keep the customer experience in mind when designing packaging. Would their unboxing experience be joyful enough to share on social media? Making your customers feel that you really put thought into the packaging is already a win.

Now, sprucing up your holiday packaging isn't as simple as putting Yule elements on your design and calling it a day. At best, that approach could just underwhelm your customers; at worst, they might not notice your products at all and buy from your competitor. If you're unsure how to start, we listed a couple of tips you can follow when designing your holiday packaging.

1. Think of your brand when designing

Ensure that your holiday packaging will still reflect your brand identity beyond the season. Using generic holiday elements for your packaging can dilute brand recognition for your business. Incorporate your brand logo and elements into your packaging design. You can also use your brand's colors, provided they blend well with the theme.

2. Don't go all-out

It can be tempting to just go all-out when designing your holiday packaging. Over-packaging your product by adding too many custom elements will only drive up the costs, with you paying couriers more for size and weight.

Creating a memorable packaging experience for your customers is still possible without spending too much. You can contact suppliers ahead of the season to avoid holiday premiums. Also, you can opt to use mailers instead of boxes for your packages. Mailers weigh less and are more streamlined, therefore cheaper to ship. Keep in mind this would depend on your product. Using boxes instead of mailers is more suitable for bulkier products, for example.

3. Invest in reusable packaging

Using reusable packaging for your products is not just eco-friendly, it can also be free marketing for your brand. Nowadays, many consumers prefer sustainable products and packaging. Not only will your customers appreciate that they're supporting an environmentally conscious business, you'll also be helping the environment with your packaging.

4. Choose a trusted printing company

An eye-catching and on brand holiday packaging design is just half the work. The other half is the durability of the packaging itself. A trusted and reliable online printing company like PrintRunner always makes sure that your holiday packaging is at its best from the moment it leaves your hands until it reaches the customer’s doorstep.

Using only high-quality materials for all its print products, PrintRunner offers reliable and efficient printing to our customers. This enables us to offer our customers competitive pricing, without sacrificing quality and quantity.

How Do I Design Effective Holiday Printing?

Make the holiday packaging experience of your customers even more special through custom packaging. Including custom elements into your design will help differentiate your product from the rest of the other holiday specials from your competitors.

Customizing is easy with PrintRunner's online design tool. You can use this free tool on the order page of all our print products. After you've entered the size, quantity, and other specifications of your order, you can click on "Design Your File Online" to open the design tool.
