How Packaging And Labelling Affects Consumer Buying Choices

Your Product: Revolutionise Your Sales Strategy. The fundamental power of packaging and labelling is marketability and presentation. The first challenge of selling is to have a product which is eye-catching. Around ⅓ of consumer choice is determined by packaging alone. Choices made by the producer can go a long way to presenting a brand as economically-conscious, trustworthy or luxurious. 

The Visual Element to Product Packaging

There are four main visual elements to packaging:

  • The Logo – This is key for recalling emotions that associate with a brand if the connection is positive. The logo is key in forming long term customer relationships
  • Package Colour – This helps to position a brand by influencing the emotional connection to a product, as well as allowing initial opinions of the product to be formed. There are many colour psychology resources available which can help guide your choice.
  • Typography –  This is key in conveying important information (nutritional, recycling, safety warnings), so something which is easily scannable and legible is vital.
  • Unique package design – If your product is luxury, then high-quality packaging could lead to a secondary, word-of-mouth selling opportunity.

Why Packaging is so Important?

Packaging is key at the point of sale. It caterers to a range of motivations for buying. For example, a food product’s packaging appearing untampered with and clean is essential in reassuring the customer in some industries. The Sovereign range of heat-shrink sleeving systems includes highly advanced and innovative full-body and tamper-evident sleevers covering a wide speed range.

What Information do I need on Product Labels?
