“The aesthetics, Security, and Impact resistance of the packaging were all equally as important to the client as price.”
We were up for the task!
- Market: Retail/Craft
- Product: Tray/Lid
- Application: Secure display packaging
- Tooling: New
- RFQ Data: Design and Create tooling for accessible, secure, impact resistant Tray/Lid integrate into open face box design.
- Capacity: Single product Tray/Lid per box
- Material: PET
- Orientation: Candle vase upright on base. The Candle must be physically accessible for touch and smell by consumer.
- Security: Product must be secure in packaging.
Cannot be removed from view opening
- Stacking: Two tier pallets stacked for transit
This product required special attention to accessible display, allowing the consumer to touch, and smell the product without removing it from, or destroying packaging. In addition, the packaging had to support the weight of a second pallet for transit, and efficient warehousing, while meeting the criteria of a 10 drop impact test.
Recently, a Manufacturer of Artisan Candle products, contacted us with a project, requiring packaging for a high volume retail customer. The project focused on a tray/Lid design that would hold, protect, and transport a glass candle vase within an open face cardboard container. The challenges of the project surrounded the clients need to have the product fully accessible to the consumer for touch, and smell, while at the same time being safely confined by the packaging it is shipped, and displayed in.
Not only were the requirements of the client a challenge, but the distributor added a quality specification requiring the packaging to support 2 tiers stacking on pallets for transport, while surviving 10 individual drop/impact tests without breakage.
Several design models were tested for impact resistance and part security before finalizing the winning design.
After final design approval, we have a completed tool ready for final trial, and set up.
In addition to the structural and dimensional requirements, the product also undergoes a final aesthetic review to ensure all marketing values are met before release to retail floor space.
Packaging design directly impacts: efficient manufacturing process, assembly, quality, distribution capability, sustainability and purchasing behavior. It has the power to enhance user satisfaction with the product, which in turn enhances brand preference and repeat purchases. Packaging design has a direct impact on costs and revenues in both CJK’s and our client’s operations.
