Why Quality Packaging Equipment is so Important
Let’s do a quick survey.
Take a look at the two boxes below.
Based on appearances alone, which one would you choose? A or B?
It’s a pretty safe guess that you would choose package “B”.
Most people make purchasing decisions based on outer packaging. Even though we’re frequently told not to judge a book by its cover, the reality is that the outside matters (maybe even more than the inside). At least, that’s the case when it comes to buying products.
Not only will people predictably choose a product with a nice looking exterior, they will often proactively form a negative opinion about products that have a bad appearance.
Even more damaging, once someone forms a negative opinion about something, studies have shown that a person will hold on to that negative opinion indefinitely.
From the outset, quality packaging is vitally important. One, it can increase the statistical likelihood of someone buying your product. Two, it can reduce the chances of someone forming an unchangeable negative opinion about your product—before they even try it!
Maintaining a Good Looking Product
Consumers clearly value product packaging, so it’s in a business’s best interest to preserve their product’s appearance. In regards to maintaining good product packaging, a good quality case can only be made by a good quality machine.
To positively impact your sales numbers, you must make your packaging a top priority. Cracked bottles, scratched labels, or dented containers all present poorly. If that’s a persistent problem, then that will add up to a bad reputation for your business.
A good quality case will protect your products and preserve their aesthetics of your products, which will influence your sales. Choosing a good machine that can construct an attractive, sturdy box for your products is essential.
When Packaging Goes Wrong
If your business is growing and you are at a point where you are considering a new automated case erector or partition inserter, choose carefully. There are many advantages of packaging with an automated solution, but there are also some disadvantages of packaging with automation.
One disadvantage is investing in an automated packing machine unable to make good cases consistently. Trying to pack your products in irregularly constructed boxes will not produce desirable results. To maintain the integrity of your product (and your brand), your merchandise must consistently arrive in crisp, clean, quality packaging.
Additionally, with inferior packaging equipment you may face loss of revenue due to slow or low production. A second-rate machine may even ruin the product it’s supposed to protect. Clearly, automation by itself is not a complete solution. It must be the right automated solution.
All the forethought, scoping, and execution that went into developing your product can all be undone if the final packaging is haphazard. This will not help you, but rather sabotage your efforts to achieve success.
