Custom tins as luxury packaging?
You came up with an idea for a product and decided to turn it into reality or you simply want to give a gift to a friend and want it to be as special as possible. The product or the gift is very important but the packaging is what makes a great first impression. As you know, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
We have been manufacturing packaging for a very long time. We specialize in custom tins which is one of the most preferred types of packaging for creating value. Over the years we have done many projects for luxurious items and we have seen so many different ideas that were all great. However, three common features stood out across all product groups.
First, luxurious products aren’t for the mass market but instead for an exclusive group of people. However, that exclusive group is different for every brand and product. Companies should really know their customers and their style. The packaging should only be decided with them in mind. This packaging should also reflect the brand perception with its material, colors, and design. We almost always recommend working with an experienced and talented designer as well.
Brand experience is a big part of the buying decision when it comes to luxurious goods. With the increase in online sales after the pandemic, companies are trying to come up with new ways of creating an experience for their customers. One of the ways this can be done is by creating an experience with unboxing. To succeed, attention to detail is a must. The way the product is placed, the fit, the look when you first open it, and the feel all contribute to it.
Last but not least, this packaging has to be unique. It shouldn’t be something that you can see everywhere. There is a very fine line between unique and strange though. The goal is to create exclusivity. It is very hard to be exclusive when you look and feel like everything else in the market, including other luxurious products or way too different than everything else.
Customs tins as the name says are unique. They are metallic and naturally have a luxurious look and feel. They are easily customizable with printing and embossing effects. They can have added features like hinges and inside trays. We also do a good job of manufacturing them :) It still comes down to you to put in the time and the effort to create the ultimate luxury packaging for your product. As Coco Chanel put it “in order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”.
