Frequently asked questions
Why use a professional designer for your packaging?
Engaging a professional graphic designer for your packaging design is a great way to ensure your products are presented with the highest quality and stay true to your brand identity. The packaging of your product is the first impression a potential buyer sees — beautiful design is an easy way to put your brand’s best foot forward.
Working with us also allows you to delegate your ideas and requirements to someone with the expertise to convert your thoughts into reality. We know how to help your product stand out from the crowd. Meanwhile, you can be focusing on the important things – running your business.
What technical requirements does my packaging artwork need to meet?
We know the best practice for setting up your finished art. This includes what colour it needs to be in (Pantone versus CMYK), what bleed is required, and if a custom dieline is required. Badly formatted finished art results in delays in production and unexpected end results when putting together your final product.
Does packaging design require special printing?
Don’t know your offset from your digital? Letterpress from lithograph? We can quickly identify the the best printing method for your packaging project and who is the best person to do it. Not all printers are created equal, with different printers specialising in different formats and methods. We can also recommend the best card and paper stocks for your product, and any additional print finishes. You don’t have to be the expert – use our knowledge to find the best result for your budget.
