Packaging in China: how to find the right provider?
While finding products in China has became a child’s play with the advent of internet and large platforms like Alibaba, finding the right provider for packaging isn’t always easy. Indeed, while a product is already standardised, you need to consider packaging production shall be customized to your business objectives. Sourcing packaging is then a whole project that you need to think out before carrying it out.
Chinese provider in the packaging industry aren’t used to work with western people as much as they are in other industries which directly sell to foreigners. As a matter of fact, it’s much harder to coordinate conception, production of packaging and delivery in China when you a abroad.
Amongst the several things to take into account when carrying out a packaging project:
Branding – Design of the packaging should reflect your brand the right way. Specialists of packaging design know how to create a whole experience around your brand. Even if package is sent from China.
Legal information – Whether you ship your packaged product to Europe or United States, there are a range of compulsory legal information that needs to be printed on the packaging. Most packaging providers located in China don’t know much about legal matters abroad.
Quality – Depending on your brand image and on the product specifications like size and weight, you need to choose the right quality of packaging. Indeed, items need to be well protected when shipped around the world. Choosing the right thickness of cardboard, shape of box is not an obvious thing.
Environment – There are more and more concerns about environment amid customers, which we believe is a good thing. Packaging shouldn’t be an extra burden to the environment footprint of your product, but rather a way to communicate on your efforts to support environment protection.
