Packaging Design CostsCompare Quotes From Local Packaging Designers

Packaging design matters, as the look and feel of it will have a direct impact on how often your product is noticed and bought.  

Very often when we order products online, we are charged an additional prices for postage and packaging.  This is because packaging is an additional cost that very often is not at the surface and is passed on to the consumer.

Whether you are buying chicken thighs from Morrisons, or buying a tube of toothpaste, the packaging design costs are all part of the selling price on the label.

Sometimes investing in your packaging is wise as often it is the packaging that sells the product.  

We all remember the episodes of The Apprentice that were based on a packaging task.  Packaging design costs are affected by a number of factors.


The type of material that you use will have an effect on costs.  If you are going with a plastic (which is common) this will be quite cheap.  

Products that have expensive materials such as glass or metal will have a higher packaging design cost.

However you do need to consider if you are going to use recycled packaging, we have some ideas to consider.  There are government imposed plastic tax which will have an impact.

Big companies are always looking at options to use cheaper materials to lower the overall packaging design costs.

Design Of Packaging

The type of design you select is going to have an effect on packaging design costs.  The more complex the design, the more design work involved, the more it will cost.  

Toy packaging is a good example, since toy companies very often rely on the design of the toy packaging to sell the actual toy.

If the design is quite basic and like other products, it will be cheaper.  

Do you want your product to stand out though?  The design surely is going to be the thing to do this, the tipping point.

Food packaging design is often very basic, as the products will sell itself.

Consider a pack of chicken thighs, often a clear container with a very basic label.  No thought has gone into the design of the packaging or the design on the packaging.  The overall packaging design costs will be very low as the chicken thighs sell themselves.

Marketing Agency

The marketing agency you select will also have an effect on the overall price.  

All design and marketing agencies are independent companies, and set their own fees.  It is wise to shop around and compare quotes, as packaging design costs will vary considerably from agency to agency.

Packaging design costs do vary for each and every product as mentioned.

Sometimes packaging is relied on to sell a product, as previous episodes of The Apprentice have shown.

Choosing the right marketing agency is important if you want to do this, for your packaging to be attractive and aid in selling your product by standing out.
