The Innovation Process: 5 Stages to Successful Packaging and POS Design
At Garthwest, we offer a bespoke design and manufacturing process to ensure your cardboard packaging or POS displays stand out and keep your products safe. Our experienced team will take you through five stages during the innovation process, to bring your idea to life.
Stage #1: Design Brief
In the first stage, we will discover what your needs and requirements are for your design idea. Then, we will decide how to help your brand resonate with your target audience. If you don’t have a design idea, our designers will work on a concept based on the initial brief.
Stage #2: Concept Design
Once we have an ideal packaging or display concept for you, we will transform it into a design that will catch your customer’s and key stakeholders’ eyes. Our designers will create 3D renders of a variety of possible design options, giving you plenty of choices to choose from.
Our cutting-edge design technology will give you a real-world view of your design which will help you to decide on your final concept.
Stage #3: Prototyping
Once you have approved the design and artwork, we will produce a physical prototype that you can showcase to stakeholders and potential prospects. We will ensure that your sample is produced on time and give you time to carefully assess your product before moving on to production.
As a results-driven manufacturer, we will provide you with multiple samples, so you can share them with others and get insight into whether it reflects your brand’s story and purpose.
Stage #4: Manufacturing
As with all our clients, we will conduct thorough testing to ensure your packaging or display is easy to assemble, sturdy and accurately printed before manufacturing. Once our quality checks are done, we will prepare your packaging for delivery. We always stick to timelines, so production timeframes may vary, but it can often take up to 10 days.
Stage #5: Delivery
Now onto the final stage – delivery! We can ship your bespoke cardboard packaging or print display in three efficient ways. It can be flat packed with or without outer wraps, or fully assembled with larger outer wraps so it is ready to set up for your selected retailers.
We offer a broad range of experience working with industries across the UK and will ensure you are happy from start to finish. If you are interested in developing a packaging or display solution, contact Garthwest, and we will be happy to help you.
