5 Tips To Prepare Product Packaging For Valentine's Day
To help brands increase their reach this Valentine's Day, Lightning Labels is sharing ways manufacturers can use labels to effectively market their products. Here are five tips to creating a successful Valentine's Day packaging design:
1. Don't Limit Marketing Endeavors To Couples In addition to the large number of people searching for romantic gifts this month, brands should keep in mind the significant number of consumers purchasing presents for mothers, daughters, grandparents, friends and other loved ones. Don't forget these niche groups when designing product packaging.
2. Try A New Color Consider spicing up product containers and boxes this season with romantic red, pink and purple hues. Even if a product is not the first thing one thinks of when brainstorming Valentine's Day gift ideas, revamping labels and integrating colors associated with the holiday will place the item in consumers' realm of consideration.
3. Have Fun With Font And Text Consider adding a little flair to the product by changing the font in the product description, recommended use and other written information. Including a new tagline or adding phrases about Valentine's Day is another great way to show the brand embraces the holiday spirit. Write copy that is brief, intriguing and explains why the product helps consumers demonstrate their love for others.
4. Use Limited-Edition Packaging Events that occur only once a year like holidays are a great time to release limited-edition packaging. Many brands have seen successful sales outcomes by marketing their products this way. Lightning Labels works with manufacturers to find the perfect look for both long-term and temporary promotional label designs.
5. Use Stickers And Labels As Gift Wrap Manufacturers can embellish packaging in a way that requires no gift wrapping on the part of the consumer. Lightning Labels can help marketers create aesthetically pleasing stickers and labels that consumers won't want to cover up.
