Our Innovative Redesign on Hinge Hangers

Our Innovative Redesign on Hinge Hangers

Redesign on Hinge Hangers

One of the most frustrating issues with a cardboard header card was the continuous wear and tear placed on it. Between retail hinge and hook systems, along with customers rummaging through displays, cardboard hinge hangers often tear. The last place any manufacturer wants to find their product is lying on the ground just below the display case and lost in the shuffle.

Luckily, the designers at Allen Field Co. found an innovative way to trouble shoot this issue with designing plastic hinge hangers. Plastic hinge hangers are the most secure way to keep your items where they belong in a retail store, proudly displayed on a retailer’s display rack.

A plastic header card will help increase your sales and keep your inventory moving, as it will ensure that your items are not overlooked by consumers. Think about it: a consumer will most likely be looking at eye level for the products and goods needed; grab and go is the usual way for many consumers to shop. If your product is lying on the bottom shelf due to a faulty cardboard header card, that means loss of sales for your company.

We cannot stress enough the importance of sturdy packaging for your products. We know that if your product cannot be seen mounted on a display case, then it most likely will not sell. This is why Allen Field Co. designs and manufactures plastic hinge hangers that work on all packaging sizes, have plenty of space for product printing and provide superior holding power that will surely keep your product where it belongs – in plain sight! To put an end to your cardboard hinge hanger issues, browse our complete line of plastic hinge hangers, and make the switch today!

How to price & select packaging

When it comes to packaging design, the first question on the minds of every manufacturer is “How much will it cost?” And the second one is “How do I know which packaging is right for me?”

With these questions in mind, Allen Field has come up with a guide that evaluates the factors involved in the cost and selection of packaging design.

1.) Size: Generally speaking, it is less expensive to design package for smaller products. There’s less of everything required with a product that is small in size! So the larger your product, the bigger the packaging design budget.

2.) Quantity. Are you looking for packaging for a prototype item that you are bringing to a partner or a buyer? Or are you already at the stage where you are ready to introduce your product to the public at large? Smaller prototype packaging often costs more than a mass quantity of 1,000 or more that is headed straight to the shelves. Understand that packaging design needs to be a part of your budget from the beginning.

Once you have figured out the size of your product and its quantity—i.e. will you just be producing a prototype or are you looking to mass produce something for the shelves?—you can decide the kind of material you’ll need in your packaging.

There are many variables that factor into the decision, including the type of product you’ve manufactured. For example, paper board packaging is usually associated with lightweight everyday items such as cereal and vitamins. Stand up pouches can be used for most foods of the human and animal variety and do a tremendous job of keeping the food fresh. And corrugate packaging is used to house heavier items.

Packaging can do more than enhance a product

Everyone agrees you can’t have packaging without a product. But does that underestimate the value of packaging? EVERYTHING needs packaging—including the most routine essential items in life such as toothpaste and soap, which we use everyday without ever considering how it is packaged.

Allen Field’s goal is to work with clients of all sizes to determine whether or not the packaging needs to enhance the product or if it should be a vital component to the product. Going through this process will save time and money on the back end while also helping both the client to figure out how the amount of influence the packaging will have on the merchandising of the product.

Packaging design can increase the shelf life of a product

Many packaging design philosophies center around moving a product off the shelf as fast as possible. While sales are the focal point of any manufacturer, there’s also value to be had in how good something looks when it is actually ON the shelf and the comfort that seeing it in stock can provide shoppers.

With that in mind, Allen Field works in concert with manufacturers to design packaging that shoppers will remember long after they have bought and consumed the product. As good as it is to make an immediate sale, packaging designers and manufacturers alike know the secret to success is repeat business. There’s no better way to do that than with unforgettable packaging design!

At Allen Field, we believe in “KISS!”

Who doesn’t like a kiss? Or, better yet, the philosophy behind KISS? Granted, “Keep It Simple, Stupid” is a bit abrupt for us, but the 1960s acronym remains as viable today as it was four decades ago—especially in the packaging design industry!

Indeed, keeping it simple has never been a better idea. Shoppers are busier than ever, which means they have less time to patrol the aisles of a store. A simple and direct design has a better chance of making an immediate impact.

In addition, “KISS” can also save money in the design process while increasing profit margins. A simpler design won’t cost as much as a more complicated one, which in turn will mean companies won’t need to sell as much product in order to get in the black.

Keeping it simple is a daily mantra here at Allen Field! We are eager to discuss with you your packaging design needs and provide you an attractive and cost-effective way to display the products you sell. To learn more about Allen Field, contact us here!

Tamper evident clips improve sales!

For all the money stores spend on advertising and all the effort they expend coming up with impressive and attractive displays, the truth is few things can encourage (or discourage) a potential buyer more than the condition of the package that houses an item.

If the package looks brand new, the shopper will be more likely to purchase it. And if the package looks beaten up—or tampered with—then it’ll almost certainly be put back by the shopper, never to be considered again.

Make sure your products are tamper-free with tamper-evident clips from Allen Field! Our tamper-evident box connecting clips and tamper-evident bag tag clips will steer customers away from trying to open a package while also allowing retailers to promptly remove product that has been compromised.
