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.

At Allen Field, we are eager to assist you with all your packaging design needs and to provide you an attractive and cost-effective way to display the products you sell. To learn more about Allen Field, contact us here!

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!

Intelligent packaging design rewards consumers and retailers!

As the old saying goes: You never get a second chance to make a first impression. This is particularly true in the 21st century, when the immediacy of social media often ensures a first impression is a lasting one.

For those in the packaging design industry, making a positive first impression is a doubly challenging task. Not only must the packaging catch the eye of a shopper, but the product inside it must be good.

At Allen Field, we’ll work with you to design packaging that is as eye-catching and authentic as your product. We know that an impressive packaging design will enhance the credibility of the product—and that a trustworthy product can yield benefits for us down the line as well.

Intelligent packaging design helps everyone—contact us today so that we can begin to assist you with all your packaging design needs and to discuss with you the attractive and cost-effective ways to display the products you sell. To learn more about Allen Field, contact us here!

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!

Looking for a reliable packaging design solution? You won’t find anyone with more experience in the industry than Allen Field!

 

We started way back in 1945, when we were a customer-focused business that manufactured handy items such as plastic sock hangers, plastic clips, plastic closures, small garment accessory hangers and other retail hardware for the garment and hosiery industry. We soon expanded our product line to include custom-manufactured items such as rings and game pieces.

In 1992, we acquired PX Hardware and began offering items such as cabinet bumpers and shelf supports, metal and plastic cabinet hardware and other tools for the woodworking industry. More than two decades later, we remain one of the world’s busiest custom manufacturers of packaging design solutions!

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.

Allen Field is proud to help the environment!

Preserving the environment—and coming up with green-friendly solutions—is a priority for every packaging design company. The European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers recently released a study that revealed the corrugated packaging sector reduced its carbon footprint between 2009 and 2011 by 4.8 percent. That, in turn, followed a stretch from 2006 through 2008 in which the corrugated packaging sector cut its carbon footprint by almost 12 percent.

At Allen Field, we are proud to contribute to environmental preservation with our box connecting clips, which can both be easily attached to corrugated boxes and then allow these boxes to be used over and over again. This, of course, reduces the need for new boxes and reduces the wear and tear on the environment.

Each one of our dresser drawer products are durable and built with material intended to provide decades of use. Best of all, these products are affordably priced and will fit into any budget. With Allen Field, you’ll never have to worry about NOT having a good dresser drawer!

At Allen Field, we’ll let you try it before you buy it!

Samples just aren’t for the food court at your local BJ’s or Costco! At Allen Field, we are firm believers in educating clients about the products they are interested in buying. With that in mind, we offer samples upon request to those with whom we are discussing a custom manufacturing product.

Providing samples saves time and money for both Allen Field and our clients. It is far better, and far less expensive, to engage in a bit of trial and error involving a sample or two than to produce something in bulk that doesn’t meet the client’s specifications. Get in touch with us today so that we can begin constructing your sample!
