Packaging Design & ProductionTo protect your valuable product, we can propose durable, attractive packaging with the optimum cost and materials.
What Is Packaging Design?
In order to distribute a product, it must be shipped and stored. When shipping or storing the product, it is extremely important to use the proper packaging to protect the value and condition of the product.
Packaging design refers to the process of creating the most suitable packaging specifications according to the product characteristics, production trials, and production schedule. As a result, the product is not only safely protected, but waste in the shipping costs, storage costs, and other distribution costs can be eliminated.
Contact Crestec for Any of Your Packaging Needs
I want the product packaged safely and efficiently, but I also want attractive packaging
The person in charge of designing packaging is a specialist with a packaging professional certification. When designing the packaging, shock-absorbing characteristics, environmental safety, and cost reductions through downsizing are considered.
In addition, we can work together with the client to produce designs that increase the "excitement" for the product when the packaging is held, cartons boxes that have attractive exterior designs, and packaging that has a high POP (point of purchase) effect when displayed in a store.
I want to reduce distribution costs, starting with packaging materials
Of course, we can review the material costs and production costs, but it is also possible to lower the shipping costs, storage costs, and other general distribution costs by reducing the weight and size of the packaging. Packaging with sufficient durability and cushioning effect can also help prevent problems during distribution.
I want to protect environmental resources and clear green procurement standards
We can provide the SDS (safety data sheet) and the ICP analysis data for the packaging materials according to requests from clients. In addition, Crestec has acquired ISO14001 certification at many of our overseas production sites and we strive to protect the global environment. We can discuss proposals to help you achieve a balance between total costs and environmental considerations.
I want to shorten the lead time for developing packaging specifications
Because our dedicated design staff member has highly specialized knowledge in designing packaging, they can listen to your requests directly, making it possible to hold a technical meeting at the initial stage of receiving your request.
In addition, the materials can be procured from our branches in Japan and other countries. We can quickly supply a suitable sample using materials that comply with environmental regulations and are procured from the same source for mass production. We also have an organization for mass production overseas.
Packaging Design Process
① Planning & Proposals
Listen to the client's packaging requirements and confirm the schedule.
Propose the optimum packaging considering cost, quality, and environmental concerns and a design with excellent ease-of-packing and shock-absorbing characteristics.
② Design & Test Sample
Using a sample cutter, create a test sample. We can also use our global network to create test samples using materials from the same source for mass production.
③ Evaluation & Testing
While carrying out an internal design review, also perform a general evaluation of safety, costs, effects on the environment, and other factors.
Carry out packaging and freight tests that comply with various standards.
④ Client Approval
Once the client confirms the costs and approves the test results, a CAD drawing (DXF file) of the packaging is provided to the client. We can also provide the MSDS and ICP data.
⑤ Mass Production Test Sample
Carry out evaluation tests to confirm the quality of test samples equivalent to the packaging for mass production.
⑥ Start Mass Production
Corrugated cardboard cases, carton boxes, blister packs, molded pulp, polystyrene foam, and wooden pallets
Available Evaluation Tests
Drop test, vibration test, compressive strength test, and material evaluation (burst test and ring crush test)

Examples of Created Packaging
Carton Box and Packaging Materials for SLR Lens / Precision Equipment Manufacturer
The client requested a carton box design that would draw the user's eye and have a POP (point of purchase) effect when displayed in the store for sale. We advised the client during the selection of the materials and proposed a particularly attractive carton box that emphasized "white" and "touch." The packaging materials reflected our aim of combining simple function and beauty.
As a result, we were able to achieve both a cushioning effect that securely protects precision equipment and a beautiful design that does not dampen the feeling of elation when the user holds the product in their hands.
Carton Box, Packaging Materials, User Guide Printing and Binding, and Kitting of Indoor-Outdoor Insect Repellent Dispenser / Chemical Manufacturer
According to the client's request for one-stop services, Crestec created the packaging specifications as well as designed the carton box, printed and bound the manual, and carried out all production work not related to the product itself.
Not only were we able to provide a carton box and packaging materials in a short time with the perfect size for the product and included items without any waste, we also designed the outer packaging for the replacement cartridge and the advertising leaflet with an elegant, subdued image that was consistent across all of the items. This contributed to the strategic image of the product.
