Packaging Design

To protect your valuable product, we can propose durable, attractive packaging with the optimum cost and materials. 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.

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, carton 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 members have 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 a source in the same area as the 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 a source in the same area as the 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
