Increase Profit

Researching different methods of packaging can increase the bottom line.

Things to think about . . .


Cost of materials.

After deciding which types of packaging you are going to use, you will need to calculate the cost per bar for each type of packaging. One might want to look at purchasing a color label printer to help with those short runs and types of soap when you are not sure of the marketability of a new product. You don't want to purchase 5,000 labels or boxes for a product that hasn't proven it's self in the market.


Amount of time and cost involved.

After deciding on your packaging method, you will need to determine how much time is involved in applying it to your product. Boxing your product might prove to be quicker, but the cost of the boxes still might make your end cost higher. You will need to experiment with the different methods to see what fits your product and client needs.


Marketing, who is your client base.

Determining your client base will help you decide which type of packaging to use. If your selling your products in Beverly Hills, you might want to look at well designed boxes as apposed to a paper sleeve. The boxes will cost you more, but will attract the higher end client. If you are selling to local craft shops, then shrink wrap and a nice color label will probably do fine and will still look attractive and cost you a little less per bar.
