Wholesale Packaging: Is It Time To Expand Your Brand’s Packaging Solutions?

by | Jul 26, 2021 | custom packaging tips, e-commerce insights

For subscription boxes and ecommerce brands, it’s been a time for serious growth and it doesn’t look like things are slowing down any time soon. 

Thanks to convenience and predictability, consumers have increasingly looked to subscriptions to replenish or maintain their stock of must-have items. In the ecommerce world, eye-catching packaging and branding has played an important role in the shopping and unboxing process for customers as well.

Sales and fulfillment are a big part of growing your business – but how do you keep up when orders continue to roll in?   

Whether your brand is experiencing a surge in orders or you just want to get a handle on the process to accommodate steady growth over time, Packlane Plus offers a variety of customized packaging solutions designed to help you keep up.

When is it time to expand?

With a number of big retailers offering expedited shipping, your customers have grown accustomed to receiving orders within a few days.

But what happens when the fulfillments team and shipping can’t keep up?

It often causes consumers to go elsewhere the next time they shop online or sometimes they’ll cancel the order altogether. Consider this: 53 percent of online shoppers say that delivery speed is an essential factor when it comes to shopping with a particular brand.

Processing orders can be time consuming – especially if you don’t have the necessary materials to use for your custom packaging. 

Since the unboxing experience is such an important one for both the brand and customer, it’s important to stay on top of growing orders and expand custom packaging needs when the time comes.

What does that look like? Here are a few signs it’s time to expand packaging solutions and begin purchasing in bulk to save money and gain efficiency:

  • Positive feedback and demand is growing for your brand
  • Customers are consistently ordering and creating repeat business
  • Frequently placing packaging orders to keep up with customer demand
  • Shoppers are asking for more products/bundles
  • Find yourself facing the decision to acquire storage space vs. continuing to order as needed

Once you’re ready to take the leap into large volumes and even more customized packaging solutions, it’s important to look for a partner that can meet (and exceed) your needs for growth.

How to get started

When your order volume is growing and the status quo is no longer affordable or efficient, having a strategy in place is key. With that in mind, the next step is creating the systems and processes needed to accommodate growing demand.

Don’t try to navigate growth on your own. Why?

It costs your business in more ways than one. Instead of focusing on the growth of your business, you’ll find yourself investing way too much time in managing the logistics, production, design, and more for your own packaging. There’s a potential any new growth will instead hinder expansion and end up wasting revenue, time, and resources. Why do all of that when you can count on a seasoned team to help you? 

The investment you put into the brand’s expansion now will help increase sales and revenue later on.
