Choosing the right custom label manufacturer to create your packaging and label design as well as to execute that design is essential for the success of your brand. If you have found such a great partner and everything looks good on paper, it is a good idea to put that label and packaging manufacturer to one more test by ordering a sample packet. Whether your products are packaged in bags, boxes, bottles, some other type of plastic container or into flexible pouches, ordering a sample will give you the insight you need to make sure that your partner is what you want, indeed. Here is what the process will reveal:
- Turnaround times – the time that passes between the moment you order your sample package and the time when you receive it will inform you about the turnaround times practiced by the packaging manufacturer. If you have previously agreed on shipping duration, ordering a sample packet will tell you whether your partner sticks to the agreed deadlines.
- The quality of the products you ordered – seeing your packaging design on a computer screen is one thing, holding your packaging material in your hand and checking the quality with your own eyes is another. Ordering a sample of the package you are going to use from your sample packet printing shop is a great way to see what your packaged product will look like on the shelf.
