In the fast-paced world of product packaging, staying ahead of the competition requires constant innovation and efficiency. If you’re still using labels and plain pouches for your products, it’s time to consider a transformative solution.
In this article, we’ll explore the drawbacks of labeling and plain pouches, and demonstrate how printed pouches can save you time, enhance your packaging aesthetics, and elevate your brand image.
The Downsides of Labels and Plain Pouches:
For startup food companies, buying generic packaging and adding labels has been the default solution for adding branding and product information to packaging.
However, this comes with several drawbacks that can hinder your ability to grow your brand and compete with larger brands on an even playing field.
1. Time-Consuming Application
You’re the founder of your company. You have the strategic vision about where you want to take your company.
Maybe you want to grow into the largest brand in your category.
As the visionary and strategist, do you really want to spend your valuable time attaching labels to each pouch individually?
It can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. This translates into lost productivity, increased costs, and frankly, lost time focusing on your strategic goals.
2. Inconsistent Results
Hey, we get it. Buying bags in bulk and attaching labels is the “cost-effective” approach. But it may cost you more in an unprofessional image due to inconsistent branding.
Labels may not adhere properly or may peel off over time, leading to inconsistencies in your packaging presentation. This can negatively impact your brand’s professionalism and customer perception.
3. Limited Design Options
Labels often have size limitations, which restricts the amount of information or design elements you can include. This may result in a cluttered or less visually appealing packaging.
The Power of Custom Printed Pouches
ePac’s founders began with a mission:
“To provide locally-based consumer packaged goods companies the ability to compete with large brands with great packaging.”
We believe most growing food brands believe this in their core.
Well guess what? That’s what printed pouches enable you to do.
Time and Cost Savings
By opting for printed pouches, you eliminate the need for label application altogether. This saves you valuable time and reduces labor costs, allowing you to focus on growing your business and competing with the larger brands.
