Getting retail ready
PACKAGING YOUR DREAMS
Are you developing your own natural skincare or fragrance brand?
Are you excited about the incredible formulations you have poured your energy, passion and savings into crafting? Are you nearly ready to do this thing?
Then all you need to do now is package it.
Should be simple, right?
It really should be, but this is sometimes the hardest part. If you have already started trying to work through this yourself, you will know. There are so many questions and so much to find out.
Where do you start with branding? How do you brief a designer for the best result? What board weight should you use? What finish? What about the legal stuff? Allergens, INCI lists, making claims, weight declaration…? What about batch codes and barcodes…? The list goes on.
Overwhelm. I totally get it!
All you want is some beautiful packaging for your new brand. You hadn’t expected all of this.
These are the same questions that come up for everyone going through this journey and I am here to guide you.
You don’t need to spend massive amounts of time and money on expensive mistakes. You don’t need to learn a whole new language. You don’t have to invest in massive volumes. You can be innovative and unique.
Let me show you how.
