Packaging for e-commerce –
Join with us to conquer online trading

From protecting goods and the environment, to transport and storage, right through to marketing and advertising – e-commerce depends heavily on packaging and its numerous features. What once served as simply a means of shipment and as protective casing, is now an important marketing tool.

Straightforward handling is a key requirement in online commerce – both during packing by dispatch staff and when the customer opens up the package. The packaging is the only physical contact between the consumer and the product or online retailer. Unboxing should therefore also be designed to be a positive experience. Sustainable packaging material such as cardboard and an attractive printed design help to inspire and engage e-commerce customers.

Read here how you can reduce your emissions and logistics costs by up to 15 percent - while maintaining the same packaging processes.

Trend 1: Unboxing

The unboxing experience is increasingly becoming a key competitive factor: More and more unboxing videos are going viral on social media because people have a desire to share positive experiences. For this reason, online retailers are putting a greater emphasis on making their packaging attractive - both inside and outside. If the casing is also intact, easy to open and has goodies waiting inside, a greeting card or thank you note, the unboxing surprise has been a perfect success.

Trend 2: Seasonal box editions

Spring colours for Easter, jungle patterns in summer or a star design in December – seasonal box designs bring joy to the recipient and increase their excitement for the next order. We offer you countless options to customise your packaging designs – to leave a lasting impression on your customers.

Trend 3: New book packaging

 Whether it's a thick coffee table book or a bulky item of clothing, with some clever folding technology, our new book packaging can be completely and securely sealed whether its contents are big and bulky or small and compact.

Trend 4: Personalised advertising

Use your e-commerce packaging as advertising space for your own advertisements or partner promotions. Initiate campaigns and competitions, display information about new products and send personalised advertisements to your customer. We will show you how – get in touch!
