Five steps to great design
with flexible film
How to execute a flexible package design that allows for attractive aesthetics, protects the product and improves bottom-line results.
Flexible packaging is widening its reach as a preferred option as marketers fine-tune the specific results they are trying to achieve through packaging, and package development teams gain a better understand of what different resins can or can’t do. Creative teams with clear branding objectives and who do their homework on the options available in film can harness flexible packaging’s strengths through design to achieve their goals more effectively.

A well-executed flexible package design not only allows for attractive aesthetic finishing touches, it also can help protect the product and improve total bottom-line results. Well- thought-out flexible packages also can reduce the use of materials and energy, and require less space on trucks and in the pantry. Savvy brand owners are embracing these all- encompassing benefits of flexible packaging as they craft product messages that make eco-friendliness a cornerstone of the brand strategy. But to be successful, any effort involving flexible packaging requires a working knowledge of materials, film resins, application techniques, the capabilities and limitations related to film shrinkage, and printing, among other considerations.
