Consider these characteristics of luxury packaging and the crucial role of specialty printing:
Brand identity. Consistency and clarity count for a lot in the luxury packaging experience. The brand doesn't need to jump off the box, it simply needs to be clearly associated with the product. This means the brand's identity on the package needs to be consistent from run to run. Often, luxury packaging is produced in smaller runs as the products are exclusive by design. An experienced printer like Carlson Print Group can ensure identical color match, special effects and calibration on each run.
But an understated tone or palette must never be muddy or bland. Crisp images, tone on tone, fonts and specialty printing effects can all be showcased in a simplified, monochrome or duotone color scheme. In fact, special effects such as embossing, debossing and metallic accents can elevate a design with an understated color palette without making it busy.
Differentiate with luxury packaging. Luxurious print and packaging aren't just for perfumes, cosmetics and jewelry. It's a way to differentiate a product line within a brand or a brand within a vertical or industry. Luxury print and packaging elements can be used to advertise quality or justify a higher price point in almost any industry.
Specialty printing is only truly special if it's innovative and embraces a little bit of risk for a huge reward: being seen by the right customers and valued by the right purchasers. Combined with upscale packaging and a quality product, luxury packaging is worth more than the sum of its parts.
