The packaging is very important when you are shipping items out to your customers, or to anyone else for that matter. There are many reasons why the packaging you choose to send items off in is so important, a few of them are described below.
Packaging is important to the protection of the contents
If you ship photographs in a large envelope, they will have bend marks. If you send a vase in a box that's much larger than it and without proper packing material, it is unlikely that the vase will reach its destination in one piece. However, if you send photographs in a thick, padded envelope or in a tube, they should arrive in great shape. If you ship a vase in an appropriately sized box with proper packing material, then it should also arrive in the same great condition it was in when it was packed. Packaging that is appropriate for the items being shipped and that allows for packing material to be used correctly helps to ensure the items reach their destination without damage.
Packaging helps present your business as a professional one
Imagine you paid good money to purchase a blouse online. However, then that blouse came it had been folded carelessly and shoved into a white plastic envelope that was much too small for it. When you pulled your new blouse out it was very wrinkled.
Now, imagine purchasing that same blouse from another company as well. However, when the blouse came from the second company it showed up in an appropriately-sized box with nice tissue paper wrapped around it. When you pulled it out, it fell open barely wrinkled. In the future, you would likely give your business to the second company due to their ability to send your items in a much more professional manner. This is why you want to make sure you always send out your shipments in packaging that makes your own business look more professional.
Packaging can decrease returns
When you do something to increase the chances of your items remaining protected when they are shipped, there is an increased chance that the people who receive the items will be very pleased with their purchase. Also, the chances will be a lot lower of anything breaking or being damaged during transport. This means shipping items in the right packaging can decrease the number of returns you get back and this helps you end up with more profits.
