Powerful packaging solutions

First impressions are everything. Well-designed packaging can mean the difference between a customer purchasing your product or reaching for a competitor’s.

Packaging & Labels

Great branding is about the whole story – inside and out. Our goal as designers is to help you cut through the noise and communicate the USP of your product in a way that makes your customers desire what’s inside.

Equally as important as standing out on the shelf,  good packaging should also reinforce your brand and reflect the values that your business stands for. At Design City we understand that your brand at point of sale is crucial to the decision-making process that’s why our packaging designs connect with your customers emotionally, leaving a lasting impression and most importantly keeping you well and truly front of mind.

All Shapes, Sizes and Styles!

The marketplace is crowded, and now more than ever, you have to think outside the box - pardon the pun - in order to stand out. We can help your product not just stand out, but shine, through a number of ways that include:

Perfect for testing, our realistic physical prototypes means you can check everything from label legibility, right through to whether the barcodes scan. And with our ‘client guarantee’, you’re able to hold - not just see - a prototype in your hot little hand prior to approval.

All Things Print

A great product wrapped in powerful and compelling packaging is a powerful team. Our designers work closely with you to carefully create unique packaging that will stand out from the competition, recommending everything from the shape, size, stock and embellishments.

Plus, we can source printers or work with your established connections to ensure the highest quality finish gets delivered on time and on budget.

Print Recommendations

We put our expertise and attention into all aspects of the packaging including the size, shape, colour, cost and safety attributes, to make sure your product is the hero. We’re experts in all aspects of the packaging process including:

  • Adhesives
  • Embellishment
  • Custom Die Cutting
  • Gluing… and more!

We’ll give you the best options to create the look and feel you’re after, all while staying within your budget.

Print Management

Design is only half any packaging project - the other half is print management. We take the hassle out by looking after the whole process, from concept to completion. We do the running around, we do the follow-ups, we ensure everything is running to plan, leaving you to focus on more important things.

We talk the print-house language and can speed up the process by providing print houses with print-ready artwork to correct print specifications.

We’ll even do on-site press checks to ensure the colour reproduction, finish and overall quality is up to standard.

Print Broking

Finding the right printer can be a difficult and time-consuming task, and if you don’t know the ins and outs of printing, it’s hard to know which one to go with.

We take the stress out of it by finding the right printer for you. Using our extensive network of trusted local and interstate printers, we’ll find you the best quality printer for a very reasonable price.
