Gather Project Data & Requirements
Initial Proposal & Project Plan
Custom Design & 3D Modeiling
Physical Packaging Prototype
During the Discovery phase, we collect and analyze information about your packaging project. This may include information such as product specifications (size, weight, materials, etc.), quantities, time frame, budget, special requirements, and much more. As part of this conversation, we will discuss various options available to zero in on the optimal customized packaging solution for you. This phase also offers you the opportunity to learn more about our company's capabilities and the solutions we offer.
In the Conception phase, we develop the initial proposal and project plan based on the previous data gathered. This step helps us ensure we have captured all of your project details accurately and provides an opportunity for any updates/modifications before moving into the Design phase.
We understand that every product is unique thus we work closely with our clients to design the perfect packaging solution. Utilizing the latest CAD software we create the drawings to match your specifications or can also import your existing drawings if you have a pre-existing package you would like us to replicate. Once the designs are approved we create a 3D conceptual drawing for review by your engineering team.
Once your design has been approved we will create a physical prototype to ensure it matches the CAD specifications and meets/exceeds your expectations for quality and performance. After the prototype has been completed, and approved, we move to the testing phase if required.
Once the final design is approved, and any required testing is completed, it is time for the actual production of your finished packaging. We have extensive manufacturing facilities including a 17,000 sq. ft. corrugated shop and 14,000 sq. ft. woodshop. Our manufacturing team members are true craftsmen when it comes to fabrication including cutting, slitting, die-cutting, printing to stitching, and assembly.
Creative Packaging is sensitive to the environment and is doing our part, therefore, all materials (corrugated, wood, foam, and inks) we use are recyclable to help protect our planet.
