A well-designed custom printed tape can be a great promotion tool. Thousands of people could see your packaging as it moves through the delivery network. Therefore, it’s a great place to promote your brand.
Make it unmissable
The packaging world is awash with simple white tapes that show little more than a logo. Why not make yours look different? Make the most of your available space by using eye-catching colours, readable fonts, reverse printing and even flood coating.
Furthermore, it’s a good idea to think about colour contrast. Darker colours on light backgrounds can really help an image pop, grabbing the attention of passers by.
With a few simple tweaks, you can turn forgettable packaging into something unmissable.
Designs we love
Think outside the box (pun intended)
Don’t stop at a logo; why not add a promotion, discount code or even a competition. By adding a unique element to your design, your printed tape could become more memorable and your brand more recognisable.
Furthermore, it can help to make it easy to contact you; add phone numbers, websites and social media. Additionally, you can even use hashtags to help your brand be tagged, seen and promoted.
- Consider adding promotions and discounts codes
- Get creative in your design
- Make it easy for someone to contact you – add numbers, websites and social media pages
