How to Design Holiday Packaging

Creating an effective holiday-themed design is more than just adding Christmas trees, Santa Claus, or candy cane designs. Each element must be well-thought-out, coherent, and contributes to the overall brand message you wish to convey. It must fulfill its purpose, as well as stand out. While designing online in 48HourPrint is quick and easy, here are some tips to consider while creating your holiday packaging:

  • Choose the right colors – The holidays are supposed to be warm, festive, and joyful. Ensure that your design effectively evokes the emotions associated with the season. Whether you’re going for traditional green and red or a more elegant route of white and gold, your design should stand out—in the right way.
  • Design with your brand in mind – While seasonal events do require some design flexibility, it is important not to lose sight of your brand message. Your brand should still be front and center and the overall design should still reflect your brand identity and what it stands for.
  • Create brand recall – During the holidays, a lot of packages come and go and it’s easy to get lost in a sea of envelopes and parcels. Ensure that your design stands out. It could be a unique combination of packaging labels and pouches, a bold pop of red from a hang tag; a vibrant, striped holiday sticker, or even greeting cards with a metallic finish. Going off the beaten path guarantees that you’ll be remembered not just for the holidays, but also all year round.

Using Holiday Packaging to Win More Customers

Aside from being one of the busiest times of the year, the holiday season is also when competition is at its most fierce. All businesses are looking to create momentum and boost sales. Below, we’ve curated a short guide on how to best use holiday packaging to your advantage during this season.

  • Focus on function – While it may be tempting to pull out all the stops and add every conceivable holiday-themed art to your packaging, remember that utility is key. Less is, oftentimes, more. A vibrant holiday sticker or a personalized card in an envelope can drive impact effectively without all sorts of visual distractions.
  • Stay in touch – Whether you’re sending wrapped presents or a simple holiday card, customers love and appreciate the gesture. Greeting them and saying thank you for supporting your business goes a long way in keeping their business, as well as glowing recommendations via word of mouth.
  • Embrace social media – The internet is a level playing field for everyone. Even mom-and-pop businesses can greatly benefit from harnessing the power of social media. Add #hashtags, brand stories, and other interesting tidbits about your company that might pique interest on your packaging to boost brand engagement.
