The Retail Packaging Planner

Plan your retail packaging with this handy planner

Like most products that come from outside of the UK, volume packaging needs lots of advance planning, particularly around holiday periods like Christmas, Chinese New Year and European shut-downs when production schedules can become very busy.

When planning your packaging, especially if it’s brand new, you’ll need to allow plenty of time for development, production and shipping. Advance planning will give just a little more certainty all around, and can minimise costs!
