Searching for the correct plastic for your product

the correct plastic for your product

Searching for the correct plastic for your product can be an absolute minefield when you are trying to source for the first time.  Should you look for a plastic container wholesaler or should you use plastic container manufacturers? For instance, searching for bulk plastic bottles for cosmetics is completely different for bulk plastic bottles for drinks or paint.  It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options within the product packaging industry.  And clearly, the packaging of your product is often what determines whether potential customers buy it or not.   You could have the best product in the world, but if the packaging is not attractive or functional for the market that you are aiming at, it will not be useful.  However, if you’re a bit like me, you would want your customer to not only love your product but to love the packaging in which it comes. You might already have a clear idea of how you want your packaging to look, or you may still be thrashing ideas around.  We can help you no matter where you are in the process.

1. Know What You Want & Need

You know your product better than anyone else and you will also know your market and what they want.. You know how you want the finished article to look like and also how you want it to appear on the shelves in the shop.  You know what size it should be, the colour of the label and the type of closure or cap.  You may need some help selecting the type of plastic required for the product that you are intending and we can help guide you with that.   If there be more than one size available for your products, check that we can offer you a range in the same style.

2. Select Your Options

Next, select the size and shape of the bottle or jar and the type and colour of plastic for the actual container and the accessories that you need to go with it.  Think of your branding, the colours that you use, the shape of any logo or labels that you are thinking of using.  Also, think of how many different shades of a similar product you might need.

3. Order Samples!

Once you’ve picked a design, size, shape, colour, the closure and the type of plastic, the next thing to do would be to order samples so that you can test your product out over time.  It may be that you require either fluorinated or UN Bottles depending on the product that you are selling.  If you see a container that you like and would like it to be fluorinated, it is possible that we can arrange this for you.
