Importance of Excellent Packaging for Electronics

Electronic items are fragile and most of the time, expensive too. Even light shocks can damage the integrity and functionality of their components if they are not packed and shipped properly. Consequently, there are high chances that such products will be damaged by the time they reach customers. Many customers spend large sums on these products, and it is not fair for them to receive damaged products only because they were not delivered responsibly. So, packaging products with standard materials and methods is crucial and has some of the following benefits:

Prevent Product Damage

A business knows its product best. They understand the level of protection a product needs as it sails through the shipping journey and finally makes its way to the customers. A large company revealed that shipping damages consume 0.5% of gross sales annually. For businesses with high revenue, the 0.5% could translate to thousands of dollars lost to product damages that can easily be mitigated.

Product damage is also an unnecessary nuisance for the customer, who could have been waiting for the product for a long while. Disgruntled customers are not always the best, as they can easily influence the behavior of other potential customers through customer reviews on different platforms. Packaging products properly protect the brand image from dissatisfied customers.

Using Bubble Mailers for Advertisement

Inflatable packaging material or inflatable foam packaging comes in different shapes, sizes, and thicknesses, catering to a wide range of different types of products. Bubble mailers’ tough exteriors prevent the packaging from tearing during the shipping process. On the other hand, bubble mailers can be used to advertise the product. Many packaging companies offer to customize the product package to reflect the brand’s image and vision. The touch of personalization added to the product packaging will make it even more exciting for the customer to unbox their newest gadget. It lets the business differentiate its product as it has a unique unboxing and product reveal process.

On the other hand, see-through bubble mailers also make it easier for the individuals handling the product to track which product is going in which bag easily. This eliminates the chances of the wrong electronic item being shipped off to the customer.

In-house Packaging

In-house packaging can be an opportunity for the business to take care of the packaging process themselves. Electronic items are susceptible to damage due to drops and a lack of cushioning. Often, a small electronic item is put in a very large box, which takes up more shipping space (and therefore more costs) and exposes the item to the dangers of sudden jolts during the shipping process. Unlike other items, electronic items tend to be delicate, and mishandling can lead to damage to their parts.

Sometimes these damaged parts become extremely costly for the user or the business owner to replace. In-house packaging eradicates the cost of outsourcing to inefficient warehouse packaging departments.
