Behind Valentine’s day, Easter is the second biggest holiday for shipping candy. Kids and adults love finding the egg shaped chocolate in plastic eggs around the front lawn on Sunday morning. It is important that your company packs and ships large quantities of pastel colored goodies in the most efficient way possible. Here are some tips to make sure the Easter Bunny is fully stocked with your favorite eggs and chocolates:
Prevent Damages: When shipping candy and chocolate, no one likes to see their sweet treats damaged or broken when they open their package. Chocolate easter eggs and molded bunnies are often hollow, so it is important to secure the contents of your package through proper protection like packing peanuts and bubble wrap. Of course, integrating “fragile contents” on the outside of the package can ensure safe and light-handed handling.
Use Sustainable Materials: According to research, easter eggs seem to be one the most over-packaged products you can buy, producing around 3,000 tons of waste in the United Kingdom alone. With companies moving towards more sustainable packaging efforts, companies who produce Easter treats are shifting towards biodegradable and 100% recyclable packaging.
Stick to Pastel Colors: When designing the packaging your easter goodies will be shipped in, it is important to appeal to the springtime sentiment people are feelings. Pastel colors like pink, yellow, light blues and purples will allow your packages to mimic the colors that naturally occur during the springtime. Adding small details like floral prints and ribbons goes the extra mile in delighting the recipients of these packages.
