An example of such custom cardboard boxes, which you can order on ZEE Custom Boxes, complemented by a plastic window and a foam tray.
Features of hybrid packaging
Unlike standard packaging, hybrid packaging has several advantages.
Combination of materials
Combined packaging combines two or more types of materials (cardboard, plastic, paper, metal, and even fabric), which allows you to achieve an attractive appearance and optimal protection of the goods during delivery and storage.
The container performs several functions simultaneously:
- Protect contents from damage.
- Presentation of the product to the consumer.
- Increasing brand awareness.
Hybrid packaging provides ample opportunities for design and branding. Designers create unique and compelling visual images that attract the attention of buyers.
Some types of combination packaging are designed with environmental aspects in mind, which helps reduce the harmful impact on the environment.
