Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Package type, part of Package Design with Illustrator.
…When it comes to selecting a package type, there…are a lot of variables you need to consider.…So let's take a look at some of those variables.…First is the product form factor.…What kind of form does the product take?…Is it a gas, is it a liquid, is it a solid?…So here is some of those considerations.…For solids, there's really no special packaging requirements, and so that…leaves you a very wide variety of packaging types to choose from.…You also will have a wide variety of print methods to choose from.…
Liquids on the other hand are going to of course…require a water proof container to keep the product inside.…Now a lot of times these products will also be flexible so…that the consumer can squeeze the container and get the product out.…Typically you won't actually print on the container,…it does happen but most of the time you…are going to be designing the label or the…sleeve that wraps around the container holding the product.…Print methods for these types of containers are…going to include screen printing or some form of flexography.…
