How to Choose the Right Packaging Material

Choosing the right packaging material will help you streamline your fulfillment processes and ensure a positive customer experience for package recipients.

When selecting packaging materials for your business, you should consider several important factors, including the following.


Finding quality materials at the right price can be a bit of a challenge. Fortunately, you can navigate this process by finding a packaging supply partner that offers samples and upfront, transparent pricing. The right supplier will be willing to offer you a detailed quote and give you the opportunity to test their products.


While it’s up to you to maintain adequate inventories of packaging materials, your supplier must also do their part.

With that said, find out their average turnaround time so you can plan accordingly. Once you know the lead times on orders, you can build a packaging material inventory-management strategy that promotes business continuity. 


The best way to assess packaging material quality is to order samples.

Manufacturers that are confident in their products make it easy for you to try them out. Order a few samples, compare the quality of prospective partners, and choose the vendor that’s the best match for your business.


Now more than ever, your business must be conscious of the environmental impacts of its various processes. One way to do that is to order sustainable packaging materials, such as paper products, instead of plastic packing materials that consume valuable resources and add to the already significant issue of plastic pollution.
