Choosing the Perfect Cap or Closure For Your Product
4 Critical Reasons to Consider
The packaging and presentation of a product are often just as important as the contents of the product. The design of the bottle and cap or closure used for the product will determine not only the use of the product but its safety for consumers and their families. The wrong selection for your product’s cap can make your product difficult to use or unsafe and deter customers from making recurring purchases.
It is important go over your options and make certain considerations when finding the perfect cap or closure for your company’s product. When choosing a cap or closure for your product you must think not only about your actual product but also the container being used and the intended use for your customers. At Silver Spur, we provide a wide variety of caps and finishes for your needs.
1 – Your Bottle’s Intended Use
What is your product going to be used for and what is the consistency of your product? For liquid products consider the use of our Euro Round Dropper Caps with a pipette to avoid wastage and spills. A pipette is a small plastic or glass tube used to measure and transfer liquids. For thicker consistencies consider a screw-on cap. Also, consider whether the consumers purchasing your product will need to measure volume to gauge proper dosing and usage where a marked dropper cap will be an appropriate and necessary choice.
2 – Consider Your Customers
While it is impossible to take into account all of the possible types of consumers that will be using your product it is a good idea to consider your main market and most common consumer. For example, if your customers tend to be older it would be wise to avoid child-resistant caps and focus on caps with ribbed closures such as our Boston Round PPC Cap available in a variety of sizes to assist with grip and opening of your product.
3 – Associated Risks & Product Safety
Think about the hazards and risks associated with your product. If your product presents a high risk of harming children and has a high probability of being used in households of families it would be beneficial to research and implement child-resistant caps.
This is important for the safety of your customers and to limit possible liability towards your company in the case of misuse. It is also crucial to consider maintaining the integrity of your product and providing a cap for your product that is safe and practical.
4 – Overall Product Appeal
Consider the overall look and appeal of your product as a whole and take into account the bottle or jar being used. How can you make your product stand out? If you are going for a higher-end look for your product and appealing to the higher end consumers consider using a premium lid to elevate your product’s appearance.
The materials used in packaging are as important as the design elements. If your brand is environmentally friendly, use packaging that’s recyclable and/or made from recycled materials such as glass or plastic. No matter what, your product’s packaging and overall appeal will help you stand out from the competition.
