As this year approaches the finish line, giving birth to “New Baby 2016”, take time to reflect on your past year’s business and/or personal experiences. What went well? What didn’t go so well? As you complete your Packaging 2015 Wrap Up, let us know how we can be part of your continuing growth.
First, take a moment to bask in the memories of your victories, and learn from them. For those things that maybe weren’t perfect, this isn’t the time to agonize over them. Instead, it’s a time for constructive assessment, learning, and setting the course for this next year.
Next, document the course you set. A calendar or digital reminder program usually works well. Include a time frame that allows for research, samples if necessary, and timely product delivery. Start with your target “needed-by” date and back up from there, for things such as…”wiggle room” for the unexpected, assembly time, transit time for goods and/or samples, decision time, communication time, and research time.
It’s Not Too Late . . .
New Year’s Eve promises to include celebrations involving wine and spirits! Make it more festive with colorful wine packaging. Selections become more limited as the year draws to a close. Now is the time to be sure you have enough packaging on hand. And remember…Valentine’s Day is not far behind. Red, Silver, Black, White and Gold colors transition between seasons exceptionally well.
