After pursuing a customer for a number of years, we finally landed an order. At first, the customer was taking minimum quantities which required the use of bags Sun Coast stocks in inventory. As their usage continued to grow, Sun Coast knew the time was right to assist in customizing their packaging. We worked with our customer to learn the intricacies of their business so that we could provide them with the best solution which would be custom tailored to their needs. With this data, our experienced staff designed a bag that would attract additional sales for our customer and in doing so, offered a packaging solution that showed a cost saving of over $12,000.00 per year.
In 2009, we helped a start-up company design packaging for their new product line of 26 different bird seed blends. Being a new company, their concerns were initial cost, order quantities, and cost of plates for printing. Our packaging solution was to differentiate each blend with a color which allowed minimal plate changes on small quantities saving the customer additional printing and plate upcharges while keeping their inventory cost at a minimum. Our experienced design team gave a solution that the customer loved and continues to use today. Partnering with this customer and understanding their needs and goal, they have grown their business by 40%.
