We’re a Retail Graphics company competing against industry giants. We’re also a curious company in a curious business. We find most retail packaging is just there on the shelf. It’s like the weather, kid’s noise and electronic gadgets with built-in obsolescence.
Being an independent manufacturer has taught us to compete in a variety of ways. In the process we have learned the basic difference between the large integrated manufacturers (the Number 1’s) and the world of the independents (the Number 2’s).
The Number 1 attitude is, ‘Don’t do the wrong thing; customers will adjust to the safe one-size-fits-all approach. Don’t make mistakes and you’ll be OK.’
As a Number 2 we’ve learned, ‘Do the right thing. Look for new ways to understand our customer’s and their customer’s business.’ Our customers appreciate the fact it’s not what we do, but more importantly why we do it. Because to a brand marketer, their packaging is the most important real estate they own. For at the shelf, a shopper’s attention is worth more than a 30 second commercial.
This is what separates the second tier from the first. And it works. The Proactive customer receives projects with a combination of vivid colors and sharp graphics. Making our customer’s brand look confident, feel comfortable and stand apart from competition.
Packaging that creates a flashpoint in the shopper’s mind, running blood through their veins. And at the same time, adding the human charm of warmth and emotion. Making the shopper an ally rather than a target. Just like a musical artist’s ability to turn audiences into accomplices.
In serving customers, we strive to be a contributing versus a custodial supplier. One that is: thorough and thoughtful in approach. Anyone in packaging knows two heads are better than one. And without a strong customer – supplier relationship, things can get lopsided quickly.
For the ultimate objective of retail packaging is making the cash register ring. Letting great products sell themselves – creating icons versus cons. This is what makes our work unique and exciting.
Proactive Packaging & Display did not invent No 2ism. Any company is free to use it. Think it over and thrive. And yes, of course we would like to assist you on an upcoming project.
