Popular 2017 Packaging Trends
As we begin to say goodbye to 2016 and welcome the new year, we also welcome new packaging and design trends. Even though 2016 is not quite over yet, retailers are looking forward to the new year by planning to update their packaging based off the anticipated trends for the upcoming seasons.
There are many trends ranging from interior design to runway that we can incorporate into packaging. Some new and continuing trends we’ll see in 2017 are the use of mixed metallics, fun fabrics and natural textures.
In recent months, we saw the use of mixed metallics on packaging. Metallic hot stamping and custom printing are two very popular treatments that will continue into 2017. These treatments will add extra flair to bags, boxes, accessories and garment bags. Pairing metallics with Earthy hues will create a chic yet organic look for your packaging. It is the perfect versatile trend whether your look is bohemian or classic and chic.
Regardless of brand identity, retailers across the board are also using fun fabrics such as cotton, muslin, jute, ppnw, pp woven as well as specialty papers to create elegant and stunning packaging for their products. On top of materials, natural looking textures can be added to gift boxes, bags and accessories. For that last little bit of flair, custom textures can also be added on the exterior or interior of your shopping bags and gift boxes.
