How to design product packaging

The top packaging trends

Here are 9 insider tips to help you create outstanding packaging design.

Learn the ins-and-outs of product packaging design with this ultime guide.

Discover the stunning packaging trends that will be dominating the industry this year.

Your burning box design FAQs, answered.

Everything you need to move to production. Your box design will be delivered in the correct formats based on your stated needs. Typically this means an editable Adobe Illustrator file, Adobe Photoshop file, PDF file or EPS file.

Since not everyone has the correct design programs to open these files (your printer will), you will also get web preview files in PNG or JPEG file formats.

Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.
In a design contest, designers from all over the world submit concepts unique to your brief. You choose finalists, give feedback to hone the designs and ultimately award your favorite box design as the winner. If ideation and seeing a variety of different design styles is important to you, we’d recommend a design contest.

On the other hand, if you have a clear idea of the style and direction you’d like to take with your packaging, or if you have a more complex design project (e.g. you need an entire line of packages designed), it’s best to start a project with a freelance designer.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of packages and boxes created by our design community. 

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. You’ll need to upload your logo and provide us with any set dimensions. Think about what information you want to go on your box and make sure you have that ready. This can include packaging type, dimensions, bottle or box sizes, designs you like, brand details, product specifics, SKUs, product photos, printing requirements and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design for you!
Anything, really! We’ve already done thousands of unique product packaging designs for boxes, bags, packets, tubes, bottles or canisters. 

Not sure what you want need? Choose “Other” in the design brief and mention to designers that you’re open to suggestions. Our professional designers can handle all of your product packaging design needs.
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo or product photos) that need to be included on your box, please submit them to designers with your brief.

Unless you request otherwise, your designer may also use stock images (purchased from a third party) in your design. If a designer uses stock art in a design, they’ll tell you which images they are and use watermarked versions of them in their entries. Once you choose the winning design, you’ll need to purchase the stock art and provide it to the winning designer so they can complete the design.
Your custom box design contest includes one winning box design in one size. 

If you need designs for more than one SKU, box size, flavor, or style, you have a couple of options: you can run a second contest, or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
A dieline template is a flattened outline of your box with all of the cutlines and folds required for printing. Designers may ask you to supply a dieline template at the end of the contest so they can product the final files to suit your chosen printer or manufacturer.
Your printer or manufacturer will often supply you with a dieline template. If you don’t have one already, you can always launch your design contest now and supply a dieline template to the winning design before they produce the final files.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your box design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of your winning box design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great box design at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.

Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum levels offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.

When selecting your product packaging contest level, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your box design contest. This will make your contest unsearchable on the web and prohibit designers from using their entries elsewhere.

This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all Box Design Contests, except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
