Packaging is the process of enclosing a product for protection, transportation, storage and sale. Packaging is used for millions of products worldwide from food and apparel to electronics and furniture. Creating packaging that stands out requires creativity, knowledge and experience with different materials such as plastics, cardboards, and foam. Additionally, 3D scanning and 3D printing are valuable technologies that have allowed designers to create complex designs while saving time and cost. These technologies also make it possible to optimize existing packaging for increased profits and reduced waste.
