The world is going through a tough period due to the coronavirus. Not only industries, but every sector is suffering due to the devastating effects of lock-downs and strict need for social distancing. Various countries have somehow overcome this issue, but a number of areas are still under strict lock-downs. The death toll as well as new cases are continuously increasing. Various researched and members of WHO have said that the world might never be able to get rid of this virus completely and that we might need to live with the face masks now. During times like this, the sales of Mask Boxes has increased a lot.
The reason for using face masks is that coronavirus is highly contagious. It spreads from one person to the other through the droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. That is why, the patient needs to be put in quarantine so that the spread can be stopped. But only a person that is showing symptoms will be put in a hospital. If there is a person who does not show any visible symptoms, there is still a chance that he might be infected. Therefore, in order to stay protected against such people, use of face mask as well as hand gloves is very important. The face mask will help provide protection against breathing of any droplets in air that have been released due to sneezing or coughing by an infected patient. The gloves will provide protection against touching any effected surface.
How to make effective packaging?
Due to the increasing demand of face mask as the virus is spreading to the whole world, there are a number of companies that are producing masks as well as other PPE’s. In times like this, people need to forget about competition and try to play their part in helping others around them. This can be done with the help of packaging of face masks. Here are some of the ways in which you can make a box that not only fulfills the packaging needs, but also helps raise awareness.
Unique Color schemes for good presentation
The first thing to consider for the packaging is the color schemes that you can use on the boxes of your face mask. They need to be aye catching so that the people can see them from far off places. As they are a medical necessity, you can use colors like light green and blue. With the various methods that are available in market, you can use any colours that you want for the Printed Packaging.
Cost effective solution
The second thing that you need to consider is that as explained earlier, the economy all over the world has suffered a lot due to this pandemic. That is why, people’s budget is already under a lot of strain, due to which their spending power has also decreased. There are a number of materials that you can use in order to keep the price of your masks under control. By keeping it under control, you can ensure that everyone is using the masks. This also helps people to take your brand as one that is trying to play its part during these tough times, by helping the less fortunate, giving a positive brand image to you.
The main reason why a box is used is to provide safety and security to the contents that are inside it. As compared to other items, medical products need a lot more protection. They should not be vulnerable to outside effects like moisture, humidity, extreme temperature. Because if they are exposed to such items, there is a chance that they will not be able to do their job. Especially if we talk about a face mask. Because if it has been exposed to infected surface or air, instead of providing protection, it will be a source of contamination and exposure to the virus. That is why, you need to use such a material, which not only protects it from moisture and humidity, but also from outside air. Apart from just using a protective carrier, you can also put all the masks in a plastic bag as well, which will ensure complete protection.
Apart from just surgical masks, people are also using N95 masks as well. That is because they offer even better protection against the coronavirus as compared to the surgical masks. But a problem with them is that they cannot face a lot of pressure. That is if the box that you are using to carry them, gets bent out of shape due to external pressure, not only the box will lose its shape, but the masks will also lose their shape. If they do, then they won’t be able to provide full protection. That is why, the packaging should also be durable and able to withstand pressure while shipping.
Another way to make your packaging effective is to use materials that are Eco-friendly. A lot of pictures have surfaced on social media sites that show that even though air pollution has decreased due to less traffic, the water pollution has increased because people are not disposing off their masks as well as their boxes properly.
Therefore, by using all of the methods mentioned above, you can make an effective enclosure for face masks. Another item that is being used a lot more than before is hand sanitizer. You can also implement all the above mentioned methods to your Hand Sanitizer Boxes as well.
