PACKAGING FOR SCOTTS PATCH MAGIC: FLAT BOTTOMED BAG

Careful consideration was required for the actual design of the pack, seeing that it was a first for this type of product on the market.

Working in conjunction with Scott’s and the design company, Jam and Co., we developed the ideal size in the new packaging format called “Flat Bottom Pouch”.

The Patch Magic pouch is a very carefully constructed pouch made up of a metallized front and back with clear sided gussets so that the consumer can see the new product.

With the clear laminated sides, the brand and image was carried across to the gussets so when the larger packs are merchandised on pallets, the information is easy to read and the brand is instantly identifiable.

The benefits of this pouch is its ability to stand easily; it squares out like a box offering efficient packing with shelf presence being well utilised.

Clear Consumer Guidelines.

Step-by-Step instructions with images on the back of the pack carefully explain the benefits and procedure required to use this product.

Resealable Closure

As this pack is designed for multi-use, the resealable zipper feature is a very important aspect of the finished pack and is seen as an added value compared to other garden type products.

The fact that the product can be used, resealed and stored with out the risk of spillage shows the customer the benefit of purchasing the larger packs for bulk use.

QR Code

The use of the new QR code allows consumers to link straight to the Scott’s Australia website from their mobile phones where they can view video with step-by-step instructions on how to use this new product. Product information, Material Safety Data Sheets as well as other products in the range and gardening related information is also available on the website.

Micro Pin Holes

The use of micro pin holes in the top gussets allows for a better productive filling process allowing excess air to escape from the pack.
