As we all practice social distancing to help curb the spread of coronavirus staying at home all day can get quite boring at times especially for our kids. Here are some ideas for things to do at home with your kids:

  1. Have an in-house picnic party: With kids staying at home and being used to playing with friends at school, they are sure going to miss them a lot! Turn your lounge or garden in to a picnic spot and plan a day out but indoors!
  2. Play hide and seek: With no physical activity around, kids are surely going to love this idea of playing hide and seek! Hide in their favorite spots in the house and give them clue to find you!
  3. Make your own family DIY board game: Cut an old cardboard and make it in to Ludo or scrabble. Print names of your family member and name each house!
  4. Interview each other: Start interviewing each other face-to-face by asking each other questions and taking notes. This will help them to polish their speaking skills.
  5. Start an online book club:Engage with your kids friends online and start discussions about your kid’s favorite books!
  6. Do a family hand print project: Wet your hands with some paints and draw on sheets! Make a family imprint and frame it in your lounge!
  7. Start gardening: Get seeds from your local store or left over food and plan it with your kids! They are sure going to love the progress of their home grown food every day!
  8. Write handwritten notes: Your kids are missing their friends for sure, instead of video calling them every day encourage them to send them a DIY handmade card and post it!
  9. Practice Yoga! Self-mediation is really important these days! While you do yoga each morning make sure the kids join you to practice mindfulness and appraise the good in life!
  10. Watch Disney together! As cliché as it might sound! Watch your kids favorite shows and movies with them! They are sure going to love it!

“When I work from home, I wake up, put on a pot of coffee, and start working immediately — much earlier normal working hours. I only start making breakfast once I’ve hit a wall or need a break. I’m a morning person and find I can get a ton done in the early morning hours, so this works really well for me.” – Lindsay Kolowich

Everything you do in your business from the colors of the logo; to the texture of your packaging and merchandising, to the people who work for you. They all resonate a story of your brand back to your audience. Off course, the product needs to be the best from inside, but it’s a good packaging is what makes a lasting impression in the minds of the consumers. It gives the customer a clear vision about the brand itself and distinguishes from the competitors in the market.

The brand packaging and stationery not only defines the product, but it’s one of the most important marketing tactics used by companies to develop their trust and credibility for clients and consumers in general. With the logo or colors of the brand being displayed on the packaging and stationery items, it sets you apart from others in the market. Each element of the packaging itself whether it be the shape, design or colors says something about the brand; therefore a captivating image in the minds of the consumers will also help them to pay more for the product itself, therefore resulting in more sales for the organization.

In a nutshell, here are a few tips for organizing your brand packaging and stationery:

Start with your brand and product

Perhaps this is the reason you want the design for packaging, and all your stationery needs fulfilled at its best. From the packaging aspect, it should fit your product well and also be able to attract the consumers visually. From the stationery design aspect, it should define what your brand stands for and be able to communicate your vision to the end consumer.

Know your customer

They say the fundamental principle in building effective brands is to understand consumer behavior and needs. When designing the packaging, it’s vital to create something that appeals to the customers. Doing product comparisons with competitors can also help understand what end-user likes or not.

Decide your budget

Allocating the right budget to your branding and stationery is critical. The right amount of money should be invested in keeping in mind the results of the final purchase. In a recent global survey, it was revealed that 72% of the consumers take into consideration the packaging of the brand before purchase. So when investing the budget for packaging and stationery design, less should be done for more and there is no better option than going for digital printing options. The digital printing gives an option to companies to stock less and therefore give more return on investment in less time.
