How to Design Packaging for DTC with Last Crumb Cookies | Ep 50

Learn what it takes to design, buy, and launch packaging for a start-up. we discuss numbers, concepts, and next steps.

How do you design packaging for DTC brands? How do you know how many boxes to buy when you haven't sold anything? How do you time your packaging buys when you're working with projections? 

The founders of Last Crumb get into these details and many more. We learn how they developed the packaging that is winning awards and most importantly selling out their weekly cookie drops. At nearly $10 each cookie these cookies are flying off the shelf and growing this 10 week old start-up.

For online only brands packaging is critical, your packaging design has to sell the product after the purchase and validate the consumer's expectation by delivering a memorable unboxing. We dig into all of the details to bring you the lessons these founders have learned.
