  1. Choose the material

    Is your product best suited for plastic, glass, or metal?

  2. Select the shape

    Will your customers prefer a round, square, oval or oblong package?

  3. Determine the optimal size

    How many ounces or milliliters do your customers want to purchase at a time?

  4. Pick the color

    Do you want your product to be visible through the package?

  5. Decide on the best method for dispensing your product

    Do you want to pour, spray, or pump?

  6. Select the appropriate closure

    Does your product need to be child resistant or have a tamper-evident feature?

  7. Choose the closure liner

    Does your product need a paper or foam liner? An adhesive or heat seal?

  8. Determine the packaging method

    Do you want your bottles bulk-packed or packed in re-shipper cartons?

  9. Specify any safe-shipping features

    Does your product require a “UN” rated container?

  10. Consider decorating options
