Interact OnShelf Strategy Consultant Adam Spriggs is extremely well versed at customer behavior and has studied the role that custom labels and packaging play in the competitive retail arena.

Standing out on the shelves of high-volume retailers amongst a sea of 30,000-plus products requires boldly different approaches than what most brands are taking. Break the rules, break boundaries, and break new ground. You’ll never know your true sales potential if your package doesn’t effectively work to nab the shopper’s attention. 

Packaging’s number-one responsibility is to get noticed. All brands know this, yet most of what we see in stores is brands blending in, instead of standing out.


In your worthy mission of truly differentiating yourself from competition, it is best to leverage existing technologies that turn the ordinary into exceptional.
