Our team of experts discuss the specific kind of packaging you want and need. We may advise you to use different materials for your packaging, or a different kind of packaging design altogether, depending on your specific needs.
After we understand and have decided on the specific kind of packaging you need, Kanary begins the supplier search. Our team starts with a search of 30-50 suppliers (many of which are already in our packaging supplier network), which we narrow down based on quality, expertise, pricing, and lead times.
After we land on 3-5 highly-qualified suppliers, our team solicits samples (which we organize shipment for), and we work with you on any alterations or changes that you require.
As part of the vetting process, Kanary visits potential factories. We ensure that the factory is capable of production quality that matches your standards, has the capacity to meet your needs, and has the communication skills required for a successful order.
Once you choose a supplier and production begins, Kanary continues to oversee quality control of production. Our team is positioned to catch issues early, quickly respond to problems, and keep production on schedule.
After production is complete, Kanary takes the lead in organizing shipment for your packaging. This includes:
