Vitamin and Supplement Packaging Design Services

Custom Supplement Packaging Based on Your Branding and Messaging

Millions of people are turning to digital healthcare as a simple way to receive health and vitamin supplements. Like any e-commerce product, a package on the doorstep may be the only physical brand experience—a cohesive brand presentation with quality supplement packaging is essential in building trust with your customers.

Whether you need packaging for store shelves, e-commerce or both, we can design and produce custom supplement packaging to fulfill your customers’ needs. While e-commerce is second nature for most people, they may be hesitant to order potentially sensitive or perishable products online. Our goal is to elevate your messaging and mission through thoughtfully designed supplement box packaging. Professionally engineered packaging, quality materials, and clever branding—in other words, good packaging design—helps you establish a relationship with customers. When the packaging is as good as the products inside, customers know they can trust your brand to deliver.

Vitamin and supplement brands usually offer a variety of products, or an assortment of targeted formulations designed for individual needs. Each order can be vastly different from the next. That’s why forecasting every possible fulfillment situation is essential to our design process. We create the most efficient, cost-effective packages using sustainable materials. These designs need to be suitable for both one-time orders and ongoing subscriptions. Ultimately, we weigh all the factors to create a perfect balance between efficient fulfillment, true-to-brand messaging, eco-friendly materials, and cost savings.

Regulation-compliant Custom Vitamin Packaging

Vitamins and nutritional supplements require specific types of packaging to preserve freshness and quality. These increasingly popular products come in many different forms—liquid, powder, capsule, pill—and it’s essential to choose the best packaging for the product. Consider the following questions when building your supplement and vitamin packaging strategy.

Your customers likely have diverse needs and active lifestyles. They might take their supplements at home or on-the-go, post-workout or in the airport boarding area. We have access to a variety of containers to meet these needs, including protective glass bottles, plastic tubs, and tear-away single-use packets, to name a few options.

From the factory to your customers’ doorsteps, nutritional supplement packaging needs to protect your products from the elements. We work with you to determine the best food-safe liners, barriers, and materials to keep your products protected.

California leads the way in child-resistant packaging, and over the years we’ve become experts in the field. We even developed our own sustainable child-resistant mechanism for the cannabis industry called Zenlock. We also provide every type of resealable and tamper-proof container available. Our pharmaceutical packaging design also takes that into consideration.

Eco-friendly packaging helps the planet and your business, but in a regulated industry, finding the balance between sustainability and brand goals can be difficult. Fortunately, there are many ways to minimize your carbon footprint, from biodegradable supplement packaging and efficient structural engineering to consolidating fulfilment to reduce transit time and fuel costs.

The nutrition and supplement industry continues to grow at an impressive rate. With rapid growth comes imitators and bad actors. We have integrated packaging solutions to protect your brand, including digitally printed bar codes and track & trace technology.

Our Process for Designing Vitamin and Supplement Packaging

Understanding Your Goals

At the start of every project, we sit down to collaborate with your team. We analyze your quantities, the products’ destination, material requests, and branding. Above all, we’re looking to answer this question: What sets your brand apart from competitors? Currently, nutritional supplements and vitamins is one of the fastest growing industries; distinguishing yourself from the crowd is essential. How can we further elevate an already great product through structure, graphics, and messaging?

Building a Dynamic Packaging Strategy

Once we understand your goals, we get to work designing the structure and graphics. As a supplement packaging manufacturer, we utilize our industry knowledge across departments and time zones to formulate a dynamic packaging strategy. The unboxing experience is never ignored—it’s at the forefront of everything we do. As the strategy nears completion, our packaging prototyping team creates white box samples, which are then modified based on your feedback.

Produce and Deliver

Dielines complete, materials sourced, timeline set—our network of factories is ready to now produce and print. Our project managers integrate the fulfillment and logistics plan according to your schedule. From there, we adjust to inconsistencies and changes, always seeking to improve the strategy. Continued collaboration is essential to this process, especially during periods of growth or fluctuation.

Custom Supplement Packaging Case Study

Founded in 2015 in Upstate New York, Etain produces carefully formulated CBD and THC products for medical and recreational cannabis users. They offer an innovative and accessible product line—from flower and capsules to lotions and lozenges—out of their four dispensaries located throughout the state. With recreational legalization on the horizon, Etain reached out to Zenpack for new packaging to match their rebrand. The relationship bloomed into a multi-year partnership when Zenpack started sourcing secondary packaging and improving operations, helping Etain present cannabis as new tool in the wellness and nutritional supplements industry.

The company’s philosophy and slogan, Take a Moment, powered our packaging journey. We took our time to develop and prototype sound structural engineering to complement the new branding, and then consolidated operations to source additional parts and materials at affordable prices.

The resulting supplement packaging strategy combines premium materials and thoughtful details just in time for the wellness brand to support a rapidly growing community.
