Keeping it simple

Gearfix prototype with label.
A puritan solution.

When I got rid of the flashlight I no longer needed a sealed container and my packaging alternatives widened.

Cutting the cost
The cheapest package I could imagine apart from printing the bar code directly on the product was fastening a simple price tag to it. This also gives the customer an opportunity to examine and feel the product before purchasing it.

In Sweden they call it fästsnöre.

What do you call this crap?
You see them in stores everywhere, billions used every day. But I couldn’t find a single one on the internet simply by not knowing what they were called. Eventually I went to a clothing store where all their price tags were fastened with these nameless strings. The shop clerks didn’t know what they were called either. But I got the phone number of their supplier and everything was eventually sorted out.
