It&rsquos clear that marketing communication has moved from advertising to the shelf. Most of the time, your packaging statement is going to determine whether or not your product stays on the shelf or ends up in the shopping cart. With an average of only three seconds to catch the consumer&rsquos attention, breaking through the communication clutter continues to be a packaging and a marketing challenge. One of the answers is by creating shelf contrast via shape and color. Not only does your package need to differentiate itself, but it also needs to offer the consumer the most desirable functionality attributes&mdashand this is where metal excels. Further, technologies have evolved in recent years which have enabled shaped can production efficiencies and quality&mdashin both aluminum and steel&mdashto compare favorably with traditional metal. Both premiumniche and highvolume shaped cans continue to enter the global marketplace monthly. In many cases, these launches are achieving sales increases through product differentiation and enhanced functionality. Shape communicates instantly&mdashthere is no reading required. Shape creates memorable and recognizable branding. It also offers upscale, sophisticated cues. Innovative, shapely designs which support brand positioning, coupled with a complimentary color pallet help contemporize metal packaging and the products they contain.
