In the competitive world of e-commerce, branding and customer experience reign supreme. According to the E-commerce Packaging Market Size & Growth Report 2030, the global e-commerce packaging market size was valued at USD 57.9 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Personalized packaging isn’t just a luxury—it’s a crucial part of the product experience. But how can businesses, especially small to medium enterprises (SMEs), offer this personalized touch without compromising efficiency or cost-effectiveness? The answer lies in the innovative use of handheld inkjet printers.


The Edge of Personalized Packaging in E-Commerce

First impressions matter. When an item arrives at a customer's doorstep, the first thing they interact with is the packaging. Personalized packaging does more than protect the contents; it conveys a story, promotes brand recall, and elevates the unboxing experience. In an age where social media unboxing videos can go viral, this is an opportunity no e-commerce business should miss.


Customization at the Core of Packaging

Handheld inkjet printers like the ones Bentsai made are revolutionizing the way e-commerce businesses approach packaging. All Bentsai handheld printers support adding your own fonts or printing from pre-saved or loaded images, meaning you can print customized branding materials or personalized information such as names or addresses with a breeze.

With these compact, agile devices, businesses can print on-demand, customizing each package with logos, messages, contact details, QR codes, barcodes or even individual customer names on all kinds of packaging materials, such as carton box, foam box, cookie cans, etc., and be it even or uneven, flat or round. This flexibility enables businesses to provide a high level of personalization.


Bentsai Printers: Bridging Automation and Customization

While these printers excel in manual operations, offering businesses the chance to handcraft each message, they also come with the ability to adapt to more automated settings that meets the needs for larger scale printing and labeling.

Bentsai handheld printers can be mounted on a stainless steel bracket, strategically positioned above a conveyor belt. They are equipped with a photoelectric sensor that detects the presence of packaging material, triggering the printing process automatically. This seamless integration into existing packaging lines enables businesses to apply unique identifiers like QR codes, barcodes, logos, and personalized messages without manual intervention, significantly boosting efficiency and throughput while still keeping the personal touch that customers value.
