I Heart Robotics: New Packaging.
Over at I Heart Engineering we have upgraded some of our product packaging. Here are some of the design concepts. These stickers are important, because this means we can make packaging for selling quantity one of prototype designs. This in line with our philosophy of lowering the cost of failure. Fail early, fail often, succeed occasionally.
A question from a customer:
I got my order in record time, thanks! I noticed the box had a small sticker that said Digikey, what’s a Digikey??? – Tim
Answer! A long time ago we decided we’d try to save all the incoming packaging and boxes and reuse it for our outgoing packaging, this takes us a bit of extra time but we think it’s worth it. This is why you might have a box with a weird sticker on it or packaging from other electronic’s suppliers like Mouser, Digikey, etc. It’s just one of the small things we try to do to keep our environmental impact as low as possible for the things that we can. When possible we buy recycled goods and when we make kits that come in boxes we use ULINE white boxes that can be written on for storage after you get your kits (many makers do).
