Nothing is more stressful than a tight deadline. The good news is that you can manage your stress by knowing exactly what to do under a time crunch.

To help you manage the whirlwind when designing the packaging of a new product, here's are some of the best things you can do to finish on time.

  1. Take your deadline seriously. Many people tend to be lax about their deadlines, but that's not a good way to stay productive and it's definitely not a good way to retain clients. That said, be sure you're treating your deadlines like the priority they are.

  2. Keep a list of your projects and deadlines. It's all too easy to stress yourself out about upcoming deadlines or, in some cases, to completely forget they even exist. To keep yourself relaxed and on the ball, make a list of your projects and deadlines even if they're a month ahead. You need to see that it's approaching and deal with it accordingly.

  3. Create a cushion. When writing out the list of your projects and deadlines, be sure that you're also giving yourself a cushion for that deadline. It's always a good idea to plan for something to go wrong, even if it doesn't happen. The more prepared you are for a disaster, the less you need to stress when one happens.

  4. Create a start and end date for each step. Create a start and end date for each step of the project. This way, you'; know you'll meet your deadline on time.

  5. Use a mockup company that works as quickly as you do. Some mockup companies can take weeks to print out and deliver the mockup of your packaging design. That isn't the case with Virtual Packaging. Virtual Packaging has some of the fastest turn-around times in the industry (as fast as a few hours).
