Over the past 50 years, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has introduced some of the world’s most important breakthrough technologies, including the VCR in 1970, compact disc in 1991, and driverless car technology in 2013. If you’re considering attending CES 2018 in Las Vegas this January, we have some great ideas to help you showcase your new product or invention in the best possible light.
1. Make your prototype look like a finished product with rub-on transfers.
When you’re announcing a new product or technology, a polished presentation is key. Adding a logo, artwork, numbers or lettering to consumer electronics or 3D printed prototypes gives your product a finished look that will impress investors or potential buyers. Virtual Packaging’s sister company, ColorVu, creates rub-on transfers that can be applied directly to circuit boards, electronics packaging and other glass, plastic, metal surfaces in minutes, for a surprisingly low cost. They can create transfers in almost any color, including fluorescents, metallic inks, and metallic foil. To learn more, visit ColorVu.com.
2. Increase the appeal with a beautiful product package.
Consumer electronics packaging is a competitive industry—but with a well-designed package, your product can still stand out. Virtual Packaging creates attractive, high quality electronics packaging comps and mock-ups that can act as powerful sales tools.
When potential customers can touch, feel and see your product in a high quality packaging prototype, it feels more real. Our electronic prototyping process makes it possible to create professional-looking packaging fast, even in very small quantities.
3. Try a test-run on new ideas to save time and money.
Research and development is a trial-and-error process — but it can be time-consuming and cost-prohibitive to begin full-scale production on a new product or package. R&D departments can test out new ideas quickly, easily and under budget with electronic prototyping. Both ColorVu and Virtual Packaging can be great resources for creating test runs. ColorVu makes it possible to add custom artwork to product prototypes. And when you need to test out ideas for consumer electronics packaging, Virtual Packaging can help save money by printing one, several, or even a couple hundred packaging prototypes.
4. Don’t wait to innovate.
Technology changes fast, so it’s important to act quickly on your newest and best ideas. Both ColorVu and Virtual Packaging offer quick turnaround times, with the ability to meet deadlines as short as 24 hours* from the time your order is placed. Contact us today to discuss a timeline to deliver your rub-on transfer or packaging prototypes before the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show.
