Where can I find some help on designing packaging for retail sales of our product?


Graphic designers typically charge big bucks to create a packaging concept. Then there is the cost of packaging materials that can sometimes cost as much or more than the product. Does anyone have a resource that could help me do this myself?

If you don't mind the difference in time zones, you can try outsourcing at odesk. The odesk job market is like ebay where the sellers (service providers) and buyers (employers) rate each other. You can post what your project, specify as much details as possible, deadlines, how much your budget is, etc.

The service providers, upon seeing your job posting will respond to your ad with their credentials as well as a proposal as to how much it will cost you. Give it a try.
