Limited Editions

WHAT IS IT?
Packaging, released in a finite amount, that moves away from a brand’s standard design or confinement features.

WHY USE IT?
Use limited editions to create a buzz, reach out to new consumer groups or simply connect with existing loyal consumers.

WHO BUYS IT MOST?
It is repeatedly shown across categories that the influence of limited-edition packaging on purchasing decision declines with age.
