Vintage branding is a great way to differentiate a product from the herd of modern looking and over-the-top packaging found on the shelf. It has a quaint and minimalist appeal that many customers gravitate towards. There are too many branding techniques that focus on trying to be in your face -- sometimes it's good to gently tell customers of your presence.

There is also the fact that this type of branding creates a familiarity with the older generations. For most people, nostalgia is a pleasant thing and capitalizing on this premise can be very advantageous. In addition, younger generations will recognize vintage branding from television and movies set in the past and will get really excited about seeing it in stores or in ads.
