Yes, a photo of the packaging is one of the most common specimens for physical goods. Just make sure the mark is prominently displayed on the packaging and from the specimen, it is clear what product you offer. This can be achieved in multiple ways:

  • The packaging can include a product description or an image of the product.
  • The product can be visible through the packaging.
  • Take a picture with the packaging open and show the product inside.

You can find examples of acceptable and unacceptable specimens for your niche in our Specimen guide.
