The packing number of a graph G is the maximum number of closed neighborhoods of vertices in G with pairwise empty intersections. Similarly, the open packing number of G is the maximum number of open neighborhoods in C with pairwise empty intersections. We consider the packing and open packing numbers on graph products. In particular we give a complete solution with respect to some properties of factors in the case of lexicographic and rooted products. For Cartesian, strong and direct products, we present several lower and upper bounds on these parameters.
