Custom Designed Clamshells

I consider custom designed clear plastic clamshells provide an enormous advantage for retail packaging solutions. I think it speaks to people that your package has nothing to hide. Your product is there for the world to see and your customer can see the product and not feel like they have any expectation to be disappointed by misrepresentative contents.

Clamshells provide safety and visibility that are designed specifically to product are frequently custom made with inline thermoforming manufacturing. Plastic material is roll-fed in to the former and takes shape of the Teflon coated aluminum tool that is being applied. Clamshells often are very cost-effective and usually have easy to open functionality that provides a great custom packaging solution.

Advantages of Clamshell Packaging

Clamshell packaging is distinctive because of its hinged, one-piece design. The hinges allows them to open like a clamshell. Clamshell packaging frequently comes with a single hinge and usually includes a hanger tab so it can be hung on a store hook.

I love the advantages for both the consumer and the manufacturer. Let’s look at a few.

Highly Observable for the Consumer

This type of packaging is usually made using high transparency material. For the consumer, the product inside can be observed from many different angles

Highly Secure for the Manufacturer

Clamshell packaging can be made highly secure, allowing manufacturers to package highly valuable products in them while diminishing the possibility of theft or tampering. This increased security makes it perfect for retail.

Total Enclosure

Clamshell packaging provides total enclosure for the product inside without separate lids or backings. This ensures that the entire package is one piece.

We are a leader in manufacturing thermoformed clamshell packaging solutions to industries such as retail, medical, entertainment, media and cosmetic.

This is a turned edge product that carefully and strategically utilizes custom thermoformed blister packaging in order to create a unique and comprehensive packaging solution. An informative piece that covers the benefits and uses of crops from Minnesota Grain in Eagan, this packaging solution is not only a great marketing piece, but it provides the recipient with real time samples of each item in order to recognize and truly learn about what they have to offer. They say in order to make money you have to spend money, and in this case, Minnesota Grain has done that by making a solid investment in educating their clientele and potential buyers. The thermoformed plastic acts as a blister with the turned edge flat, making it possible to show a variety of grain samples. The placement of each blister is in line with the accompanying descriptive text. As both a turned edge manufacturer and custom thermoformer, we love projects like this that use our strengths!

Vinyl Album + Thermoformed Tray

Here are some of our most recent custom albums made here at Sunrise Packaging. A combination of custom vinyl exterior and internal thermoformed trays, these packaging solutions are extremely versatile when manufactured. With all of the steps, materials, and equipment in house, we are able to take a concept and make it a reality. First, a custom vinyl flat is made, and scored to fold over much like a binder or album.  A plastic thermoformed tray is then heat sealed to the vinyl exterior to create the internal organization of the packaging solution. These albums are great for branding internal information and media products that require a combination of printed literature and disc/flash drive documents. By creating a cohesive set package, you are able to keep all necessary information in one, protected place.

Blister Packaging

What is Custom Blister Packaging?

Thermoform blister packaging is a trusted retail ready packaging solution. Originally patented in 1947 for the purpose of storing aspirin tablets, the production of blister packaging has evolved somewhat over time. However, its duty at retail has grown invaluable.

Custom blister packaging begins with a grade of plastic heated and molded to fit a product on a sturding backing. This process creates a tailor-fit plastic cavity which secures the product in clear casing, preventing movement and damage. Fortunately, this protective bubble around the product proves as much a marketing strategy as a security measure.

 

How Does it Work?

The vacuum formed casing heat-sealed to the cardback deters tampering. It’s easily recognizable when blister packaging is disturbed. At the same time,the transparency of the blister pack allows the product to be on display, rather than just an image. Seeing the product is better than any high-resolution image. It means a potential buyer can be that much closer to the product without it being loose. Much of retail tampering is not theft-related, but caused by a frustrated consumer just wanting a better look at the product, to see if it works for their needs. Clear blister packaging provides that advantage.

Benefits of Blister Packs

Blister packaging is a staple of retail for lightweight, high-volume products. Easy to ship, easy to stock, easy to open. Available styles include face seal, trap mock, and slide, with a variety of backing materials such as SBS paperboard, E-flute corrugated cardboard, and foil for truly customized and attractive packaging. The addition of cardboard or paperboard gives blister packaging extra room for descriptions and logos, while providing high-quality color printing.

Blisters vs. Clamshells

Invalid Displayed Gallery

Popular packaging solutions such as clamshells and blisters are the product of thermoforming. You see them all around you in retail stores. Many think that clamshells and blisters are the same thing but they’re different. Lets investigate:Clamshells:

Most commonly used in retail products. Clamshells have hinges that allows them to open like a clamshell. A clamshell package with a single hinge usually includes a hanger tab so it can be hung on a store peg. Some clamshells have multiple hinges which gives them a flat base and allows them to be stood upright on a shelf. Retail products can be showcased very well in clamshell packaging. The clarity and visibility allows consumers to get a full view of the product. Clamshells can also be customized and thermoformed to take on any shape and hold a multitude of products.

Blisters:

Blister packaging is also commonly used in retail packaging specifically for small consumer goods, food, and pharmaceuticals. The main difference between a blister and a clamshell is that a blister doesn’t have a hinge. It it still made from thermoformed plastic. Blisters, in a lot of applications, are attached to a paperboard card where the blister mold holds the product in place. Blisters are also great for showcasing products because their clarity leads to great visibility.

Sports Electronics Packaging

We found this packaging example on the online gallery, Packaging of the World. Housing sports electronics products, these plastic thermoformed cases offer security and display qualities that are perfect for a retail environment. The challenge that the packaging designer was faced with was the need to refresh the brand to appeal to a younger audience. The designer used accent colors on the packaging in order to categorize products without confusing their targeted consumers. We love this creative use of plastic formed packaging- it does not stay constrained to a classic clamshell or blister pack. These are truly unique packaging solutions that will add value to the product and intrigue more consumers. sportline-potw-01
