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!

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.

The majority of the thermoformed packaging solutions that you will see are made from a thin gauge plastic material. As an inline thermoforming manufacturing company, we believe that thin gauge plastic is one of your best bets when designing and producing custom plastic packaging products. Small sized blister packaging and clamshells from Sunrise can be made with a wide variety of different thing gauge plastics that offer different benefits suited to your needs. In retail and food industries, thin gauge plastic is the most common used material. This is because of its malleability and quick forming capabilities. Most often received in material rolls, thin gauge thermoplastic can simply be setup with the inline thermoformer and automated through the process. For fast moving items in the retail world, this is beneficial to both retailer and supplier!

Plastic Clamshell Solutions

Plastic clamshells can be seen in a wide variety of retail stores. From large scale department stores to small mechanical or electronic outfits, clamshell packaging is applicable to so many products that are sold today. The main reason for the popularity of clamshells is the protection they offer product while giving the consumer the best possible idea of what they are about to purchase. What many consumers may not consider, however, is how economical and environmentally conscious it is of these companies to opt for plastic clamshell packaging. A thermoformed item, plastic clamshells most often use a clear, sometimes recycled and always recyclable PVC grade plastic. A thin and clear material that allows for efficient inline thermoforming manufacturing. Producing large quantities of plastic thermoformed trays, blisters, or clamshells is a fast process for most manufacturers after tooling and setup. Consider plastic packaging solutions like clamshells for your next retail venture. Even with startups or smaller quantities, stock clamshell sizes can be a viable option. Sunrise Packaging has a selection of seven new clamshells to choose from. Even order online!

Plastic Trays Enhance Marketing Kits

Plastic packaging solutions come in many forms. Not all thermoformed plastic packaging needs to be a clear clamshell or custom blister pack. For example, shown here is a marketing set and retail box that we made for Besita Boutique, a high end swimwear retailer. The white plastic tray inserted in our customizable cigar-style Netbox™ matches the color scheme while providing a much needed cavity to hold a turned edge Flashpad™. Sometimes it is the small details that make a big difference in the display and presentation of a marketing kit. Custom plastic trays show forethought as well as the investment you made showing that each and every prospective client is equally important.

Custom Plastic Packaging Factors

thermoformedWhen making packaging decisions for retail products, there are a lot of factors that come into play, and many important things to consider. Custom plastic thermoformed packaging comes as no exception. In order to have an all around quality packaging solution, it needs to be protective and practical while simultaneously marketing your brand and product. Protection and practicality go hand in had for custom packaging solutions. In order for  a plastic blister pack or clamshell to properly serve its purpose, it needs to insure that the product is safe in shipping, that it is tamper proof in-store and can therefore be purchased and put to use! Simplicity is also a key component of quality packaging. Many times with plastic clamshells and blisters, shoppers find it difficult to actually access the product that they just bought! Create a design that offers protection but can also be easily opened in the household- there are a few tricks out there to open difficult plastic packaging, many of which come with a bit of risk. Finally, use packaging to your advantage by adding value to your in-store presence. You worked hard on making the packaging design, now make it work for you. Incorporate your marketing message and branding strategies when you design artwork, tooling, and more!

Differentiate with Custom Manufacturing

In order to attract consumers to your product or service, it is important to know what they look for and what draws them in. More than anything, consumers want packaging to be simple and convenient. The average shopper is always on the go, and they seek products that are ready to go with little to no preparation. Along with this convenience, packaging needs to be easy to open and reusable if at all possible. In order to provide all of these benefits while simultaneously extending your brand, custom manufacturing is the way to go. With a trusted, local manufacturer you have the ability to be as involved in the process as much as possible. As a reliable Minnesota manufacturer, we proudly serve local and national customers with unique, high quality packaging. When it comes to the manufacturing process, especially with thermoforming, every detail matters! Watch the video below to get an idea of how our inline thermoforming capabilities work!

Choosing Plastic Packaging

One of the most robust retail packages, a thermoformed clamshell is a full plastic shell that encases a product and is sealed at the edges. Along with trapped and full card blister packs, these plastic packaging solutions offer protection and display simultaneously. Choosing the right plastic package should be determined by product, placement, and targeted consumer. Learning about the consumer biases that are prevalent among retail shoppers is extremely important to selling your product. For example, many consumers prefer not to purchase products in plastic clamshells due to the difficulty that is associated with opening the item. However, these preferences are often specific to the situation. Some product categories with secure packaging like plastic clamshells are sometimes seen as high value products that need the extra protection, and therefore worth the retail price.
