Thermoforming is a process that allows plastic to be molded to fit whatever it needs to contain. Custom trays are an especially popular application for the process. They offer many benefits–
In presentation packaging, it’s important for every thing to have it’s place..and for it not to shift in transit. It’s like a fisherman’s tackle box. If the lures and bait are all mixed it up, it causes chaos and confusion. Custom trays are the perfect way to contain products, samples, etc. in specific spots for consistency and expediency.
No matter what type of product or insert you want to include in your packaging, there’s a custom tray that will work. Trays can be used to keep marketing collateral in place in nearly any kind of packaging. Custom pads, magnetic cigar boxes, binders, the list is endless when it comes to what Sunrise Packaging can heat-seal.
–But chief among these benefits is the protection provided by custom thermoformed trays.
Custom Trays Protect Materials
From CDs to pamphlets to flash drives, it’s important that your materials arrive in pristine condition. The durable nature of custom trays ensures that whatever they encase will arrive without a dent or mark. They also defend against other potential contaminants, like liquid or water.
- Physical harm. It’s a wild world out there. Water and other liquids could ruin labels and packaging; your products could be jostled and chipped at any stage. Custom trays help lower the risk of these defects.
- Product fragility. Glass containers are beautiful and go a long way to convey luxury to customers. But it’s fragile. The same goes for some types of plastic containers, and a variety of products that can be easily crushed or their integrity otherwise compromised. Custom trays add a literal layer to safeguard against this kind of damage.
- Damage expenses. It’s true that there will always be some damage in transit, but it doesn’t have to happen frequently. It’s also necessary to plan for rough handling in package sorting. Thermoformed trays can help reduce the possibility of breakage. As well as the expenses incurred from damaged products.
