When it comes to packaging, there’s a lot of emphasis on the outside. Think of a birthday present. If two presents are placed in front of you–one with a sleek, crisp package, the other in a paper bag–which do you want to open first? While the outside of the packaging might be what attracts customers in the first place, it’s what’s inside that retains them. This is where thermoformed trays take center stage…or rather, they provide the center stage.
Thermoformed trays are essentially plastic trays, heated and molded into custom shapes and sizes to ensure that your products are held firmly in place. They create a veritable stage for your products. Trays can be placed inside nearly any kind of container, from the popular cigar box to a turned-edge binder. It’s a versatile solution that many industries include in their packaging designs.
Here are a few more reasons why this type of custom insert works well for so many different needs:

To go back to the birthday present example, the only thing more disappointing than a poorly-wrapped present is a broken one. Thermoformed trays are customized to your product, ensuring that it is secure within the larger package.
