Plastic clamshells, blisters, and insert trays have been the staple of retail packaging for decades. This is because the cost, performance, and merchandising value of thermoformed packaging yields bottom line results. Clemson University concluded that plastic clamshells increase sales when compared with the same products packaged in paperboard cartons, in a retail-simulated eyetracking study.

  • Plastic clamshells / bifolds are a lightweight, versatile (hang, attach, stand), and pilferage-proof medium for protecting and selling consumer product goods at retail.

  • Plastic insert trays are designed to protect and showcase consumer product goods at retail. Slip inside a paperboard or plastic carton or container for a popular retail packaging solution.

  • Trapped blister packaging, where a thermoformed plastic blister is sandwiched between two sheets of paperboard and sealed via heat or pressure, is a pilferage-proof packaging format preferred by some retailers.

  • Plastic blisters are an affordable and easy way to display and protect small/lightweight consumer products at retail.
