Plastic Clamshell Packaging

Thermoform clamshell designers and manufacturers since 1962.

Thermoformed plastic clamshells are rigid plastic containers that organize, display, and protect products. They are hinged, opening and closing like a book, and snap closed via drafted platforms.

Thermoformed Clamshell Benefits

Generate product sales with transparent clamshells that provide security and functionality.

  • Plastic clamshells for retail offer complete product visibility, making it easy for consumers to understand the product and its benefits.

  • Retail clamshells can include hang-holes for hook display, and formed feet allow the package to stand on a shelf.

  • Clamshells are pilferage-proof, yet can be designed for easy opening. 

  • Plastic bifolds have a second hinge, creating a completely flat bottom; this allows the plastic bifold to stand, affording greater stability than a footed clamshell package.

  • Plastic clamshells are lightweight and easy to fulfill, providing loading and shipping efficiencies.

  • Plastic clamshells can be made of recycled content. Learn about our efforts to make clamshells recyclable.

  • Dordan offers clamshells made from electrostatic-discharge materials (ESD materials) that reduce static electricity to protect sensitive electronic products and components.
