Versatile Clamshell Packaging

Our clamshells are perfect for small consumer and industrial products that require a high level of security and product visibility. Clamshell packaging gives your product visibility from the front and the back of the package. Made from thermoformed transparent plastic, clamshells are essentially hinged boxes that can be made reclosable or permanently sealed. Clamshell packaging can display your product in many ways, including hanging and standing upright. A printed insert displays product information and graphics.

Benefits of Clamshell Packaging

Clamshell packaging offers well-known benefits that enhance your product's position in a retail environment while protecting your product tampering and theft.

Improved Sell-Through
Products displayed in a clamshell package sell 4x better compared to the same product in other packaging styles. Through increased product visibility and a printed insert card, clamshell packaging allows you to use your packaging to differentiate your product from competitor products.

Increased Protection
Clamshell packaging provides added protection for the product, retailer, and end-user. A custom thermoformed part holds the product in place, protecting the product during shipping. On the shelf, the radio frequency (RF) seal will reduce theft, helping to improve margins. The consumer will know that your product is secure and not damaged. And potentially hazardous products, such as a knife, can be safely contained.

Adaptable to Retailer's Demands
Some retailers prefer to have products stand on-shelf, while others prefer your product to hang on a peg. With a custom clamshell package, one package can satisfy both requirements and still look great.
