Types of Packaging
No matter what kind of products you manufacture, packaging is most important. Packaging is the key to keeping your product protected from creation to when it hits the hands of consumers, and it conveys what your product and company is all about. Whether it is cosmetics or foodstuff, consumers base many purchasing decisions on the look of an item. Here are four kinds of thermoformed packaging, with its benefits.
Clamshells are an extremely popular packaging that is usually created from PVC material. This type of packaging is designed with a hinge on the package that opens and closes. There are two sides to the package: one that fits within the other.
Clamshells are used in industries from cosmetics to food.
This type of packaging includes being able to see the whole product due to translucence.
Tri-folds are perfect for those who are marketing a multi-piece product. They can work well for the medical industry, personal care, grooming and household goods manufacturers.
Tri-folds are made to stand up on shelves at 90 degrees.
This type of packaging is its versatility sitting on shelves and hanging on the walls. Stores can easily find a spot for products in tri-fold packaging.
Blister packs are commonly seen paired with items like batteries, over the counter medicines, cosmetics and more. Blister packaging consists of a plastic container for the product mounted on cardboard backing.
This type of packaging allows for high product visibility and inexpensive production. Additionally, they are versatile in terms of size and shape, and they are easy to stock in stores.
Plastic trays are the perfect packaging solution for medical and pharmaceuticals. They can also be very useful in the food industry. Trays are packaging that don’t contain hinges; rather, they have a top and an independent bottom.
This type of packaging is that they can be made out of nearly any material, and they are custom fitted to your product. Trays typically don’t require heat-sealing, and they can be used for a number of purposes.
Outsourcing can be a strategic option that allows you to reduce costs, reduce investment in capital expenditures for additional machinery, reduce in-house training for staff, and better utilize your resources.

Blister Packaging Benefits
Even though they can be quite hard to open at times, blister packages are incredibly useful. The pharmaceutical industry, for instance, would be nowhere without blister packaging to contain and keep sterile all sorts of pills.
Even today, when eco-friendly packaging is at the top of every brand’s list, plastic packaging still dominates the industry. It comes in all shapes and sizes and is used throughout all sorts of industries, from medical to retail, food and electronics. Blister packaging is especially popular for its ability to safely seal a product inside a container, while at the same time also revealing a large part of it to consumers.
For all their convenience blister packages are relatively cheap to produce, slightly lower than other plastic packaging techniques. During production many packs can be made at the same time that can each hold different items without having to alter too many variables.
