Retail Product Packaging: Different Options To Consider

Every product needs a package, and custom thermoforming is an excellent option for retail product packaging. By using thermoplastics, you can create virtually any shape or size of package to protect and preserve any type of product.

At Indepak, we create custom retail product packaging for many different industries. Our clients include companies from the pharmaceutical and medical industries, the specialty foods industry, the electronics and high tech industries, the agricultural industry and many retail companies.

For our retail clients, we can create functional, attractive packaging for virtually any product. Our retail product packaging includes the creation of clamshell packaging and blister packaging as well as multi-fold and tray/lid combinations. Custom retail product packaging can be designed using many different types of thermoplastic, depending on your needs and budget.

A blister pack is one of the more common types of retail product packaging, and we design these for hundreds of different clients each year. Often, a blister pack will include a paperboard backing or perhaps a seal of aluminum foil or perhaps very thin plastic. Blister packs can be used to package millions of products, including medicines, pens and pencils, scissors, tools, toys, batteries, glue sticks and much more.

A clamshell is a type of blister pack that folds on to itself, and this is also a common type of retail product packaging as well as electronics product packaging. This can be created to fit the exact specifications and shape of your product. Generally, this type of retail product packaging will include a thin sheet of paper that labels the product and contains information or instructions regarding your product. With a blister pack, your logo and information often are printed on the paperboard.

At Indepak, our design team can create an attractive package that appeals to your customers, but we also are concerned with aspects such as security and sealing methods. In addition to design and production, we also can help with package fulfilment and inventory management. In this way, we provide a total solution for a client that takes them from the earliest stages of design all the way to shipping out the completed product.

If you need retail product packaging or perhaps packaging for a food product, medicine, agricultural product or virtually anything else, give us a call and let’s get started with the design product. Also, in addition to creating all types of thermoformed packaging, we also can create many custom thermoformed products.

Custom Thermoforming: Packaging, Products & More

When you think about custom thermoforming, you might be thinking just about packaging, but at Indepak, we can create almost any product your might need. Plastic thermoforming is amazingly versatile and can be used to make all sorts of durable, lightweight plastic products.

While we certainly produce our fair share of blister packs and clamshells, custom thermoforming can be used to make all sizes and shapes of plastic trays. These trays can hold everything from cookies and candies to electronics or medical supplies. The process of plastic thermoforming allows us to create custom molds that perfectly fit your product.

Plastic thermoforming also can be used to design a variety of products. For instance, water bottles and beverage containers can be created via custom thermoforming. Plastic plates, cups and utensils are other products we can create. Another product we often create is custom tubs and lids for various specialty food companies.

Millions of products every year are created through custom thermoforming. This includes toys, trash cans, mobile phone covers, tote bags, yoga mats and even furniture and some clothing. Thermoplastics are some of the world’s most versatile materials, and almost all thermoplastics are recyclable.

At Indepak, we can help fill your custom thermoforming needs. Whether you need packaging, thermoform trays or a custom product, we can help through the whole process. From design to production to fulfillment, Indepak is a full-service plastic thermoforming company.

We can help you decide which type of thermoplastic to use, as each type has specific properties. For instance, some thermoplastics are a better option for holding liquids, while other thermoplastics are more heat resistant. It all depends of your custom thermoforming needs. We even have many sustainable options, including bio-plastics and plastics with recycled content. In addition, we also are a low-waste operation. Our goal is to design a great product or package and create that product with as little waste as possible.
