Unless you happen to know an awful lot about the packaging industry, most people will have no idea what clamshell packaging actually is. However, most shoppers who have ever purchased an item off a store shelf has probably handled and opened a clamshell packaged item at one time or other.
Let’s look at how using clam packaging can benefit you and your business and why it makes sense to consider this method of packaging to deliver your goods safely into the hands of your consumers.
Firstly, clam packaging is a 2 piece set that is split into two part and welded to form a tight bond or seal around your product.
There are many obvious advantages to clam packaging, including:
• The packaging is effective, customisable and durable
• It protects against poor handling and transportation
• It make it easy to stack your products onto shelves or in displays
• Aids in product visibility and presentation
• It’s strong, durable and versatile
• Even though they are difficult to open sometimes, clam packaging aids in helping to reduce pilferage.
• The packaging comes in all shapes and sizes
Increased durability from manufacture to shelf
Without the correct protective packaging for your product, you can put your goods at risk of damage during its logistical movement from your manufacturing plant to its arrival on the retail shelves or during transportation from the store to your customer’s home.
Clam packaging for electronic products
Although most end customers don’t think too deeply about product packaging, a lot of thought and design effort goes into what can seem like such a basic and necessary resource.
Electronic products carry a lot of sensitive or delicate elements and components that need protecting from damage during the shipping process. Also, the electronics manufacturer must think about packaging their products in a secure enough way so that shoplifters cannot easily remove the items from their packaging to make it easier for them to steal.
With electronic packaging, one of the most common designs seen is that of clamshell packaging. The reason why this packaging is so popular for electronic goods is the simplicity of the clamshell design. For example, it is easy to package a number of small items together in one clamshell package, so you could package a personal music player with a set of ear-buds and a charging lead.
The clear clam packaging also enables the electronic device to be extremely visible to the customer rather than hidden away in a cardboard box encased in polystyrene. Having high visibility on the retail shelves can help to boost sales too, so this is why clam packaging has always been a very popular choice for electronics manufacturers.
