Economical Custom Clamshell (Eco-Shell™)

Clear Clamshell packaging is an economical choice and now you can get the best of both worlds.  Don’t let your packaging project stall as you prepare to make a choice between a stock clamshell and a custom clamshell. The stock clamshell just won’t reveal the feature you need and the custom package is time-consuming and beyond your budget. You want something unique, but what do you do? You call VisiPak and learn about our Eco-Shell™ solution. Using existing tooling, we can modify the mold by inserting another tool, at low cost. Presto, you have exactly the package you need, at a cost well below custom tooling.

If low-cost tooling and design flexibility does not compel you to explore the Eco-Shell™ clamshell packaging options, consider how clamshell packaging displays the most precise details of your product all the while protecting it from the environment and theft on store shelves.
