Advantage of Clamshell Packaging

Clamshell packaging is one of the most widely used types of plastic packaging to date. This type of packaging proves to be a lot more secure than other types of containers. You can shape it to any form and size that you want, plus it is definitely one of the strongest, most durable, and versatile of all packaging types. But with all the advantages of using it, it also has a simplistic factor to it which is the reason why a lot of companies choose to have their products stored and contained in this type of packaging.

There are several clamshell packaging types to choose from.

Tri Fold Clamshell

Formco provides companies and business owners to choose from a variety of plastic packaging designs to make sure that each product exudes certain uniqueness to it. One of the best types of clamshell packaging is the tri fold clamshell in which the container has a triangular base which also allows it to stand on its own.

This is great for products that need to be display standing up and is more common in toy packaging.

Bi Fold Clamshell

Other types of clamshell packaging includes the two piece clamshell which are like two bi fold clamshells stuck to one another with two container pieces at the front and back.
