What Is Clamshell Packaging And What Options Do I Have?

Clamshell packaging is used to protect and provide visibility to your products. There are several stock shapes and sizes available, as well as custom clamshells that are formed to fit around your product snugly. Clamshells offer several display options, from hangable to stand-alone packages, along with insert cards with high-quality graphics to provide information about your product and your brand. There are classic "box-shaped" stock designs in several sizes, footed/platform clamshells that can both be hung on a peg or freestanding, or custom-molded, hinged packages.

Clamshell packaging is a great option for retail chains and big-box stores, and is used often to package hardware, tools, games, health and beauty cosmetics, electronics and household goods, sports, automotive parts, and more!

I have done business with Industrial Packaging for over 25 years. They are a very fair and honest company to work with. Their expertise on the film they sell, along with the technical service they provide, is superb. Their customer service staff is very very good. They confirm my orders along with advising me of any issues that might arise. They are also able to handle any emergency that might occur and in many cases, able to move up the delivery for me. I would very highly recommend them to anyone.

“When our auto bagger machine went out of adjustment three days prior to Thanksgiving, we were concerned we would be down through the entire holiday break and weekend. We were back on-line producing product by early the next day. They took the time to instruct our maintenance personnel and operators the technique of machine timing, and specific set-up techniques to achieve optimum production speed. Now that is service! ”

Pricing for clamshell packaging varies depending on what you need. Stock items are generally more readily available and often at better pricing.

For example: if you were to purchase 1,000 clamshells, it could cost you $400.00. However, if you were to invest in 10,000 of that same item, it could cost you only  $150.00 per 1,000.

If the manufacturer needs to produce the product (meaning you require a non-stock item), pricing is based on 1,000pcs. There is sometimes a minimum amount that you have to buy.

Let's say 3,000 is the min order. The price per thousand could be $400. So, for 3,000 it could cost you $1,200.00

The manufacturer determines the quantities for price breaks. The more you buy, the less expensive it will be. If you were to buy 10,000 pieces, the price could drop to $150.00 per 1,000. So, the total cost for this could be $10,500. 

These prices do not include freight costs. This should be minimal, but something to take into consideration.
