What is a "Clamshell  " Package?

Clamshell Packaging is one of the more popular plastic packages we manufacture. The name Clamshell refers to a formed plastic package used to encapsulate and boldly display a retail product.

The word Clamshell indicates that the formed plastic package has one or more hinges. A single hinged clamshell usually includes a hanger tab that allows the finished product to hang on in-store pegs.  A multi hinged clamshell offers additional features that can include a flat base for free standing of the package and the enclosed product. Adding a base to the package allows the store to display the product on a pegboard, counter or shelf.
