Thermoforming: a manufacturing process in which a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed over a mold to a specific shape and trimmed to create a usable packaging product.

Clamshells can be one or two-piece thermoformed components ideal for high-visibility with good structural strength and security. This form of packaging usually consists of halves held together by a hinged area that allows the package to close neatly. Clamshells are generally made of plastic and function similarly to blister packaging.
Blister packaging is a type of specially formed plastic packaging that is used for the display and transport of small goods and products. Blister packaging is most easily identifiable by its pockets, often thermoformed to hold the products inside. Blisters are cost-effective solution to achieve high visibility and secure handling.
Trays are efficient transport mechanisms that allow for safe transit for delicate items. In most cases, trays are formed by a solid bottom piece designed to provide maximum security to the products or goods being transferred.
Inserts are structural components that add visibility and protection to the retail carton. Inserts not only provide protection and enhanced presentation for the products inside, but also allow for product organization and packaging convenience.
