When I say, “clamshell,” what comes to mind? Do you think of an oyster? 

That’s exactly what clamshell packaging is – a hinged container that completely surrounds the “pearl” of a product inside. 

Why is Clamshell Packaging So Popular?

Clamshell packaging is popular in the marketplace because it offers several benefits for brands: 

  • It’s a Branding Boost: A transparent plastic clamshell allows your product to be clearly visible to consumers. And a printed insert card provides ample billboard space to market your product. Branding boost!
  • It’s Versatile: With most clamshell packaging, if you can imagine it, Rohrer can create it. It can be just about any size and shape. They can even be designed to meet retailer needs – maybe you need “feet” on the bottom of your clamshell for stability on the shelves or hang holes for j-hook displays. At Rohrer, you can customize your clamshell without compromise.
  • It’s Secure: Using a clamshell package provides protection for the product, retailers, and consumers. A custom, thermoformed piece holds the product securely in place to deter tampering and theft. The clamshell also reduces the chance of product damage during transport.

What Types of Clamshell Packaging Are Available? 

The beauty of clamshell packaging is its versatility – it can be just about any size and shape you can imagine. A well-designed clamshell hugs your product to provide consumers with a full 360-degree view. Clamshells can include feet to stand up on retail shelves and/or hang holes for display flexibility.
