Clam packs provide another way of displaying goods for retail. Although suited for smaller components, clam packs can be used for slightly larger components or more products per packaging unit than blisters. Suitable products include stationery and writing instruments, cosmetics, batteries, small home improvement, and spare parts. Although, this method can be more costly than a blister, it is more environment friendly as both parts of the packaging can be separated.
The method of clam packaging uses a clear plastic pack that folds over an insert. The insert can be card or even 100gsm paper printed on both sides if desired. The clear plastic gives visibility to the product and to the insert, which allows you to promote the product. A bar code is usually printed on the insert for Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS). If required, a euro slot can be cut into the top of the plastic pack for hanging on display.
Gemini Packing Services are able to supply the completed product from design to delivery. We are able to provide clam packs to your specification including sourcing materials and all tooling required for each new project.
Sometimes the requirement is for low volume repetitive or high volume one-off jobs where the cost of machine tooling makes automation prohibitive. Using experienced packing staff, we are able to offer a hand-packing service. We would be pleased to discuss any such requirement with you to arrive at the most economical solution.
"Now that Gemini Packing Services have completed our order I'd like to formally congratulate you on the quality and timeliness of the repacking and relabeling work you did for us.
From the point we made initial contact with you, to the time of the last delivery, working with Gemini was a pleasurable experience. Your assistance with the design of our new packaging and your advice on options, relative costs and lead-times was very useful. Furthermore you were open with us during our initial audits and during our in process inspections and you communicated well with all the parts of our business involved in the fulfilment of our order. Crucially you completed the work in the agreed timescale.
The service received from Gemini Packing Services fully justified the decision to go with you and ensured we had good product back in stock and available to our customers in line with commitments we had given them."
