Where to Buy USB Clamshell Packaging
So you have this great idea to create your very own personalized USB drives, or perhaps you already have them on hand but in order to make sure they are retail ready, you are going to need retail ready packaging. So what comes to mind when you see a USB in a local store? Chances are you thought of a clamshell and for good reason. Clamshells have become the industry standard for retail USB packaging.
But why buy USB clamshell packaging over any other type of USB packaging? Wouldn’t a box or a metal tin be just as good for stocking a store? Well first having USB packaging is always better than not having any packaging whatsoever, but in order to really create a retail ready package, you are going to want to go with the clamshell for several reasons.
First clamshells are the standard and are what customers have come to expect. Customers cruise up and down the aisles looking at USB drives. They are accustomed to seeing all the USB drives hanging in plastic packaging on a metal holder. If you were to choose a tin or a box, then retailers would be unable to hang your drives and forced to put them at the bottom of the rack near customers feet where not many people tend to look.
Next Clamshells are see-through and allow for customized artwork shine through. Your artwork and content going a long way at helping attract the customers attention as well as convince them to buy your USB drive over the one sitting next to yours. Any other non-clear USB packaging can be used but then you risk printing area and USB drive exposure.
Lastly clamshells are inexpensive and very lightweight. Clamshells are made out of a tough, durable, clear plastic designed to securely hold the USB drive and its printed insert. The clear plastic is so lightweight that if you need to ship it, you will find your shipping costs actually decrease!
