These are particularly useful tools in competing on busy retail shelves. By allowing your customer this opportunity, choosing your product over your competitor's will be an easy choice for the consumer.

Usage / Application: Cut outs can be particularly useful when it is important for the consumer to experience the touch and feel of your product. This style of packaging can be just what your product needs to sell. Your competitor's product may be completely sealed, not only will your package stand out on the shelf, your package will allow the consumer to experience your product without the need to damage your package to check it out. 

Hangers and Closures

Hangers and closures for your clear packaging are as important to your overall packaging design as the packaging itself. Thought should be given to how the product will be displayed: will it sit on a shelf, or hang from a display rack. Adding a simple butterfly hanger may be all you need. 


The style of closure used in your clear folding carton or box is extremely important to the security of your product. Clearpak takes into consideration the size of the product, weight, ease of use, contents and security of the product when recommending closure styles for your retail packaging.
