Macpac offer a complete turnkey service from original pack design to final manufacture.

We design bespoke packaging to precisely fit your product and ensure that it looks at its best at the point of display adding real value. Eye catching design including any printed insert cards will make your product stand out from the crowd. Our in-house tooling facility keeps costs as low as possible whilst maintaining high quality and quick turnaround.
The bespoke service is available for heat sealed blister packs, slide blister packs, trapped blister packs, clamshell blister packs and display and transit trays.
I addition Macpac also supply bespoke packs for the Tricel clamshell design that can either free stand or hang from a euroslot; Boxed set trays – gift boxes with acetate windows and a product tray; die cut packaging – clear presentation boxes and shelf display trays – perfect for point of sale to hold multiple products in the minimum of space.
These packs are designed to provide an excellent fit for your product. They can be totally bespoke or semi-bespoke utilising the Macpac Eurocel concept. This is a clever way to reduce the tooling costs of a truly bespoke pack by utilising a broad range of standard plinth profiles that already exist. An add-on tool is then produced to fit your product. Insert cards can also be designed and printed to complete the job.
The Tricel clamshell is a variation on the theme of clamshell packs and is designed so that it can be hung from a euroslot or free-stand at the point of sale.
All clamshell packs offer good product security with the stud fix closure system and can be HF welded or Ultrasonically sealed to provide the ultimate in anti pilfer packaging.
