Lidding Film: What is it and How Does it Work?

Fiber Punnet/Tray - With or Without Lidding Film

Fiber punnets are a sustainable, biodegradable and sturdy packaging solution. As the demand for eco-friendly packaging increases, fiber punnets will significantly reduce plastic waste and promote sustainability.

PCR and Compostable Options

PCR conserves resources, while compostable materials utilize organic waste. The choice between them will depend on product requirements.

Single Peel and Reseal Options

Single peel and reseal packaging enables consumers to open and close the package multiple times while preserving freshness and quality. This convenience and user-friendly feature make it an ideal choice for consumers.

High Definition Digital and Flexo Printing

Digital and flexographic (flexo) printing are two printing technologies that provide superior quality and versatility for various applications. The choice between these two printing methods depends on various factors, such as print volume, substrate material, printing speed, and desired print quality.

Laser Macro / Micro Perforations

Perforations entail using a highly focused laser beam to create holes in materials. Perforations can vary in size, depth, and pattern, depending on the product. Lasers offer unmatched precision, allowing for the creation of intricate patterns with minimal material waste.

Lidding Film/Punnet vs. Clamshell

Punnets use 90% less plastic, which makes them significantly lighter, reducing shipping costs and waste to landfills. Additionally, the punnet's transparent design allows customers to see the contents, making it easier to make informed purchasing decisions. 

PET Clamshells — Blank or Labels Applied

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) clamshells are widely used in various packaging applications. These transparent, sturdy containers provide an excellent solution for displaying and protecting products. PET clamshells can be printed directly or made blank with labels applied.
