Benefits of Custom Foam Packaging

Custom foam packaging has various benefits, other than simply protecting the packaged items. These benefits include:

Reduced transport costs – For many businesses, the cost of transporting goods is a huge part of the budget, and can have a considerable impact on the overall price of the goods.

As well as being a lightweight solution, custom foam packaging, when precision-formed according to the size and shape of the items being transported, can help to significantly reduce pallet size, therefore allowing for bigger loads per delivery.

Fewer returns – Items damaged in transit, can hit finances hard, especially transport costs. With a custom foam packaging solution however, designed around individual products, transported items will be better protected from vibration or other external impacts, therefore creating far fewer returns.

Unboxing benefits – With a carefully thought-out custom foam packaging solution, including foam trays, foam inserts and foam printing which includes logos and messages, more excitement is generated when unboxing, which goes a long way in improving customer retention.

Better productivity – When custom-made, foam packaging can be designed to make the packing process simpler and faster with the help of interlocking closures etc., therefore increasing productivity.

Increased sustainability – As any modern business owner knows, sustainability is vital, and is often a requirement by law. With a variety of recyclable foam packaging materials available, businesses are able to tailor their custom foam packaging solution according their sustainability goals, expectations and legal obligations.

How Important is Custom Foam Packaging?

Products of all shapes and sizes need to be stored and transported, and often these products don’t have the protection required, resulting in damage and ultimately, costly returns.

Whilst some products may not need excessive protection, other products, particularly those in the motor industry, the food industry, or the pharmaceutical industry, require specific packaging solutions, tailored precisely to the size, shape and sensitivity of the product.

Polyformes Bespoke Packaging Solutions

With a bespoke foam packaging solution from Polyformes, we have the skill and state-of-the-art processes to design and manufacture your foam packaging to your exact specifications. This will include:

  • Selecting the right foam – Many of the foam materials we use to manufacture your bespoke foam packaging have various properties more suited to specific tasks. For example, Plastazote will often be used to create intricate packaging solutions for electrical items or pharmaceutical products, due to the ease in which it can be cut and formed, whereas ARPLANK may be used for automotive products due to its exceptional cushioning qualities or its chemical resistance properties.
  • Forming your custom foam packaging – At Polyformes we utilise much of the latest technology in foam, such as CNC routing and machining, moulding and forming, waterjet cutting, splitting and skiving and many more process that help to create foam mouldings that not only protect against vibration and external impact, but also helps to regulate temperature and protect from chemical spillages.
  • Personalising – Custom foam packaging isn’t just about protecting the product, it also has a role in the aesthetics of your product, particularly important at the unboxing stage. That’s why, at Polyformes, we employ various hi-tech personalisation processes, including printing, debossing and laser engraving. Each of these processes is designed to create instant recognition and excitement during the unboxing process, by incorporating brand colours, logos and relevant instructions etc.
