The gifting period feels like it’s long behind us but with Valentine’s day coming in fast, Mother’s Day on our heels and online shopping more and more popular, bespoke foam to secure products has become more of a necessity for transit.
Many brands and companies are looking to create bespoke presentation cases to market their product to gain shelf appeal over competitors. Whilst brand positioning and packaging design plays a key role, consumers also look to the quality of packaging when gifting to family, friends and loved ones.
Quality doesn’t only include the design and strength of packaging, but the level of protection in securing the item that’s presented. Low-cost items are often overlooked when it comes to ensuring an item is well protected and stable within said packaging - especially with consumers using online shopping more than ever before.
More often than not, retail items in-store or those shipped can suffer the consequences of handling and general wear-and-tear. If the contents aren’t well secured, they can end up damaged leading to disappointed customers, returns and broken goods - and less profit!
With a surge in gifting loved ones since we can't see them as often as we'd like at present, it’s important that packaging and protective inserts are durable.
We design and supply high quality, low cost cross-linked closed cell foam at Zouch that’s perfect for packaging and inserts. When closed cell foam has been cross-linked, it’s stronger, denser and slightly heavier than open cell foam - making the foam much more durable.
Its impervious cells are resistant to air, water and liquid leaks preventing any mould and bacteria growth. We can add EVA or metallocene to our closed cell foam to make the foam softer and more elastic dependent on project requirements.
Our closed cell foam can be supplied in sheets and rolls and we can split, saw, rout, die cut, water-jet cut, butt-weld, laminate, adhere, thermoform or compression mould all and cut to size all of our foams to create even the most complex shapes and sizes.
We can also add an adhesive, pressure-sensitive backing to easily stick our foam to different packaging materials, such as plastics and cardboard. Foam can be flocked to give the appearance and feel of velvet to add that little extra touch of luxury to showcase products.
No matter the project or complexity, our expert team will work closely with you to understand your challenges and with unbiased advice on the best products to meet them. We work with businesses worldwide to deliver packaging and inserts for products from the beauty industry, automotive and technology industry, to ensure that items are secure and safe.
