October Newsletter - Your Partner in Product DevelopmentMonday, October 5, 2015
Here at ClearBags we thrive on new product development. Even though we lead the industry in the large number of stock products we carry, we are still constantly developing new products, modifying existing products, or consulting with our customer on the development of their products.
Recently Developed Products:
We’ve been developing packaging since we opened our doors over 20 years ago. We are happy to share our expertise, and we’re always willing to consult with our customers as they process through the development of their new packaging. We can provide feedback and direction regarding packaging style, strength, material types and thickness, closure options, etc. Additionally, we offer state-of-the-art printing that can be a game-changer for your product. Although we don’t provide full packaging design services, we are happy to share our insight and offer consultative direction as you process through your new product ideas.
One of our latest collaborations on developing products: Company Profile, Penetration Hooks.Johnny Miles of Penetration Hooks came to us with his patented fish hook design in need of a unique packaging solution.
A solution that would solve the following issues:
- A packaging material that would be strong enough to withstand sharp products.
- A way to cut down on the cost of assembly.
- A bag that would grab the attention of customers, but without overshadowing the products.
After careful collaboration, our Custom Packaging lead, Denae Horneman, along with Mr. Miles and our Industry Expert, Bill Patrick designed a solution that was perfect for retail display. The end result was a new 6mil bag that offered great protection, durability, and could visually captivate customers. Due to the thickness of the material, there was no issue with the hooks destroying the bags. And by taking the step over to custom printing, the cost of assembly went down with the elimination of insert cards and the labor to place them in.
We have enjoyed working with Johnny in developing a unique and innovated packaging design for the fishing industry. Penetration Hooks will be one of the first to showcase this design and is working hard to promote their product to large markets.
