Anyone know what the name of this packaging is?

I'm looking for a manufaturer of these hard to open plastic packaging things. It's quite hard to find them without knowing what type of plastic it is or something. Anyone know? Or does anyone know someone who develops this type of container?

It's the same type as this.

Hi,

I think they are blister packs.

I believe that is a thermoformed clamshell package.

Thermoformed blister packs have an exposed cardboard backing; whereas the clamshell has plastic all the way round.

The package in the picture may even be bi-fold clamshell, although as I cannot see the front, I'm unsure of this.

If you would like the packaging designed for you, try a place like www.kingswood-plastics.co.uk who have a three day design and sample service.
Although I have not used them myself (I found them via eBay).

Edited to add; I have found another manufacture that has an example gallery on there site. www.impact-mfg.com/store/gallery.asp
