A technology that combines High-Quality, Registered Printing with Thermoforming lets brand owners add tactile interest to blisters, bottles, cartons and more.

Something’s happening in a small Canadian town that’s shaking up the packaging industry. It’s a technology from converter think4D Inc. that merges the visual pop of high-definition flexography with the fingertip appeal of thermoformed details. The touch-friendly technology can be used to create clamshell packaging, plastic folding cartons, plastic rigid cartons, pressure-sensitive labels, sleeves and point-of-sale materials.

Thermoforming Breakthrough

The packaging is a common enough format: a trapped blister that is thermoformed of PET. But it’s no ordinary thermoforming that we’re talking about here. This package is one of the first commercial applications of a patent-protected technology from Canada’s think4D. It combines printing and thermoforming in a way that produces a package having an unusually tactile quality. In fact, it’s as if the little shaving device itself is perched on top of the plastic thermoform.

Friesens Corporation (the parent company of think4D) has long enjoyed a reputation as an innovative manufacturer of print and book products. But just over five years ago, the company began diversifying its product offering into consumer packaging.

think4D is a unique technology that combines high quality printing with shapes and texture to create product packages that appeal to multiple senses of the potential buyer.
