After initial design work is complete, prototyping is a crucial next step in ensuring your package functions properly and is consistent with your brand standards. Packaging prototypes often serve as the last step before heading to the tooling phase. It’s important during the prototype stage to identify potential design improvements. Making modifications at this point can help avoid problems in the manufacturing process that can result in serious cost consequences.
At First Choice Packaging (FCP), we offer these options:
3D Printed Molds - Often the first pass at implementing CAD designs into a molded form, prototypes made using a 3D printed mold are typically used to assess the packaging's fit and function and are often used for presentations to demonstrate the packaging concept. FCP can deliver these prototypes in as little as 48-hours.
Ren or Aluminum Molds – Much closer to the finalized packaging form, these molds can be used to make prototypes that more closely resemble production parts for presentations and product and market testing.
Be quick-to-market. Be very good. Be very fast. Be Thermoformidable.
