Tips for Shipping Items With Custom Foam:
There may be several times in your life when you are faced with the dilemma of how to pack your items for safe shipping or even bringing them along with you as you travel. Shipping is easy when you use custom foam inserts, though. You can make your own foam inserts or have them custom made depending on the item/s you are going to pack and/or the packaging that you are comfortable using.
DIY Custom Foam
If you choose to make your own custom foam inserts, be sure you are skilled enough to make your item fit securely between the protective padding. Remember that cubed foam comes in different sizes and may not fit perfectly into the cavities you wish to fill up. You may cube the foam yourself but be prepared to provide allowance for breakage and degeneration because of the frequency of pulling and pushing in and out of the items while in transit. If your items do not need custom foam to be manufactured by a professional, this is a cheap, quick, and practical packing solution.
Professionally Manufactured Foam
The best way to protect your valuable items when shipping them is by purchasing professionally manufactured custom foam inserts. Custom foam provides maximum protection against damage and can be fitted according to how your shipping cases are constructed. Since custom foam inserts are cut from large foam blocks, you can easily obtain custom foam cuts that are the correct size and thickness. This costs a little more expensive than cubed foam; however, guaranteed protection often makes up for the additional cost.
Learn Which Foam Production Method Satisfies Your Needs
Fortunately there are custom foam varieties that are designed specifically for your shipping needs. For example, if you require a large volume of shipping packing, die-cut custom foam is the most efficient and cost effective solution. However, if you are looking for foam that will tightly pack your goods, filling up any empty cavities, custom foam that is hand cut using a bandsaw is an excellent solution. Note that this type of custom foam is reserved for a skilled technician, who uses certain cut-to-size patterns. Need custom foam that is cut precisely, filling any small gaps? If so, water jet-cut custom foam is easily sized and still very precise. There is time required for drying, though. So, if time is of the essence, be prepared for this minor holdup. There are many other ways custom foam is manufactured, so it is important to do your research and decide what is best for your specific custom foam needs.
