Easy-To-Use DIY Pick and Pluck Packaging Foam

Packaging something to be shipped can be as easy as wrapping old, crumpled newspaper around an item and sending it on its way. Other times, storage or shipping solutions require a more delicate touch, and the amount of detail required is usually tied to the value and fragility of what’s being shipped. For situations where a run of the mill packing material won’t get the job done, DIY pick and pluck foam can give you custom foam without technical expertise.

The usefulness of this product is due to its pre-scored, perforated structure that allows the user to easily pull away the ½ inch cubes into the shape of what will be packaged. These squares can be sliced away with a knife or just as easily pulled apart by hand without damaging the foam insert. These mat foam sheets can come in various thicknesses for casing deeper items, whether you need 1 inch foam or 10 inches of foam. Layering multiple sheets allows you to pick and pluck away different levels of the stack for 360 degrees of protection around an intricate item. The only rule with pick and pluck is to tear or cut away cubes in a pattern slightly smaller than the item that will be encased so it can expand against the object and hold it snugly. This unique material is available in multiple foam densities for customizing your insert to lighter or heavier products and is even made in anti-static formulations for protecting delicate electronics.

The level of customization pick and pluck foam packaging provides makes it perfect for shipping because you can quickly have a one-of-a-kind insert that will safely hold your item and absorb impact and shock.
