FAQs - Transparent Packaging


Q: Why use Transparent Packaging?

Q: What is Jetran® Packaging?

Jetran® is a patented process for making clear tubes in various shapes including Circular, Square, Oval, Hexagonal and Triangular to any length.

Q: How do I close the top and bottom of the tube?

Q: Do I have to pay origination charges?

A: Providing you can utilise one of our 350 + standard shapes and sizes you pay no origination charges.

Q: How are the Jetran® tubes supplied?

A: All Jetran® products are supplied flat but pre glued and creased – This saves both storage space and shipping costs - You simply ease back the creases to open the tube before inserting the end caps.

Q: What is Jetlok®?

A: Jetlok® is another patented design that is unique to Bell Packaging – It’s a type of end cap that can be locked to the Jetran® tube and then re-opened and closed giving you a reusable piece of packaging.

Q: What is Retran®?
