Custom Formed Tray Ordering Process

Step 1 – Design & Engineering

After product specifications and requirements have been made available by the Buyer, Locked4Kids will design the L4K-Carton and L4K-Tray in accordance with CRSF certification requirements. Preliminary drawings of L4K-Carton die-lines and a drawing of the L4K-Tray will be provided to the Buyer for approval.

Lead time shall be approximately 2 weeks.

In case the Buyer wishes to change the drawings, step 1 will be repeated using the new input of the customer. The price indicated on our quote form is the price per set of drawings.

Step 2 – Prototyping

Upon receipt of written approval of the preliminary drawings from the Buyer, 10 prototypes will be produced of both the L4K-Carton and L4K-Tray. These prototypes will be provided to the Buyer for approval (5 prototypes to be signed and returned).

Lead time shall be approximately 1 week.

In case the Buyer wishes to change the prototypes, Steps 1 and 2 will be repeated using the new input of the customer. The price indicated on our quote form is the price per set of prototypes.

Step 3 – Final Approval

Upon receipt of the approved L4K-Prototypes from the Buyer, the drawings for L4K-Carton and L4K-Tray will be finalized by Locked4Kids and thereafter made available to the Buyer, including material specifications and tolerances.

The die-line drawing for the L4K-Carton can be used for preparing the artwork as well as for the production of the die-cutting tooling. The 3d file of the L4K-Tray is available upon request and can be used as starting point for the manufacturing of the production mold.

Lead time shall be approximately 1 week.
