Every great idea starts somewhere. Whether you just have a concept in mind, a sketch laid out on a piece of paper or a CAD drawing, our team is ready to help bring it to life.

We have considerable experience in helping our client’s refine their vision and translate it into a working design through our in-house team of designers.

Let us “Shepherd It”!

tell us about your project

Tool & Prototype

By having a better understanding of your product, its application and the drawing in hand, the next step is to develop a prototype tool to form physical samples of what you want to create.

Ren Tool

At Shepherd Thermoforming, we create cost-effective prototype tools using a material known as Ren. It provides an ultra-fine surface finish that is resistance to shrinkage and warping with a superior reproduction of intricate detail.

Prototype Sample

By prototyping your project, we are able to give you a better understanding of what the production run pieces will look like. This helps iron out any problems that you may not have accounted for in the design phase and as a result, we can resolve any issues that may arise before they hit the production line.


The final step in your product’s packaging journey is production. Our manufacturing division has processed nearly 400 Million custom thermoformed products over the past five years.

We have extensive experience working with both thin and heavy gauge plastic parts. With a 24 x 5 operational schedule, we can complete your orders to deadline, in a cost-effective manner and to your exact specifications.
