Thistle’s custom vinyl tool pouches and sleeves provide a practical way to protect your product in an environmentally friendly, safe, and reusable package. With one or multiple pockets to secure individual tools, the tool pouches typically have flaps with a snap or Velcro closure.
Thistle’s tool pouches are often made to hang in a retail point-of-sale environment and can be reused as an after-market case to protect the items purchased. A variety of hanging options are offered, including butterfly hanger holes, reinforced hanger holes, and hanger holes with grommets (to support the heavier pouches). The tool pouches can be customized using screen printing with standard ink colors or PMS color-match options. Roll-up, adhesive-back, and magnetic-back tool pouches are also available.
In addition to holding tools, Thistle’s pouches have also been used for cosmetics, cosmetic brushes, sunglasses, combs, tweezers, optical repair kits, scissors, and knives.
Thistle offers alternatives to PVC-based materials, including polyolefin and EVA, in addition to biodegradable and phthalate-free films that are friendlier to the environment. All PVC and non-PVC plastics are recyclable.
Thistle is one of the few companies in the U.S. with the technology to manufacture finished vinyl products in-house. 100% of the company’s product is manufactured in the U.S. Thistle designs and builds its dies in-house to reduce costs and tailors products to the needs of its customers.
