GO2MFG, formerly Proto-Form, is your single source for retail display and packaging design, prototyping, manufacturing and execution. We are a full-service partner with design, engineering, prototyping, manufacturing and in-store execution expertise in-house.
With over 25 years of experience in the retail display and packaging world, the team at GO2MFG can meet any display and packaging needs you have. We are your Go-To Source for all your prototyping, packaging and display needs.
Starting with an initial concept or idea, our team can manage the engineering and structural design to make sure your display, product packaging or signage effectively and efficiently comes to life, stands out in-store and moves your merchandise.
As part of our design process, we prototype and test EVERYTHING to make sure we’ve covered all the bases and no elements of your display or product packaging are left to chance. With our in-house corrugate, plastic, wood and metal capabilities, including 3D printing, we can prototype any idea you have.
Got a critical meeting with a buyer or retailer to get your product placed in-store? We’ve got you covered. Our in-house capabilities allow us to produce full-color mock-ups of your product or display to help make sure your program gets sold in.
Physical mock-ups tell a great story, but sometimes you don’t need that level of finish. Sometimes, a 3D rendering is the best solution. We do that, too. Whether it’s a rendering of your product package, your display or even an entire category, we can produce 3D renderings that are detailed, accurate and realistic.
Depending on your display and packaging needs, we have the capability to support whatever print process best suits the program. Our in-house digital printing capabilities allow us to quickly print to a wide variety of materials, and our Print Management team works with our world-class offset and flexo print partners on larger print runs to make sure your project prints perfectly.
Need your display to live in-store for several months? We’re experts in permanent display manufacturing, using plastics, wood and metal, so you’re guaranteed to get the life out of your display you need. Need something more temporary? We also design and produce corrugate display programs, so we’ve got you covered there, too.
Not every program requires a full roll-out. Sometimes you only need a handful of displays. Sometimes you might need 200. Short-run production isn’t a problem for us. As a matter of fact, we have a team set up specifically to handle projects just like this. So whether it’s a full-scale roll-out or a short-run test, we can manage whatever the need is.
Not only can we design and produce your display, we are also set up to manage the assembly and pack-out of your program. You want your program to hit stores requiring the fewest touches possible by store associates. We can make sure your displays deliver to stores fully assembled, completely stocked with product and ready for the sales floor.
Once your program is ready to ship, we can work with your logistics team to coordinate shipping and delivery. If you prefer, our team can manage the entire logistics process. Whether your program needs to deliver to DCs, direct to stores or to a third-party for installation, we can manage that process for you.
Need help in getting your signage or display installed at the store? We can manage that for you, also. Our team has years of experience partnering with preferred in-store execution suppliers to develop installation plans that best guarantee your program is placed on the shelf or on the floor on-time and with no issues.
Need to make a big splash at a special event? We know the drill and have been doing it for years. From year-beginning meetings; to holiday meetings; to trade shows and traveling road shows; all the way down to buyer presentations and line reviews, our team designs and produces best-in-class brand experiences to get your programs noticed.
I have worked with Scott for almost 10 years. The best description I have of him is “Artist”. Though many have used his services for molds, vac-forms, and product prototyping, his insights from years of working with agencies and marketing firms help him make good decisions regarding timing and delivery. When I talk of Scott to others, I describe him as a Master Fabricator. He invents ways to show a true replication of the potential product or sample you may desire. He is one of the most humble people I have ever met, and he constantly helps me come up with ideas or solutions to tough problems, even when the work may not come through his door.
Scott is your goto man for plastic packaging as well as any of those odd things that you just dont know who could make that widget that you need. He is always willing to take on that task, work with your deadlines, and reasonably priced. He has continually made me look good to my clients. Give him a call for anything that you want done right!
Great person to work with and great person. He really knows what he is doing. Can do anything.
Scott is a great guy and easy to work with. His range of skills is broad and when I get stumped on a project he is one that I call. I always enjoy working with him and he has always delivered. Last time under budget!
