Blister packaging, or blister packs as they are often called, are an inexpensive option for creating packages that are durable, transparent, and tamper proof. Showcase your product in the best possible manner with a custom designed blister pack. Although we strive to provide our customers a very competitive price, we will not sacrifice quality of any blister packaging to do so. All products are tested for clarity, wall thickness, and dimensional compliance before the blister pack leaves our plant.
A clear plastic blister pack can be used in conjunction with a cardboard blister card to keep the product in full view for the customer to examine. The blister packaging is attached to the blister card through a heat-sealing process that allows the product to be displayed in a wide variety of methods. While this heat sealing process can be done with highly automated equipment, the use of blister packs is somewhat limited to light weight items. For heavier contents, a plastic clamshell would be an excellent consideration.
