Whether you sell stationery or razors, pencils or toy cars, you need packaging that will attract consumers and keep your products safe during shipping and handling. Blister packaging is a great solution for manufacturers of small consumer goods. Here are a few of the most common questions Packaging Plus gets about blister packaging and blister cards.

What is blister packaging?

We’ve all purchased products that are blister sealed or in clamshell packaging. Blister packaging allows people to see your product before they buy it, which makes it a great option for consumer goods. Clear plastic—the blister—is thermoformed around the product then sealed to protect it during handling and shipping.

The blister sealing process involves computer-aided design layout of your product, determining a suitable plastic type, and applying temperature to mold the plastic to your product’s shape. Packaging Plus monitors stress and strain conditions throughout the blister sealing process to make sure your product stays safe and undamaged. We design and develop all different kinds of blisters and clamshells.

What products are good candidates for blister packaging?

Blister packaging is an excellent packaging choice when you want consumers to see your product while it’s on the store shelf. Packaging Plus can design custom packaging for your product, from toys and electronics to hardware and personal care products.

Can I order printed blister cards with my blister packaging?

Absolutely.
