Blister packaging is a type of packaging where a product is secured between a pre-formed, transparent plastic dome or bubble and a paperboard surface or carrier. Attachment is usually made by heat-sealing. The two components that need to be developed for this packaging are the blister card and the blister.
A Blister Pack Example
The blister card is a printed paperboard backer carrying the product's sales message and instructions for use. Coated on one side with specially formulated heat-seal adhesive to allow for a secure bond to the board.
The blister itself is a thermoformed semi-rigid plastic shell, generally shaped to conform to the product to be packaged. As in skin packaging, this is a fantastic way to retail your product, giving you the added capability of "Hang Selling" in the stores.
