Skin Packaging is a process whereby a product is covered by a closely fitting transparent film on one side and paperboard on the other. During the sealing process a vacuum is used to draw the heated film around the product and bond it to the board. Individual packages are then die cut.
The printed board is a specially designed paperboard that allows a vacuum to be drawn through it. Board contains repeated printed impressions of individual cards, with your product sales message and instructions for use. Heat seal adhesive is applied over the printing. This is what allows the film to adhere to the board. It offers a protective seal while allowing good product visibility.
