1. Reduce Packaging Costs

Opting for a blister card can be a great way to save money. Reducing the amount of plastic used will reduce your packaging costs, and we do all we can to eliminate packaging waste. It is not ideal to spend money on packaging you don’t really need, and our design team is always looking for ways to reduce the size of packaging while still protecting and displaying your product to its best advantage.

2. Increase Sustainability

Some blister packaging can really reduce the amount of plastic needed to protect a product and this increases sustainability. 

While plastics often get a bad rap, these materials actually can be your most eco-friendly option. For instance, these materials are much lighter in weight than cardboard, glass and aluminum. Therefore transporting plastic materials requires the use of less fossil fuel. 

The light weight combined with our ability to create smaller custom packaging designs allows you to ship more units in one shipment, which saves fuel and reduces your overall transportation costs.

3. Blisters Protect Better Than Other Materials

The likelihood of a consumers purchasing a product if they can see it is far higher then if they cannot see the product, and clear blister card packaging allows them to view your items and compare them with other products. Additionally, plastic is impact-resistant and moisture-resistant, which protects whatever is placed inside. Using plastic materials is the best way to ensure that your product stays safe during transport as well as when it sits on a store shelf or hangs from a peg.

The cost of your blister packaging will depend on the type of blister card you choose. For instance, a less expensive and lightweight item such as a disposable lighter probably would be the perfect choice for a basic face seal blister. If your product is a bit heavier or more expensive, you might opt for a full-face seal or full card blister as these packages are more tamper-resistant. If you truly need the ultimate level of protection, we probably will recommend that you opt for a sealed clamshell as these are highly tamper-resistant.
