There are so many different methods when it comes to packaging. One very popular method of packaging in the retail industry are blister packs. Blister packaging is probably the method of packaging you will most commonly see around, batteries, children’s toys and medication are a few examples of products that are often packaged in blister packs.
Blister packs secure a product in between a cardboard backing and clear, thermoformed plastic. It is a very popular packaging method because it offers the opportunity to examine the product through the clear plastic as well as promote the product with eye-catching graphics and wording on the cardboard. Blister packs also make it easier for consumers to get into the packaging as a special adhesive is used to stick the thermoformed plastic to the cardboard backing, and this can easily be pulled off, whereas other method of packaging such as clamshell can cause a little bit of a struggle as it is held to another piece of plastic enhancing strength. Blister packs also have a hole in the top of the cardboard so it is easier to hang from a peg and therefore can be shown on complete display in a shop.
Blister packs are a relatively cost effective method of packaging and also very practical for smaller products. They are also very easily customised for your needs and the cardboard can display your own chosen design for promotion. Bright colours can be used to easily draw attention and also the small, individual compartments ensures the product doesn’t move too much and therefore offering more security and protection for the product when in transit.
