Blister packaging offers your business a customized packaging solution to fit the unique needs of your products. Seen across several industries and product lines, such as over-the-counter medication blister packs and small hardware items like washers and screws, blister packaging can be tailored to your product line and offers the flexibility to add your branding to the design imprint. The thermoforming process used to mold the plastic portion allows a range of products sizes to be safely and economically packaged for retail. At West Penn, we pride ourselves on working with your business deadlines and needs to produce quality, economical, and customized blister packaging that exceeds your expectations.

How Does Blister Packaging Work?

Unlike clamshell packaging, which encases your products within two sides of a hard plastic shell that is often difficult and frustrating for your customers to open, blister packaging uses a thin, thermoformed plastic blister attached to paperboard cards. This system allows the plastic blister to be designed to fit your product shape, creating an attractive display of your product with an economic benefit of less wasted plastic to package your product. The easily accessed product within the blister packaging creates a more customer-friendly approach to packaging when compared to encased clamshell packaging since customers can quickly access the product by peeling the plastic blister away from the paperboard cards or punch the product through the paperboard cards. Production of blister packaging offers the ability to used recycled blisters, creating an environmentally friendly packaging solution. With rapid production rates due to the efficient process of heat sealing the blister, blister packaging can help your business meet deadlines for product preparation.
