Carded packaging which includes such processes as skin and blister
packaging, clamshell packaging and Stretch Pak is a cost-effective way
to offer a high level of security, visibility and marketability to small

Skin Packaging refers to the process of applying plastic film to affix
product to substrate of paperboard or corrugated sheet through the use
of heat and vacuum. Blister packaging involves applying pre-formed
rigid plastic film to affix product to a paperboard substrate or to
encapsulate product in a clamshell style unit. Stretch Pak allows the
product to be viewed in a 360-degree visibility format while being held
securely in place with crystal clear DuPont Surlyn flexible film.
