  • A Cut Above

    PaperBlister packaging increases the amount of space available for graphics, promotional messaging, product instructions, safety information and unique die-cut windows. Die-cut windows give consumers an advance look at the actual product (versus relying on a picture), allowing them to verify the product’s authenticity and establish an immediate sense of trust. The use of more creative and strategically placed die-cut windows is allowing manufacturers to highlight their products in new and interesting ways.

  • Seeing is Believing

    With a die-cut window on the front of your product’s PaperBlister packaging, consumers can start appreciating your product’s value immediately. In fact, studies show that windowpane cutouts have a favorable impact on product choice, trustworthiness and sales. According to Mintel, die-cut windows draw curiosity and attention and allow consumers to become more familiar with your product. Some companies (e.g., cosmetics) use die-cut windows to give their products a more premium look. Others use them to help establish a unique brand identity. What’s more, giving consumers an up-close and personal look at your products can simplify the decision-making process, resulting in faster sales.
