Read a Real World PaperBlister Success Story
By using existing equipment, Pentel® was able to retrofit their Aergo 8 sealing machine to produce an entirely new style of sustainable packaging. Moving from a traditional face seal plastic blister package to a Sonoco Alloyd manufactured mono-material PaperBlister style package, Pentel disrupted the writing industry with eye-catching graphics and packaging layout in the sea of plastic retail blister packs.
Sonoco Alloyd’s PaperBlister package is now How2Recycle® prequalified!
PaperBlister packaging has won multiple industry awards for smart design and innovative sustainability. Our packaging has been recognized by:
- Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries
- American Forest & Paper Association
- Sustainable Packaging Coalition

Seeing Is Believing
Die Cut Windows
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, allowing them to verify the product’s authenticity and establish an immediate sense of trust. 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 creative and unique brand identity.
Giving consumers an up-close and personal look at your products can simplify the decision-making process, resulting in faster sales.
