The clear plastic thermoformed blister packaging is most often combined with a printed card which has a heat-seal coating so the plastic blister can adhere to the card. Sometimes foil, plastic or laminated materials are bonded to the pre-formed blister in place of the printed card. When a blister pack is tampered with, it is obvious, thus the blister package is a very popular style when a product must remain secure for the end user.
