Insert Cards – Backer Cards

We Think Like The Box…

Insert cards and backer cards are essential components when packaging products inside plastic clamshells, slide blisters and clear cartons. Lightweight insert cards can be custom formed to fit some cavities and fill voids. Backer cards are commonly more rigid and sit flat behind the product which can reinforce hanger punches or offer internal pilfer resistance.
