Blister pack packaging is that thick, tightly sealed, clear hard plastic casing that we all struggle to open. But once we get our hands on a pair of scissors, the goodies within make the tricky blister packs worth all the struggle in the world. That’s similar to the feeling your customers will have when they break through our sturdy blister card packaging and finally get to your dank vape cartridges, dab syringes, or concentrate containers within. Except that our blister card packaging is MUCH easier to open than those from other blister packaging suppliers.
Blister packaging for vape cartridges is often also called clamshell packaging - which is an adage to the sea creature’s hardy, resistant-to-open, hinged shell. Clamshell case packaging is widely used across the world in many shapes and styles - for example, the plastic berry containers at the grocery store are clamshell blister packaging. Some are easier to open than others, but most styles are considered safe and secure packaging options that display products for customers while keeping them safely sealed inside.
Our full line of blister pack wholesale varieties is specially designed to protect your vape cartridges, dab syringes, or 6ml concentrate containers (which hold up to 1 gram of most concentrates) from harm during transit, display, and sale. The hard shell clam packaging designs are easy to clasp and, in contrast to others on the market, fairly easy to pop back open! But the nice part is they won’t pop open on their own - they’ll wait for your customers’ eager, prying fingers.
Come learn more about our line of blister pack packaging and all of its advantageous benefits.
What Is A Blister Pack?
One of the most common blister pack types is the clamshell case described above, but not all blister packaging products are clamshell packaging. Face-seal blister packs and full-face blister packs are two other common blister pack types. Both are used for packaging things such as toothbrushes, pills, and batteries, and both involve heat sealing to a cardboard or foil backing.
While those two common blister packs are great for so many products, we prefer sturdy, sealed clamshell packaging for concentrates and vape carts - its hardy resilience and stiff shape make clam packaging the perfect protection for the small, delicate containers within. The only blister retail packaging we sell is clamshell packaging, and it’s all designed to be dab syringe, concentrate jar, or vape cartridge blister packaging. We even make two different blister pack cartridge cases: one for flat tipped and one for round tipped mouthpieces.
A blister pack box has several advantages, but the two best things about clamshell blister packaging are product visibility and protection. Our clear blister pack wholesale styles are specially designed to snuggly fit your vape cartridges, dab syringes, or 6mL concentrate jars in a pre-formed mold against a flat backing*. This design makes the products literally pop out on the shelves, grabbing customers’ attention as they shop.
*The 6mL concentrate jar blister pack packaging doesn’t sit against a perfectly flat background - it juts slightly out the back in its protective plastic mold. This is because the jars have a thicker diameter than the vape carts or syringes, and allowing the jar to jut out the back a bit balances the containers better.
What Types of Blister Pack Packaging Are There?
Our standard blister packaging collection is entirely made up of small plastic clamshell packaging, half of which are tri fold clamshell packaging cases. Tri fold clamshell blister card packaging is made with a flat base that angles inward toward the top, clasping tightly with a punch-out for hanging. This allows the packaging to stand on a shelf or hang from a wall - giving you more options to display your products in dispensaries.
There are three different varieties for three different concentrate products: two sizes/shapes of clamshell blister packaging for vape cartridges, a clamshell case for dab syringes, and one clamshell case for a 6mL concentrate jar. Let’s take a deeper dive into each one.
Vape Cartridge Blister Packaging
Our blister packaging for vape cartridges, which can also be called an e cigarette blister pack, comes in two different styles for two mouthpiece types: round and flat. Out of our whole cart packaging collection, vape cartridge blister packaging is one of the simplest yet most protective products. If blister packs aren’t your products’ vibe, though, we recommend checking out our simple plastic vape tube collection.
Round Mouthpiece Blister Pack Cartridge Boxes
The blister pack packaging for round mouthpiece vape cartridges is tri fold clamshell packaging and comes in one size that fits both 0.5mL cartridges and 1mL cartridges.
Flat Mouthpiece Blister Pack Cartridge Boxes
These small clamshell containers are NOT tri fold clamshell e cigarette blister pack boxes, meaning they can either hang or sit in a retail display box on a countertop/in a glass case. They come in two different sizes: one for 0.5mL cartridges and one that fits both 1mL and 2mL cartridges.
Dab Syringe Blister Card Packaging
We make two syringe blister packaging clamshell cases: one tri fold blister pack for 0.5mL AND 1mL dab syringes, and one non-tri fold clamshell case for the 1mL dab syringe applicators in our collection.
Clam Packaging for 6mL Concentrate Jars
We make one tri fold clamshell blister pack for our 6mL plastic concentrate jar. We chose this size because the 6mL plastic dab jar can hold up to 1 gram of most concentrates, which is (typically) the standard amount that concentrates are sold in at marijuana dispensaries.
Is Clamshell Packaging Child Resistant?
Our clamshell packaging is not child resistant blister packaging, which is both a pro and a con. The pro of our blister box packaging NOT being child resistant is that it’s much easier to open than many CR styles from other blister packaging suppliers. The con, however, is that many states have implemented child resistant cannabis packaging legal requirements.
If your state requires CR dispensary packaging, you may or may not still be able to use our display blister packaging. In some states, you can meet CR packaging requirements by placing cannabis products into child resistant exit packaging. Most of the time, these are opaque, child resistant mylar bags. So, even though our blister kit vape cart, dab syringe, and dab jar boxes are clear and non-CR, all you need are some CR-certified exit bags and you should be good to go!

You may have noticed that we didn’t mention any color or insert options for our blister packaging, but that’s because we wanted you to focus on the basics before we dove into the specifics. But don’t worry - we can absolutely make your blister packaging stylish.

We can either implement your existing branding or, if you’re just starting out, help you design your ideal cardboard inserts.

Let us help you design the custom blister packs of your dreams here at Marijuana Packaging.
Frequently Asked Questions About Blister Pack
What is Blister Packaging?
Blister packaging is hardy plastic molded to fit and clasp around specific product shapes, such as vape cartridges, dab syringes, and concentrate jars. We use clamshell blister packaging, which is hinged at one end and has buttons that clasp along the other three sides. Clamshell blister packaging is a great way to both proudly display and securely protect your valuable concentrate products.
What Are The Benefits of Blister Packaging?
Blister packaging is super simple, super affordable, customizable, secure packaging that makes your potent concentrate creations easy to view and difficult to steal. It also prevents breakage, which can happen easily with glass vape cartridges, dab syringes, and concentrate jars.
What Is Clam Packaging?
Clam packaging, well-known as “clamshell packaging,” is a type of blister packaging. A clamshell case typically has two plastic sides connected by a hinge and plastic button claps along the other three edges (or at least opposite from the hinge). The name is an adage to the hardy, tightly collapsed clamshells in nature. Clamshell packaging is used in all industries from cannabis (cart packaging) to agriculture (berries).
How to Seal Clamshell Packaging
Clamshell packaging typically has small plastic buttons (convex/concave parts that fit tightly together) that hold it shut. There is clam packaging out there that can be heat sealed, but ours doesn’t need to be.
