With packaging of cards, it is often necessary to identify the serial number of the card in the package. In order to avoid the time consuming and costly matching of card and package serial numbers, we have developed innovative strategies that expose
the card’s serial number. Usually this is accomplished with a
die-cut window or a clear overwrap film. Below are the most common packaging methods available from Us1.
Fin Seal Overwrap: Us1 uses an in-house Doboy horizontal wrapper for Fin Seal overwrapping. This package seals the card
in a polypropylene package that is crimped on each end and
along the back on a folded “fin”. The crimp cannot be duplicated without the expensive horizontal wrapper. This makes it difficult to open the package without detection thus maintaining the security
of the package. Although we usually use clear film registered metallized ( foil ) film or custom printed film is also available. The
Fin Seal package can include carriers or inserts along with the card. Us1 also offers contract Fin Seal overwrapping to the printing trade. Contract overwrap packaging is available for non- card products.
Paper Envelopes and Carriers: For this method of packaging, the card is usually glued to a printed carrier and then inserted into an envelope. This method is ideal where the card needs to be mailed to the recipient. Us1 can provide addressing and mailing services if required.
Other Packages: Us1 can provide Blister Packs, Clam Shells, Skin Packs as well as Shrink Wraps if needed. We can work with you to develop innovative packaging solutions that work best for your card product.
