Skin Board Packaging
Quick and Economical Skin Board Packaging
At Valcraft Printing & Packaging, we want to help you find the best packaging options that meet the needs of your products. Skin board packaging is the process in which your product is attached to the backing card with a plastic over top that holds your product in place.
Once the sheet has been packaged; it is then separated into individual packages with either the use of a die cutter, hand paper cutter or knife. Most items then will need to have a hanger hole punched into them to allow for peg hook hanging. If using the die cutting method a steel rule die is made which includes the hanger hole as well as usually rounded corners which will help reduce damage to corners (dog ears) in shipping and handling.
Skin Board Sizing
Skin Boards are printed in full sheets to match the machine in which it will be packed. Most common machine sizes are: 18”x24”, 24”x30” or 24”x36”, but custom variations are also available. Most sheets will have multiple items per sheet in either a set configuration or a simply repeated pattern for multiple uses.
