The original inventor of this packaging cannot be verified, and the earliest record we can find now is the patent US2415859A registered by Enock Ancker on Feb 18, 1947, Then in 1971, M Nichols submit an Apparatus for inserting tablets into blister packages(patent US3724165A), which is very similar to the modern Blister Packaging Machine. The blister packaging, however, can be almost confirmed that it appeared earlier than the Internet. As early as the beginning of the twentieth century, there was a similar packaging, although it used thin glass, not modern polymer composites. It seems that the blister packaging is an evolved version of the above glass packaging with the development of the technology. So, do you think the thin glass packaging belongs to blister packaging? Not accurate, but generally, people think the blister packaging was invented in the middle of the 20th century.
