The Blister Pack from G.SKILL can be easily opened without a knife, so there is no risk of injuries. The plastic feels a bit soft, I think a bit stronger plastic might be a good improvement to reduce the risk of shipping damage.

The "background" paper in the blister pack can be folded open and reveals some info about G.SKILL, their testing methods and a contact address.

Each module has a sticker on it, which gives the rated speed and the stock timings.

The heatspreaders are golden color, but they seem to be made from a very light-weight metal, certainly not copper.

Also the area where contact is made with the memory is rather small, so I doubt the heatspreaders contribute to the memory's performance. At least they help protect against breaking off any small components when installing/uninstalling the memory.
