Flexible Packaging Has Improved Stand Up Pouches Shelf Appeal

Maximize Shelf Appeal by Changing to Stand-Up bags

Pouches use much less material than other traditional packaging methods like corrugated cartons or laminated boxes. The bags can be customized to meet your needs, but you need to understand why these stand up pouch can be very beneficial for your business. Understand how the stand-up pouch is made cheaper and run more efficiently than you might think.

The first thing to learn about the stand-up pouch is that they consist of co-extruded material from 3- layer, 5-layer, 7-layer, 9-layer or material could be a single monolayer and laminated with a number of other film structures from pet, nylon, metalized pet, foil bags, etc. It can be printed up to 10 color line or printed with your logo or design, so the potential really makes an impact on retail shelves.

Pouches are made from a continuous web of material in which the first step in the bag manufacturing process happened when it went through a series of plows that fold the material into a gusset w-shape in the bottom so that the bag will be able to stand.

Now if you want a re-closable zipper as part of your pouch it is sealed on the inside of the face of the web near the top edge of the material. Re-closable zippers are the most common method, but spouts, perforations, and other re-closable openings are also available.
