Additional 2/3 side seal pouch types and services:
- Custom shapes/die cuts
- Retort and hot-filled applications (when contents are pre-cooked or will be cooked inside the pouch)
- Double cut (for full bleed graphics)
Tear notches provide a starting point for the consumer to tear the pouch open.
A hole punched into the top of the pouch allows it to hang on a hook in the store.
Standard or custom handle holes assist the consumer with carrying large, awkward or heavy pouches.
Vents allow air to move through the pouch and prevent it from bursting when squeezed or flattened.
Our variety of zippers includes small and large flange, leak-resistant, hook-and-loop, tactile, soft touch, and powder-resistant.
Sliders can be applied at the top of the pouch or be hooded (protected inside the pouch and accessible after the pouch is torn open).
Child-resistant closures are important for certain products. Press-to-close and slider options are available.
Hanging bundles on wicket wires can reduce hand-loading time for filling. Once the pouches are filled, the wicket and wicket lip are removed.
The top layer of film is lightly scored to assist the consumer in opening the pouch (often placed between tear notches).
A dashed line is punched through all film layers to assist the consumer in opening the pouch.
One-way valves allow gases to escape the pouch without letting oxygen in. This keeps certain products fresher and can improve shelf life.
Spouts can be applied for fill-through and fill-past applications. They can be packed in bundles or on rails.
Corner rounding eliminates sharp 90° edges. They are created using a die cut, so they are easily paired with full bleed designs.
Labels, such as removable coupons or freshness seals, can be applied during the production process.
Codes can be printed on the pouch during production for traceability, reward codes, or any other application.
