Materials to Keep Your Product Fresh and Safe

All our flat pouches are made with high-barrier film, which helps extend the shelf life of perishable goods by preventing contamination and entry of oxygen and moisture. These high barrier films have an average oxygen transfer rate (OTR) of .06 to .065.

We currently offer pouches using the following materials:

  • Clear Barrier Film is excellent for showing products off to customers and has the additional benefit of being crease- and crack-proof;
  • White Barrier Film offers a good solid background for full-color printing; and
  • Metallized Barrier Film is a polymer film coated on one side with a layer of aluminum to give it a glossy silvery appearance.

Each of these materials has the following properties:

Note: Pouches are food-safe and are ideal for both solid and liquid foodstuffs.

Flat pouches can be finished with either:

  • Glossy coating which adds a brilliant, glare-free luster to printed images; or
  • Matte coating which adds a satiny texture that makes printed text easier to read.

Print as Much as You Need

There is no minimum order required. You can choose to print just one (1) sample pouch or order up to 50,000 pieces for a maximized production run.

Production turnaround runs between three (3) to six (6) business days, excluding shipping time. Shipping/transit time is dependent on your zip code and production will be assigned to the facility closest to your location to ensure prompt delivery.

Note: Production and shipping time do not include weekends or public holidays.

Options for Display and Convenience

Round or Euro-style (sombrero-type) hang-holes for suspended display can be punched ¼” from the top rim of each package.

Tear notches on both sides of the top for easy opening are automatically included.

We likewise offer an optional zipper lock as an added means for ensuring the freshness of products. These are normally 10 mm. in height and are positioned 1.5” from the top trim of each package.
