The Benefits of Flexible Packaging

Custom pouches offer a wide variety of benefits that you don’t usually get with traditional packaging.

  • Flexible packaging is adjustable to your product size. You can even store liquids in custom pouches without worrying about spillage! Pouches come with various size options that expand and stand up or stay flat to accommodate items. The flat bags are thin and lightweight, ideal for singles, samples, and any products offered in few quantities. Stand-up pouches have a bottom-gusset that expands when filled, so these are ideal for products with heavier volume.

  • Custom packaging is more affordable. Pouches weigh less and don’t take up too much room in storage so that you can save on inventory and transport costs. You can ship more products, save storage space, and improve your profit margins.

  • Custom pouches protect your products. Widely used in the food industry, pouches and bags are made of heavy-duty barrier film that keeps items fresh while extending their shelf life. The material also helps block moisture, oxygen, and external odors from permeating your product.

  • Flexible packaging is convenient for both retailers and consumers. You can add round-type or euro-style hang-holes for suspended displays to save space on retail shelves. Add resealable zippers to keep your products protected after they’ve been opened. Customers find pouches more practical because of the resealable zippers that keep the contents fresh.

How to Design Effective Flexible Packaging

Choose a suitable material for your product and design. Custom pouch high-barrier films come in white, clear, and metallized options.

  • Clear Barrier Film is crease and crack-proof. It is perfect for showing the contents of the bag to customers.

  • White Barrier Film offers a good solid background for full-color printing.

  • Metallized Barrier Film gives a glossy, metallic appearance for a more eye-catching design.
