Stand Out By Using Stand-Up Pouches

Stand-up pouches are a great way to make sure that your products are delivered safe and fresh to your customers.

Designed with a sturdy bottom gusset and a zip-closure at the top, these pouches ensure that products stand tall on display shelves while the contents are protected from moisture and other potential contaminants.

A Pouch for Every Purpose

Stand-up pouches are incredibly handy, effective, and cost-efficient in presenting products at their best. While food items are the most common items to use stand-up pouches for, its unique packaging design lends itself to other applications. Small pouches with a weight capacity of 2 oz. to 4 oz. are best for bite-sized snacks. These are small and handy enough to take with you while hiking on a trail or while on a break in between workouts. Mid-sized pouches are an ingenious way of displaying T-shirts and other pre-packaged clothing supplies. Pouches with capacities of 12 oz. and larger are perfect for cosmetic and bath care sets.

When Materials Matter

Barrier films protect your product from the impact of oxidation, moisture, and unpleasant odors that can affect its quality. All of our pouches are made with high-barrier material with an oxygen transfer rate (OTR) of .06 to .065.

We offer pouches in 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 in production:
