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)

Available Pouch Features

Tear Notches

Tear notches provide a starting point for the consumer to tear the pouch open.

Hang Holes

A hole punched into the top of the pouch allows it to hang on a hook in the store.

Handle Holes

Standard or custom handle holes assist the consumer with carrying large, awkward or heavy pouches.

Vents

Vents allow air to move through the pouch and prevent it from bursting when squeezed or flattened.

Press-to-Close Zippers & Closures

Our variety of zippers includes small and large flange, leak-resistant, hook-and-loop, tactile, soft touch, and powder-resistant.

Slider Closures

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 Zippers & Sliders

Child-resistant closures are important for certain products. Press-to-close and slider options are available.

Wickets

Hanging bundles on wicket wires can reduce hand-loading time for filling. Once the pouches are filled, the wicket and wicket lip are removed.

Laser Scores

The top layer of film is lightly scored to assist the consumer in opening the pouch (often placed between tear notches).

Perforations

A dashed line is punched through all film layers to assist the consumer in opening the pouch.

One-Way Valves

One-way valves allow gases to escape the pouch without letting oxygen in. This keeps certain products fresher and can improve shelf life.

Spouts

Spouts can be applied for fill-through and fill-past applications. They can be packed in bundles or on rails.

Rounded Corners

Corner rounding eliminates sharp 90° edges. They are created using a die cut, so they are easily paired with full bleed designs.

Labels

Labels, such as removable coupons or freshness seals, can be applied during the production process.

Inkjet Printing

Codes can be printed on the pouch during production for traceability, reward codes, or any other application.
