Coffee pouches, also known as stand up pouches, are a long-time favorite coffee bag. They feature an appealing, stable design and strike a balance between cost and quality. Additionally, a large opening at the top of the bag facilitates filling it with roasted or green coffee beans quick and easy.
Tear notches, transparent windows, and eye-catching labels, together with high-barrier protection, allow a wide range of branding opportunities. There are choices that are biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.
There are many various types of coffee beans, roasting styles, and forms in which coffee is sold, just as there are many different types of coffee beans, roasting styles, and forms in which coffee is sold.

Coffee Bag Printing
Most clients know what kind of design, size, and features they want based on variables like storage, shipping, and the selling environment, as well as whether the coffee is being packaged for retail or industrial customers. With every coffee bag printing project, there are a lot of variables, and customers frequently ask for assistance in deciding on a printing option and the quantity of personalized coffee bags they can afford. If you’ve decided on a configuration, here are some basic recommendations and an overview of some of the possible coffee packing alternatives.
Side Gussetted Bags
Coffee bags with side gussets have become another popular coffee packaging option. It’s less expensive than flat-bottom coffee container, yet it still keeps its shape and can stand on its own. It can also support greater weight than a bag with a flat bottom.
Quad Seal Bags
Our quad seal pouches are perfect for your coffee. Due of the additional branding space, the gusseted bag is a popular coffee packaging design. Gusseted sides hold extra coffee and, like our other stand-up coffee pouches, look excellent on a shelf.
8-Seal Square Bottom Bags
The flat bottom coffee bag, also known as block bottom coffee bags, is a classic design that has been around for a long time. When the top is folded down, it stands alone and provides a traditional brick shape. This arrangement has the disadvantage of being less cost-effective in lesser numbers.
Stand up Pouches
Coffee bags that stand up are a “new school” design. They are less expensive than the other two options and have a number of advantages. It can stand alone, and most consumers are accustomed with the shape, but it also allows for the use of an insert zipper, making it simple to fill. The user can also keep their clothes fresh by using the zipper.
Flat Lay / Stick Pack
Single serving coffee bags come in stick packs or flat bags. This form of packaging can be made in a variety of ways, including flow tubing or lie flat pouches. Only use tubing if you have a form and fill machine. Stick Packs and Lay Flats are designed for filling at a slower pace. This container is ideal for sample coffee bags.
As one of the top coffee packaging manufacturers, we offer the best materials for your coffee packaging requirements. All of our coffee bags are made using industrial-strength techniques. The following is a typical coffee bag material structure:
We can also customize materials to meet your specific requirements. We make certain that the bags we use for our custom coffee bags service are made of food-use grade materials.
Coffee bags with a valve have a number of advantages. The stand up pouch, gusset bag, or block bottom pouch with a valve are the most common coffee bags with a valve. This type of coffee bag can keep your coffee beans fresh for as long as possible. Freshly roasted coffee, in general, emits carbon dioxide. Coffee bags with valves have a one-way valve that allows gas to escape while preventing air from entering the bag. Coffee bags with valves, as one type of popular coffee bean packaging, provide advantages above standard coffee bean bags.
Advantage: The coffee bag is designed in a unique way to keep the coffee fresh. Coffee bags with valve are a popular type of coffee bean packaging because they keep coffee beans fresh for a long time.
Many different types of coffee bags are compatible. Stand-up pouches, flat-bottom pouches, and gusset bags can all benefit from the valve. You may use any sort of coffee bag you like and add a valve to keep it fresh.
This is a type of custom coffee bag that may be made to fit your specific needs. This type of coffee bag allows clients to create their own coffee bag, which may then be printed according to your specifications.
Printing New York offers a unique printing service for bespoke coffee bags. We specialize in the packaging of coffee bags. We strive to provide the greatest coffee bean packaging service for our customers by creating elegant coffee bags, selecting safe materials, and maintaining a close relationship with them.
Coffee packaging comes in a variety of styles and materials. Direct packing is simple to create package damage since coffee naturally emits carbon dioxide after roasting, and long-term contact to the air causes aroma loss, oxidation of oil and aromatic components in coffee, and a reduction in the quality of finished products. As a result, coffee packaging is quite a significant part of the selling process.
Coffee bags are often classified into the following categories:
Non-airtight flexible packaging:
This is the most cost-effective option. Small local bakeries typically employ it because it ensures prompt delivery. Coffee beans can be consumed in a reasonable amount of time. Coffee beans can only be preserved in this manner for a short period of time.
After filling the coffee, vacuum and seal it to keep it airtight. The packing can only be packaged after the coffee has been degassed for a period of time due to the creation of carbon dioxide during the roasting process, hence there is a storage gap of several days. Coffee beans can be stored for a longer period of time than coffee powder. Because it is not isolated from the air during storage, the cost is inexpensive. In this manner, coffee should be consumed in ten weeks.
Packaging for one-way exhaust valves:
Roasted coffee is placed in a one-way exhaust valve. This vent valve allows gas to escape but not inside the room. There is no need for a separate storage stage, but because to the outgassing process, the aroma will be partly lost. It prevents the development of rotting flavor, but it does not prevent the loss of scent.
The most expensive method is pressure packing, which can store coffee for two years. The coffee can be vacuum sealed after a few minutes of roasting. Maintain the right pressure in the package after introducing some inert gas. The coffee beans are maintained under pressure, allowing the scent to pour onto the fat, enhancing the beverage’s flavor.
Coffee Bags Keep Your Coffee Safe
The first job of your bags is to keep your coffee safe. Protecting your coffee, whether it’s whole bean, flavored, or ground, is essential. Many businesses believe that adopting a foil laminated film structure provides the best protection. To be honest, this is a throwback. While every printed packaging should be comprised of laminated film of some form, aluminum foil isn’t always the ideal option. Foil, like the foil we use at home, isn’t extremely strong, but it has great barrier characteristics when laminated to other films. The issue with foil is that it is often pricey and difficult to find in stores. This means that once the foil is bent or folded, it does not flex or recoil. This causes permanent creases and lines in the coffee bags, which can eventually lead to weak places and even holes. Consider employing metalized film, also known as Mylar, or a clear film, as recent developments in clear film have resulted in excellent barrier qualities. Remember that clear film can be printed to make it opaque. Foil should be more expensive than metalized and clear film.
Your Brand Is Promoted through Coffee Packaging
Your brand and company must be promoted through printed packaging. Often, a business will begin by using standard coffee bags or even stock stand-up pouches and applying a label, but they will quickly find that nothing beats custom printing. The vibrant colors, the available space or “real estate” to inform the world where your beans are harvested, the lengths you go to safeguard the flavor and aroma, your environmental initiatives, and everything else that helps you tell the world why your coffee is the greatest. It’s a proven truth that a printed coffee bag is less expensive than a standard coffee bag with printed and affixed labels. When you consider the cost of a stock coffee bag, the label or labels, and the work required to apply the label (exactly or you’ll have to start over), a printed packaging solution will be less expensive.
Custom packaging increases the likelihood of your product being purchased.
Finally, your printed coffee packaging must entice customers and retailers to try and buy your product! Remember that you only get one chance to create an impression on a store shelf, and if your coffee bags are slouched, not printed nicely, and/or seem unappealing with a crooked label or one with a large air bubble, you may lose a potential customer. Consider whether your coffee bags contain a ziplock, a gas release valve, a tin tie, or even a resealable sticker for ease of entry and exit from the pouch. Consider the type of printed coffee packaging you use: is it a standard quad seal-center fin style, or are you making a statement with something distinctive and different like a stand up pouch, a flat bottom, or even a flexible box bag style?
What is CMYK?
In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.
Accepted File Formats
We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.
Rich Black vs 100% Black
Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.
What Paper to Choose?
Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.
What is Font Outlining?
We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.
We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.
When printing, 300 PPI is the best print resolution for digital printers. The design of a file with a resolution below 300 PPI will result in blurring and pixelization. On the other hand, you should not design with a resolution higher than 300 PPI. As far as the eye can see, there will be no difference in print quality. It will also make your file much larger (increase file upload/transfer time).
We always recommend 300 PPI drawings to print, but we also know that sometimes you do not have the ability to edit your drawings. If you cannot print your files with a resolution of 300 PPI, you will have to take some measures to ensure that a lower resolution works for you.
We recommend that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (i.e. Photoshop) to 300 PPI before you start drawing your file. Increasing the resolution after the start will still result in blurring/pixelation.
All the work is checked by our team before printing. If we have any problems with the files, we will contact you and advise you how to change the format. Please note that conversion of both color and size mode will be done automatically without prior information.
During the analysis of the illustrations, we check
– if the files are presented in one of the accepted formats (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the number of pages is correct
– if the file supplied is greyscale (only if you have ordered a color print)
– if the file is the right size (otherwise we will scale your work to the desired size, however, this may result in a reduction in resolution. No additional bleeding will be added to the process either).
– if the drill lines have been specified
– if the appropriate fonts have been incorporated into the file.
To ensure that there are no white areas on the printed product, all files submitted should have a 2mm bleed on each side. This means that your design (both images and graphics) should always be 2mm larger than the actual print format. Failure to do so may result in slight variations, resulting in white margins. To ensure that the fonts and essential elements of your drawing are visible, place them at least 3mm away from the final format (not including bleeding) and do not use edges as edges in layouts.
– If you are submitting data for printing in an open format, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g. A4 size including bleed should be 301×214mm).
– If you are submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging or any other promotional technology products, please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on each side
– Envelopes should be supplied with a 1mm bleed.
– The textile elastic frames must be bled 15mm.
If you need more information, please consult our artwork instructions.
You can upload files in the following formats:
JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, PS (PostScript)
Make sure that your PDF file is saved directly from your graphics program in standard PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a). To avoid problems with layers and transparencies during the printing process, it is recommended to use the “1.3 compatibility” setting when saving artworks.
If you are sending TIFF files, be sure to reduce the number of layers to one.
To avoid problems with color variation or printed image, please do not use pre-separated data from DCS EPS.
