FAQ about our Stand Up Pouches

What products are stand up pouches for?

Sturdy stand up pouches bags are usually used for food, but can be filled with almost any product. The most popular size we offer is 4.375″ x 6″ x 2″, which can hold up to 2 ounces.

In addition to the bottom wedges, the steps also come with the following features to make it much easier to display, open and store:

The zippers keep food fresh by sealing the bag after use. This also makes it easier to store leftover food without having to use cans or other containers. The tearable compartments make it easier to open the bags. No scissors or other tools are needed.

Thermal seals make the bags airtight. This makes the packaging of liquid products much more convenient. Hanging holes allow food to be hung from the hook if there is not enough shelf space. Choose a round hole or euro (sombrero) for hanging.

Sturdy bags also help extend the life of your products. The barrier film prevents moisture and oxygen from entering the bags and thus prolongs the life of both food and non-food products.

Barrier films provide different levels of protection. The Oxygen Transfer Rate (OTR) shows how much oxygen can pass through the packaging. A lower OTR means less oxygen can pass through the material.

How are stand up pouches made?

A stand up pouch, or insertion bag is a laminated bag made of multiple layers of polyethylene film, aluminum foil and other materials. As these packages can be printed with virtually any logo, color and design – they have enormous potential for creative advertising.

The life of the fake bag starts with the fact that through the raw material – usually plastic – it is a set of plows to turn the W-shaped wedges to the bottom. Without these wedges, the elevator bag cannot stand on its own. A zipper is sealed next to the top end of the bag, if the bag has one. Zipper fasteners are a common access method. Other methods of access include nozzles, openings, and perforations that can be reclosed.

After the wedge is formed, the vertical closure is then rotated. These form the side walls of the flip-flop bag. These vertical seals are glued to the bottom of the wedge and zipper. A vertical cut is made through one side to accommodate the container. Once the container is placed, the bag is sent from where it is delivered to a station that fills the bag with the product. The bag is then grouped with several other bags, packed in a larger box, and then sent to another station.

In the second production station, the closure is closed. In this season, the bag is sealed for the second time. This sealing takes place above the zipper. A cut-off is made between the top zipper and the top zipper to facilitate opening the bag. The package is then sent to its destination, which can be a small family retail store or a large supermarket.

What are the advantages of stand up pouches?

Insertion packaging and gust packaging have many potential benefits, depending on the needs of your product or its contents.

These include:

Resealing & Closing

The insertion packs are often resealed, which is a great advantage for consumers. For example, with zippers that can be closed, perishable snacks such as vegetables stay fresh longer. They also make it much easier to open and close food for people with disabilities or for people with dexterity difficulties.

Transparent windows

Transparency is an option with covers. These windows allow consumers to see the contents of a container and often increase the likelihood of purchase. As noted in a recent article in Forbes magazine, “In addition to the ingredients listed on the label, consumers also want to see a physical product before they buy it.

Recycling / Environment

These bags are often recyclable or can be made from recyclable or environmentally friendly materials, which is a key ingredient in today’s market expectations. There are limitations when entering multi-layer bags that include foil and other barrier layers.

Less materials

Less materials are needed for the production of stand up pouches and packaging than many competing options, reducing waste and production costs as well as carbon dioxide emissions. As they are lighter, this also reduces transportation costs. Consumers also look for greener options, so these packages are attractive to retailers.

Spouts or Nozzles

The nozzles added to the top of these pockets allow products such as sauces and other liquids to be poured easily without additional clutter.

Long Lasting

Although the bags are made of flexible materials, they are robust and designed to stand – even if the bag is only partially filled. That’s why they are ideal for resealing products or objects that can be used with interruptions.

Handles & Grips

The handles are an additional choice for standing covers. By adding them, consumers can easily carry the product without the need for an additional bag. In addition, the trend to use foot bags is consistent with changing eating habits. People are moving away from three main courses to eat snacks and small items during the day.

According to a 2021 study by Technomic, consumers are now (compared to 2020) more likely to replace one or two dishes a day with snacks. 80% of consumers say they eat at least once a day. Ascending bags also support this trend, as they are often overfilled and/or may contain small portions, which is ideal for disposable meals.

Can pouches be made to be biodegradable?

Stand up bags are generally not a form of biodegradable packaging. Although many packaging materials made of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are biodegradable, they require a lot of time and certain specific conditions to be effectively biodegradable in landfills. Biodegradable materials are made of things like paper, starch, wood pulp, potatoes, cotton, sugar beet, corn, to name a few. However, although the insertion bags are not made of these materials, this does not mean they are harmful to the environment.

Each vertical pouch is manufactured using a very energy efficient process, in which several layers of special film are laminated together to form a barrier bag that protects the content from fumes, odors, moisture, air, plagues and/or light, depending on what a certain product needs. Important for our discussion is the fact that although insert bags are made of multiple layers of film, in reality they require 12% less film to produce than most other packaging bags.

Of course, less material ultimately results in less waste, but there are other environmental benefits. Less material means less weight, which means less fuel per unit of product in bag transportation. We are very focused on environmental protection here at Printing New York.

What are CBD pouches?

The medical marijuana industry is becoming more mainstream and with it the state-mandated packaging protocols are only getting stricter. To stay on top of these changing regulations, you need a packaging and printing partner who is quick to adapt to the needs of the market. Printing New York will help you create unique, child-resistant cbd pouches for your medical marijuana products. We offer cannabis dispensaries, growers and consumers custom solutions for all their packaging needs. Whether you require tamper evident packaging or child resistant solutions we are here to help and ensure all compliance to state guidelines and regulations.

Do you need a customized packaging solution for your product that is also safe for children? The ideal answer to this question is childproof racks. Our child bags keep your products fresh, compact and easy to carry. They are also designed to reduce the risk of children successfully opening the packaging and entering it with potentially harmful or dangerous substances.

Our sustainable child-proof pouches protect a wide range of products:

– Medical marijuana
– Edibles
– Dried herbs and flowers
– Evaporation and Tobacco Products
– Detergents and cleaning products
– Grass and garden

Our cbd pouches can accommodate a larger volume and make the exhibition appealing. At the bottom of the bag there is an insert, so that the bag can stand on its own and place its mark in the front and center. They come in three popular sizes to suit your different product packaging needs: 4,375″. x 6″ x 2″, which can hold up to 2 ounces.

The 4″ x 6-½” x 2″ bag can contain up to ¼ oz and is ideal for small items such as lip balms, simple snacks or pharmaceutical gift samples. The 5″ x 8.5″ x 2.5″ bag has a capacity of ½ oz. Medical devices and small electronics are ideal for storage in these bags. The 6″ x 9,5″ x 3″ dimensions have a capacity of 1 oz – ideal for larger food products such as cosmetics, accessories and household dry cleaning.
