Digital Printing to Create Customized Stand Up Bags

Digital printing is easily one of the most popular trends in the making of customized stand up bags. It involves uploading images on a computer and creating pouches imprinted with the desired artwork. You can also use handmade logos and other marketing materials. In either case, digital printing allows us to create customized standup bags in small quantities.

Digital printing comes in handy when you need only a small number of printed pouch bags. For example, you may be organizing a trade show and you need only a handful of printed creative food packaging for display or you may be looking for some sample bags to impress your client. It is not the right solution if you need hundreds or thousands of printed standup bags. Digital printing is expensive because it does not make use of plates or cylinders. Therefore, its use is and should be limited to situations where only a small number of printed bags are needed.

At StandUpPouches.net, we offer several printing options besides digital printing. We usually use the rotogravure printing technology which produces high quality artwork in crisp and bold colors. We also offer flexographic printing solutions, if that is what our customers want.

If you don't know which printing technique is suitable for your specific need, you just need to drop us a line and our team of engineers will be more than happy to help you out.

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
